To me, tinted lip balms are great alternatives for lip glosses. We really need them in our lives to fight the dryness off and give our lips that naturally gorgeous looks. But, when we are planning to put on a favorite matte lip color or we want to heal our seriously chapped lips tint free lip balms are our best options. These lip balms are transparent so they do not settle into the chapped creases of our lips to give that tacky look. Plus, our lips get healed overnight! Today I am sharing my experience with Himalaya Herbals Litchi Shine Lip Care. This is the newest inclusion in my lip balm collection! Here are my thoughts about this lip balm.

My Experience with Himalaya Herbals Litchi Shine Lip Care
Packaging- This lip balm comes in a lipstick-like twist-up bullet packaging. The bullet is made up of see-through plastic. But, the cap has been covered with colorful plastic wrapping. The bullet is packed in a standard cardboard outer pack. This outer pack has all the written details mentioned. The packaging is satisfactory but not very much sturdy. The plastic bullet might get some cracks here and there if it is under pressure.
Colour, Texture & Staying Power- This is a tint-free lip balm. So, it gives a shiny transparent finish to the lips. Its texture is medium and non-greasy. It does not give a sticky annoying feel to the skin yet it moisturizes pretty well. It lasts for up to 4 hours on my lips in this dry and cold weather if I am not eating or drinking anything. In summer it will last longer than that.
Fragrance- This lipstick has amazing litchi fragrance to it. This kind of scent is often found in litchi candies. The rich fragrance of litchi is something I crave for so I am really liking this lip balm! However, the fragrance might feel heavy on someone who does not like litchi smell. The scent stays for about 20 minutes and then starts to fade.
Experience- I have had good results with Himalaya’s bullet form lip balms before though this one is my first fruit enriched chap-stick from them. This one is a standard non-tinted version of non-sticky lip balm. It has a rich formula that actually works on my dry lips. I use it as my at-home lip care and overnight lip therapy. In both the cases, I have been able to get suppled up lips. It does not have SPF in it, so it is not a good option if you are going out in the sun. It, on the other hand, can be used under drying matte liquid lipsticks for a comfortable finish. This lip balm is free of mineral oils, silicones, artificial colorants and harmful preservatives. So, it is a comparatively safe product for the lips. This lip balm is something I can look forward to in any season.
