Packaging:

This lip balm comes encased in a cardboard packaging, where all the product details are mentioned. It seems Himalaya herbals have revamped the design, which looks more girlish and cute now. The product is red in colour and is secured with a cylindrical shaped red plastic cap. It has a twist-up mechanism, so fully secured and is easy to carry along.

Texture:                                                                                                  

The lip balm is darker than strawberry shade and is  cherry red in colour. The fragrance is all herbal, not at all close to strawberry. So, strawberry lovers might get a shock! The texture is smooth but sticky, feels a bit heavy on my lips.

My Experience with Himalaya Herbals Strawberry Shine Lip Care:

This is for the first time I am trying a lip balm from Himalaya Herbals. The reasons behind purchasing this balm, firstly it is enriched with the goodness of antioxidants, vitamin E, and 100% natural colour. And secondly, the brand is against animal testing, free from preservatives and other harmful chemicals (Bravo!)

To be honest, I am quite disappointed with the smell and taste of this lip balm. I would not say, the scent is awful however, I do feel this herbal smell might be bothersome to sensitive nose people. It is nowhere close to strawberry fruit essence. At first, the fragrance was totally unbearable to me but after few applications, it doesn't bother me anymore. Moreover, it is true to its claim of moisturising the dry chapped lips, yippee!

Upon application, it imparts a glossy finish but the red shade looks transparent on the lips. My lips are little bit pigmented, so might be due to that reason this particular shade doesn’t show up. Since it looks more transparent than tinted, I usually apply it underneath lipsticks for moisturising purpose :D

Wearing Himalaya Strawberry Lip Balm

The lip balm feels sticky and heavy on the lips, which is a bit annoying. It moisturises my lips properly by keeping them hydrated and soft. The staying power is good, lasts for about 4-5 hours and after that it needs reapplication. Basically, I apply this during the night time as a lip treatment balm and I get soft, supple lips next morning, which feels pretty awesome.

This lip balm accompanied me during my recent vacation to Hyderabad and I am happy that in that hot and humid place also, it didn’t melt that much! Owing to its Chapstick version style, it is quite easy to apply, carry along everywhere and also hygienic.

Plus Points:

  • Enriched with 100% natural colour, Vitamin E, and Antioxidants
  • Free from preservatives, petroleum jelly, Mineral Oil and Silicones
  • Contains Strawberry seed oil
  • Moisturizes lips really well
  • Easy to glide over the lips
  • Good staying power
  • Budget friendly
  • Convenient for travel purpose
  • Easily available

Minus Points:

  • Feels a bit heavy and sticky on the lips
  • Unpleasant smell & taste
  • Colour doesn’t show up, looks like clear balm
  • No SPF
  • Full ingredient list is not mentioned     

Rating: 4.3/5

Conclusion:


Keeping aside the fragrance and the stickiness issue, I really loved using this lip balm. It not only works wonders, provides me nourished lips, but at the same free from all harmful chemicals also, which is great! If you are into organic and herbal skincare regime, do try out this lip balm peeps.
