After being sold out the last 5 times at my local Sephora, I finally came around to ordering the Dior Crème de Rose lip balm online. I figured there had to be some sort of mysterious-magic to this balm for it to be so insanely popular.
Truth is, the “magic” is simple. It’s simplistically the hydrating combination of Rose of Damas essential oil, Vitamins A and E, and Shea Butter, with the added benefit of SPF 10. The result is a formula that is rich, healing and that can’t really be matched by any other products I have tried.
I love using the rose creme right at the beginning of my makeup routine when I prime and moisturize my face. Doing this is particularly useful because by the time you are finished applying any amount of makeup, (no matter how little or how elaborate you get), your lips will be perfectly moisturized, ready for lip gloss, stick, or stain.
Note: The Crème de Rose is also very nice naked as its natural tint gives your lips a pleasant, plumping polish.
Especially during these colder months (at least where I live where it’s still only 40 degrees), everyone needs a trusted lip balm. Even if you’re in a warmer climate, it really doesn’t matter, your lips needs to be somewhat protected.
Yes, you could just get the old chap stick out but sometimes you have to live a little. Besides, there is no way chap stick works as wondrously.
Recently, I also bought this product for my best-bud Jillian (HEY JILLY!) for her birthday and she loves it just as much as I do (and all the countless other people who have said they adore Crème de Rose).
At Sephora, Crème de Rose runs at about $30.
Basically, Dior did it right.
