Weleda Everon Lip Balm

22 Jul

I have been looking for a lip balm in a tube that I really love. After trying Weleda’s Everon Lip Balm, I am still looking.

Here are my criteria:

  • easy to open and apply
  • glides on smooth
  • looks glossy
  • stays on a reasonable amount of time
  • nice but not overpowering scent
  • nice flavor a bonus
  • no spf (because that always messes with the scent and flavor. ALWAYS.)
  • natural a big plus

As you know, I absolute LOVE Korres little gloss pots, but I don’t always feel like getting a messy finger applying them – sometimes, like at bedtime, I just want to twist up a balm and be done with it.

For awhile I was using Clinique’s balm at bedtime. It fulfilled a lot of the above criteria, but it had a couple flaws. One, it is a BITCH to open – the smooth, shiny metal tube slides out of even the most lightly moisturized fingers. Two, it has no real flavor or scent, which I kind of miss. At bedtime, it’s fine, but I’d like a balm to carry with me during the day, and then, I don’t know, scent is a plus. I have also tried Caudalie’s balm. Same story – good, but it’s not glossy enough for day wear and it doesn’t have much of a scent. Sigh, my life is so tough.

I decided to try Weleda’s Everon balm, and am currently using it at bedtime. MEH. It has a nice, cocoa butter sort of smell and is easy to open, but it’s HARD, so it is kind of tough to put on, and it’s not at all glossy. I’ll keep using it at bedtime, but the quest for the perfect day balm continues.

    Try Desert Essence Lip tints, coconut flavor. They have a gloss, they are organic and easy to apply.

    Have you tried Burts Bees, in the stick version it is my all time favorite. A little shine, a minty smell and flavour, and best of all the mint makes my lips tingle and it feels deliciously sassy!

      I used to use that before bed… I do like it but maybe I’m looking for more of a gloss? I don’t know. Maybe I am just being too picky. :)
