My Experience With Himalaya Herbals Natural Sun Protection Lip Balm:
The product has a very simple packaging of a lip balm with the twist up function. The body is made of plastic and extremely light. What concerns me is the delicate packaging as I don't feel that it is sturdy enough to travel with. Overall, the packaging could have been a bit better and appealing to the eyes.
The stick is white in color with a mild herbal fragrance. The smell lingers for some time and then fades slowly after an hour of the application. It is totally non-tinted and forms as a semi-glossy layer on the bare lips. Due to the non-tinted formula, it doesn't change the color of the lipstick. The lip balm is not excessively hydrated. The first time when I glided on the lips, it was not as smooth as I expected. Therefore, the lip balm can only be used on scrubbed and flake free lips. The performance is not at all impressive as the lip balm only helps in protecting the lips for some time but doesn't have much effect on the already dried lips. Often the lip balm looks a bit waxy after layering too much.
It is advantageous for summer as the lip balm protect the lips from both the UVB & UVA rays. Hence, it can easily be used under the lipstick without the sun protection. The pack mentions that the lip balm is free from petroleum, silicones, artificial colors, and preservatives and, therefore, there is no harmful chemical effect on the lips. The staying power is extremely low as it can hardly survive heavy meals or even light snacks. It simply stays on lips for 1-2 hours and fades off. Judging the price, I would not call it justified although it appears reasonable. This is because the quality of the lip balm isn't up to the mark and fails to create an impression.

Diva Likes Rating:
I am not at all impressed by the lip balm except for its sun protection properties. I would rather be happy with a tub of Vaseline than buying or recommending this product.
