When I first got this product, I was a little skeptical because it was expensive, especially for a lip balm. But once I started using it, I fell in love. It smooths out my lips and makes them feel super moisturized for hours. It's great to use before applying lipstick, especially liquid lipstick because it provides a smooth canvas.
I picked this up when I was bored. This balm keeps my lips from feeling dry when it's on, I used the entire container, I didn't notice any plumping at all. It has a nice rose scent. Slight taste. Not terrible. Goes on clear with a slight pink tint. Nothing very noticeable though. Not worth another purchase. Didn't feel bad on the lips, but didn't notice any difference or improvement either.
At first I thought it was expensive for a lip balm, but the quality is there and it is so worth your money. Creme de rose makes the lips so soft, plump and super hydrated. It saved my lips all winter long!
This is a miracle lip balm. The scent is a little strong (if you don't like to smell the roses, this product isn't for you) but the balm is awesome. I put it on just before I go to bed and I usually have a little left when I get up in the morning. My lips are no longer chapped, I can wear mattes lipsticks now that my lips are smooth. Only downside is the price. This product would make me happier if it was 15 to 20 bucks less!
Nicole Guerriero recommended this on her youtube channel and anything she says is good I buy! It does incredible things for my dry lips!
This is probably the most expensive lip balm I have ever purchased, but the quality of the product is levelling out the price point and I will say it does wonders for dry lips and keeping them soft and moisturized in general. I bought this in the summer months, so I have not tested it through any cold Canadian winters yet, but as a person that unfortunately picks at her lip constantly, this product repairs any damage easily! I like putting this on in the morning at the beginning of my skin care routine and before going to sleep at night.
I am ashamed to count all the little fancy jars around my house - By Terry, Nuxe, La Mer, Givenchy, Dior...I have pretty much tried them all and cringed at the checkout each time but obviously not enough since the little pots are multiplying & taking over my humble home.
Dior's Creme de Rose was a no-brainer for me because i adore rose scents and the vintage pot made me feel all warm & fuzzy...The texture is very balm-like, there is no stickiness or waxy feel, no weird flavor, the lips feel nourished and the lovely rose scent doesnt linger for too long (boo for me!). Instead of the typical glossy finish i would describe this as more of a matte subdued shine, making it ideal as a lipstick or gloss base.
One issue i had with this was the unexpected & surprising color change in the pot itself. When i first purchased it, the balm was a rosy pink shade but after a few months the colour transformed to bright yellow!!! I was told that the reason was oxidation of the rose oils, which are key in the formulation...There were no other changes - the scent, texture, feel and performance stayed the same but i cant deny that i was a little disturbed by the neon yellow shade.
It might seem like i am being petty but that's the only reason i wouldn't repurchase this again. Even though the color change didnt affect the effectiveness of the balm, I was put off to say the least. The price tag, the brand and rave reviews made me expect more. So even though i am happy i bought it, i wasn't completely wowed so i found myself using it less and less. Then again a few things can compete with my HERO By Terry Baume de Rose :)
If you tend to get dry, flaky lips, then this balm is for you!
I have been slathering this product on my lips every night before I go to bed. The texture is very rich and thick. My lips feel so soft and moisturized when I wake up in the mornings.
It has a strong rose scent, but dissipates fast--something I prefer, since I'm pretty sensitive to strong scents.
Oh and I haven't found it to be plumping at all, if that's what you're looking for.
It is pricey, but that's what is expected of a high end brand.
So if you're looking for a long lasting balm that hydrates your dry and damaged lips, you should give this one a try!
