Lip balms are a must have item for me. I have a few lip balms stashed everywhere in my house, my purse, my room, you name the place and I will have a lip balm nearby. The reason is simple, I have very dry lips and hence I’m obsessed with Lip Balms. My obsession has led me to try more than a few dozen lip balms over the years and honestly very few have impressed me much. Since most of them don’t keep my lips moisturised for more than a few hours. Though, I was lucky enough to stumble upon one that ended all my complaints. 2NDesign First Lip Balm Restore & Soothing is a tiny jar of love in pretty pink packaging.

My Experience: When I first used it, I wasn’t expecting very much from it, to be honest. My lips which are perpetually dry like a desert are very hard to impress. So, I started using it and within a few days, I knew I had stumbled upon something amazing! Let’s talk about its packaging first. It’s a very beautiful and sturdy tub with a matte baby pink cap and has the number 2 printed on it in gloss. I love its colour, I’m so happy that I got the pink variant because it’s my favourite colour. It comes in three different variants. The cap colour of each variant is different, Apart from that I don’t think there is much difference. It also comes in Black and White and they are equally gorgeous. I usually prefer my lip balm in a tube since they are more convenient to carry and apply plus more hygienic. But I’m glad this one comes in a tub since I get such a huge quantity at a very good price.
It is a very very moisturising lip balm. I’m saying that because I noticed that after this lip balm my lips stay moisturised for a very long time. It applies like a gloss and it looks so beautiful that you really don’t need to apply anything else. It improved the texture of my lips as well over time. My lips are now definitely more soft and smooth than before. I apply a generous amount of it during the night and I wake up with soft, smooth, moisturised lips that stay like that even if I don’t apply anything in the morning. Which by the way I had to do prior to this lip balm, otherwise my lips would start cracking up within minutes. Yes, they are that dry and that’s why I’m so impressed with this lip balm.
I currently have around 10-12 lip balms open that I used to use in rotation, since I get bored with them easily but after this, I find it hard to go back to using any other since I have to keep reapplying them every few hours and this one allows me to even forget the need to apply one for hours on end. It has no artificial fragrance or colour. It’s transparent and goes glossy on lips which works well for me. Since I now just go out in this lip balm and nothing else. It doesn’t feel heavy on the lips at all and forms a protective barrier on the lips. Which keeps them soft and smooth
It can be used as a base under the lipstick as well. Though I prefer applying it a few mins prior to the application of the lipstick and then gently wipe it off. That makes my lips soft, moisturised and prepped for the application of the lip balm at the same time ensures that my lipstick doesn’t get runny. Since this is a glossy lip balm there’s a chance of it making the lipstick runny. It does act as a good primer though and helps in keeping the lips moisturized even with matte lipsticks. I have almost finished more than half the tub as you can clearly see because I can’t get enough of this lip balm.
- It’s highly moisturising
- It absorbs easily
- Makes the lips soft
- Has no artificial fragrance or colour
- Dermatologically Hypoallergenic tested
- Free from 20 harmful substances
- People might find the tub packaging unhygienic. At times even I don’t know what to do with the lip balm left on my finger after I have applied it. So, I started applying that on my elbows and that has made a huge difference.
Will I Repurchase: I will until I find something better than this, which I doubt I will. It’s almost as good as Laneige Lip mask, if not better.
Do I Recommend: Yes, go give this a try. Since its way cheaper than Laneige and might I say better than it.
Overall summary: 2NDesign First Lip Balm Restore & Soothing is my current love. It’s a beautiful pink pot of love that will take care of all you lip woes so silently, you will forget you even have something on. It repairs, softens, smoothens, and moisturises your lips effortlessly.
