ELF Therapeutic Conditioning Balm

I recently purchased the ELF Therapeutic Conditioning Balm (along with other beauty items) and I wanted to do a quick review on it.  Normally I do like to try out products for several weeks (to even months) before I make a review, simply because I want to be able to provide as much of an honest and accurate review as possible.  However with this ELF product I was not too happy with from the first application, so I thought I'd share it with you all.

As much as I LOVE ELF products, I am not overly impressed with the quality or claims of this balm.  The ELF Therapeutic Conditioning Balm claims that because it is infused with Vitamins A & E and Shea Butter, it:
Provides Intensive Long lasting Moisture
Helps treat & prevent chapping
Instantly soothes & smoothes lips
 The balm stick is the type that you roll to the left/right to rotate the product in and out of the packaging, similar to other chap sticks.  Well immediately upon my first use, the balm wouldn't rotate anymore so 1/3 of the product was wasted because I couldn't rotate nor push the product back down.
The product itself felt a little bit like smooth wax, so it didn't necessarily soothe or smooth out my lips, it just felt like there was a thin layer of product sitting on my lips. Contrary to what I thought the color would be, the balm comes off as clear once applied on the lips.

I am not too disappointed simply because this balm is only $1.00, I am a big fan of ELF products and will continue to purchase other items that I love, but I will definitely not be picking this up again.
Have you tried this balm? What do you think about it? Do you have any ELF favorites?

  1. sorry this didn't turn out to be a good product at least it was only $1

  2. At least it was only a buck =)

    NEW POST! http://www.nikkistyle.net/2012/04/would-you-wear-this-trend-bold.html

  3. What a shame that it didn't turn out! It's a hit or miss with elf I guess(:

  4. I dont like their lip glosses either so I wouldnt try their balm. But this is a great review of it!


  5. Ugh... I'm so with you on this product. I can't even really describe how it makes my lips feel and you even get this awful almost overwelming of your mouth when you breathe (at least I did). I rubbed it off immediately and tossed it in the trash, not even worth a buck.

    I do like some elf products but don't care for any of their lip products. I mainly like their eyeshadows and blushes.

  6. That's too bad, but elf is a hit and miss for me but I generally really like elf products but there are a few items that should be avoided. Great review hun. xoxo

  7. I have a couple of these...I like them but don't love them...they are like my last resort balm when I cant find my favorite lips balms! haha
