REN Vita Mineral Lip Balm review

REN are one of my favourite skincare brands – they don’t fill their products with loads of rubbish and create products that really deliver results. Their Hydra Calm range is always on the shelves in my bathroom, so I was really excited to test out their Vita Mineral Lip Balm* and see if it would become another daily staple.

The Vita Mineral Lip Balm comes in a tube with a shaped applicator, and is designed to help repair dry and chapped lips – something that the cold weather can really have an effect on. It’s packed full of shea butter, vitamin E and calendula extract and has a slightly waxy texture when first applied.

The lip balm sinks easily into lips, leaving them feeling moisturised, without being at all greasy. I love the way this lip balm leaves my lips soft and hydrated and will definitely look to repurchase once it runs out. The only down side for me is that it comes in a squeezy tube and for some reason is quite hard to actually get out! Don’t be afraid to squeeze hard – it’s just a bit stubborn!

At £9, this might seem a bit pricey for a lip balm, but you get 15ml of product for this price, which is around 3 times the size of my usual Nivea one, making it pretty good value for money.

You can find REN’s Vita Mineral lip balm online from REN, and in store at Space NK, John Lewis and other REN stockists.

What’s your favourite lip balm?

  4. Love your review! I'm on the quest for a decent lip balm, as my lips are constantly sore and dry. I wrote a post about it recently on my blog: http://daisydabbles.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05/the-secret-to-luscious-lips.html I must try this one out too!
