Luxurious Lip Care: Dior Crème de Rose Lip Balm

Since the weather has been incredibly cold for the past few days, I thought I would share with you my thoughts on my all-time favorite lip balm: Dior’s Crème de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm. I discovered it over the summer after burning my lips pretty badly. None of my other lip balms could help ease the discomfort of severely cracked and peeling lips and I was starting to think I might need to see a doctor as they were not getting better.

After finding a small sample of the Crème de Rose balm in a Dior palette, I decided to give the full size a try even though the 29$ price tag did put me off.  However not only did it moisturize and plumped my lips (the smoothing Shea butter covers the lines on your lips making them look fuller), it actually healed them (I attribute that to the vitamin A and E it contains). I am currently on my third one and I do not think I could ever go without it.

Its light rose scent is very pleasant and it gives a very sheer pink tint to the lips that really enhances them. It has SPF 10 which is a good thing considering most of us forget to protect the delicate skin of our lips from the sun. It is very creamy and feels luxurious on the lips, not greasy and it has great staying power (great if you wear it on its own).
I cannot recommend this lip balm more, it is simply incredible.

You can find it the Dior Crème de Rose balm at Dior counters and Sephora for 29$.
