LIP SERVICE: CHANEL VS CLEAN & PURE



If given the choice would you spend $50 or $5 for a lip balm?
Lips are just as important as the eyes, flakes are not cute and must be avoided where possible. So what's better? A uber-luxe balm or a natural cost-effective one? I've done testing and here is my review below:

CHANEL boy de chanel lip balm
Claim: Ultra-light balm made of Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter and antioxidant Vitamin E derivative, designed to be matte and nourishing for 8 hours.
Thoughts: First of all the Component is luxurious. Navy Blue, Chanel logo and it's weighted to make you feel fancy. Originally I was really blah to this balm. I took this on my recent Paris trip and when you travel 24 hours your lips are not happy and this lip balm did not help. I wasn't going to throw it out, I spent a pretty penny for it and it's not going into the bin for that reason. When I got home and continued to use the balm and my lips got used to it and it absorbed and wore well. I feel like I had to Reapply it a lot to keep my lips soft. Because the component is luxe it's Pocket-Friendly it doesn't soften in the heat (remember my trip to Paris it was 34 degrees plus!). Worst of all it only lasted a month... sad.
Worth It? Repeat?: This lip balm is a right of passage but nothing 'amazing' to repeat. For a $50AU lip balm, I expect plump hydrated lips, but this is not the case. What it excels in is in its component whilst the balm is good, just nothing memorable for the price.

CLEAR & PURE lip balm
Claim: The Australian made balm is made with quality natural ingredients Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Vitamin E, and Manuka Beeswax. 
Thoughts: I was lucky enough to be #gifted the full range of 7 balms (Peppermint, Manuka Honey, Rose/Tinted, Cocoa, Coconut, Vanilla & Pawpaw) the different flavours generally mean there is an added natural oil/ingredient to the standard 3 ingredients. The balm goes on smooth and leaves the skin with a light sheen (and a tint with the rose). You can tell the balm is oil-based which means it goes on really easily and helps to nourish the lips. I do prefer round lip balm tubes rather than the oval Component for application, but that's just personal choice. There is a little bit of taste you get from it which you would expect from the ingredients, not a deal-breaker but something to think if you're sensitive to tastes. These balms are also well priced at $5 so you can try out each flavour without breaking the bank. 
Worth It? Repeat?: Overall Clean & Pure's lip balms are good. The fact that the ingredients list is minimal and it's Australian made is a big thumbs up. I would prefer the component to be rounded for easier application. As it is a natural balm you have to be aware of what your skins likes and what it doesn't. For instance, as much as I love peppermint, I can't use it on my face so keep that in mind. 



Who is the Winner??

WINNER: Clean & Pure! Overall Clean and Pure wins against the $50 Chanel Lip Balm. It was a close race but overall the Clean and Pure matches Chanel's balm qualities without any nasties and for a fraction of the price. Aesthetics are great, but ultimately it comes down to whether the formula does the job or not. Don't you agree?
