Hi Darlings,

Last week while I was shopping for my mum’s birthday present I stumble upon this lip balm at the check out line and since I needed a new one, I thought I should buy it.

How is it possible that I have a hundred lip balms and I run out of all of them at the same time?

Anyway, I got the Alma K Hydrate Silky Lips Balm because is sounded really nice and new, I’ve never heard of the brand and it wasn’t really expensive.

The packaging is really simple and I’m pretty sure it didn’t come in a box, I had no information about the product other than it has 100% natural ingrediets which it’s really nice, so I went on the website and checked the infos.

It has:

  • Shea Butter
  • Borage Seed Oil
  • Evening Primrose Oil
  • Grape Seed Oil
  • Dead Sea Minerals (apparently the entire brand is made with them)

And it’s suppost to be really hydrating and soothing.


Let’s start with the packaging, I really like the applicator because it’s really easy to clean and hygenic but I never know how much I am squeezing out, so most of the times I end up having a lot coming through and it’s a bit inconvenient:


As you can see here, I’m pressing really hard and this is how much it comes out.

The formula it’s quite weird too, it seams like it has a more firm/solid component mixed with a oily one like the shea butter and the oils separetes in the packaging. So sometimes it comes out really liquidy and sometimes it’s really hard.

I guess you have to shake it before use but it doen’t say anythjng on the packaging or o the web site. (I tried, nothing changed).

The fact that is so liquidy though makes it really hard to stick to the lips, it tents to move and you feel it all over your face but then disappear in about an hour leaving the lips quite dry and thight which obviously makes it pointless to wear in the first place.


I’m not going to show it on the lips because as you can see it’s just clear gloss.

The thing that bothers me the most is the SCENT, it’s horrible! It smells like plastic and the taste in your mouth is horrible too, really bitter and plasticky, very very unpleasent to use.

I can’t find a place where you can buy it or the price online. I think I payed something around 5€.


  • Hydration: 6/10
  • Packaging: 6/10
  • Longevity: 5/10
  • Application: 5/10
  • Texture: 3/10
  • Comfort: 3/10
  • Scent: 1/10


I don’t like this lip balm AT ALL. It is hydrating but it lasts such a short amount of time that even the feeling of hydration goes away in about 15 minutes and you are back to the beginning. I like the applicator but the formula makes the squeezy tube uncomfortable to use. I don’t like the way it feels and I absolutely dislike the taste and scent. In my opinion you can skip this lip balm.

  1. Never tried this one hut you should go for applying some vaseline to your lips at night. It really helps in hydrating and prevents chap lips.

    1. I’ve never actually used Vaseline, but I’ll check it out since this was such a disappointment! Thanks for the rec x😊

  2. I was really hoping this lip balm would work because of all of its natural ingredients but well :/

    1. I had high expectation for the same reason so upset that is so bad 💔xx

  3. that’s too bad that it didn’t work out, really nice that it’s all natural ingredients. but silly that it doesn’t hydrate & I wouldn’t wanna deal with that taste or smell! thanks for the honest review.

    1. So sad! I’m super sensitive to scents but this is actually bad Ahhah I might see if the body shop has some natural option for me but with a nicer scent 😁😁 if you have any recommendations let me know 😘

      1. I’ve been really loving glossier’s lip balm balm dotcom in mint, but they have a bunch of flavors!

        1. I was looking into that and the new fresh one but they are so HARD to get here, glossier may be impossible actually 😭😭

  4. Yikes! Sorry to hear. Never used that lip balm. I used Aquaphor. It’s really, really good and not expensive at all. Good luck,

    1. Actually I’ve never heard of the brand either, you know how the check out line sucks you in, it sounded cool! But I need to check Aquaphor out, I’ve heard great things about it 😊😊

    1. I love them! I was looking for something more moisturising though, for nighttime 😴😴

  5. Good review! it’s also a bummer when you get good hydration, but the lasting factor is short!

    1. Thank you for reading it. I think you can definitely find something better 😉 xx

  6. I’m not one for makeup but this review is very good. Keep it up!

  7. I feel like I totally would have bought this so I’m glad I read your review! I hate when “hydrating” products don’t hydrate for more than 10 minutes. UGH, so disappointing.

  8. Sorry you didn’t like it, but great job on the review!

  9. This may sound weird, but I kind of love negative reviews. Makes me feel like the author is keeping it real & not just in it for the swag. Thanks for an honest one!

    1. I felt horrible after posting it, your comment totally makes me feel better! 😊💕 Obviously I want to keep it real but it’s always sad when something doesn’t work 🙁😘😘😘
