I received the Hedonista Choco-Nut Lip Salve in my Mauvelush November Mellow Edition and my lips have been smelling and tasting like chocolate ever since. This gourmet lip balm is made of ingredients such as melted chocolate, peanut butter and cocoa butter which makes it hard not to eat a spoonful of the product. It also contains a bunch of nourishing oils such as castor oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, as well as beeswax, that make it extremely rich and hydrating.
The lip balm is pretty thick but melts upon application, leaving a nourishing layer of oil on the lips that makes them super soft and moisturized. I am usually not a fan of lip balms that come in a tub packaging because you need to dip your fingers in them every single time, but this kind of a thick and waxy lip balm is what my lips need during the colder months or else they become extremely parched.
The lip balm is almost transparent and does not sit oddly on the lips like some of the other thicker lip balms. It sinks into the lips really fast and keeps them hydrated for several hours. If you are someone who enjoys the smell of chocolate then you will love this product, especially for the winter months. However, if you are not a fan of strong, sweet scents in beauty products then you may want to give this one a pass.
Overall, I do enjoy this product a lot and love its cute (and luxurious) packaging too. I also appreciate the fact that this lip salve does not contain any parabens, sulfates or phthalates. I do wish that the price of the product was much lesser than the INR 465 for which it retails but to be fair this 15gm tub will last you for months. This is a must buy for lip balm lovers who prefer something extra-nourishing as well as uniquely flavored.
I hope that this review was useful. You can buy the Hedonista Choco-Nut Lip Salve here.
