Labello is one of the most famous lip balm in the world, and was first sold in 1909. Now Labello is produced and manufactured by Beiersdorf AG. This lip balm is made for chapped, dry lips and to remove the burning sensation by applying a greasy layer on the skin. They don't make just the Strawberry version but also several others like hydro care.
The Strawberry version promises to stimulate the protecting system of your lips, prevent skin damaging and skin again and makes your lips softer. It contains the following ingredients:
Jojoba oil: This is an oil or wax that is extracted from the seeds of the jojoba shrub. You can imagine that the oil extracted from seeds is quite greasy, and so is this jojoba oil. The type of fat in this oil is for extra care for your skin and lips. Jojoba is therefore widely used in cosmetics.
Shea Butter: it is a fatty substance that soap, conditioner, cream and cosmetics contain as Labello. Also this butter is extracted from seeds of the African Shea tree. This oil is also used to protect your skin from the sun and to keep it supple. In African countries this butter is even used for medical purposes.
Labello Strawberry is for me a very good lip balm that I have used. With some lip balms I feel that they are sticky or even that they feel behind little bits. With Labello strawberry I have no problems as it absorbs within the minute into my lips. Just after applying you will feel that your lips are greasy, but that feeling dissapears and you will notice that your lips are softer, supple and you will notice a lovely strawberry taste will last for about half a minute. The Labello brand is normally more expensive than the other brands but they aren't extremely expensive and for me they are worth it. Five stars.
Labello Lip Balm strawberry
These days you got tons of products for lip care but I have to say I always stick with my favourite one: the Labello.
Price: around 2,15 pounds
Dry lips. I hate them and always seem to get them in the summer when it's warm. It's very annoying and my lips always feel very uncomfortable. Especially when I'm travelling and I don't have anything to drink. Luckily I carry the Labelo Lip Balm strawberry with me. I used this one many years ago and a few times I have used a different product but I also seem to go back to the Labello brand.
Labello is a brand which you can find almost everywhere these days. They got several products focused on lip care and the brand exists over more then 100 years! I like the classic version and works fine for me but I do like the strawberry taste with this one. The Labello Lip Balm strawberry
version makes sure that your lips feel less dry and also softer. It takes care of your lips by:
Stimulating the protecting system of your lips;
Preventing skin damage and skin aging;
Making your lips feel softer.
It takes care of your lips by using jojoba oil and shea butter. Apparently these ingredients make your lips feel softer and take care of them. I have to say after using the stick my lips actually feels much better and softer.
It's an very easy product to use and you can use the Labello every time when your lips feel dry. I often do it a few times a day, just depending how dry they really are. The stick is very easy to use and you can adjust it by rolling over your lips a few times. I don't think there's really a limit on how many times you can use the stick a day.
Almost everybody knows how annoying dry lips are and one more then the other. If you are like me you probably have tried the brand Labello before, because well it's everywhere and well known. Labello got a lot of products and the main difference is often the scent. The Labello Classic has a sweet strawberry scent and taste. It feels very nice when you apply the lip balm on your lips and they make them feel nice and soft. I would really recommend this one if you ever have dry lips.
Labello make a range of products to soften and protect your lips. The particular one is a strawberry scented one, which I got for a bit of a change.
I am not loyal to any particular brand of lip balm, I just tend to get whatever is around when I am shopping, but I do like to have lip balm with me as I can suffer from dry lips.
The product comes in packaging just like in the picture. It is a solid stick of lip balm which you push up from the tube by twisting the base, just like a lipstick. It is a very bright red in colour, exactly the same colour as the packaging. If you apply 2 or 3 layers of the product, it does give you a very slight pink colour on the lips, but nothing too obvious - it's not a lip gloss, so don't buy it particularly for the colour. Equally, don't be put off if you don't like colour from your lip balm.
The smell is definitely of strawberry, but is very weak, you can't really notice it unless you actually sniff into the tube!
The lip balm goes on smoothly and doesn't leave a thick residue or any lumps as some heavy duty balms do. The effect lasts for maybe a couple of hours. For these reasons, I would say that this is a good day to day lip balm, but for me it is not thick enough for really dry or chapped lips, with frequent applications being needed.
All in all, this is a good lip balm for day to day use which leaves your lips feeling soft and looking shiny, but is not really heavy duty enough to deal with very dry or chapped lips. However, it doesn't claim to do this, but rather is meant to keep your lips soft rather than tackling very dry lips.
