Frugal Find: Himalaya Herbals Lip Balm

My lips usually get extra dry at this time of the year and so when I found out I didn’t have a lip balm in my personal care stash, I immediately bought one at Watsons SM Manila. While reading and comparing labels, I decided to experiment on this brand that sounded new to me — Himalaya Herbals Lip Balm. Priced at just P59, it’s the cheapest lip balm there (along with the one under the Watsons brand that comes in fruit flavors).


This particular lip balm is a product of India and the company behind it has been in existence since 1930. It has carrot seed oil (a natural sunscreen) and wheat germ oil that’s rich in Vitamin E. The product claims to nourish, soften, and prevents chapping of lips.


I applied it on my dry lips just last night and when I woke up today, my lips looked healed and felt softer! I touched my lips with my forefinger, too, just to confirm (still soft).


It’s just a little tube with 10g of balm. But I liked that only a small amount of it is needed to cover my entire lips. If I’d use it daily, I calculate that it will last me for a month. Not bad for its cheap price. 🙂

  1. Ang lakas maka dry ng skin talaga ang weather, kung hindi mainit e malamig naman. it’s nice mura lang yung nabili mong lip balm at base on your experience very effective naman.

    Di din ako mahilig maglagay ng lip balm kaya siguro madalas ng ddry yung lips ko.

    1. Lipstick lang kasi ako sa opis kaya ng biglang magrainy season na, dahil malamig nga, nagstart magdry na naman ang lips ko. Tinry ko lang to and so far, okay naman effective. Hehe. 🙂

  2. Oh interesting! I’m intrigued! I’ve seen that brand na pero di ko alam may lip balm din sila. Hahanapin ko rin yan. Thanks for sharing! 😀

  3. I’m using burt’s bees. Sya lang nakasundo ko. Usually kasi lalong nagda-dry ang lips ko pag naglilipbalm. Mukhang tanga lang. Hihihihi. Probably because I love wearing lipsticks. I should try this one.

    1. Lip wax ba yung burt’s bees? Hehe, sensya walang alam! Ako rin hindi nagli-lip balm pag hindi naman cold/rainy season. Pag malamig kasi ang lakas maka-dry ng skin at lips. 🙂

  4. My problem with lip balm… nagbubuo buo siya sa lips ko. Looks like laway na natuyo lang haha I tried other Himalaya products particularly the Facial Wash and Moisturiser. Ang di ko lang sure eh kung effective talaga. Na attract lang kasi ako with the fact na nature nature siya haha

    1. Ay relate ako dyan sa “looks like laway na natuyo lang” hahaha. Ang gawa ko hugas muna lips tapos apply ulit. Pinagagaling ko lang kasi yung super dry at chapped lips ko. Actually, naglilip balm lang ako pag talagang dry season ang lips ko. Eto nga kapag ganitong malamig ang panahon (-ber months). Oo, lakas nga maka-attract ng nature nature nila haha. 🙂

    2. Scrub mo muna ng brown sugar, or even white sugar, para ma-exfoliate.

      Ita-try ko ang lip balm na eto. I wanted to try their other products, seems super-affordable naman.

      1. Thanks for the tip! Ita-try ko yan next time na magdry ng todo. Sa ngayon, okay na ang lips ko smooth na ulit. Haha. Ewan if dahil sa lip balm pero mukhang nakatulong sya kasi nagstop muna ako maglipstick din ng ilang days tapos ayun bumalik na normal condition ng lips ko. 🙂
