Hola beauties!! 😀
How have you all been? 🙂 How is your week coming along? This week was a horrid one. You ask why? Peshawar attack has literally shook me. How traumatizing! I can’t believe people can get this ruthless in the name of religion. Killing innocent souls who are future leaders?? That is what you call “being brave” ? If you are doing this “in the name of Allah”, you don’t even know the meaning behind that name then. All we can do is pray for those innocent souls and their parents to give them the strength to get through this. 🙁 It pains for me to think how a child would have been pleading his mum that he did not want to go to school that day and his mum would have forced him and sent him to school. And what would be going through her mind when she realized her son/daughter never returned home alive. 🙁
Having said that, today, I am introducing you to a new product in the market. BioBloom! With all that natural, organic tagline they have, I instantly ordered a few stuff on their website!!

My take on BioBloom Strawberry Lip Balm
With the tagline “Beautiful….Naturally”, BioBloom did its debut recently. Like how we have high expectations from every new brand, I had it too.
Packaging: This lip balm comes in a cute little transparent pot with a black twist-to-open cap. It is travel friendly and quite handy but I was a little disappointed with the sticker on top of the cap and below the pot.There are possibilities of it coming off very soon and can look ugly. 🙁 Otherwise, I like it on the whole.
Texture: It is a little sticky because of the bee wax in it. The consistency is thick and has a light fragrance of strawberry mixed with bee wax. When applied to the lips it is quite sheen. It stays well on the lips for 2-2.5 hours. I have used this lip balm for a few days now and it provides moisture to a good extent. My lips feel soft and supple. It gives a slight glossy finish to the lips.
Pros of BioBloom Strawberry Lip Balm:
• Claims to be made of 95% natural ingredients which is a plus.
• Does not contain parabens, sulphates and petrochemicals.
• Packaging is sturdy and travel friendly.
• Presence of Aloe Vera gel which helps to destroy dead skin cells.
• Presence of natural bee wax which locks in moisture.
• Presence of carrot seed oil which has anti-aging properties.
• Pocket friendly too 😛
Cons of BioBloom Strawberry Lip Balm:
• It comes in a jar, so applying it with fingers every time is quite unhygienic.
• No SPF and doesn’t protect from depigmentation.
• Needs to be applied every 2 hours, staying power is average.
• Not tinted so would be a bummer for those who love tinted lip balms.
The Jeromy Diaries Verdict
I like the fact that it is natural but I would have second thoughts on buying this again. I already have 2 lip balms from this range and they would last me a very long time. I personally prefer my Maybelline Baby lips any day!. But I would use these only because it is natural 🙂
I would recommend this to ladies who love non tinted lip balms. It’s natural and worth a try 🙂
On our TJD score card,
|A+||Excellent, MUST buy!|
|A||Very good, worth a try|
|C+||Go on, take a risk|
|F||EPIC fail! Stay away!|
BioBloom Strawberry Lip Balm scores Grade B+
I bought two other products from BioBloom which I will be reviewing soon. Here’s a sneak peek as to what the products are 🙂
Until next time,
Take Care. ♥