I am giving it 4 stars because it does what it says on the tin, but the scent is disappointing.
Labello do a range of flavoured lip balms ad my favourite is the dragonfruit one however currently I have a strawberry lip balm in my bag and it is a very effective product for protecting your lips. It is reasonably priced at£1.20 in my local chemist and it lasts a decent amount of time depending on how often you apply a fresh coat.
It has a slight reddy pink colour when you apply it and a strong fruity strawberry scent and flavour. It comes in a small tube with a click on lid. It leaves you lips nicely moisturised and also with a nice shiny healthy look to them. It is quite a natural look as well and therefore it is not always obvious that you are wearing this when you have it on.
It is certainly very effective at preventing you from sufferring from chapped lips or if your lips have become chapped in the cold weather, in the range there are also ones with some uv protection for use in sunny weatheror on the beach.
Certainly it is a nice simple product that I woud recommend as it is reasonably priced and effective to use.
A wise person once said that putting gloss on chapped lips is like putting spandex over cellulite: not a good look. I am not much of a cosmetics person. I like moisturiser (is that a cosmetic?) and something like a lip gloss, but nothing more. But, recently although I escaped the flu, I somehow had chapped lips. Vaseline here is weird (it comes with "the smooth aroma of a baby" rather than the nice plain stuff) and is only available in big pots, not suitable for a handbag. Thus, when I saw this at my local Superama, coming with a free box of TicTacs, it quickly found its way into the basket.
Labello Strawberry is a lip balm with a fruity scent and a touch of colour. It comes in a small tube which is bright red in colour so you won't confuse it with the other similar products in the range. It is normally packaged in a plastic blister pack with a cardboard back, though the pack I got had said TicTacs stuck in there too. I like the size of it, but I also like the plastic design as it is very well made and the lid clicks in place securely when you're not using it. I had recently tried local, Mexican attempts at lip balms, and they were terrible because the lids just fell off. I tend to carry them in my pencil case (as although I frequently change bags, I always have that with me) but they left my board markers a big sticky mess, and quickly got ditched.
I often go for (normal) Vaseline or unscented/unflavoured lip balms when I want protection for my lips, so I wasn't bothered that this was strawberry scented. That said, the smell is very nice and smells of freshly picked fruit, and not synthetic as I was expecting. The lip balm itself is a bright, clown red and I was apprehensive about slicking this on as I prefer subtle to outrageous in all things cosmetic. I needn't have worried, because the colour that comes out is sheer with just a hint of red, and you don't look like you've been making out with Krusty all afternoon. I tried it on my hand and got a shiny streak but no real colour. On lips, however, it builds on the pink already there to enhance this with a shine and a smidge of red, without looking like you've got any product on. This is perfect for me, so it gets two thumbs up in this area. It also seems to plump lips slightly, though this may just be from them having a bit of extra colour on them. I had previously used the Labello/Nivea Rose stick, a similar version that is pink rather than red, but I now think I prefer the strawberry as it looks more natural on me, with the pink a little too obvious since it's a stronger, matt colour.
I was buying this product as I had chapped lips that I wanted to soften, because if I leave them too long I have a downright hideous habit of chewing on the bits of dry skin, inevitably making them worse. I wasn't sure this product would do too well, not because of its healing properties but because I also tend to lick off anything with a flavour. I was presently surprised, therefore, when my will power kicked in, the licking stopped, and I gave it time to work. The result was immediately softer lips that stayed that way for a few hours. I tend to reapply Vaseline or similar between classes, and so did the same with this. The result was my lips never felt dry during the day, and, after a few days of using it, began to feel softer at night too, when I wasn't reapplying.
I paid £1 for my Labello, but I think the UK standard is about £1.50. Available in the usual pharmacies and supermarkets. Recommended even if you normally go for clear stuff - I do, but I found this one a nice change, and at that price, a good, cheap fix too.
Did you know...?
There is an insane number of versions of Labello available throughout the world, from the sensible (the yellow SPF version for the beach) to a new Dragon Fruits ones. See the website for more details:
but the opening music is dreadfully annoying, so you'll want to hit mute immediately.
A creamy, protective and extra-smooth formula to keep your lips lush and hydrated!
