Chapstick Classic Strawberry Skin Protectant Review

Another lip balm review coming your way and it is Chapstick Classic Strawberry Skin Protectant Review. There are a few lip balms which though relatively niche find an ardent and loyal customer base. One cannot help but try them out to see what is it that has such a loyal fan base. Chapstick is one of those lip balms which is supposedly USA’s most used lip balm or rather Number 1 lip balm as it proclaims on its package 🙂 So, that calls for a trial 🙂 Doesn’t it?

Chapstick Classic Strawberry Skin Protectant Review

What attracted me to this Chapstick Classic Strawberry Skin Protectant was its tag of USA’s number one lip balm. Moreover, since this wasn’t easily available so it added more to the fondness 🙂 Anyway, without deviating from the point any more, let’s straight jump to the Chapstick Classic Strawberry Skin Protectant Review and find out how it fared me 🙂

My Experience with Chapstick Classic Strawberry Skin Protectant

Chapstick Classic Strawberry Skin Protectant?is relatively small in size as compared to most other lip balms (Maybelline Baby Lips, Lotus herbals lip balm, etc.) It comes packed in a sturdy plastic roll-up tube with an equally sturdy cap that doesn’t loosen with daily usage. I find it travel-friendly and spillage-free.

On account of packaging, it works well for me. It is not fancy or eye-catching but then, I don’t judge products based on their outward appearance 🙂

The texture of Chapstick Classic Strawberry Skin Protectant is smooth and it is a cakewalk to glide it on your lips. The aroma is very much like that of a bubble gum and persists for a minutes but vanishes into thin air after sometime. It is not too strong or over-powering so those with sensitive noses need not worry at all. The balm has a light pink color as is seen in the pictures however, it doesn’t transfer it to your lips. So, those with pigmented lips should not rely on this lip balm to hide/conceal/cover their pigmentation. Even after 9-10 swipes I was unable to produce the desired tone which was irritating. What’s the purpose in giving it a pink tone when it won’t transfer that tinge to your lips? It provides a nice protective shield for your lips since I have eaten quite a number of times while wearing this lip balm and it didn’t wear off even once 🙂 The moisturization power is meriotorious. It stayed on my lips for a good 3 hours at a stretch while I ate in between too! I feel it has the ability to cure even those lips which are highly dry and in quest of intense moisturization. Also,my lips were softened after its effect ended.

But one look at its ingredients list, and you can’t help but notice the multitude of chemicals it contains. It even has parabens and alcohol. That to me is really a big put-off.

On whole, it works exceptionally well on all parameters except its huge chemical composition as well as zero-to-negligible tint. So, keeping these factors in mind, make an informed choice 🙂

Overall, Good but not exceptional given that Chapstick Classic Strawberry Skin Protectant doesn’t produce any tint and has a lot of chemicals some really toxic ones, added into it (as is seen via the ingredients’ list).
