The Skin Food Shea Butter Lip Care Bar is a lip balm enriched which main ingredients is Shea Butter. There are 5 variants of this product; Apricot, Watermelon, Raspberry, Mint (for Men) and Milk (for Baby). The one I'll be reviewing is Watermelon. I'll also compare it with my old one, Apricot (which I used up until the very last of its product).
The Skin Food Shea Butter Lip Care Bar in "Watermelon"
Let's start from its packaging. The tube is actually just like any other lip balm. Simple. But I actually find the paper label is kinda off. My experience with the Apricot, the label would likely get dirty, and really shabby. Totally gross :( The cap isn't too tight either. When I brought it in my bag, I often found it without its cap. The cap is off and hiding somewhere in the bag -____- Really unhygienic since the product would likely to make contact with other stuffs in bag. Well, I do hope the Watermelon one wouldn't be like that.. ><
About the product itself, it's really working! Well, if it didn't work properly, I wouldn't like to repurchase it, would I? ;D
Just like I've told you above, I've tried a lot of lip care products, but this is the only product that works on me. I do have a Lip Smacker, but it still tend to dry my lips, even if I apply it alone, without lip colors. I've never experienced dryness with Skin Food. ><
Although there are so many variants, they're pretty much the same. Both the Apricot and Watermelon shared the same, weirdy scent. I don't really know what scent is it, I assumed it is a smell of shea butter. They, however, have a slight tint of color on lips. The Watermelon, for example, is dark pink on the tube, but has a slight cool pink shade on lips. I found it really great, since it brightens my usually darker lips. However, the color won't differ your lipstick/tint/gloss real color. A nice thing. :D

As you can see on the swatch, my lips were very dry and chapped, however, after being there for a while, the chapped are moisten and dryness were gone. My lips looked pinker there too.. :D Sweet!
