Review : Chapstick Active Lip Shield 365


Hello !!

Everybody loves beautiful soft pink lips, I’m no different. So, when I received this chapstick in my May fab bag I got very excited but due to so many lip balms and butters in stash I didn’t open the packaging for a while. Chapstick is trusted and popular brand of lip care from USA. So, receiving this product as a bonus in that fabbag was a win win for me.

Price – Rs209 for 4g

Packaging

The lipbalm comes in a retractable stick with click clock cap.. It’s a common packing of most of the lip balms available in market right now. Packaging is travel friendly.

Product Claim

Helps prevent sunburn. Higher SPF gives more sun burn protection. Helps prevent and temporarily protects chafed, chapped or cracked lips.

Usage

Apply liberally before sun exposure and as needed. Reapply at least every 2 hours. Use a water resistant sunscreen if swimming or sweating.

Texture

It’s creamy but not too creamy; it glides easily on the lips. It smells like lemonade, unique delightful citrusy scent it has. The downside is, it leaves a white sheen on my lips after application.

My Experience

Even though the product smells fantastic and has a little creamy texture, yet it didn’t stick to its claim. It didn’t give my lips the right amount of moisturization, leaving them chapped. Instead of moisturizing my lips, it leaves my lips more dry chapped. The major downside of this product is that it is not at all comfortable on lips; it feels as if you’re carrying some extra weight on the lips. As I mentioned before, it leaves a white flaky layer on the lips. The good about this lip balm is it gives year long protection i.e. it is suitable for all the seasons and specially in summers as it comes with broad spectrum SPF 50 that provides full protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays.

Recommendation

This lip balm certainly did not live up to its claims. I’m quite disappointed in the product. I might like other variants of Chapstick but not this one for sure. Only for the sunscreen purpose you can use it but then make sure you top it us with another lip moisturizer for keeping the dryness at bay.

Rating – 2 out of 5 !!
