Review of L'Occitane Olive Organic Lip Balm by luloo
Where to begin with this? They don't list their ingredients on their website, and they want to give you the impression that it's a "natural" product. Nothing could be further from the truth. It's a very long ingredients list, loaded with unpronounceable chemicals. I'm not a stickler for "natural" if the product works, but I've had some of my best experiences with lipbalms made out of primarily natural oils and butters, like Jack Black lipbalm, whereas this doesn't moisturize the lips very much at all. It wears just like a clear lipgloss as opposed to a balmy, moisturizing skincare product. In fact, Revlon Super Lustrous lipgloss is more moisturizing. It also has a very strong, unpleasant herbal scent to it and an unpleasant taste. At $12, it's extremely expensive for what it is. Not only that, but L'Occitane online made a mistake with my order, and dragged their feet correcting it. So you're not paying that high price for good customer service either. An absolutely terrible experience all around that gives me an extremely poor impression of the brand as a whole. You can't return used items either - they don't guarantee their products in any way - so I threw it in the trash. One of the worst products I've ever used and a complete waste of $12.
