Hello ladies, I hope everyone is having a great day.
Today let us talk about another product from the Himalaya Herbals range. It is their cocoa butter lip balm. They do have a lip butter which comes in a tiny tub packaging but because I am more comfortable with this lipstick like packaging, I got this one.

In Detail Himalaya Herbals Intensive Moisturizing Cocoa Butter Lip Balm Review and My Experience
This lip balm comes in a lovely lipstick like packaging with a twist up mechanism. The outer cover is transparent on the top so that one can look inside the bullet of the lippie. Very nice packaging overall with a smooth Himalaya Herbals theme.
When we look at the balm, it is almost opaque. Upon application it is transparent. The balm smells like cocoa butter and vanilla which I totally love. Although they haven’t mentioned the complete list of ingredients, I am trusting them to have put in at least some natural ingredients. The texture of the lip balm is smooth, not overly waxy which is a huge plus point. This is the reason why I really like applying this underneath my lipsticks.
How I Use it
1. Daily morning and evening after washing my face.
2. Underneath a lipstick.
3. Before going to bed.
4. Anytime I feel my lips feel dry.
This lip balm does the job of providing soft supple lips and keeps the lips hydrated for 4-5 hours. After that we do need reapplication. It is transparent, does not give any colour/tint on the lips which is okay I think since it is meant to be a natural product. Upon liberal application overnight this shows a significant improvement in cases of chapped lips. For completely healing chapped lips, you would need to use this for 2-3 days.
I am quite satisfied with this lip balm. Although I do feel that the price is a bit on the higher side if we compare the other options available to us in the market. However overall it is a decent product. Does the job of a nice lip balm.

CONs of Himalaya Herbals Intensive Moisturizing Cocoa Butter Lip Balm
1. Complete ingredient list is missing.
2. Only one variety available.
As the season is changing, lips tend to get dry. Please keep the lips hydrated at all times and let us make it a habit to carry one lip balm in the handbag wherever we go. Dry and chapped lips never make a good impression. Lips are anatomically a mucocutaneous junction, and naturally tend to dry up more. So let us keep our lips hydrated at all times. Also, never forget to use a lip balm at night before going to sleep.
Will I Repurchase this?
I am quite satisfied by how it performed. Repurchase, well may be. I would have loved to try if they had more variants.
