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!
