If you can remember back to my review of the original Baby Lips back in 2011 & even some of my limited edition Maybelline Baby Lips posts then you’d know I am a big fan. I like the feel, the tint, & even the scent on the originals. Maybelline has brought us something new though- the Maybelline Baby Lips Dr. Rescue Medicated Balms. I picked up 3 shades & have my final thoughts all ready for you. Keep reading to see what I thought + lip swatches!
Here’s what Maybelline says-
No more basic lip balm. Medicated care + 12 HR hydration. Soothes quickly with a hint of eucalyptus. Cools sore lips with a touch of icy menthol. In 6 new natural tints to even out lip tone for healthier-looking lips.
Medicated care soothes sore lips and combats dryness
In 6 New natural tints
In 1 minute, lips feel soothed.*
In 1 day, lips look more smooth.*
In 1 week, lips are renewed*
*Based on panelists’ self-evaluation
Apply in the center of your upper lip to the outer edges, following the contours of your mouth. Then glide across the entire bottom lip. Can be worn under lip color
I don’t find these to be truly healing because they don’t even last on the lips. To be more soothing I’d have to apply a crazy amount which just wouldn’t look right & would feel greasy. Not a match for me unfortunately. I’m having a hard time admitting that because all of the other Maybelline Baby Lips have been so well-loved in my collection. These are the first I wish I had passed on if only for the texture.
Have you tried any of the Maybelline Dr. Rescue Medicated Baby Lips? Interested or are you passing?
