Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm Review & Swatches
I am loving Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm at the moment. It’s been pretty cold the last few days and my lips suffer for it as they get dry and chapped.
You ever just torture yourself with chapped lips? You KNOW you shouldn’t be licking them but you still do anyway to gain some sort of small victorious relief….but the relief is so damn short lived and just made things worst.
That’s why we all needed a good moisturizing balm to get us through the long, hard winter and if it’s tinted? All the nicer!
Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm is available in six shades for around $6.99-$8.99 each.
These are a long, thin oval shaped balm that provide lips with a hint of sheer tint and a formula that moisturizers lips and leaves them looking full and more defined. Over extended use it helps improve the texture of lips and restores the look of rosiness according to the packaging plus and SPF 20 helps protects them.
I’ve used them over the course of three weeks and I’ve seen visible improvement in my lips over that time. Firstly, they actually heal dry lips (not chapped ones though) on a single use. They have a smooth, balmy texture that’s very lightweight and comfortable with a sheer touch of color that’s quite noticeable. On my dry lips with a few hours of wear I’ll notice dryness and flaky areas are smoother and softer. LOVE them for that reason along. I did notice that if my lips are dry and chapped with redness they didn’t really work so well at healing however, for just dryness alone they do provide a very moist, hydrating feeling with a hint of a sheen that really softens my lips up.
The nice part is they have a lovely hint of tint to go along with the formula. It’s enough of a tint that you can visibly see the shade on your lips. I’m unsure about them promoting a rosier lip, they say this occurs within a week of use, but I didn’t notice as my lips are already quite pigmented as is.
Overall, if you’re looking for more moisture, hydration, and a nice hint of tint this a great way to get all three plus SPF seals the deal. I haven’t stopped using this since getting it, my fav shade, Fresh Plum, is kinda the perfect elegant rosy plum that I can use at work with a smoky eye easily! It’s nice not having to worry about retouching up my entire lipstick look as I can simply slide this on without a mirror and still enjoy a hydrating feel and some color! It does deserve to be mentioned I find the slim oval design a little awkward to use on my lips at first but you get used to the design quickly enough!
Do try ‘em!
