Beauty Tips – Omved Lip Balm Review and Experience
Hello Girls, How is the Summer treating you all? I personally feel this year Summer is more strong and scorching and since past few days the temperatures have suddenly soared. Is it me or the hormones I don’t know, but I am sure for one thing. This is the time I have to take utmost care of my skin and so do you all. Summers are harsh on skin and if not hydrated well, can leave your skin dead, dry and tanned. One most important part of my beauty regime these days are Lip Balms. I do not know why, but my lips seem to be very sensitive and tend to dry in extreme conditions, be it hot summers or chilly winters. Thus I always keep a lip balm handy with me. After trying and testing several lip balms and lip jellies till now my “Go to” product has been Maybeline Baby lips. I need something that is really nourishing and that stays for long. Today I am reviewing Omved cosmetics Cinnamon lip balm that claims to hydrate and rejuvenate dead dry skin. Does the lip balm live up to my expectations or not? Check my review and experience with this Lip Balm.
ABOUT OMVED CINNAMON LIP BALM
Omved products claimed to be handcrafted and made up of 100% natural ingredients and so is the lip Balm. The healing balm with its natural oils like Cinnamon, Sunflower, Sweet Almond and Shea butter hydrates the lips and provides quick relief to severely dry lips.
The lip balm comes in a tiny circular tin box with a transparent cover that has the sticker of the product name and quantity. The lid is not screwed one and can easily fall off, also since it is a pot style lip balm one has to use fingers to remove the lip balm from the container. However, the tin packaging is recyclable and can be reused.
Ingredients: Kokum Butter (Garcinia indica), Shea (Butyrospermum parkii) Butter, Sweet Almond Oil (Prunus amygdalus), Macadamia Oil (Macadamia integrifolia) and Sunflower Oil (Helianthus annuus) Cinnamon Oil (Cinnamomum zeylanicum), Ascrobyl Palmitate ( Anti-oxidant)
Price and Quantity: Rs. 390/- for 8 gms.
Shelf Life: 2 years from the date of Manufacture.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH OMVED CINNAMON LIP BALM
This is my first time ever that I am using a natural lip Balm and I must tell the lip balm smells slightly of cinnamon, my favorite spice, bringing in memories of my Mom’s kitchen. The smell is very light and soothing, not at all offensive. The colour of the lip balm is off-white inside the tub, however if you take it on finger it goes transparent. It is not waxy like the commercial Vaseline based lip balms available in the market. Rather it is oily, maybe because of all the essential natural oils it is made up of.
I have chapped, pigmented and dry lips that peel easily. I am in the habit of continuously applying waxy lip balms to keep them from peeling or cracking. After I applied Cinnamon lip Balm, I could see the skin of my lip turn softer and shinier. However due to its oily nature, the Balm does not stay for long and I have to continuously keep applying it. The major hindrance I found, in doing that, was the pot packaging of the balm, which meant I had to dip my finger every time I need to reapply the balm. This same balm in a stick would be far more easy to apply and carry for me.
EFFECT OF OMVED CINNAMON LIP BALM ON MY LIPS
Despite the disadvantages, I repeatedly applied the lip balm only because I could see the change in the texture of my lips and the fact that the lip balm was made up of natural ingredients. Also, the thought that I would not be ingesting any wax/ Vaseline through my lip balm (Yes, I do eat away a lot of what is applied on my lips 😛 ) was relieving. Within a few days, I saw a marked difference in the texture of my lips, they were smoother and lighter in shade. It turns out, the lip balm not only hydrates the skin but also improves the pigmentation, which of-course I liked. This one lip balm reminded me of my school days when I used to apply ghee over my lips. It was runny, it was messy but it was worth it.
Pros of the Lip Balm:
1. The Omved Cinnamon lip balm is 100% natural made up of essential oils like cinnamon & almond.
2. It has a soothing smell.
3. It is hydrating and softens the lips along with reducing pigmentation.
4. Due to its oily quality the product will not finish off soon.
5. It cures chapped lips faster and naturally.
6. The product is 100% vegan and not tested on animals.
7. You can remain carefree of unconsciously ingesting it while eating food..:P
Cons of the Lip Balm:
1. The packaging is not travel friendly or easy to apply.
2. The product does not stay for long and is wiped off easily due to its oily nature, so you have to keep reapplying.
3. The price is a little on the higher side but considering the quality and natural ingredients I think its justified.
My Rating: Omved Cinnamon Lip balm is a natural lip balm with all the herbal ingredients that are safe to use on daily basis. From my experience of this lip balm, I would rate it a 4.4/5. I would love to use it on regular basis but would maybe mix it with my regular chap-stick only because of its oily nature so that it stays put and does not wipe off so easily.
