SoTrue Lavender Skin Repair Balm: Review

Summer is almost over here but I can still feel the heat linger on. You would, too, if you're living in the Philippines. It's been months since the summer season has taken its toll on us but the heat is still all too overwhelming for me. I feel like I survived numerous near-heat stroke moments for the past two months. Aside from that, I've also been experiencing dry lips caused by who-knows-what. It's a good thing, however, that I got this Skin Repair Balm as a part of my second haul from the Sample Room.

I thought long and hard before deciding on how I'm going to use the product. Judging from the description I've read off of Sample Room, this particular product has many uses to choose from and I decided to use it as a lip moisturizer/lip balm. The sample packaging helped me decide as it already looked like a regular lip balm.

Sample room says, "Use it on your lips, your elbows, knees, heels—just about anywhere your body needs some moisturizing TLC! SoTrue Skin Repair Balm packs a moisturizing punch with olive oil and pure beeswax to knock out dry skin. Leaves skin feeling soft and smooth unlike any other lotion you’ve tried."

The sample product is a regular cream colored stick. The smell doesn't bother me although I sense a mixture of mint and herbal scent. It's really creamy, spreads easily and moisturizes really well. This could be the best lip balm out there (at least for me).

I love using this product after I apply my everyday lipstick (EB Matte Lipstick in Viva). Matte lipsticks tend to dry my lips but whenever I top it off with this product, my lips get its moisture back with no difficulty. The only problem is that I have to reapply it after 2-3 hours.

Now would I recommend this product? Yes, I would! This is very moisturizing and does everything a lip balm should.
