Christian Dior Creme de Rose Lip Balm

Christian Dior Creme de Rose lip balmHey Lovelies,
The other day I made the mistake of going to the Dior counter while I was on my lunch break at work. I had no intention of buying anything but then I tried the Dior Creme de Rose lip balm and all good intentions went flying out the window. I've heard quite a few bloggers raving about this product and now I am the proud owner of it I thought I'd do a little review and let you know what I think of this rather pricey lip balm. Well, first of all I can confirm that this is by far the most luxurious lip balm I have ever used! (Yes, you cynics out there are quite right in saying that for £20, it better had be haha!).
The Dior Creme de Rose Lip Balm contains Damask Rose essential oil extract and Shea butter. According to the Dior website, these ingredients will leave your lips feeling moisturised, plumped and soft. Now I certainly agree that this lip balm softens and moisturises my lips, but I am not so sure about the plumping part as I have not noticed my lips being any fuller whilst I've been using this product. But then again, I don't really fancy looking like Courtney Stodden anyway so maybe that's a good thing haha! As the name suggest, the Dior Dior Creme de Rose Lip Balm does have a subtle rose scent to it which might not be everyone's cup of tea. However I really like the smell, otherwise I wouldn't have wasted my precious Boots points on it!

For those of you who like swatches here's what the lip balm looks like on the lips. As you can see, it doesn't really add any colour except maybe a slight pink sheen to the lips. The sheen does fade quite quickly though.

What I like about this product is that it really moisturises and softens my lips. The consistency of this is very thick, but it still has a soft texture that absorbs well into my lips without making them feel sticky. It also makes a great primer for lipstick!
The one negative thing I have to say about this product is the packaging. It comes in a really simple off-white plastic pot with a screw top lid. Most Christian Dior products have stunning packaging. I just think that for a £20 lip balm they could have really made a bit more of an effort. The plastic doesn't feel cheap but I would have preferred it to look a little bit more glamorous. This is a Christian Dior product after all!
Now I know if I wanted some lip balm I could have bought a pot of Vaseline or Carmex, but where would the fun be in that eh? I am pretty pleased with my little purchase (thank you Boots points!), and if you are a lover of lip balms or looking for a luxurious product to add to your make up bag, I'd recommend checking out Dior's Creme de Rose lip balm. With Christmas almost around the corner, it would even make the perfect stocking filler for any beauty lover!
What do you think of this lip balm? Let me know in the comments below.
Thanks for reading!

  1. Ah I'm so jealous I've wanted this for too long! Personally I love the packaging, it's very vintage looking! But I know what you mean, I do feel like they could've used something less plasticy and a bit more expensive!

  2. I've heard so much about this lip balm from YouTube beauty gurus, and I've always been interested to see if it really lives up to the hype.. It sounds really nice but I'm not sure if I would drop £20 on it just yet :) xx

  3. Now I do love a luxury product... I think this sounds lovely and your lips do look nourished and healthy. I totally agree it's a shame about the packing as for £20 you would expect a little decadence!

  4. This is such a luxurious treat for yourself - I feel the same about Chanels nail polish remover, yes there are cheaper alternatives but sometimes those Boots points need to be spent on something special.
