Biotique Bio Almond Overnight Therapy Lip balm Review
Today i am reviewing a lip balm from Biotique, called Bio Almond Overnight Therapy Lip balm. Biotique products are either a hit or miss for me where some worked really well and some did not. This is one of my best buys from biotique.
Price: ₹ 99 for 16 g
Biotique has recently revamped their packaging for most of the products, their face washes now come in squeeze tubes and pump dispenser. I am liking their new packaging better than the old one and they have also changed their lip balm packaging from their boring green one to a better looking one though still they come in tubs. You can also buy them from many online websites and also from the Biotique website which now sells products with new packaging.
About the Product: This soothing balm deeply nourishes and fortifies lips. Tone, texture and firmness are unproved overnight. Smooth on and around bare lips each evening before, bedtime.
Active Ingredients: Madhu (Honey), Vach (Acoruscalamus), Mulethi (Glycynhiza glabra), Was (Prun usamygdalus), Surajmukhi (Helianthus annus), Kashumbi (carthamus tincorius), Til (Sesamum indicum), Erandi (Ricinus communis), Marhum base Q.S.
Biotique makes lip balms in four different variants and they come in tubs which many might not like as it is not hygienic to use. These also came in tube forms a year ago, but they had flimsy packaging, were completely hard in texture and was not as effective as the tub ones. The one I am reviewing today is the bio almond overnight therapy lip balm with the old packaging as I got it few months ago, but I hope the new packaging might have hit the stores now. The lip balm is golden yellow color with shimmers in it and thick in texture. There is actually no need for shimmers in an overnight lip balm and it has a spicy fragrance, does not smell of almonds at all which fades away after some time post application. Once applied to lips it instantly smoothens and moisturizes the lips but if you layer it, it gives the feeling of just remaining on top of the lips and not getting completely absorbed. But, it is not a problem as it is a lip balm to be used at night time as an overnight lip balm. It works really well on chapped, dried lips, healing and moisturizing them overnight itself. If, your lips are really in a very bad condition, it definitely works well and makes your lips supple in a couple of days. The lip balm does what it claims, it improves the tone, texture, firmness of lips and also nourishes them. It is a great product at a very affordable price tag. Another thing I noticed is that it improves the lip color with continuous use. Though I do not have highly pigmented lips, still I was able to see the difference and it did reduce whatever little pigmentation I had and made my lips rosier. But, I noticed this change only after using for 3-4 months continually and if you keep using it your lips remain in a very good condition. I think it is due to the presence of almonds, as almonds are very well known for decreasing pigmentation. Winter in Turku is very harsh and this lip balm is being my savior here and it equally works well when the climate is hot and dry when I am in India. Though I get bored of using it for long, I make sure using it during winters and one small tub lasts me to 7-8 months. I use other lip balms like Lotus Herbals lip balm during other times of the year.
Moisturizing dry lips and the effect lasts pretty long
Heals chapped lips overnight
Helps in improving the texture of lips
Reduces lip pigmentation
One tub lasts for a long time
Affordable and easily available both in shops and online
Some might find a problem with the tub packaging, but I did not find any problem with the product going bad even after using it for months together.
But, still the packaging is very boring
Nothing else as it works well as a highly nourishing overnight lip balm and fulfill all its claims
