Jovees Lip Balm-Strawberry Flavour

I have been using the Jovees Lip Balm in Strawberry flavour for a long time now, so decided to write a post on it. Before using this I tried lip balms from Nivea & also Avon Lip balms in Strawberry,Cherry & Aloe.Here is my post on the Avon Lipbalms on IMBB
I had also used Lypsyl Lip balm that a friend of mine gifted. Lypsyl  is a brand of moisturizing lip balm manufactured by Novartis Consumer Health, a Switzerland-based pharmaceutical company. Though it was moisturizing the Lipbalm used lo leave a white cast every time.
I have also used Shahnaz Hussain Lip Balm & Revlon Lipbalm few years back. So I have this desire to try so many lipbalms. The latest one I'm eying is the Eva Lip Balm. Now coming to the Jovees Lip balm here's my take on that.



What does the company claim about the Lip Balm: It contains pure almond and olive extracts along with natural Vitamin A , B , C and E. It soothes and conditions delicate lip area, restores moisture.


Flavours Available: Strawberry, Lavender,Lemon


Available at: Any Indian Cosmetic stores or Super Markets.


Price: I guess I got it for either Rs 69 or RS 79 INR, I don't remember the actual price because it's not written on the tub & I threw away the actual box pack.


Reasons why I adore this Lip balm:
1. Its moisturizes & takes care of my chapped lips.
2. Gives a sheer glossy pink color to the lips.
3. No bitter taste or unpleasant fragrance.
4. Reasonably priced
5. Has a nice strawberry fragrance.


Reasons why I abhor this Lip balm:
1. No SPF
2. Doesn't leave any tint. In the beginning it appears sheer glossy pink & after sometime it just disappears.
3. There is no information about the expiry or manufactured date on the tub, so one has to keep the outer packaging to have the details.
4. In Summers, it kinda melts in the tub, if you know what I mean.
5. Comes in a tub, so every time you try to use the lip balm , it gets underneath the nails.


Will I repurchase ? No, I think I'll try other Lip Balms in the market.
