Simply Her (Singapore) - - Beauty Road Test -

US­ING IT: The balm spread eas­ily, melt­ing in­stantly into my lips, and I found its fra­grance light and classy. THE EF­FECT: I liked that it left my lips glossy and soft yet not sticky. Signs of dry­ness dis­ap­peared – my lips were well mois­turised and sup­ple for more than half a day. When I used it overnight, my lips felt fairly mois­turised, and didn’t peel.

US­ING IT: Love its has­sle-free pack­ag­ing – it’s the only one in a tube. The light­weight tex­ture didn’t leave my lips oily, sticky or heavy – per­fect un­der lip­stick. THE EF­FECT: My lips felt soft and com­fort­able but not su­perbly mois­turised. They tend to peel when I sleep in an air-con­di­tioned room, but they felt softer and peeled less when I used this.

US­ING IT: Comes with a spat­ula to keep it clean. The thick tex­ture of the scent­less, plant­based balm felt sticky as I ap­plied it but left a smooth fin­ish. THE EF­FECT: The most mois­tur­is­ing of the lot. My nor­mally dry, peel­ing lips were soft, smooth and com­forted through­out the day – even af­ter eat­ing and drink­ing. And I woke up to soft, sup­ple lips af­ter us­ing it at night.

US­ING IT: The creamy tex­ture melted right into my skin and the del­i­cate rose scent made us­ing it a plea­sure. I loved how luxe the frosted pot looked and felt. THE EF­FECT: It left a slightly pink sheen on my lips – I looked like I was wear­ing lip gloss. My puck­ers felt very mois­turised and pam­pered.

US­ING IT: It has a smooth tex­ture, and didn’t leave my lips look­ing su­per shiny. THE EF­FECT: The men­thol in it gave a fresh, cool­ing sen­sa­tion, and the sweet mint flavour stayed on my lips for hours. The eu­ca­lyp­tus ex­tract had the added ben­e­fit of im­prov­ing my si­nus con­di­tion, too. While it left my lips mois­turised, it wasn’t as hy­drat­ing as the oth­ers.
