If you’re into fragrance-free products, then you have to check out Mentholatum’s Lip Pure Lip Balm. As it comes with five natural oils, it’s perfect for those who have chapped lips. We all know that natural products can be quite pricey however this one is super affordable.
Lip Pure by Mentholatum comes in two variants: Fruit Extracts and Botanical Oils. It’s also worth noting that it is formulated with 100% food-grade ingredients.
The lip balm comes in a green and yellow cardboard packaging with all the necessary details printed out on it. It comes in a slick tube that won’t even take much space in your handbag. Pretty simple and basic but definitely travel-friendly.
Touch & Smell 4/5
For those who aren’t into strong fragrant lip balms, you can consider trying the Lip Pure with Fruit Extract. Whereas the one with Botanical Oils comes with a light honey fragrance which is quite nice. Besides that, it’s also non-tinted which means it doesn’t transfer any colour to the lips except for providing it with a nice soft shine. Another point is that the lip balm isn’t too glossy as well and it definitely leaves your lips looking very natural and hydrated.
As it comes with no shimmer particles and tint, this clear lip balm has a downside which means it would not help conceal those with pigmented lips. But on a bright side, it can help moisturise your lips before applying any lipstick on top of it. The texture of the lip balm itself is great as it is quite light and smooth. It doesn’t feel like there’s anything on the lips either, so that’s a really good thing.
The lip balm contains five natural essential oils which are a combined blend of Argan Oil, Marula Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Shea Butter and Avocado Oil. All these to help keep your lips nourished and moisturised.
When it comes to finding the right lip balm for those with sensitive skin can certainly consider using these Lip Pure lip balms. It provides long-lasting hydration as well as locking in the moisture all thanks to the three types of honey bee ingredients: Beeswax, Royal Jelly and Manuka Honey.
More than that, it is also enriched with natural plant ingredients like the Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Olive Oil and Rosemary Leaf Extract that can help protect and nourish the lips leaving it beautifully soft and supple.
Those interested can get the Mentholatum Lip Pure Lip Balm at all Watsons nationwide for only RM15.04. For a lightweight lip balm that contains natural ingredients, we’d say it’s quite a steal.
There are more pros than cons when it comes to this lip balm especially when it is actually free of fragrances, colourants and preservatives. Another reason why you should always have this lip balm with you is that its moisturisation can last up to 5-6 hours. Even when it has lost its shine, your lips would not feel chapped and it’ll be much hydrated than it was before.
