Kiss Me: Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm 7-Day Test and Full Review

* This is not a sponsored post. Item was purchased by my own money and what's written here are based on my own experiences.
** I was supposed to post this last Sunday night, but we have been to my husband's cousin's wedding and was so tired when we got home. Editing (cropping and watermarking) the pictures took me some time. All pictures were raw, they were not enhanced. Sorry if the pics didn't give justice to the effect, I used only a webcamera.




I was finally able to purchase Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm! I've been wanting to have this ever since Maybelline released it but for some reasons, I couldn't purchase it right away.

A Little Info About My Lips...

My lips are dark and pigmented. Maybe due to putting on lipsticks and lip glosses. I love layering lip products as they help conceal my dark lips. People would say I probably smoke, because that's one of the reasons why lips darken. But I don't smoke. I hate smoking. I love drinking coffee (like my Nikki Eonni) and now, I am into my Korean Red Ginseng Tea. Those were probably the culprits of my sad, dark puckers…

Anyway...

Super want!!! =D

Here's my 7-day test and full review on it. Hope it helps! ^__^

Day 4
My lips are turning to a pale pink shade. The dark areas are becoming lesser in appearance. Lips are much softer and smoother. I exfoliated my lips with a facial sponge then applied Baby Lips.

*I think I over-exfoliated because the middle part of my lower lip seemed to have a very, very thin layer of skin left, I thought I made a hole! Teehee! Nevertheless, I still applied Baby Lips before going to bed. Even hubby asked me to swipe a little of it on his chapped lips. =D

Day 5
Lips are a little red from exfoliating (too much? =D) yesterday. Lips are lighter in appearance. The middle part of my lower lip has healed  already (Wow! So fast!!! Baby Lips worked wonders overnight!). I love how my lips looked now! The dark areas have not faded yet, but are less pigmented. I can't get enough of pouting and staring at my lips in the mirror on my work table! =D

I was offline on Days 6-7 (reason I couldn't take photos) so, to compensate for that, I posted Day 8.

Day 8
Lips are softer, has less lines and darkening lessened. I think I should keep up the habit of exfoliating my lips once a week and keep re-applying my Baby Lips Lip Balm. =)

Ready to Kiss!!!

What I love about it...
  • Glides on smoothly
  • Smells nice
  • Clear color - well, so-so about it. I love wearing lipsticks to give my lips a splash of color but then, if this is to improve the overall condition of my lips, then, I guess, it’s okay. =D
  • Has SPF 20 - Good for people who are always out
  • Results are visible in just a few days (depending on lip condition)
  • Affordable! ^__^


What I don't love about it...
  • None!!! It's SO good!!! ^__^


Price:

For only P79.00, you'll get baby soft lips in ONE WEEK! ^__^


Where to buy?

Available in Watson's and leading department stores nationwide.

Whom would I recommend this to?

I would definitely recommend this to every one, girls and boys alike, who suffers from dark and chapped lips. Also good for people who wear lipsticks and glosses a lot.

5 out of 5
Mwuah! Mwuah! Love it!!!
^__^

Tips:
  • Apply before putting on lipstick or lip gloss.
  • Exfoliate lips to shed away the layer of dead skin.
  • Reapply as needed. As what was printed in the packaging: "Reapply when lips are exposed to strong sun, wind and cold for maximum protection."


So... I expect my lips to be uber kissable after 8 weeks! Fighting!

For now, I'll learn how to kiss from Sebastian...

Isn't he so cute? Haha! =D

I will stock up on this amazing lip balm! Yeah, Jagi (my hubby), call me hoarder, but I super love it! Don't tell me you don't! Hahaha!!! ^__~

Have you tried this lip balm? What are your thoughts and observations?

Here's a big, plump kiss from Sebastian!!!



Have a great day!

^__^

Q po, may naka experience na ba sa inyo nito:

I used Baby Lips revitalizing menthol before, really happy with the result coz my lips' fine lines disappear, really making my lips fuller. But after two weeks had to stop using it coz it started to feel really itchy and I noticed "prickly heat" bumps on my upper lip... I stopped, thinking I might be allergic to one of the ingredients. After around a month my lips returned to normal: thin and full of lines... How sad...

After around 1yr, I bought Dr. Rescue w/ SPF30. Im on my two weeks of use now and no signs of allergic reactions whatsoever. I wanna try baby lips again other than revitalizing menthol.. Any advise?

Hello CIF!
Thank you for visiting my sleeping site! Haha!

Maybe you are allergic to the menthol. However, I wasn't able to try that one. You might want to get a check up first to see what caused your allergic reaction. If your doctor gave you a go signal, then, you might want to try other variants of Baby Lips. ^__^
