Like all kids I have had an inclination towards lipbalms since the day I was born. The little tubs and tubes that come in vibrant colours look so enticing that I canâ€™t help but be lured by their siren call, despite their somewhat tall claims. All lipbalms are a tad gimmicky, in my humble opinion.
I am yet to come across a lipbalm that simply claims to hydrate for a short while till reapplication is required, essentially what every lipbalm actually does.

My take on Khadi Herbal Lip Balm Chocolate:
This comes in the traditional tub style packaging of lipbalms that I really truly hate. Itâ€™s unhygienic and makes application a huge mess. But nevertheless, I have taken to using this product before bed because of this factor. It also lacks SPF that is a huge requirement for a sun allergic person like me, so before bed time it is!
The packaging of the product is travel safe, even if itâ€™s a tad flimsy. It is prone to cracking but not that quick. Seeing as it contains shea butter it is prone to melting in summer months, so itâ€™s best to store in a cool place.
It lasts a mere 2-3 hours, after which reapplication is required but itâ€™s pretty nice for some TLC for lips beneath lipsticks and the like. It can be used in place of traditional Vaseline, thanks to itâ€™s all natural (active) ingredient list.
What I like about Khadi Herbal Lip Balm Chocolate:
- Looks a tad tinted
- Huge quantity for the price point
- Smells delicious
- Not sticky at all
- Travel safe packaging
What I don’t like about Khadi Herbal Lip Balm Chocolate:
- Staying time is very low; a mere 1-2 hours
- Not pigmented (as such)
- Only key ingredient list is available
- Availability may be a problem
- Lipbalm tubs are unhygienic
- No SPF
- The packaging can crack easily
Would I repurchase? Nope! I would pick something up with SPF
Would I recommend it to friends? Maybe so, it isnâ€™t too bad a product if you have no problems with the lack of SPF.
