Lip balm? Lip tint? Does it matter what it's called if it's good?

  • Jul 14, 2009
  • by
I hardly ever use lipstick because my lips are always dry and I am always looking for new "miracle"-balms and other solutions to soften them up.  I always get attracted to those yummy flavors like chocolate and... chocolate :), and rich-sounding names like "butter" and "cream" and end up with stuff that tastes and smells wonderful though leaves my lips either greasy or just as dry as they were before.
So no lipstick for me until I find the lip balm that is "just right", right?
Apparently I didn't get the memo that Alba Botanics created this itty-bitty, tuck-in-your-purse tinted lip balm that comes in rich yet natural shades, smells deliciously minty and makes my lips soft while adding color and SPF protection without harsh chemicals.
I am addicted.
I can't think of asking anything else of this product except for perhaps more of a color variety.
But then again, the natural shades that they are offering right now would compliment any complexion.

What did you think of this review?

This sounds like the perfect lip balm for long MN winters! Thanks for the suggestion. I've been using Burt's Bees Lip Balm in the past.

I can't wait to try this...I have been using C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Shine ($7.50) from Bath and Body Works that works wonders. The gloss makes your lips shine and it's not too gooey but, it doesn't have SPF. Thanks so much for the recommendation!

I actually tried Mentha Lip shine and loved it. The SPF factor was a deal-breaker though. But I will get a tube just because your comment reminded me how good it felt. :) Thanks!

Yeay, Yana is back! Thanks for the review, I've been using Burt's Bees Lip Balm for a while now, usually just in the winter. I have never tried Alba products but really want to get their facial moisturizer. Thanks for pointing this out!

Yay! Nice to be back! :) Thanks for such a warm welcome! Hope you will like the Terra Tints as much as I did! I have never tried their moisturizer, please don't forget to review it when you do. I'll try the Burt's Bees Lip Balm. :)
