Rain Gods have shown mercy upon chennaities at last. Beautiful breeze mingled with soft showers without the jarring thunders. Ha.! I just love the summer spells. So, in my happy mood, I place before you all the review of a lip balm which I got recently.
I have pigmented lips and I am fair skinned. My lips, in spite of being pigmented tend to dry quickly and get chapped. Hence I am always on the look out for a decent lip balm that does the job without burning a hole in my pocket. On the other day when I was shopping some cosmetics at health and Glow, I found this little guy hung across the counter. It looked so cute and small that I ended up buying it. (Yes. I have a thing for small and cute stuffs) To see if I regretted buying it or not read on. J
About the brand: I have never heard of this brand. In order to get some gyaan about this, I turned to my best friend who knows about everything – Googleji. J

This product comes in a cute little green metal case that has a slider lid. The middle portion of the lid is intentionally left transparent. I am in love with this case. This case is the first factor that made me try out this product.
My Experience with RevAyur Tinted Lip balm in cherry:
This little guy has a beautiful fruity fragrance like that of kissan fruit jam. :D It has a smooth texture and when applied looks pretty on my pigmented lips. I prefer to apply this at day time and the Himalaya one at night. These two has helped me immensely with my chapped lips problem and now my lips feel so soft and smooth. I read in the carton of this lipbalm that it does not contain parabens which I feel is an added advantage.
What I love about RevAyur Tinted Lip Balm in Cherry:
- Recyclable Cute little green box with sliding lid.
- Pretty color.
- Does the job of moisturizing the lips well.
- Nice fragrance.
- Does not contain parabens.
- Very cheap. Just Rs. 80/- good for college goers.
- Good pigmentation for a lipbalm.
What I hate about RevAyur Tinted Lip Balm in Cherry:
I find digging out the lip balm difficult in case you have long nails. Its annoying when it gets struck under your nails. (Arrr…)

This product is a definite hit for me. Its cheap, good and cute. What else can we ask for?
I also think that It’s perfect for young girls who want to try out lipsticks but are skeptical for doing so. This gives the right amount of sheen for lip makeup starters.
See you all in another post till then enjoy the summer spells.
