I have been excited to review the new Baby Lips lip balm by Maybelline and finally got round to going and picking one up from Boots. These cost £2.99 so are reasonably priced for lip balm. I brought this in hydrate as my lips have been getting quite dry over the past few months and I was drawn in by the SPF20!
I love this packaging it's really cute, I love the vibrant colours. The bullet style application makes it really easy to apply.
The ingredients in this lip balm are quite impressive, it contains; Shea Butter, Vitamin E, C & B5 & Centella Asiatica. All of these ingredients help to make the product super smooth and hydrating on my lips. The Centella Asiatica is a powerful herb from Asia used for its natural healing properties and it helps to stimulate the production on collagen type 1, which contains scar and wound healing properties.
Here are some before and after pictures to show the visible hydration on my lips after using Maybelline Baby Lips in Hydrate:
You can see the shine on my lips in the lower picture caused by the hydrating effects of this lip balm.
The lip balm has a gorgeous scent, it is a citrus scent and smells like a mixture of Haribo and Refreshers :) Heavenly.
I would say that this lip balm does not last as long as advertised. Maybelline say that the moisturising effects will last 8 hours, however, I find myself re-applying this every 2 hours or so. I don't necessarily see this as a negative.
- Reapplying often
- Awkward packaging
- Hydrating qualities
- Appearance of lips
Overall: I would say that this lip balm is the ideal product for summer. The SPF20 is ideal for the hot weather. It is an extremely moisturising product, smells gorgeous and has super cute packaging. I would definitely buy this agian. In fact I may purchase a tinted one from this range!
Let me know of your experiences with these as I would love to hear :)
