Forest Essentials Luscious Lip Balm in Sweet Narangi Juice
Hello everyone! This is my first post on wiseshe and I am so excited and nervous! Well, today I would like to review a product which might address a very common problem that most of us lip-color addicts face – lip pigmentation. I have been eyeing this one since quite a while but owing to it’s steep price tag, I never picked it up. However when the SA took one look at my pink lips with brown borders (seriously, it’s as if someone used a marker to border them!) and suggested this one to reduce the pigmentation, I caved in and picked it. Did it work or not? Well, lets see
About the Forest Essentials Luscious Lip Balm in Sweet Narangi Juice (That’s a mouthful):
Luscious Lip Balm soaked in citric or flower juices to soften and protect your lips
Moisturising Lip Balms made with Kokum butter which contains an abundance of healing ingredients including vitamins, minerals, proteins and a unique fatty acid profile. These fatty acids are indispensable for their emollient properties. Organic Beeswax deeply nourishes and restores elasticity to the skin Almond oil from sweet almonds is the most nutritious. Narangi is natural astringent, anti-oxidant, detoxifying. These lip balms seal in moisture, soothe dry lips, and leave them soft smooth and glossy.

My experience with Forest Essentials Luscious Lip Balm in Sweet Narangi Juice:
The lip-balm is housed in a tiny little cardboard box with the ingredients list and other details on it. On opening it, we can see a small little glass jar which has this beautiful orangey-yellow lipbalm (luckily no tint, who wants yellow lips! ) it has a protective shield inside.
The lip-balm itself is colorless and very very light. It has a texture of that of oil but without any oily feeling. It has the most yummy, fresh citrusy fragrance like mousambi juice and little bit of lime and orange! I don’t know how to explain it clearly, it’s just very yummy and citrusy . On applying it, it instantly hydrates the lips and just sinks into them without sitting on the lips like a thick layer. I have very very dry lips which are prone to chapping and I was skeptical if such a light balm could help them but surprisingly it did! J it made my lips so soft and smooth and I don’t need to keep re-applying the balm over and over again.
Now coming to the main reason behind buying this, did it work on the pigmentation? Well, though the results are not drastic, I must say that it did to an extent J That dark brown line has definitely lightened a lot and I am sure that it will get better with regular and long usage! So am happy with my purchase J Now, summing up the pro’s and con’s
What I like about Forest Essentials Luscious Lip Balm in Sweet Narangi Juice:-
- Very lightweight and hydrating lipbalm
- Colorless and doesn’t sit on lips so can be used by both men and women
- Works well on chapped lips
- Keeps lips hydrated and moisturized for long
- Works on lip-pigmentation
- The ingredients list is mentioned and is all natural
- Lovely citrusy fragrance that doesn’t last long so sensitive noses wont have an issue J
- You need very little product so this will last for a while
What I don’t like about Forest Essentials Luscious Lip Balm in Sweet Narangi Juice:-
- Expensive for a lip-balm
- Natural product so will give good results only with long-term use
- Jar packaging. This is not a con with me as I psychologically feel that jar lip-balms perform better but I know many of you won’t agree with me
- No SPF (at that price, you need to have some right?)
I totally recommend this lip-balm to everyone who are suffering with pigmented and dry lips! It totally works and makes the lips really soft and smooth. I am definitely going to repurchase this one as it worked well
