Superdrug Pearl Lip Balm
Advantages: Works well, clean to apply
Disadvantages: The colour!!
I recently asked my husband Mark to pop into Superdrug and pick me up some lip balm in his lunch break, I wanted one to keep in my coat pocket and for this I prefer one that's like a lipstick, they are so much easier to apply when you are out and about, he chose this one purely because its pink.
Superdrug Pearl Lip balm is sold attached to a pink card, the Superdrug logo is shown in silver at the top, beneath this the customer is informed that this is Pearl Lip Balm with a hint of shimmer and colour. Apart from a big lip print across the card there is no other information on the front of the packaging.
The back of the card gives the ingredients for those who wish to read them and states that the balm will help nourish and protect dry and cracked lips and also add a little shimmer to your lips.
The lip balm is sold in a pink twist up tube just like regular lipstick, and the balm is also a pale pink colour with a slight pearly effect, I personally prefer this type of lip balm, its easier to use if you are out and about and you don't have to poke your finger into the pot to get the balm out, this always results in having to scrape it from under my finger nails. The balm is a pale pearly pink colour which is designed to add a shimmer to your lips.
As far as lip balm goes this is good, its easy to apply and relieves sore chapped lips quickly without drying them out, its not as sticky as some lip balms I've tried and feels comfortable when I've got it on. Its the added colour I have a problem with. A pink shimmer sounds nice but once applied it looks awful, it seems to drain any colour I have making me look drab and ill, in fact I had this on one night and my husband mark actually woke me up to see if I was ok it made me look that bad!
This colour issue may be just me others may like the hint of colour but if I buy the Superdrug Lip Balm again I will definitely choose the plain one, I hated the colour and after all it doesn't make the lip balm work any better.
Superdrug are currently selling this for 99p.
Summary: Not one I will be buying again
