When they were first introduced online, Maybelline Baby Lip Balms became quite the hype in the entire blog universe. Or maybe I am exaggerating? Haha. But seriously, many people were so into it that I had to do everything possible so that I can also check it out. I saw a lot of bloggers review a few, if not all of the variants and I had my eyes set on those pink ones which gives a cute pinkish lips after.
And so when I finally chance upon them on the Maybelline counter, I was looking at the variants and was wondering why they only have four. I even got into a small chuchu fight with the attendant because I told her that this is not the original baby lips :D I recited all the shades that I saw online when it suddenly became obvious to me. The ones here in the Philippines are different from the ones that most of you guys might have bought :( Sad story ayt.
The product promises results in a week's time.. Hmm isnt that something? I guess that explains the hype on these when they first came out in the market.
Its also preloaded with SPF20, so you have nothing to worry about when your out in the sun because you've got protection already.
Instructions, ingredients and a more detailed specification can be found on the back of the packaging. I dont know for you guys, but I have this habit of reading everything on the packaging. I guess I just want to be more informed as to what I am about to use, but most of the time I'm just bored :D
WHAT IT CLAIMS:
> Instant 8 hour moisture.
> Sheds away rough and dryness, revealing a supple, smooth and cushioned lips all day long.
> Reduce fine lip lines.
> Increase elasticity
> Increase suppleness
I really love the packaging of Maybelline Lip Balms, especially the Baby Lips. They are all so cute and funny and trendy as well as the colors reminds me of color blocking. Its really an attention grabbing product so once you see it on the shelf you will be drawn to it.
Once the cover is twisted, you will then see the lip balm. In this case, its colorless or just plain white. The flavor is oxidizing berry and it really does smell like berry :3
Then you have to slowly twist the bottom for the lip balm to come out. Basically works just like most lip balm products or lipsticks.
I usually use this product at night, because I feel want to wake up to a nice result. Haha. Seriously, I know lip balms are usually worn at broad daylight, but when I happen to wake up to my lips peeling after applying this one at night, then I just made it a point to use this at time so that only me can see my flaky lips in the morning. Though Im not sure if peeling is one of the benefits of this product.. But if the advertisement says "Get back the lips that you were born with", then I guess this mini exfoliating benefit could be up to something,
I am not really the lip balm type of person, but I bought this one because I just want to see if it can really give me that baby lips lol. So I just have to put up with oily like substance on my lips at night. Now dont get me wrong, it isnt really that bad. Maybe I am just not used to lip balms, is all.
Overall, I would give this product a 4 out of 5. I am still using this once in a while at night and when I wake up, the peeling is still there. I cant really say that my lips re dry because they're not chappy or anything.. But I guess everytime I use this my lips end up peeling. And I would like to think of that as a good thing :)
Recommend? Yes. Repurchase? Maybe.. If only the US versions are available here, then I wouldnt mind that much. But seeing that we are stuck with only 4 (not to mention boring and colorless) variations, then I guess I won't be buying again.
