This is my first ever VLCC product. This one is also my second lip balm ever after Vaseline lip care and I absolutely love this one. I was helping a friend with her parlour day and it happened to be VLCC salon. She already had the strawberry one and you know my love for mint so I got this one.

My Take on the Lip Balm:
Packaging: The lip balm comes in a tub transparent and with a blue cap. The tub is small and sturdy, very very travel friendly. The plastic is good and did not break even when I dropped it hell lot of times.
Color: It is transparent with a little green in it. The green is completely negligible and does not give any tint s o no need to worry that it my spoil your lip colour.
Texture: It is the best lip balm texture wise I have seen. The texture is soft not at all waxy and glides on really smooth on to your lips. This one melts with heat a bit, turns a little runny but not too messy either.
Staying Power: This lip balm stays maximum for 3 hours if you don’t speak much, eat or drink anything. After that you need application. The moisturizing stays for an hour more.
Fragrance: The fragrance is like fresh mint, sort of like center fresh gum. It gives a nice cooling sensation to my lips immediately after application
Coming to the SPF part, it does protect a bit but it didn’t prevent my lips from getting pigmented because of pollution and heat in Bangalore.

Do I Recommend?:
