PosieBalm, I was initially underwhelmed by Benefit's tinted lip balms, but I've had a complete change of heart! This lip balm formula contains several beneficial, hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, mango butter, and vitamin E, and more. BeneBalm's formula is so silky, it melts on to the lips, providing long lasting moisture. I reapply BeneBalm every 5-6 hours. These lip balms lock in moisture, sooth and heal chapped lips, all while adding a glossy hint of color. As much as I like BeneBalm, I have two complaints about the formula. I really wish Benefit would've included SPF in their lip balm formula. Also, this line of lip balms has a strong, artificial rose scent and flavor that I find unpleasant. It reminds me of the play lipsticks I had as a kid.
The Body Shops' Strawberry Born Lippy Balm or a very sheer application of Revlon's Candy Apple Lip Butter.
I really like Benefit's BeneBalm. Packaging is too cute, and the formula is excellent. Hydrating and long lasting, BeneBalm provides a lovely rose tint to the lips. As much as I like BeneBalm, I don't think Benefit's Hydrating Tinted Lip Balms are a necessity. Really, they're like a more posh version of Maybelline's Baby Lips, which I do love. I think I'll end up splurging on ChaChaBalm and LolliBalm, just because I adore the line. If you want a cute, good quality tinted lip balm, or are shy about red lips but love the look, do try BeneBalm.
