I picked up 2 pieces of Jewellery from LIMEROAD, a necklace & a pair of earrings. I liked how firmly everything was packed to avoid any damage in transit. The necklace & the earrings were separately packed in a plastic box in bubble wrap.

Vaseline Lip Therapy Review

Chapped lips are a sign of winter. You bundle up in extra layers during the winter months, but your lips are still exposed to the sun, wind, cold, and dry air. With its excellence in skin care, what better than Vaseline lip therapy to nourish your chapped lips. Let your lips speak louder than your words with Vaseline Lip Therapy

_MG_0814

Our lips have an amazing ability to experience heightened sensations, allowing us to feel the slightest of touch and sense the environment around us. However, unlike body skin, the skin on our lips does not naturally create its own moisture layer, leaving it susceptible to dryness and chapping. Vaseline Lip Therapy helps to keep lips healthy and protected. The lip therapy range comes with goodness of Vitamin E known for its antioxidant properties and Petroleum jelly that keeps moisture locked in. Vaseline lip therapy SPF15 not only moisturises and soothes lips but also provides effective protection from the harsh effects of the sun.

_MG_0822

Price : Rs. 150 for 4gms.

Vaseline Lip Therapy is available in 4 variants:

  • Vaseline Lip Therapy Original
  • Vaseline Lip Therapy Aloe Vera 
  • Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy
  • Vaseline Lip Therapy Cocoa Butter

_MG_0821

Recommendation : I am simply in love with the Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy. It has no as such a fragrance and keeps the lips moisturised and safe from the sun. It contains Almond and rose oil to keep lips soft and smooth. Vitamin E for its antioxidant properties and Petroleum Jelly that keeps moisture locked in. SPF 15 to protect your lips against harmful UVA & UVB rays. The packaging is sturdy & compact.

I would recommend Vaseline Lip Therapy to everyone.

Rating : 5/5

MY VIEWS:  L’oreal nutri shine range lipsticks provide sheer coverage but they are very moisturizing and hydrating.However,this is the most pigmented shade from the range along with Vivid Rose. The finish is glossy and gives wet look to lips.The texture is amazingly soft and the lip color glides on easily. It feels luxurious on lips.The staying power is around 4 hours for this shade.However,it is prone to melting and over application can lead to lipstick bleeding!!

I find this formula great for those having dry lips. It certainly is Juicy!!!!

RATING: 3.5/5

RECOMMENDATION: I have 6 shades from this range and love them all as it like hydrating lipsticks.The formula is creamy and shades are great.I t could be the best if staying power would have been a bit more.
