Alima Pure Organic Nourishing Lip Balm Review

Hi. My name's Nicole and I'm a balmaholic *puts head down in shame*.  I purchased a lip balm.  I couldn't resist!  In all fairness, if I hadn't added this to my cart then I would have had to pay $10 for shipping.  It's like I got it for free really.  Stop judging me!  I purchased this from Fresh Faced when I picked up a couple of other things. 

Description: Treat your lips to a little taste of heaven with Alima Pure's Organic Nourishing Lipbalm. Filled with soothing antioxidants, rich pigments, and organic plant oils and butters, our lovely organic lipbalms keep you covered. Lightly scented with a touch of organic peppermint oil.

I believe this comes in 9 shades and 1 of those is clear, but I got mango which is supposed to be a shimmering coral pink.  The first thing that I noticed is that it doesn't look like a coral pink in the tube.  I, of course, put it on as soon as I got it and noticed that the taste is weird.  It is minty but has a weird stale peanut taste to it as well.  I don't know if I'm crazy or if mine is a bad batch but I swear it's very obvious! I'm still going to use it though.  I like how smooth and creamy it glides on and and the packaging is super cute. The colour looks great on my hand but I don't love it on my lips.  Maybe it's all the shimmer.  I usually mix it with a pink gloss and it looks better, however, I bought it to be a tinted balm that would look great alone.  Aside from the colour disappointment, I will be repurchasing in other colours.  That's 2 for 2 on my Alima Pure purchases.  Now, if only I could find a seller of the foundation (Warm 2) that has reasonable shipping....

Have you tried any of Alima's balms?  What colour is your favourite?

  1. Love the way you write, very funny! I've not heard of this brand before, but I'm a sucker for a tinted lip balm :) x

    1. Thank you :). You've never heard of Alima Pure!? They may not be available outside of Canada/USA. Tinted lip balms are aahh-mazing! xo
