Elianto SunScreen Lip Balm SPF 30

Elianto is a Malaysian company (not Korean, which some people think) with presence in some Asian & Middle Eastern countries.

When it comes to cosmetics, I'm hesitant with unknown brands and go for products that have less chances of irritating my skin.  In this case, I decided to try a few of their lip products and their SunScreen Lip Balm was the first one I opened.  The shade I picked was Raspberry.

I particularly like using this product as a base for my lipstick.  First, I love the fact that this lip balm provides sun protection.  The consistency is waxy (not sticky) which made my lips feel smooth and allowed me to apply lipstick easily. 

On it's own, I like how it enhances the color of my lips without any shine.  For people who don't like flavored lip products, this has a very subtle flavor.  You'll hardly notice it.  What I don't like is that it's not moisturizing at all.  After half an hour, my lips began to feel dry and I needed to re-apply.  But if you have lipstick on top, that shouldn't be a problem.

Will you like it or not?  It depends - do you like using Chapstick?  Because it's pretty much what it is.

  1. I hate drying lip balms because I feel like they've defeated their own purpose. :)) But yeah, it's not so much of a bother when you put lipstick or something else on top :)


Thanks for giving my blog some love ♥
