So the hype surrounding this lip balm has been epic! Ever since I started reading blogs this seems to have come up time and time again.
Now I never got sucked into purchasing this and I actually got my hands on it in the last Space NK 'Gift with Purchase'.
It's a really cute little pot and I was so excited to try it, it was the first thing I opened and used!
It feels really good on the lips and glides on beautifully and smells, as you would expect, of roses. So top marks for texture and scent!
Unfortunately this didn't live up to expectations! Considering this comes with a mega price tag I was expecting miracles and so I should for £38!
It didn't do anything exceptional for my dry (and on occasions, chapped) lips and I felt the need to apply it more often as it seemed to disappear quite quickly.
In all honesty I believe £38 is ridiculous money for something that works no better than your average chemist/drugstore lip balm.
I think the Body Shop Aloe Lip Care (Balm) and Bite Beauty's Agave Lip Mask are wonderful and less than half the price! They certainly work just as well, if not better!
My advice... Don't waste your money, unless you really want to of course!
I'm not saying I would turn this away if it was a gift, but it's certainly not something I would buy myself!
You can find the Baume de Rose here for £38.00
Would you be willing to part with £38.00 for this little tub of rosy goodness?
