Review | Dr.Organic Manuka Honey Lip Balm

A couple of weeks back, I had the pleasure of attending the launch of organic skin care brand Dr.Organic and at the end of the event, we were each given a choice of three products to take home and review. I was in need of a lip balm so the Organic Manuka Honey one made it into my bag!

Before I start the review, if you are new to Dr.Organic, I suggest you read my event post where I introduce the brand.

Back to the lip balm, the packaging is very simple and it truly represents the organic theme of the brand without being boring. The Manuka Honey range is just one of the twelve ranges offered by the brand and the range itself comprises 15 products, amongst which is actually this lip balm.

Dr.Organic only sources natural ingredients which are actually beneficial to our skin and Manuka Honey is well renowned for its antiseptic and healing properties. So much so that it is actually dubbed as 'the Healing Honey'. Honey has been used to treat a variety of ailments since ancient times and I have to admit that I do swear by it whenever I have a nasty cough.

Now I can also enjoy the benefits of honey in this lip balm! Manuka Honey is produced from the nectar of the flowers of the Manuka Tree which predominantly grows in New Zealand. Typically, Manuka Honey has a dark colour and pertains a strong, distinctive flavour accompanied by a herby/woody smell - something which you can smell right away as soon as you take the cap off the lip balm.

Stick lip balms are my favourite because they are way more hygienic to use than the tin ones as you don't have to put your fingers into them so that is definitely a plus with this lip balm! However, the big plus is actually the star ingredient which is responsible for healing and restoring dry and chapped lips in no time through cell regeneration. It provides a healing barrier for the lips which do not contain any sebaceous glands to keep them moisturised.

Dr.Organic Manuka Honey Lip Balm also contains Shea butter, Propolis, Beeswax and Vitamin E to help nourish and protect your lips. It feels very comfortable on the lips and doesn't leave that whitish residue unlike most lip balms. It goes on matte and can be used under lipstick. It also provides protection against UVA nad UVB rays with SPF15.

I highly recommend this lip balm especially because of its fast action and smell - if you like the smell of honey that is!
