We've all heard the phrase 'Beauty is pain.' Well this fits that phrase perfectly, it is such a painful product.
Much like Carmex, which I struggle to get along with, this is one of those lipbalms that claims to 'tingle' when applied on the lips. What they mean by 'tingle' is actually burn, because I find that my lips are literally in pain as a result of this lip conditioner.
Blistex is a brand that I haven't heard much about or seen many reviews on but it has always taken my interest. I only have one other product from the brand, a strawberry lipbalm, but I do quite like it. This product, however, was not a favourite of mine.
The first thing I noticed when opening this was the incredibly strong smell of menthol mixed with sunscreen. It smells very...medical, if that makes sense. It is certainly not a nice scent. You can tell that this product is going to burn by just getting a whiff of it!
The product itself is quite waxy and gets very dry and hard in the pot. It is an off-yellow colour which is really not all that appealing. It takes a lot of swirling my fingers around in it to soften it enough for decent application. As always, I find pots a pain as I must get my fingers grubby.
There are however, some good points about this. On my lips it is very glossy and gives off a lovely sheen. Along with the
I have been forcing myself to use it as I was interested in whether it really was more of a heavy duty lip balm and would give me lovely, moisturised lips. It turns out that yes, it is pretty good when it comes to doing what it is supposed to do.
Because this product works, I do use it even though I really, really don't like how 'tingly' it is. I apply it before bed so that I don't have that smell following me around during the day.
Ahh this scares me D: I wouldn't want my lips to burn!ReplyDelete
Haha, yeah, it's not the nicest sensation but it's not like you have to make a trip to the hospital or anything...it's not THAT bad!Delete
I've actually never used Blistex before either, but maybe I should. Although it does sound a bit of a nuisance, the fact that it has such a high SPF for a lip product makes me think twice, especially living in Aus...ReplyDelete
Good review! I may give this a go :)
The SPF is pretty impressive I must say (though it doesn't matter for me because I use it when I go to bed anyway!) I'm not sure how much this retails for (it was passed on to me from a family member who isn't into makeup) but I wouldn't imagine it would be too much...Delete
Aww what a shame that the tingling sensation feels like a burn on you! I personally quite like the tingly feeling as it feels like my lips are being stimulated (haha) and yes, naturally turns red! I absolutely despise pot balms too as I find it so messy to dunk my fingers in (eww imagine all the germs accumulating in the pot!). Despite all this Blistex is a great brand and I agree that it gives a beautiful sheen!ReplyDelete
Interesting that you actually like the feeling, I can't stand it! :) Precisely, such little pots are adorable but so impractical! The sheen and juicy look that it gives is lovely.Delete
I survive on this stuff - I LOVE menthol sensations of lip balms and I honestly crave how strong Blistex is :pReplyDelete
Haha, I have no idea how you could possibly like the tingling/burning, but I guess it's a good thing that SOMEONE likes it! :) Honestly, your comment made me laugh :) Thank you!Delete
