Natio Shea Butter & Tinted Lip Balm Review
Today I am reviewing two lip balms from the Australian brand, Natio. I received these lip balms one two different subscription boxes this year.
₹ 295 for 4 g
About the Product:
The Natio lip balms comes in many variants and I received the Natio Shea Butter lip balm and the tinted lip balm in the shade “Angel”. Both the lip balms comes in a retractable tube form which is sturdy and travel friendly. They have subtle smell and the shea butter lip balm do not have any tint/color but the tinted lip balm is slightly pink in color. The shea butter lip balm applies smoothly, moisturizes the lips and the effect lasts when used overnight. The lip balm is good to use under lipsticks as it is not waxy or slippery, but the lips will not feel moisturized all day long. I have dry lips and the moisturization effect is enough for me all through the year. It heals lightly chapped lips, but if your lips are very dry, prone to cracks then this might take few days to heal. On the other hand, the tinted lip balm has a waxy texture and does not apply smoothly. If you re-apply, it forms a waxy layer on the lips and the tint does not show on the lips at all. The one good thing about this lip balm is that it effectively moisturizes the lips though it does not fare well in the texture or the tint. Both the lip balms did not have the “feel-new” factor and felt like old stock though shea was better but the tinted one felt really old. I am not sure whether I am the one who feels like that or whether others had the same experience as they came in the subscription boxes.

Prettykooll rating: Shea lip balm: 3.5/5; Tinted lip balm: 1/5
I am not sure whether they did not fare well as they felt like old stock and I received both in different subscription boxes or they did not live up to its standard especially the tinted one. But, I would skip these lip balms as there are many other good options available in the market. Have you used them? Did they fared well on you?
