Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the Essence True Glow Ph Reacting Lip Balm.
As you might know, I’m a big fan of lip products that change with the PH, my favourite is by Dior but when I saw Essence came out with a new one I knew I had to give it a go.
You can buy it here for about 3$.
The colour in the tube is a light pink but it becomes a dark pink on the lips.
The packaging is classic for a lipstick, but not fancy at all.
The scent is sweet and pleasent.
FORMULA & APPLICATION
The formula is very creamy and it glides on really easily, it’s very thin and it doesn’t feel sticky on the lips, the finish is shiny.
It glides on the lips and it doesn’t enhance fine lines, but the shade is a bit too Barbie pink for me and I have to blend it out with my finger (or I’ll end up looking like Magda from Something About Mary).
I find it quite hydrating but it’s not the best lip balm I’ve ever tried. I wouldn’t use it at night but it’s nice for the day time.
This lip balm lasts for 2 hours on me (without eating), since it’s so shiny I wasn’t expecting an incredible lasting time, but you can reapply it really easily.

This lip balm is nice but the shade is not my thing, it’s too bright and too pink, but other than that is ok. The formula is good and so is the application. The packaging is nothing special. Overall I think you can go without this product but if you like it, you won’t be disappointed.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
