This is a soothing, plumping lip balm and it is wonderful. At a whopping £20, you would surely expect it to be! The Creme De Rose is one of those lip balms that you put on last thing at night and when you wake up in the morning, you can still feel it on there doing it's job. It smells amazing, feels amazing and is just absolutely beautiful...
Dior Creme De Rose Lip Balm £20 | Available here
The experts at Dior claim that it's extreme nourishing power comes from the 'rare and precious' Damask Rose essential oil extract, which is combined with Shea butter and an anti ageing complex to produce this unique formula. It is certainly an extremely soothing and hydrating product however as far as plumping goes - I'm not convinced. It does nurture the lips and prevent dryness, thereby giving a smoother appearance and perhaps the illusion of fuller lips, however I don't find it hugely plumping. Having said that, that doesn't let it down as a product for me - the consistency is beautiful and it smells gorgeous. I'm not one to fall weak at the knees for rose water scents, however this is somehow subtle and mesmerising, at the same time. I do feel, that for £20, the packaging somewhat lets it down as a high end lip balm. However, inside the pot, is a product of pleasure.
Because of the price tag, I tend not to wear this under lipstick as it is an expensive product, so I don't like the effects to be masked by putting anything over the top! But, if you do suffer with dry, chapped lips, or even if you are just on the hunt for a quality, high end lip balm, then I would thoroughly recommend this. J'adore.
