Pai Bergamot orange organic lip balm

Product description: organic lip care

Presentation: light pot
Texture: balm (even yellow color)
Price: £7 for 50g

My opinion

Because the epidermis of the lips are at least 5 times thinner than the rest of the visage, lips really require a special care.

The bergamot orange organic balm from Pai Skincare is made up of a delicate mixture of organic soothing plant butters and oils. Infused with a gentle note of bergamot orange, the ingredient list is quite minimal but extremely high quality.

The smell of this lovely balm is absolutely divine, feminine and slightly uplifting. I have to say that I was nicely suprised as I always tend to be a bit cautious and reluctant when it comes to essential oils as the smell can be sometimes overpowering.

Ideal to use as a moisturising overnight treatment or anytime during the day as a lip rescue balm, this super and handy organic balm really leaves the lips repaired, soft, and hydrated....a real pamper treat !

The only downside is that I would have preferred the texture to be slighlty more consistant. However, in terms of results, I have tried many natural lip balms, and this is by far my favorite!

Shea butter: listed as one of the best ingredient for the epidermis, it leaves skin repaired and supple and has very interesting anti-inflammatories properties. It is very rich in polyphenols, powerful anti-oxidants.

Cocoa butter: rich in polyphenols and squalene, this anti-oxidant-rich component makes your lips nourished and supple. It also stands as a good base for balm.

Beeswax: commonly used in balm as a texture agent, beeswax is very protective and acts as a nice barrier against dehydration.

Castor oil: containing a high percentage of fatty acids such as ricinoleic acid, this oil is a beauty delight for the epidermis. It leaves lips, healed, regenerated and soft.

  1. This sounds nice does it come in any other scents as I am allergic to Orange?

  2. Hello Sugarpuffish,

    Thanks for reading my post.The Bergamot orange essential oil present in the balm is extracted from the zests of Sicilian yellow fruits (which look like orange) Citrus Bergamia. The word "Orange" is only used because the size of the sicilian fruits and orange are alike.
    The natural constituants of Bergamot essential oil (and allergens) present in the balm are listed in the product composition and are:d-limonene and linalool.
    Pai only sells this lip balm and it doesnt come any under fragances. If you have more specific questions regarding allergie, please, do not hesitate to contact them via their website: they have an excellent customer service and will be very willing to help you.
    Hope that helps :-)
