Happy birthday By Terry Baume de Rose! You’ve just turned 10!
That’s a huge milestone in a beauty world where most skincare products barely last one year. To celebrate in style, By Terry gave you a whole new dress – the limited edition pot features little hearts all over it.
The formula inside? Fear not. That hasn’t changed one bit. What makes it so special to last the test of time: amazing performance or cult hype?
Let’s find out:
Castor oil tops the ingredient list. Thank its moisturising properties for that.
When dry, castor oil forms a protective layer on the skin that binds water in. All this moisture keeps your lips soft and hydrated for hours.
The catch? Castor oil feels slightly sticky on the lips.
Shea Butter is another moisturising goodie. Like castor oil, it creates a protective barrier on the skin that slows down water loss.
But its moisturising effects may last longer. Up to 8 hours, according to science. Longer, according to my personal experience.
The best part? Rumour has it, Shea butter may have antioxidant properties that help you reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Yep, petrolatum is here, too. I know a lot of you don’t like it but hear me out.
Petrolatum is derived from petroleum but it’s NOT petroleum. It undergoes a strict refining process that removes ALL its toxic impurities, making it safe.
It works just like castor oil and Shea butter: it creates a protective barrier that traps moisture into your lips. Because when moisture stays in, your lips stay soft and kissable.
What Else Do You Need To Know?
I’ve mentioned these 3 because they’re the most famous moisturising ingredients in here. But they’re just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many here that do the same thing.
No wonder this is one of the moisturising lip balms on the market. It treats chapped lips and keeps your pout hydrated for hours.
That’s the awesome part. The good part? By Terry Baume De Rose has antioxidants (including vitamin E) that fight the free radicals that cause premature aging. Shame they’re in a jar, though. It’s a known fact that antioxidants lose their effectiveness when they get in contact with light and air.
The Bottom Line
Is By Terry Baume De Rose worth $60.00? Depends on how you see it, I guess. There’s nothing revolutionary to justify such a high price tag here. But if you’re struggling to find a lip balm that can help you deal with chapped lips, this may just about be worth it for you.
