Alverde – Vanille Mandarine

What I say

I love this lip balm! It has quite a thick consistency and on other blogs I read before that this was the reason some people did not get along with it. Personally I prefer this formula over traditional chap sticks though. It smells fruity (though I am not sure I could say it smells necessarily like tangerines) and moisturises my lips well. I like to use it under lipstick, making sure to give it some time to sink in before I put colour on top. Only reason I did not repurchase it is the fact it is only available in Germany, and at the moment I don’t have any access to it.
