Himalaya Herbals Natural Moisturising Lip Butter - Review

It Claims: A unique and luxurious blend of exotic butters that provides nourishing care, keeping your lips supple, smooth and healthy all day long.

Ingredients Include:

Himalaya Herbals Natural Moisturizing Lip Butter
  • Cocoa butter contains Vitamin E that soothes and hydrates, preventing your lips from moisture loss.
  • Sal butter moisturizes and softens lips.
  • Kokum butter helps prevent lips from chapping.
  • Mango butter rejuvenates the skin and helps minimize lip wrinkles.

Ingredients: Castor seed oil, coconut oil, beeswax, hydrogenated castor oil, flavor, cocoa seed butter, tocopherol, kokum seed butter, mango seed butter, sal butter

Use Directions:

Apply evenly and liberally on your lips, as often as needed.

Price: Rs. 125 for 10 gm tub

What I liked: 
1. It is petroleum, silicon, artificial colors & preservative free! (so they claim)

2. The ingredient list - it reads just awesome - full of natural butters & oils

3. It smells really nice - christmasy & wintery. It has a chocolate smell, but it isn't that nauseating, fake one. This one is mellow & soothing. 

4. It really works! It soothes the lips & really softens them over time.

5. Priced decently and readily available at most stores. It is also packaged well in a blister pack ensuring that one always gets an unopened, untouched tub. 

What could be better: 
1. While the texture is smooth, it does feel a bit heavy on the lips. I wouldn't wear this during the day, or under lipsticks.

2. It tends to leave a whitish / grey cast on the lips

3. It doesn't really heal chapped lips. It does reduce them by 50%, but they won't go away completely. Plus this takes a few days to really heal the lips. Don't expect instant results. 

4. Tub packaging. While I'm okay with tub packs for creams, for lip balms I do prefer tubes. Also while I like the inner white rim, I don't like the plastic tub - it just feels tacky. 

Repurchase: Yes, I use this at night & it has really helped my lips. More than that even hubby likes it & says this is his favourite lip balm to use, so I see this being a permanent fixture in the house. 


  1. Himalaya products are good more often than not.I like that it is petroleum and silicon free.I will give this a try!

    1. Yes, some Himalaya prdts are very good :).. Even I bought it coz it was touted as all natural & it is not as expensive as Lush :)

  2. Great review Tanveer. My Lotus Chap stick is just not finishing since ages. :)

    1. I use lip balms every 3-4 hours, just to finish them :)

    2. i am also thinking of doing the same! they never finish for me

  3. grt product... love himaliya products

  4. I actually like Himalaya's tube lip balm much better, I feel like it really works as soon as you put it on. :)

    1. That one is packaged better than this, although I didn't like it as much.. Good that it is working well for you ;)

    1. LOL! My hubby's too! :D.. I like it for the night. :)

  6. hi tanveer, i have used this lip balm.. it is really good and hydrating,, though tub balms is a bit messy.. coz hav to dip in ur finger everytime.. however, product is really good.

  7. hate lipbalms in tubs..n withish cast on lips is just so yucky

  8. ive never tried himalaya lip balms...but i probably wont try this just coz of the white/grey it is my lips r so chapped.. :(

  9. Sounds like a lovely lip balm <3
    i think its cute your hubby loves it too lol, must be the chocolate!

  10. sounds like an awesome product, but i hear you on the tub packaging - too much germ spread!

  11. I would have loved it but The main drawback for me is that it is clear. I just cant live without my tints :(

  12. Hey nice reviews I wanna try this product. Because it's intensely moisturizing, Astral is also ideal for very dry skin.
