Hello everyone! Lip balms a necessity during the winter months, even though I need them throughout the year. I recently came across these Fuschia lip balms that are available in a number of variants – choco, caramel and fruity ones. The ones I picked up are Tropical Alphonso and Black Currant, both being my favorite ice-cream faves. 🙂

My Overview of the Products :
These lip balms came packaged beautifully in a pink net potli with golden floral motifs. The lip balms are cute little jars with distinct colors denoting the variants. Tropical Alphonso is a bright yellow while Black Currant is dark violet. Texture wise, the lip balms are solidified inside the jar but comes up as a thin layer of balmy consistency on the fingers. Both fragrances are quite on the stronger side and hit the nose as soon as the jars are opened. However the Black Currant variant smells a little rubbery and artificial to me in the jar, and reminds me of chewing gums. Tropical Alphonso is a very sweet mango fragrance, almost like a candy, which I quite like.
On the lips, both the Fuschia lip balms feel quite similar. The fragrance lingers on for some time after which it disappears. What I misunderstood was that the different variants came enriched with their respective goodness. Like Tropical Alphonso came with the moisturising goodness of mangoes. But no, that’s not the case. The ingredients of these lip balms are same apart from the additional color and flavor infused to make these different from one another. The staying power is decent and not so great. Both of these last for around 4-5 hours on one application. But with meals in between, they may last even lesser.
The best thing about these Fuschia lip balms is that they are purely handmade from natural ingredients. These also have Vitamin E, which is known to work amazingly for dry, chapped lips. Also they are free from parabens, so that’s a big plus for me. 🙂 These lip balms do not impart any color to the lips but moisturize them quite nicely. Both lip balms have a shelf life of 24 months.
The Final Verdict :
The Fuschia lip balms can be given a try if you are looking for natural lip moisturizers without chemical additives. Packaging is pretty on a first look, but I don’t always find it very hygienic to be dipping my fingers in the jar for every application. Fragrance wise, these may be pleasing to some, while may turn down some sensitive noses as well. These lip balms are pretty travel friendly being small yet not delicate. If you’re getting these on a good discount, you can always pick one up for yourself! 🙂
