Dior Creme de Rose Lip Balm

I am a lip balm junkie. I always have to have a lip balm in my purse and a few to rotate at my vanity. I just can't stand chapped or dry lips. 

I am in Toronto visiting family for the holidays and also for my birthday. So I decided to pick up a few beauty items that I would not usually splurge on. But it is my birthday, so I gave myself every excuse to do so :)



It probably is the most expensive lip balm I have purchased. At CAD $29 a piece, it'd better be good.


It comes in a simple white plastic container with 0.25 oz of product. When I swatched at the store, it just feel like butter. It is so smooth and creamy. It claims to be a plumping lip balm but I don't see any plumping effect on my lips.

If you are a big fan of rose scent, you are going to LOVE this. I have tried this for the past 3 days and I am totally hooked. It has a slight hint of pink color and when I don't feel like putting on a lot of makeup that day, I just apply a little bit of this to give my lips a hint of color. It really does moisturize your lips and seem to last quite a bit on my lips, even with constant drinking. 

The other drug store lip balm I can think of which is comparable to this is the Nivea Lip Butter. It is a bit thicker in consistency so may not be the easiest to get absorbed. With the Nivea, I always have to make sure I run through my lips with my fingers a few times to help my lips absorb faster. Otherwise, would find my lips with a thick white "balmy" film on it. With the Dior one, it melt into your lips much faster and stay on much longer. So even though it is pricey, you only need to apply a tiny bit and don't have to keep re-applying it all day long.

Final verdict: Is Dior Creme de rose lip balm worth the hype? Yes, it is. I know, it is a bit pricey for a lip balm. But for those of us who have dry chapped lips in the harsh Canadian winters, it is such a luxury item but it is worth it. Would I re-purchase it? I am not sure yet. I would have to see how long this last me and decide.

    1. I, too, have so many lip balms and I have a bad habit of trying out a whole bunch of new ones before finishing any of my old ones. This is such a creamy and rich texture and I know I will finish this(also with its price tag, I'd better be :).
