[productsample/affiliatelink] I did a quick search on this site for the Omorovicza Perfecting Lip Balm and discovered that I last reviewed it in 2012! So, it’s very well worth a revisit because I still love it as much as I did then.
It’s a big leap from every day lip balms to the luxury lip balm sector but with the odd exception (Lanolips is one) it’s an area that I’m prepared to splash out on because I can see the difference. My lips are quite sensitive so while initially, any old thing will do, if I use a basic one too often then I get drier lips than when I started which is clearly not the objective. I do splash out on Sisley lip balm (a cool £50 unless I can find it a bit cheaper on line) and also love By Terry’s version and they definitely work better – and longer term – than your average balm. I haven’t had dry lips all summer and that’s down to a daily dose of either of the two luxury brands above.
Omovicza’s balm is a mix of shea butter, peptides, plum oil, hyaluronic spheres and eucalyptus which gives it a mild sugar-mint type hit – if I could change one thing, it would be to take out the eucalyptus because I’d rather have it without that menthol-ish undertone. But, that’s personal choice. In terms of texture, you can see that it’s immediately soft; you don’t have to work to get at it if you see what I mean. I use a little applicator (when I can find it) but otherwise dive in with clean fingers. You only need a tiny bit to get a lightly milky gloss finish which I love, and it’s effective both as a barrier and a softener.
If you’re someone who can use any lip balm, that’s great, but I do put my own money to luxury balms (and obviously, I am sent a lot of balms so I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t really see a difference) because I feel the long term benefits are far more than surface moisture. There IS a difference, but it’s only over a period of time that you realise that your lips are in great shape pretty much all the time and for someone who’s default position is dry lips, that’s worth its weight! Anyway, this balm is up there with the best and is £33 HERE. Somewhat amazingly, it’s £2 cheaper than it was in 2012!
