Most of the time, I don't review products that are duds, because I'm too occupied with stuff I love. But that also means that I sometimes spot the worst products in my best friend's bag! I mean my own best friend! And then I get blamed for not telling her that it's rubbish before she bought it. So I decided that I'm going to post these mini reviews of products that don't work the way they are supposed to, at all!
Yes, yes, I know I keep saying what works for me might not for you, but some products wont work for anybody. Hell! They don't work. Period.
So no more wasting time, Presenting to you, ladies and gentlemen the Vaseline Lip Therapy Lip balms.
Verdict- They're rubbish. Do not buy these!
I picked up three of these, all colourless, for lip pampering while I slept. Gave one to mum (who feels the same way about these as me, BTW). I used the cocoa and she used the aloe vera. These do nothing other than sit on the lips like wax. If only, my lips feel drier, after. I got called zombie by my brother, because I had grey lips after wearing a few coats of this (since the regular 2-3 coats did nothing). I really feel ripped off because the regular Vaseline jar does so much more and a medium sized tub retails for around 30 rupees!
These are for Rs 109 and I'm kicking myself because I totally should have gotten the Nivea ones instead. In the photo below, I've obviously scraped a lot more than normal to picture the waxy product.
Moral of the story-It doesn't matter how it smells or how it looks if it fails to do what it's essentially supposed to!
