Figs & Rouge had an idea - to create a balm that would be completely free from any harmful chemicals & synthetic ingredients - voila! - a 100% organic, 100% pure, 100% natural skincare product! Vitamin enriched organic essential oils, pure nourishing shea butters and nature's best organic bees wax. This is our award winning formulation made to deliver the best & most effective moisturising & natural balm for all skin types!
I was offered to try out a new product that Hip Apotheca are launching called Figs & Rouge. I've heard of these balms and as you know I'm addicted to lipbalms, of course I couldn't pass up on this opportunity!
This balm is actually a little hard to describe. You may remember that I previously reviewed Antipodes Saviour Skin Balm? Well it's not that sort of balm, it's much smaller and purse friendly but I would say it's more like Rosebud Salve but with different scents and not as oily and more on the creamy side. It's a 100% vegan multi purpose balm and it comes in a variety of scents.
At first sight, I thought the tin was so small, but don't let this fool you - when you open it, you can see that the lid is pretty large and you actually get a pretty decent quantity of product!
I decided to use Figs & Rouge only on my lips because of its texture, I don't feel it's the kind of balm that you can apply all over your body (just like the Saviour Balm). Speaking of texture, I don't think I've used anything similar before!
When you open the cap, the balm looks solid, but once you dip your finger in it, you can notice a grainy looking texture - but it's actually not grainy! It's creamy and it melts to the touch, leaving just a hint of shine to the lips as I find it's super quickly absorbed, leaving your lips smoothed and moisturized. Even though it's absorbed very fast, I didn't feel the need to reapply more product through the day - in the morning and at night was enough.
I think the tin is incredibly cute and the size is great for just throwing it in your purse or in your pocket. Of course, a tin is always less hygienic than a tube, but I think these tins are way cuter and I'll be sure to re-use them when I use them up!
Even though I only used these on my lips as of yet, the possibilities are endless when it comes to these amazing balms. Besides moisturizing lips, Figs & Rouge can be used in a multitude of ways: - Having a bad hair day? Use it to tame stubborn flyaways. - Lightly dab on dry patches around eyes, lips and nose without disturbing your make up - Moisturize dry cuticles - Mix a bit of pigment to create a sheer tinted lip balm
Figs & Rouge 100% Organic Natural Balms are available at Hip Apotheca in a variety of scents and in two different sizes: $5.60 for 8 ml / .26 oz and $7.70 for 17 ml / .60 oz.
