Forest Essentials Kokum Butter and Honey Lip Balm
Last year I purchased Saundarya Ubtan, Brahmi Hair oil and Pure rose water from Forest Essentials outlet. When the lady at the counter was wrapping the stuff and finalizing my bill I asked her if I can get some sample product as an incentive of this shopping she smiled and put a tiny miny jar of Forest Essential Luscious Lip Balm Kokum and Honey about which I am writing here today. Since winter is already here in the town I guess this is just the correct time to review this product.

Quantity and Price:
Since this is a sample jar and the jar is too small to contain any details or stickers, neither quantity nor price has been mentioned in the jar. However I have browsed Forest Essentials website and find that they are retailing 5 gms of this product at Rs.495/- that means 1 gm of product for Rs.100/-(oouchh)..You can buy it online.
I got this product in a transparent glass jar with silver screw cap. Actual packaging is that of plastic tub, than a extra lid and a golden screw cap. Packaging is classy and travel friendly.
My experience with Forest Essentials Kokum Butter and Honey Lip Balm:
I am a hoardrer of lip balms, but I have never laid my hands upon Forest Essentials Lip Balm due to the inflated price tags so I was more than happy when I got this lip balm as sample. But first I decided to finish My TBS Vanilla lip balm than to try it. So since last 15 days I am trying it at bed time to heal my chapped lips and to protect them from these cold waves. This lip balm is very light weight and does not give any sticky feeling on the lips. I apply it daily at night and in mornings I find my lips soft and supple.
However there are some cons of this product too…first of all it smells something like coconut candy and taste is really weird which is a turn off for me. Another thing is that it does’nt get absorbed easily and stings lip a bit for say 2-3 minutes post application. It also leaves an oily sheen on the lips so it cant be used under lipsticks too, because that will reduce the stay time of that product. Although it protects lip from chapping but it has done absolutely nothing for my pigmented areas around corner of the lips.
What I like about Forest Essentials Kokum Butter and Honey Lip Balm:
- Feels light on the lips.
- Not tested on animals.
- Keeps lips soft and supple, well moisturized.
- All natural ingredients.
What I don’t like about Forest Essentials Kokum Butter and Honey Lip Balm:
- Doesn’t stay for long.
- Sting for some times.
- Leaves an oily sheen behind.
Shall I repurchase it? At this price tag…NO.
There are cheaper and better options available in the market. Have you tried Forest Essentials Kokum Butter and Honey Lip Balm?
