Summary
Oriflame has a number of Tender Care Protecting Balms varying from Honey to Blackcurrant and Gingerbread. I got the rose-flavoured balm from my friend last winter and it was intended to address my dry skin problems and protect my lips from frosty winter air.
The balm indeed looked very stylish being inside that glamorous little jar and fancy letters engraved upon its lid. It smelled of a chemically treated rose, but that was OK. The instruction said that the balm’s scope of action was not strictly limited by lips but it also encompassed various dry parts of the body such as cuticles, elbows, and, imagine that, even heels! In terms of all those parts the balm does its job well mainly due to its rich waxy (or Vaseline) consistency, however, the lips, to my humble opinion, is not the ones that should be treated with it. If used for quite a time the balm’s effect is reverse and instead of soothing and moisturising it dries the lips. In addition, it has to be applied using fingers which may become a non-hygienic and a messy case if not done at home. If you have parched lips the balm only soothes them, but it does not manifest any strictly curing properties. Moreover, there are better lip balms at the same (or even lower) price.
To this end, I mainly use Oriflame Tender Care Protecting Balm to treat my cuticles prior to manicure or occasionally treat elbows (well, I still have some left and it will be a waste not to use it at all). However, there are also better creams or body butters from other brands to treat those matters. Thus, I do not recommend this balm.
