I Tried A Lip Balm Freshened With Tea Leaves

I have always believed that ‘every small thing counts towards perfection’. Although this statement is more of a sentimental thought which most of us would agree to. It is not easy to decide how honest you must be when you are reviewing a product.

You take on the role of an expert and it requires you to be impeccable in your word while making sure that the product you recommend or criticize is worth all the appreciation it gets.

I love trying new products, especially indie brands, particularly when they are natural. Recently, I am often buying and tried various lip balms to see how they measure up against one another. Well, I can’t live without a good lip balm. It’s the first thing I put on in the morning and the last thing I put on before bed. Today, I’d like to share with you a really great natural product that’s designed specifically for those of us who have sensitive lips — Vase Creation Lip Tea-raphy.

As with most of their products, this tea collection lip balm is infused with tea leaves extract to enhance its benefits. They also say that it has a lovely tea scent, which pairs well with the tea personality.

When I saw this product, I thought it would be perfect for me, so I bought 3 of their Lip Tea-raphy lip balm collection, including Earl Grey, Matcha, and Oolong! From western to eastern. I’ve been using this product for a few months now, and I can say without hyperbole that it’s the best lip balm I’ve ever used.

The first thing I noticed when applying it was how smooth and creamy it felt on my lips. The product is not greasy or thick like some other lip balms can be, which made it very comfortable to wear. It does have a strong fresh tea scent (which some people may not like), but personally, I enjoyed the smell and found that it was not overpowering at all once applied to my lips. It has helped to keep my dry chapped lips soft and supple, especially if applied before bedtime.

I also find that the balm lasts for ages as you don’t need to use much at all at a time with their innovative packaging, click and glide concept. The price is reasonable (RM 19.90 each) and it lasts a long time — I still have my first tube and I use it every day since August 2021! Plus, there’s no petroleum — just lots of good stuff like beeswax, vitamin E, jojoba oil, and castor oil (the list goes on).

This tea lip balm fits perfectly into your lifestyle as an additive healthy part of your self-care routine that you also enjoy, naturally improves your mood, and works all day long. It’s definitely worth a try if you’re looking to change things up from your normal lip care routine. Grab yours here.
