I can’t believe I haven’t reviewed Labello Fruity Shine Cherry Tinted Lip Balm yet. It’s one of my favourite lip balms ever. If you think the pretty red tube looks familiar, but you’ve never heard of Labello before, don’t worry. You’re not going crazy. Labello is also sold under the Nivea Lip Care brand in some countries. Whatever its name, if you love cherry-scented lip products, this is a must. Otherwise, there are lots of other flavours for you to try. So, what is it that makes this lip balm special?
Let’s start with the scent. It smells like cherry candy: sweet and delicious. However, it doesn’t really taste like anything, which is a good thing because, if its flavour was as yummy as its scent, it wouldn’t last long on my lips. I’d just eat it all lol. As it is, it lasts from 2 to 3 hours on me, depending on whether I eat/drink or not.
The texture, thanks to the emollient properties of Castor Oil (which can also bind water in the skin) and Octyldodecanol, glides smoothly on the lips and nourishes them, keeping them soft and moisturized for a few hours. It is also great to prevent or heal dry and chapped lips during the cold winter months. And it also contains Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate (UVB filter) and Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane (Avobenzone, UVA filter) to protect your pout from the sun rays all year long! The SPF is only 10, so quite low, but it’s still better than nothing.
Once applied, this tinted lip balm leaves behind a soft wash of red colour on the lips. Although the colour is subtle, the shine isn’t. The lip balm has a shiny, wet-look finish that’s really beautiful. And if you want a more intense colour payoff, you can always layer it. Overall, Labello Fruity Shine Cherry Tinted Lip Balm is a delicious treat for the lips: it’s moisturizing, shiny, affordable, and provides a hint of colour and sun protection!
