Review: Omorovicza Perfecting Lip Balm

I purchased the Omorovicza Perfecting Lip Balm (£32 for 10ml) as part of an impulse internet bargain buy (details here) and am embarassed to admit, it's been four months now and I haven't ventured to try it. Until today.....
But, before I get to my opinion, here are the details on the product:
'Revive and nourish dry lips...with shea butter, eucalyptus and hyaluronic spheres, this gently tingling balm leaves lips fuller, softer and smoother.'
A spot of research into hyaluronic acid sourced here clearly shows why this ingredient is a feature of the balm:
'hyaluronic acid and collagen give the structure and plumpness to the lips.... keeping the skin nourished and healthy. The result is healthy well hydrated and plump lips that are well protected from the environment.'

Coupled with the warming, soothing and healing properties of eucalyptus it's pretty exciting stuff.
Today's been the perfect day to try out the balm. It's sunny but still bitterly cold and me and the OH have decided to head out for a long walk in a local park.
The balm is a lovely, neutral shade - you can see the effect of the light reflecting spheres as soon as you open the tub. Applying just a small amount is enough (well, at £32 a pop, you definitely want this tub to last right?!) You also get a faint whiff of the eucalyptus too.
Here are a couple of pics of my lips pre application:
I've deliberately not enhanced the pics in any way to hopefully help you to see the difference after application. Looking a little tired and dry right?
And, here are a few pics after:
Looking a lot more healthy and shiny!
I have to say, I love this lip balm. It's not tacky or sticky and the slight tingling sensation kinda makes you know your lips are there (if you know what I mean). It also fills in any visible cracks and smooths over dry patches, giving your mouth a much more appealing pucker!
Being a self-confessed lip-licker the minute I apply a product, a nice flavour is a must in any lip balm - the eucalyptus not only gives a little plumping boost, but tastes gorgeous too.
So, a great product and one I'm going to continue to reach for - albeit sparingly - at least until I can grab another great deal
Have you tried this lip balm or anything else from Omorovicza?
What are your favourites?
PS, If anyone is debating registering for either this, or any of the other Omorovicza products (I'd love to try them all!) please use my linkie.... I'd really appreciate it.
Much love,

    1. I know, only bought it as the offer was too good to pass up - a little bit of luxury in my make up bag now ;-)
