To this day, I have never come across a ‘dud’ Dior beauty product, surely their must be something…right? Let me tell you, if their is, this Creme De Rose lip balm definitely isn’t one of them! Recently, this has been one of my hand bag must-haves and cannot live without, especially now we are hitting the cold, winter months. The packaging, as with any Dior product, is nothing less than perfection and totally luxurious. (Again, they always get this right).
I do tend to get dry lips in the winter, and since discovering this little beauty, I have been one happy girl. It claims to be enriched with a rare Damask Rose essential oil extract, vitamins A&E and Shea Butter for a smoothing, anti-aging, moisturising and long-lasting effect. Im not sure how this magic formula works, but when I use this, my lips do seem intensely moisturised and ‘plumped’. I also just love how the lips are left with a radiant pale pinky glow, without being greasy. For a more intense fix, I like to pop a little more than usual on just before going to bed and you wake up with super soft, plump lips…what more does a girl want? The texture is quite simply dreamy; I feel like I am rubbing liquid pearls onto my lips with the creaminess. Additionally, when wearing matte lipsticks (we all know that these can be horribly drying), this is great for putting a little underneath, as it does not take the effect of the lipstick away.
Overall, the only downside to this product is the price, retailing at £20 (cheapest is £17 at escentual.com), this is one expensive lip balm. But we are talking Dior, and it is a luxury product that will last for quite a while. I have now had mine over 3 months and haven’t even used a quarter. So maybe it is ok as a sneaky treat? If you do take my advice and buy this…be warned…you will never go back!
Have you tried the Creme De Rose?
