What our experts say...
What a smart idea – almost everyone is at risk of cold sores so having a natural alternative that works is great. You don’t need to have a cold sore to like this product though. It has more staying power than many other balms. I really like that Bio-first is donating back to some of the areas they source their ingredients from.
I wish I could use this product regularly!! When you put it on your lips it has that tingly plumping lip feeling without the nasty chemicals and it keeps your lips so hydrated. It’d be interesting to see this work with cold sores if I get them in the future. It’s nice to see a natural cold sore cream on the market!
The texture and scent were good. It went on smoothly and stayed, which is what you need for sores and hot spots. My child didn’t recoil when I applied it to a dry spot on his chin, which means it doesn’t smart or smell too strong either. I couldn’t test if it calmed lip sores because I didn’t have any when trialling them but it worked well on extreme dryness on my chin. It’s fantastic that they have the Safe Cosmetics Australia and Think Dirty validations.
