You'll know from my latest video that the sweet people over at Birchbox were kind enough to send me the Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips to review. I have been
a little crazy about cosmetics and skincare products lately, so needless to say I was pumped to try out this hyped product!
So first things first: the packaging. I am huge on good packing, great colors and the perfect fonts. Thankfully, Dr. Lipp passed all my tests! The tube's size is very similar to most lip products if not even a little on the larger size so nothing but positive things there. The cap screws off and you squeeze out the product - pretty basic, yes, but that's where the product carries it over the edge.
The product is 100% natural and has many purposes. As it's name states, it was originally intended for nursing women to ease the soreness from beastfeading. The brand boasts that it can be used for many other purposes like diaper rash, sunburns and split ends. For now I'm just sticking with what I know and focusing it as a lip balm, plain and simple.
Although it comes out a with a bit of a yellow tinge, the product applies clear. It's super thick and totally moisturizing - perfect for night time use which is what I've been doing. For the last week it's been a part of my bedtime routine. Some nights I use a Lush Lip Scrub [in either Popcorn or Bubblegum] and follow it up with a slather of this stuff or I use it without a scrub and just let it do it's magic. What's extra amazing is that the balm isn't sticky at all so you don't have to worry about it getting in your way of feeling like your going to bed with a sticky lipgloss on. Each morning I wake up with a good amount of balm still on! I have no idea how I don't wipe it all off on my pillowcase overnight, but it somehow lasts. Best of all, after a week of use, my lips are looking & feeling better than ever.
If you're interested in trying Dr. Lipps Original Nipple Balm for Lips for yourself, you can purchase it in the Birchbox Shop here. It's only $14.50 and it's currently offered with free shipping!
