Figs & Rouge Aloe and Mint Balm: Review

Hello girls,
I have such fond memories associated that things that in tin boxes….they were always filled with nice goodies like chocolate or even better chocolate cookies. So when I opened my February Vellvette Box and saw this cute little green tin box inside it…I was pretty excited to try it.
Did it live up to my expectation….read on to know.

Price: Rs. 549 for 17 ml
What the company has to say about it:
If you’ve been looking for a great multitasking product, voila! This one’s probably the greatest multitasking product to ever feature on the international beauty box scene – Figs & Rouge Aloe and Mint Balm. Perfect for those lips that chap and peel, cuticles that go haywire, skin that itches and burns, feet that embarrass and eyebrows that just can’t stay in shape! And best of all, it’s 100% natural, organic and petroleum free – no restrictions on how many times you can use  it!
Fig & Rouge Aloe and Mint Balm as I have already mentioned comes in a cute tin box. The cap  doesn’t come off too easily so no worries when you decide to carry it around. But this lip balm has the tendency to melt when the temperature increases so you have to be careful when you open it.

The product is a clear white balm with a waxy texture and for the lack of better example it just looks and feels like ghee. It smells really minty when you first apply it but the fragrance subsides  with time. There is a cooling sensation after application which I personally really like especially in this hot weather.

The balm works really well on dry and chapped lips.You use it once and whoosh….soft and moisturized lips. However its staying power is pathetic. You have keep reapplying it every hour or so.
Now while the product does says that you can it is not specifically a lip balm, I tried using it as a cuticle cream and I have to say I am much more happy with its effect on the nails. Also even though the company talks about using it on the face and eyebrows, considering I already have oily skin and the fact that the lip balm becomes really oily kind of liquid on application and has the tendency to bleed, I decided not to try the other usage options.

Final Verdict, not worth the hype. Yes it does moisturize dry and chapped lips almost instantly but applying it again and again is definitely a big pain. Even though you can use it in many ways, it is still a little to expensive. Not something that I would repurchase.
