Review: Venus&Mars Lip balm

I have said before that I love Venus and Mars' products..all their products are organic and are made from pure Emu Oil (I so love emu oil..so I tend to buy stuffs as long as it has emu oil in it haha) plus essential oils that are all good for the skin..also, their products are really affordable and the quality are very good..I have bought twice from them already and so far, I haven't had any problems..customer service is really superb and the products arrived in perfect condition..shipping was fast too :)

Well, my last haul from them was last week..I bought a big bar of Minty Geranium Mud Emu Soap (this is my fave from the 3 soaps I have tried before since this has whitening and anti-microbial properties and it doesn't dry my skin like other whitening soaps plus I can use it as a shaving cream so this is really a 3-in-1 product!) and their Lip Balm..I told Jamie that I will give my review after I tried the lip balm for a week so that I could give the product a chance to work for me..and here's my opinion of the product:
Packaging: 5/5 --> I love the tube container coz I won't need to worry about dirty and sticky fingers when applying the lip balm like in cases of lip balms on pots..The balm container is a traditional white plastic container used by different brands like Chapstick and Blistex (same size too)..all you need to do is rotate the bottom part whenever you need to get some product and that's it! no mess and easy to carry in purses.

Price: 4/5 --> this is only P170..although this is a little pricey compared to other lip balms in the market, this is still a good buy coz this has no petroleum and is 100% organic.

Quality of Product: 5/5 --> this worked wonders on my super dry lips..unlike the other lip balms I have tried before, V&M's lip balm did not leave any whitish stuff on my lips (this happens when my lips are dry and flaking then I put any lip product)..this has no waxy feel and is not sticky..I love the minty and cool feeling that it gave my lips everytime I put it..I also love the moisturizing effect it gave my lips :)

Will I buy it again? Definitely! This is one of the few lip balms that I like using..I also hope that V&M could make a tinted version so that I won't need to put tints or lipsticks anymore :)
