The Perfect Lip Balm? Korres Quince Lip Butter Review

Normally, i am not one to do reviews on lip balms, because lip balms are lip balms right? Well, lets just say the Korres one isn't a typical lip balm.

I have been using this for several months now and wanted to share my thoughts with you guys. The Korres Lip Butter has to be one of the most moisturising balms i have ever used and trust me i have used a lot!

I use this day and night, and carry this everywhere with me. I do admit, the pot isn't the most convenient, but it's so small and handy, that it is good for keeping in your handbag.

The texture is a very thick and buttery ........kinda like the name! Even though it is thick, it applies onto the lips very smoothly and almost has a nice silky feeling to it. This lip butter does keep your lips moisturised for a good few hours before you have to reapply, however if you have really dry and flaky lips, then the tint may emphasise the dryness.

The Korres Lip Butters come in a variety of shades and i did pick up a few more, but Quince has to be the one I'm using the most. Quince is a sheer rose shade with a hint of a rosy scent, and it's not a strong scent either but very subtle.

I like how these lip butters have a tint, because they are quite noticeable on the lips, so it's great for people who don't wear a lot of lip makeup but want something on their lips that is hydrating too. I love layering these lip butters over lipsticks or lip tints.

I managed to pick these up for about £4 a couple of months back and can see some websites retailing it for £8 now. At the time of purchase, i think these were purse friendly, however i am really not sure why there has been such a hike in the price!
