Hello everyone! I am back with another post – Khadi Herbal Kiwi Fruit Lip Balm Review. They say “Diamonds are a girl’s best friends”. Little did they know that the dynamics have changed and today, it’s more like “Lip balms are a girl’s best friend” 🙂 Isn’t it? No matter how many lip balms you may have, there will always be place for that one lip balm in your beauty arsenal. Right?
Being an ardent lip balm lover, I let my fascination for lip balms surpass my tight-fistedness 🙂 And if the lip balm proudly flashes a the ‘Herbal’ tag on its package, it instantly earns Brownie points from me 🙂 I picked up this Khadi Herbal Kiwi Fruit Lip Balm simply because it had the word “HERBAL” printed on its package and here I am going to share my experience of using the same. Without deviating from the topic much, let us now begin with?Khadi Herbal Kiwi Fruit Lip Balm Review.

What Khadi Herbal Kiwi Fruit Lip Balm claims
Softens and moisturizes dry lips
My experience with Khadi Herbal Kiwi Fruit Lip Balm
Packed in a plastic tub with a highly fragile cap, the packaging of Khadi Herbal Kiwi Fruit Lip Balm is anything but sturdy. Not only is tub packaging unhygienic (since everytime you have to use your fingers to scoop out the balm and if you happen to have long nails, then your nails will surely curse you) but also vulnerable to breakage. The plastic used is so fragile that you cannot conveniently stash it in your bag. All these coagulate to make the product very poor in terms of packaging.
Anyway, moving ahead, Khadi Herbal Kiwi Fruit Lip Balm is light green in color and has slightly waxy texture. Only when applied in excess, it’ll turn your lips green! Yes, I know your heart would have skipped a beat but sadly, it does turn your lips green if applied in excess. And I am sure no one, I repeat no one would like to resemble a female version of Hulk 😉
Since the texture is waxy, Khadi Herbal Kiwi Fruit Lip Balm may feel slightly heavy and more so during summers. Moreover, as the complete ingredients’ list is not furnished, I even doubt how ‘herbal’ it really is. In my case, for the first time, a lip balm caused a slightly tingling sensation when applied to lips. This left me thinking about its chemical composition. How can something which proudly proclaims it to be herbal cause a tingling sensation?
Khadi Herbal Kiwi Fruit Lip Balm is far from a solution for those with extremely dry or even dry lips since its moisturization power is low-to-average. It kept my lips moisturized for about 45-50 minutes. And it does not cover even the slightest of pigmentation so those looking for a lip balm that will cover/hide/conceal their pigmented lips should chuck this out straightaway.
I had heard a lot of rave reviews about some other variants of Khadi’s lip balms but so far I have tried only this particular balm from Khadi and the experience has left a bad taste in my mouth (not to be taken literally). It might be the case that other lips balms from Khadi could be good/very good but as far as my personal experience goes, I don’t want to sport green lips (see the swatch to get a faint idea)!!
Khadi Herbal Kiwi Fruit Lip Balm is a dud. With low-to-average moisturization power, zero pigmentation coverage, waxy texture, flimsy and fragile packaging and its gross green tint, I don’t find anything remotely praiseworthy about this lip balm. There are a host of lip balms in the same price range available in the market which will do a way better job than this dud.
