Maybelline Baby lips Dr.Rescue | Review

Yet another review on this wonderful line of lip products. Do I like it more, like or the same as the original formula?




I’d have to say it’s about the same as the original Baby lips in Peppermint.
The packaging is quite the same as the original, save for the white label which makes it seem more clinical (I guess), and they also sport the same amount of product, 4.4g (0.15oz). The price was  $8.75 in Collins if I'm not mistaken. I also think that’s a dollar more expensive than the regular formula.

 I‘m not impressed by Dr. Rescue Baby Lips at all. It feels almost the same as the Peppermint original. But I also should note that my lips are hardly ever dry to cracking (thanks to my intake of water). This formula does boast 0.5% Menthol which does feel cooling and minty on the lips. Again something that I experienced with my favourite.  The formula is moisturising as with the others, and for the first few days of use made my lips peel. Afterwards, my lips were silky soft.


The colour payoff for the Coral Crave balm I have is non-existent. Not a drop of pigmentation. Good if you plan on using it over lip sticks, but blah if you wanted to give your lips some colour without the hassle.There are other ones though, which may have better pigmentation. I’m yet to try them.

Pros:

  • Moisturising formula
  • Contains 0.5% Menthol
  • Gives slight gloss to the lips

Cons:

  • Little to no colour payoff
  • Not very different from the Original Baby lips in Peppermint.

The Raw Sugar

I may try this in another colour, but truly, I’m not expecting much of a difference in the formula. I was not as impressed by these lip balms as I hoped to be. REad my thoughts on the original Baby Lips here.
