Lips are hundred times more sensitive than the tip of our fingers. It must be moisturized well so that it doesn’t suffer from dryness or chapping. There are plenty of lip care products that claim to provide the ultimate care to the lips. I am sure most of you must be having more than one lip balm in your stash. From what I’ve observed over years, men are more sorted when it comes to choosing something as basic as a lip balm. But we women would love to have a bunch of lip balms that has a cute packaging, lovely tint, not too sticky, not too glossy and almost consumable lip balms. 😛 So, here I am with a review on yet another lip care stuff which was lying in my bag for quite a while, waiting to be reviewed. Read to know what I have to say about Just Herbs Coorgi Coffee Lip Smoothening Salve.
Just Herbs Coorgi Coffee Lip Smoothening Salve
What’s the Difference Between Lip Balm and Lip
Many of you must be wondering why this particular lippie is called a ‘lip salve’ when you are used to hearing ‘lip balms’. Let me tell you a simple difference that makes salves different from your regular chap sticks.
A lip balm is harder and firmer than a lip salve. This is because of the amount of bee wax used to make lip balm is greater than that of lip salve. Sometimes lip salves are made without bee wax altogether and thus it has softer consistency. This is very effective in healing wounds as it penetrates easily through the skin.

What Does It Claim?
An indulgent lip remedy enriched with coffee extracts from the hilly slopes of Coorg in Southern India, home to one of the world’s best coffee beans. This coffee lip balm is loaded with the anti-oxidant and detoxifying effect of Coorgi Coffee Beans. This colorless buttery salve uses a base of certified organic beeswax, certified organic cold-pressed oils of Avocado, Safflower and Sweet Almond along with ultra moisturizing Shea Butter. Unlike petroleum jelly and other petroleum derived mineral oils, these natural ingredients not only seal in the lips’ moisture but also impart additional hydration to coarse and parched lips without clogging pores. Licorice root extract helps brighten dull, darkened lips gradually giving them their natural sheen.
What Went Inside This Cute Tub?
My Take on This Lip Salve
Just Herbs Coorgi Coffee Lip Smoothening Salve is truly an organic product as it is free from parabens, SLS/SLES and other genetically modified ingredients. This comes in a small and sturdy plastic tub. I love the aroma of Coorg coffee and hence the purchase. It almost looks like coconut oil and has the same texture. I scooped a little amount of product using my finger and rubbed it on my lips. The pleasant aroma of coffee took over my senses for a while but then the fragrance did not last for more than 5 minutes. It looks greasy but actually it doesn’t not have that sticky feeling at all. My lips looked like I’ve just applied coconut oil. My lips feel so soft and nourished after using this lip salve.
I like everything about this lip salve except that it requires a lot of reapplication. Being so light in nature, it doesn’t survive food and drinks. I wouldn’t really prefer lip salves during winters because I’d like something heavy that forms a layer on my lips. That’s when lip balms come to rescue as it forms a protective layer between the lips and the environment, preventing moisture loss and thus protecting it from chapping. However, people living in Southern parts of India can very well use Just Herbs Coorgi Coffee Lip Smoothening Salve because the weather is not as extreme as in North India. I always carry this lip salve in my bag because more than the good it does to my lips, the aroma of coffee perks me up instantly. 🙂
