|Dior Creme De Rose Lip Balm (Retails for $27)|
|I love the simple packaging.|
|No color pay off so don't expect that. I wasn't expecting it but the color of the balm itself is beautiful.|
I purchased my Christian Dior Creme De Rose Lip Balm from a Sephora store for $27 (~$28 with tax). Luckily my Sephora had a bunch in stock. I always check the Sephora website to make sure my local store has it in stock.
I couldn't wait until I got home to try it. When I got to my car I immediately tried it. From the first moment I put it on, I knew I would love it. The first thing I noticed, however, was the smell. I am not a fan of scented makeup products in general. This product smells like roses. The scent was kind of strong for my taste. I apply this product with my finger and apply an ample amount on my lips. I immediately noticed how soft my lips felt. The balm itself did not feel thick but my lips felt moisturized. I would normally put a lot of Carmex on because of how dry my lips were. I had cracks on the corners of my lips, which I absolutely hate. I could not believe how quickly this lip balm helped soothe the cracks.
After using this for a few days, I noticed that I got through a top layer of the product. Now the balm seems easier to get to. I do find that I need to clean my finger after application so I don't get it everywhere. I would say this is something that I would apply first thing in the morning and then again at night. Today, I went to my first clinical shift for the quarter. I applied the lip balm at 4:30 a.m. and did not reapply at all today. I didn't feel the need to reapply the lip balm until I got home at the end of the shift. I feel like it is a long wearing product.
I did not notice a plumping action from this lip balm but I did notice how smooth my lips appeared. I didn't notice any cracks on my lips whatsoever. I am absolutely impressed with this product. I would repurchase this again and again and again.
I hope you try it out! I really love this product.
