VLCC Lip Shield (Strawberry) ~ Review & Swatch

VOV GiveAway Entry  Post – XII

By Meghana Rajesh

Hello Everyone!!!

My lips remain dry and chapped throughout the year. Monsoon, Summer or Winter makes no difference to my lips. Always and always dry they are. So there is no chance of me being without a lip balm. From past 3 years I have been using Lotus lip balm regularly. I never thought about changing the balm, until I came across VLCC Lip Shield. My sister gifted this Lip Shield to me. Looking at this gifted product, I was eager to open and use it, like how a small child feels about a new toy. Very soon, I started using it on my lips.

What VLCC LIP SHIELD says about it? :

This unique Lip Shield enriched with Strawberry, Vitamin E and Shea Butter, helps heal chapped lips, conditions and keeps them smooth, while protecting them from harmful effects of the sun (SPF-10).

Ingredients:
Ricinus Communis Oil, Octyl Methoxy Cinnamate, Shea Butter, Di-Methicon, Vitamin E.

Shelf life : 4 years

Price and Volume: 80 INR for 10ml.

My Experience

I started using it very recently, just a month ago. It looks cute and pinkish in color in the tub. But how sad, it does not give any color to lips. It has a non sticky texture and is watery. It is very light, does not give heavy waxy feeling to lips. It moisturizes lips very well making it baby soft and gives a cool feeling once applied. But, it evaporates soon leaving the lips to dry gradually. It needs to be applied every 2 hours which is quite irritating to me. It also has SPF 10 for sun protection. It smells very pleasant. I found nothing much special in this lip balm and also it’s not much effective for dry lips. Once I empty this product, I will switch back to my Lotus lip balm.

Pros of VLCC LIP SHIELD :

  • Moisturizes lips and its watery nature does not give any heavy feeling to lips. Feels like you have not applied anything to lips.
  • Sweet smelling lip balm.
  • Gives a light shiny tinge to lips for awhile and makes them look attractive.
  • Has SPF 10 for protection from sun rays.
  • Very easy to carry while travelling.

Cons of VLCC LIP SHIELD :

  • Needs to be applied every now and then.
  • Dries off soon leaving lips to its normal state.
  • It comes in a tub. Very unhygienic  and the product enters my nails when I dip my fingers Sad

Rating: 3/5.

Will I buy it again? : Thumbs DownNope. I will not buy this product. Lotus Lip balm is the best lip balm that suits my lips.
