Received this lip balm in my ALLURE Box. My lips get so dry in the winter, so the timing was perfect. I love that this is a clean plant-based product. Unfortunately, the balm is slimy and smells, and even tastes like warm meat fat. I tried to like it, but it’s just awful.
Hi Elisa, we are so sorry to hear this! The scent in our Pure is entirely natural and comes from the Rose and Orange Peel essential oils. However, everyone's reception to scent varies, but we thank you for your honesty and sharing this feedback with us!
I love it my lips feel like butter
Thank you Rosa! Here's to soft buttery lips
Ridiculously amazing, that is! Like others, I received this in my Allure box for January and I. AM. SAVED. I have chapped, rough, dry lips. And even when it's moisturized, it's still not smooth (it's like there's just some dead skin cells that just cling for dear life that no amount of scrubbing or exfoliating has ever removed). I was skeptical when I tried this because I lost all hope. But I applied an extra thick layer before I went to bed one night and when I woke up, my lips were the smoothest it's ever been. Then I put on some more in the morning and then some in the afternoon. Come night-time, I exfoliated my lips with a sugar scrub and then put on another thick layer of this balm. The NEXT morning, ohhhhh boy! I had never felt my lips like this before. I couldn't stop touching it. You can even see the difference on your lips. It's smooth, glossy, and the texture is even. When you exfoliate, you notice that more dead skin cells come off. You lick your lips and 1) It tastes like orange tea and 2) Your lips feel almost porcelain-like. You kiss your partner and they ask you if you did something special to your lips. Oh, and did I mention that it's great for your cuticles too? Sometimes I scoop out just a little extra so I can give my nails the same lovin. Seriously y'all. This stuff is ridiculous.
Thank you so much for this amazing review, Dani! We are so happy to hear that you've found a keeper!
i got this in my allure beauty box and it is literally LIFE CHANGING. I have super cracked and dry lips that I constantly have to put chapstick on and not a single product has helped. I’ve tried lip masks, treatments, oils, chapsticks, everything I could think of and I didn’t have much luck. I used this for one night and my lips were no longer dry or chapped. It is now apart of my everyday routine and I use it religiously. Now if that wasn’t enough, I have an eczema patch on my neck that I also couldn’t get rid of. I tried expensive creams, bag balm, lotions, anything that people would recommend. After 2 nights of putting this on, it has pretty much healed itself. I honestly can’t believe the results and this had made such an amazing impact on my life and confidence. I’m sold on Akar products and now I can’t wait to try out all of their different products. This is by far the best lip product I have ever tried and I can’t recommend it enough!!
Thank you so much, Piper! We are so happy for you and hope that your skin stays soft and moisturized with our akar butter!
I've used akar before and really loved it, so I was so excited to get this in my Allure Beauty Box. I exclusively wear natural lip balms that don't include petroleum / mineral oil so this akar balm makes the cut. It feels so soothing going on - day or night - and I absolutely love the very subtle natural orange scent. You won't be disappointed with this lip balm! I'm going to take it skiing with me this season; the tin jar will fit easily into my jacket and it will be perfect for both the plane and for the slopes on you lips, nose, and cuticles as needed.
Thank you for this amazing review, Trina! We hope your lips stay soft & hydrated this winter!
I just recieved this in my Allure Beauty box and I'm addicted! I've been using it every night. The texture is just so smooth and glides nicely on my lips. Its not sticky at all! Very glad I got a chance to try this product.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us, Allison! We are so happy to hear that our Pure Lip Restoration is part of your night routine!
I have tried every and I mean every lip balm, salve, gloss, you name it. No matter what the price point or promise. Even in the supposed all natural, there is always one element that doesn’t cut it. If nothing else it’s the fragrance. I am highly sensitive to fragrance of any kind even the so called natural ones. I received this lip restore in one of the box subscriptions. I was hesitant to try yet another one but nothing was helping my dry, peeling lips this winter. I now have used it for three days - morning and night. No more dry lips! AND DRUM ROLL - no detectable scent and not goopy. Just smooth and silky lips. BTW. I am 67 years old so when I say I have tried everything that’s a lots of fails! When I finish this review I’m heading to the products to order more and check out what other products they offer. Thanks the “lip” saver.
You've just made our day! Thank you so much for this kind review, Frances! We are so glad that you've found a keeper! Here's to soft lips :)
Love this product so much, only have been using it for 3 days. I work in a nursing home and it’s always so dry in there. This product has completely reversed my cracked and dry lips. I’ve tried so many products and this is one of the only ones that has actually worked. I highly recommend this to anyone struggling with this winter weather!!!!
So glad we could help! Hope your lips stay soft & hydrated in winter :)
Love this product! Excelled moisture.
Thank you for the lovely review, Jannine! We're so glad to be a part of your self-care rituals. Hope your lips stay soft & moisturized!
This lip balm is so soothing to my dry lips as the days get colder. The scent is very delicate and not distracting like other balms, this is very natural. I love this product so much and I would highly recommend it as an addition to any day/night skincare routine!
