Review: PIXI Shea Butter Lip Balm in Sweet Peach

The summer craze isn't finish yet and our skin still needs to be guarded with proper care. Whatever protection we give to our skin should also be the same with our lips. How do you protect and moisturize your lips when under the sun? My secret: I use PIXI Shea Butter Lip Balm.

Aside from the summery color of this product, it smells so fresh like vanilla. What I have here is the variant Sweet Peach. Even the shade sounds very summer-y. 

The packaging is simple but sophisticated. The letters on the packaging delivers a very posh approach to the item. The packaging color is a perfect match and is really good in the eyes. Just like other lip balms, this one is a twist-type too.

This is also one of the products inside the curated Glamourbox Perfectly Pixi I purchased before. If sold individually, it is priced at P420. Quite pricey I must say.

Most balms I owned aren't tinted but this one is. Upon opening, it is pinkish red in color. When applied, there's no color-transfer even if it was tinted.It works out just like other lip balms.

For me, there's really not much of a difference here. I owned several lip balms in the past until now and this works just like the other types I have. Though I must say that I like the packaging because of the sophisticated yet simple look plus the color combo. The product was also moisturizing so it is great for summer days like now, even rainy days too!

Without the balm 

With the balm

As you can see, that's my most chillin' look without makeup. Quite haggard because I'm off running errands the whole day and too stress the past few days that I look too tired here. I just did some groceries that time and took a pic before and after applying. The balm doesn't transfer much color but if you can notice, there's a slight tint and it shines like a gloss compare to the no balm look. 

Yay for me! (◕‿  
  • I noticed most of my balms tends to melt in summer. This one doesn't which I think is good. It's hassle to clean up after the mess of melted balms.
  • Smells great!
  • The color of the package makes everything soft-looking and soothing in the eyes.
  •  Deeply moisturizing.

Recently, my problem with products upon opening is that the content would suddenly melts when opened for use. That's even after making sure that they are hidden away from direct sunlight upon storing them. I think it was just too hot nowadays. However, it shouldn't be like that though. Good thing this Pixi balm is all set. Totally perfect for summer!

What balms are you using this summer and what are your choices for the rainy days? Care to share?
