The Lip Balm Trials : Rodin olio lusso Lip Balm

Hearing nothing but great reviews on the brand Rodin, I picked two items from the line; the lip balm and hair oil. It's not like I need any more lip balms. I could not believe it when I looked at my vanity table and I had a jar full of lip balms that I probably would never entirely use up. I would most likely lose them one by one, and sadly I've already lost one of my Maybelline Baby Lips and Sugar lip balms. So I thought to myself, why not add one more to the pile?

The all-natural lip balm's effect to ones lips is to smooth and soften, just as their face oil to ones complexion(which I would love to try if it wasn't for my fear wreaking havoc of my ultra sensitive skin). The ingredients include jasmine, orange flower oil, shea butter, beeswax, and castor seed oil. You can smell a faint hint of jasmine when applying to your lips. I think it's great that it is not overwhelmingly fragrant as some balms/lipsticks can be.

Encased in a high quality plastic compact, I love the understated simplicity of the packaging. You can definitely differentiate that this is not your average joe Chapstick. It is wonderfully lux.

I was surprised at how hard the formulation is. The balm is not soft as say Rosebud Salve but more so the texture of Baby Lips. Let's just say it took being in 100 degree weather for the balm to become malleable. Once on the lips the texture is just as described smooth and soft, and hydrating. I have been using this for the past month in my morning lip routine and it is working great.

Overall a welcomed addition to my collection of lip balms. I am still looking for the HG of lip balms but this comes very close.

This retails for $30 and can be purchased on the Rodin olio lusso website.

Can a girl really have too many?...

    2. I love the way that the Olio Lusso face oil smells and have tried a sample. I'm pretty tempted to buy it! Plus I really like Linda Rodin and her take on the whole thing.

  2. You are so right, a girl can never have too many lip balms. My collection is also piling up. But the main reason for me to have so many different lip balms at once, sometimes one stops working and I move to the other one, and then when one stops working I go back to the original one again, weird. and I am so keen to try the Rodin one out too. Does it have shimmers or a tint in it?

    1. hi asti! lip balms are definitely just constantly rotated in my house. the rodin does not have any shimmer or tint. it is definitely one of my favorite balms to date. very moisturizing and i just love the consistency. i'm actually almost out so i'm real sad about it.
