Avene High Protection Lip Balm SPF 30 Review & Price in India

Avene High Protection Lip Balm SPF 30 Review, Price & Buy Online in India

Hello Lovelies,

Summers are here and that means heat, sweat and ugh tanning! We tend to apply sunscreen more religiously in summers(though you must make it a habit all year round) and every time I do I have always wondered as to why aren’t their any lip balms with higher SPF! I mean cmon, if we apply a minimum of SPF 30 for our skin then we surely need something equal or probably higher for our lips,right? Thats when I came across Avene High Protection Lip Balm which has SPF 30 and I’m ready to share my opinion on it.

Packaging
The Avene High Protection Lip Balm comes in an usual twist up lip balm packaging. It has the full list of ingredients mentioned on the barrel. I love the fact that it does not come in a tub packaging(you all know how much I detest those 😐 ) and is travel friendly. Just pop it in your clutch and you’re good to go 😀

Texture
The Avene Lip Balm has a very hydrating yet lightweight texture. Due to my allergies acting up again my lips are getting very dry and this instantly moisturizes my lips. I have been using this even while sleeping when I obviously do not need any sun protection because of its hydrating texture 😀 Those with chapped lips are bound to love it!

The lip balm has a slight powdery sent to it which is common across the range. It will not bother you even if you have a sensitive nose and fades away upon application.

Efficacy
I have been wearing this everyday for the past 2 weeks especially while going out in the sun. I love the fact that this is waterproof so you can even apply this while swimming and protect yourself 😀 It was high time that brands started providing higher protection against the sun for our lips and I’m glad Avene has catered to our needs.

Staying Power
This is a clear lip balm which has a decent wear time. It stays put for about 3 hours after which I need a re-apply it. It does not dry out my lips and I do not need an immediate re-application.

The only issue is the price. Its certainly quite high for a lip balm though a lip balm that provides high protection against the sun. However, since its Avene( a reputed french luxury brand which many people swear by)  I guess it justifies the price. Much better than spending 400 bucks for a tinted lip balm on Lakme methinks 😉

HBM Rating
4.5 / 5(Reviewed by Lisha B.)Avene High Protection Lip Balm SPF 30 Review & Price in India

HBM Recommendation: Avene High Protection Lip Balm SPF 30 protects as well as heals dry and chapped lips. Besides the high protection, it contains Pre-tocopheryl, a photostable Vitamin E precursor which gives additional cell protection. The Avene lip balm is waterproof and stays put for about 3 hours. It is a sunscreen for your lips which is extremely important for keeping sun damage and lip pigmentation at bay. Be wise and protect your lips with Avene this summers 😉
