Bargain Haul: Korres Mandarin Lip Butter Lip Balm SPF 15 Review

I picked up two Korres Mandarin Lip Butters from the ASOS sale – I think they cost £3.90 which is quite a big discount from the retail price.

I bought it in pink and peach. I am a fan of the Mango Butter lip balms in the pot – they are quite pigmented and rather lovely in texture too!

They Say:

Lip butter with sun protection that instantly hydrates and softens the lips. Shea butter and Sunflower wax deeply nourish and offer long-lasting care, while Mandarin oil conditions dry lips. Ideal for chapped lips.


These have a SPF 15 in them which is handy, I am sure the sun leaves my lips extra dry.

Both of these lip balms are really round!
Not like a lipstick shape at all. I find it kinda suspicious:




There’s practically ZERO pigment, bah! If you are buying these bear in mind it’ll make no difference which one you buy anyway, plus they’re quite a hard balm – not horrible just quite hard and I prefer a creamier lip balm. So it was cheap, but kind of a pointless purchase anyway.

    I can’t believe how different these are in texture and colour to the Lip butter in pots! I’ve managed to accumulate most of the different flavours, and I think my favourite scent is the quince one but my favourite shade is the jasmine (which smells like burnt toffee Mmmmmmmm)…but they are just so soothing on dry, chapped lips, and don’t leave a funny aftertaste like some of the petroleum based lipbalms can :S Thanks for the review Row, now I know there’s no need to try these out!
