The Maybelline Baby Lips balms have been staples in my purse for years and a popular SPF lip treatment among many. I use the clear balm when I need moisture without color settling into the texture of dry lips and I prefer Pink Punch when I need hydration and protection with a pretty wash of color. With the amount of product per tube and the moisturizing formulas these balms are a great value!
Maybelline has recently launched a new addition to the Baby Lips family for those who need extra relief from dryness. The Dr Rescue balm is medicated to temporarily relieve discomfort associated with cracked lips and provide 12 hours of hydration. I think many of us have had those days when we decided against the bright, heavy lipstick due to noticeably chapped lips; so before bed I treat mine with gentle exfoliation and a generous slathering of Dr Rescue balm.
I have the shade Berry Soft which is very subtle despite its bright hue. The balms also come in six other neutral shades that help even lip tone, including: Too Cool (clear), Pink Me Up, Just Peachy, Soothing Sorbet and Coral Crave. The website claims that “in one minute lips will feel soothed, in one day lips look less dry and in one week lips are reborn.” They also contain eucalyptus to help heal and have a slight menthol scent which is a tad medicinal.
When I use the balm there is a refreshing, cool sensation that is quite alleviating. I am a bit picky when it comes to lip balms but I like this product and will continue using it for smooth, supple lips all year round.
You can get the Dr Rescue lip balms at most drug stores and at Walmart for about $3.48.
