Fuschia Tropical Alphonso Handmade Lip Balm Review

A lip balm that helps relieve chapped or cracked lips is a must-have in my bag during all seasons, especially in winters. I carefully choose lip balm that helps protecting my lips from the drying effects of wind and cold weather effectively.

Few days back, I got a nicely packed lipbalm from Fuschia in Tropical Alphonso flavour and I
thought to treat myself with the delicious taste of Alphonso ;) 

About 'Fuschia':

Fuschia is range of Handmade Natural Skin Care & Beauty products by Vkare, pronounced as "We Care" that reflects the brand's sole purpose reasonably well. VKare Bio Sciences Pvt. Ltd. is mainly associated with Healthcare and Biotechnology. Currently VKare has 38 variants of soaps and 5 variants of Lip Balms available under the brand Fuschia which are all handmade :)

Out the 5 yummy variants of lipbalms available in Tropical Alphonso, Plush Peach, Choco Butter, Pomegranate Pink and Black Currant flavours, I'm ready with my experience of using Tropical Alphonso Lip Balm today :)

The Fuschia Tropical Alphonso Lip Balm comes packed in a little transparent jar that displays the lip balm color clearly from outside. The screw-rotational lid makes the content safely sealed, and thus the packaging can be considered as your perfect companion during a journey.

 Net Wt.: 8 gms. per pack
Price: Rs. 225/-
Shelf Life: 30 months

The Fuschia Tropical Alphonso Lip Balm is made with 100% vegetarian and natural ingredients including Shea Butter, Kokum Butter with Natural Vitamin E. The natural essential oils like Sunflower Oil, Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil and Mango Flavour have been added for extra soft n supple lips. The organic beewax is the main ingredient that seals the moisture in lips.

My Experience:
My lips generally do not get chapped very very easily if I'm staying at home. But lately I have noticed that my lips get affected by the dry air, cold temperatures, and wind when I'm staying out for long hours due to varied reasons. Obviously, these are the factors that all have a drying effect on our skin, particularly our lips coz the skin layer is very thin.

The day when I got this lipbalm, I applied a thick layer on my lips before going to bed so that the lips feel generously hydrated over the period of few hours when I'm not eating anything. And I realized that I have correctly judged the effectiveness of this lip balm. I wake up to a softer, lipstick-ready pout the next morning. :) Infact the area around my lips was also better moisturized (which generally shows some dryness).

One very impressive point about this lip balm is that though it looks lemony yellow in color when you look at it; but when you apply it on your lips, its completely colorless. So not only you can twin use it as a perfect lip primer, but it can be used as a top coat on your lipcolor. Just apply a thin layer beneath any lipstick and the color will last longer and look more even :)

Yet another interesting fact about all Fuschia lip balms is that it can be used by anyone. By 'anyone' I mean, not only women can enjoy the kissable soft lips, but men can also keep their lips smooth with application of Fuschia lip balm.

The product also claims to use it on any part of the body to prevent moisture loss. So I tested the same on my elbows and found that the dry skin of this part of my body also appreciated its healing combination of natural oils. :)

And not to forget, it smells delicious exactly like a mango (I'm not sure if it also tastes like a mango, coz I have not tasted it as yet, just kidding)  ;) :P

6. Easy Online Availability on websites like Rediff Shopping Myntra, Snapdeal, Shopclues etc.

1. I wish this lipbalm is available in stick or tube form which can be applied directly coz swiping finger on the lipbalm seems to be uneasy as well as unhygienic. 
2. Not easily available in physical stores. 

Overall Thoughts:
Fuschia Tropical Alphonso Lip Balm is a ready-to-use remedy to avoid signs of dryness, pain and swelling on lips as the temperature starts to drop & you can say goodbye to chapped lips this season. 

Hope you find this review informative.
