Hi my Readers 🙂
I don’t know how is the weather around you but where I am, it was suposed to be spring and maybe even summer-ish temperatures for a while now. The winter is taking it’s time but the preparations for the summer have already started. That is not visible by my clothing but definitely in my mind 😀
Few years go, dm dregerie markt have released their lip balms with SPF. I don’t know if that is entirely true or some marketing trick to get us to buy more stuff but I still got it because I lost the one with 20 SFP that I had. To my surprise it smelled like coconut as claimed but also tasted sweat. At the time I worked at a place where people didn’t bother to ask if in the things left behind in the women’s powder room belonged to someone so they threw it away. It may have been my fault but still, didn’t hurt to ask or leave it for people to find it. I guess SPF doesn’t like me that much 😀
Anyways… because it was limited edition, I couldn’t buy it again so I forgot about it, up until few days ago when I saw that dm’s brand SUN Dance have released something suspiciously similar. I like coconut and of course I bought it so here is my opinion on it:
I may not be the same but it sure reminds me a lot of it so I’d say – suspiciously similar.
Previous one: had thicker consistency. Smelled sweet – vanilla and little bit like coconut. Tasted slightly sweet (not at the point where you would like to eat it, but just comfortable not to taste like oil).
New one: thinner consistency, other than that everything is the same.
Also, the packaging is different. It was yellow, now is cute light blue with coconut and some summer themes on it.
I don’t know if the inflation is hitting them too and that’s why they made it thinner this time 😀
It doesn’t say it is limited edition but just like the previous one I assume it will go away once the summer is gone and once they get rid of the stocks.
How it feels: other than the cute packaging and everything about the smell and taste, I don’t see much of a difference. The previous one used to leave a white film on the lips which actually looked nice. I don’t need much help for the lips but I have noticed that whenever I am wearing it, I tend to constantly smush my lips together. I don’t know why is that but has happened few times before too, with other lip balms.
Does it protect the lips from the sun? I don’t know, yet, since there is not much sun and I only got it 2 weeks ago, although it claims to protect against the UVA and UVB rays so hopefully it will.
It is fair amount (10ml) so I would assume it will last quite a bit. The ingredients are not that special.
As I am sitting and writing this, I can feel that the lip balm is disappearing and that’s little bit too fast for me. If I lose this one, I don’t know if I would buy it again or just finally try the coconut one from Ziaja 😀 https://positivityandbeauty.wordpress.com/2019/03/22/my-used-to-be-favorite-lip-balm/
And another review from Balea and their lip balms (which is practically the same or very similar)
Any thoughts on this one?
Wishing you a good start of the week.
Remember to do something good today, even it is something insignificant to you 🙂
