It's been awhile since I reviewed a product *sigh*. Whenever I want to take pictures on the weekend (I can't on the weekday since I work), there's no sun. :/ My reviews might be late, but it's better now than never or at least I like to think so! ;)
Product Review: Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm in #25 Pink Punch
Where to purchase: drugstore, retailers, online
Price: $3.99 for 4.4 g/0.15 oz
Made in USA
Description on the site: No more basic lip balm.
Lip renew formula and 8-hr hydration for visibly renewed lips in 4 weeks.
Clinical care for baby-soft lips.
Thoughts: The first thing I do with SPF products is check the active ingredients. Thankfully, it only has octinoxate and octisalate. I try to avoid the ingredients oxybenzone and avobenzone. I'm allergic to either ingredients or both. That I'm not too sure about, but I will find out soon enough when I play around with some products that only have one of them. :X Now that I knew I wasn't allergic to the product, I had to get one. To be safe, I decided to only get one and I'm always like that with SPF products. Once I try them out and I'm okay, no allergic reaction, I tend to buy more if I like the product.
It smells like fruit punch. It smells heavenly!!! :) Unfortunately, I don't smell the fruit punch while putting it on my lips. I smell something fruity, but it's not specific. I still like the smell.
Now for the most important factor, does it hydrate my lips for 8 hours and make it baby soft? My lips feel better after several hours of wearing this especially during this winter weather with my chapped lips. Would I say it's hydrating for 8 hours? I wouldn't say that. I think it hydrates like any moisturizing lip products. Does it make my lips baby soft? I wouldn't say that unless I wear it throughout the day on daily basis.
* Maybelline; I tend to like their products.

* Not UVA; protects the inner layer of the skin.

Would repurchase: Yes, for this color. Possibly a maybe for #15 Cherry Me.

I've been obsessed with nail polishes this month *sigh*. I need to stop buying, but I'm loving the glitter and flakes that you put on top of a base color.
