Maybelline Baby Dr Rescue Lip Balms Hit the UK

Maybelline Baby Dr Rescue Lip Balms UK

I'm not the biggest fan of Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balms and have openly stated so a good few times. Yes they are pretty eye catching in their bright packaging glory, yes the fruity scents do make them some what appealing but when you really get down to it, the balm itself is mediocre. It doesn't heal the lips, nor is it all that moisturising and since the Baby Lips Balms cost more than Carmex or Blistex - it is pretty easy to see why I don't have one in every pocket. However Maybelline Baby Lips Dr Rescue Lip Balms are something else and the good news is that they have hit the UK and are now available via Superdrug! Can I get a hallelujah?

"Baby Lips Dr. Rescue Medicated Lip Balm provides care that soothes sore lips, with a hit of eucalyptus, and combats dryness. Available in natural tints to even out lip tone for healthier-looking lips. In 1 minute, lips feel soothed. In 1 day, lips look less dry. In 1 week, lips are reborn."

In a nutshell the above blurb is true - well the lips being reborn is a little far fetched but hey that is the cosmetic industry for you! The Maybelline Baby Lips Dr Rescue Lip Balms are medicated so they heal and soothe chapped lips - on the lips they create a mild tingling sensation, a lot like Carmex lip balm but with a much lighter texture which is altogether cooling. The lighter formula glides on to the lips with such ease, making a great base for any other lip product you may want to apply on top. From the first use my lips did feel better - by that I mean less flaky and dare I say it hydrated. The scent of all the Maybelline Baby Lips Dr Rescue Lip Balms is eucalyptus based, I rather like it but if you aren't so keen I wouldn't worry too much as the fragrance doesn't linger around for any length of time.

The Maybelline Baby Lips Dr Rescue Lip Balms come in various tints as well an un- tinted version: Too Cool which is my personal favourite. I also Coral Crave, which is intended to deposit a light peachy pink tint to the lips. It doesn't. My sister purchased the entire line up and the only one that you can really see on the lips in terms of a tint is Soothing Sorbet and neither of us have overly pigmented lips, it is the only downside of this lip balm range. If you are looking for a pigmented tinted lip balms the Dr Rescue Lip Balms won't be for you but if you do want a budget, medicated lip balm that works you could do a lot worse! I am surprised there has been no advert campaigns or buzz about this range hitting the UK, given how hyped up the original Maybelline Baby Lips line was!

  1. I also prefer the Dr Rescue ones to the original. I always have one in my purse!


  2. I wasn't a big fan of the original baby lips but I've heard so many people, including you, say they prefer this one! Might have to give it a try, considering how cheap it is! x

  3. I brought Too Cool home with me from the US in October and it has been my go-to lip balm ever since! So glad to hear that they are available here now as I'm definitely looking forward to trying some of the other shades. :)

  4. I've never actually tried any of the Baby Lips yet, they sounds really good though, especially this one!x


  5. I have been umming and ahhing about buying this for ages. Quite a few reviews said it was an okay-ish dupe for Chanel's balm! Obviously I doubt there's much similarity seeing as there's such a large price gap, but I will give this a go! Thanks for the review! Katie xx

  7. Hopefully I can find these in Australia! I think these would be a lifesaver for those winter months. I always get such chapped lips and nothing sucks more than applying lipstick to chapped lips haha x

  8. I'll have to give these a try! I was also not a fan of the original version, but these sounds loads better, and I do love the scent of eucalyptus!

  9. I have never tried them before, but I do like the sound of them! I am not a fan when lip balm tints my lips so all is good there! Can't wait to have a go xx
