Korres Lip Butter Review

Korres Lip Butter – Guava

As you all may know, I am on a never-ending quest for the perfect lip balm. Living in Canada the dry, cold winter air takes a TOLL and I mean TOLL on my lips! I never realized just how bad chapped lips could get until moving to Calgary and experiencing the driest and coldest air of my life! A normal winter day around here is -20 degrees Celsius so I need something intense and incredibly hydrating!

Here I have the Korres Lip Butter in Guava I have actually had a few of these lip butters for quite a while. The first ones I purchased were in Pomegranate and Quince (but I seem to have lost the Quince one, hopefully I’ll find it in a purse somewhere haha!) but I didn’t use them as often because they are both pigmented and hard to apply without a mirror. Although from the applications I did do, I could tell they were extremely hydrating and soothing.
With that, I was determined to get a clear version of this lip balm, which are surprisingly hard to find I might add! I went to Sephora and had to get the sales lady to dig around in the drawers and the back room to find me one! What can I say? I was determined! Luckily, she did find me one and I snatched it up! Since then I have been slathering this on 100 times a day and loving every second of it!
I also like that it is a natural product. Although there are still quite a few ingredients on the list that I cannot pronounce nor have any idea what they are, it does include some great natural ingredients to moisturize and soothe. Heres what the website says about this lip butter:

A buttery lip balm that melts on the lips and offers a shiny, tinted finish. The combination of Shea butter and Rice wax offers deep hydration and softness. Ideal for chapped lips.”

It really does “melt” into lips and provides really intensive hydration.  I can honestly say this (in combination with my Lush Lip Scrub) is the only thing that has helped my lips! I can’t get enough of this stuff, its been permanently on my lips since I bought it and I swear I’ve gone through half a pot of it already! This keeps my lips so soft even when I don’t have it on. That may sound like a weird comment but when you live in -20 degree weather, your lips have to be covered with something at ALL TIMES!

Pros:

– Hydrating
– Deeply Moisturizing
– Repairing
– Prevents chapping
– Taste/Smell – Amazing!
– Texture – not thick or sticky at all!
– 7 Great Colours Available!

Cons:

– Not as “natural” as I would like – too many ingredients that I don’t understand!
– The lids tend to break, they are a little flimsy

Overall, EVERYONE needs one (or 7) of these! I am going to buy 3 more for every purse/school bag/car/room in my house seriously! I am not going to be able to live without these from now on! This is it guys, my holy grail of lip balms! I never thought I would find it but my lips are so extremely happy that I did! I’ve never tried such an effective, yummy and versatile lip balm!
