Lip balms have become my basic necessity since the weather got hot and dry in Delhi. I need them to apply underneath my lipstick, before going to bed and whenever my lips feel dry. A few days ago I received Matra Holistic Lip Care Lip Balm in Vanilla Ice in my February Fab Bag and since the day I got it, I started using it. It’s an all natural lip balm and after using it decently, I’m here with its review!

Matra Holistic Lip Care Lip Balm Vanilla Ice | Review
I’m more inclined towards natural skincare products and whenever I spot them, I just buy them if they are suitable for my skin. I was happy when I got it because my Nivea lip balm was on the verge of getting over and I needed something like this. It comes in a black twist-up packaging which is similar to Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm, This lip balm is free from synthetic agents, parabens, sulfates, silicone, petrochemicals and phthalates. That was such a relief to use such an all natural lip balm on lips. I was quite impressed by its nourishing ingredients.
This lip balm is blue colored but doesn’t impart any tint upon applying. Vanilla Ice variant smells a bit waxy which I don’t really like. The fragrance fades away after a while. It has a waxy texture due to the presence of natural waxes like beeswax and candelilla wax. It glides smoothly on lips and within a coat of this lip balm, I get moisturized and healthy lips. My lips are very dry and they crave moisture. This lip balm contains SPF but has not mentioned how much it is. It stays on my lip for 3+ hours and doesn’t survive meals. Ignoring its smell, so far I’m liking this lip balm because of it being natural and free from chemicals. It’s completely organic to use on lips and with regular usage, I expect it to make them look better.
- Made of 100% natural ingredients
- Handmade product
- Contains SPF
- Keeps lips soft and hydrated
- Fine staying power
- Has a waxy vanilla fragrance
Final Word: I admire this lip balm as it’s made from completely natural ingredients like argan oil, beeswax, vitamin E, shea butter, etc. It instantly hydrates my lips and keeps them moisturized for long. Keeping the con of artificial fragrance aside, it’s worth splurging as it’s handmade, cruelty-free and has SPF!
