Review: Weleda Everon Lip Balm

Weleda Everon

Weleda Everon Lip Balm

This year I imposed myself the rule of using only one lipbalm at a time, rather than buying and keeping one in my handbag, one in the bathroom, one in my bedside table, as I used to do… nevertheless, Weleda’s Everon Lip Balm almost made me break my rule and go get another one ASAP, without using it up first.

I haven’t done it because I want to finish this product, and recycle the container so that at least a part the sacrifice isn’t made in vain, and I know that if I buy another lipbalm, this one will simply be pushed aside and forgotten, serving no earthly purpose to anyone…

I bought this balm to replace my all-time favorite, Benecos Bio Lippenbalsam, which was out of stock when I went looking for it, and since I needed lipbalm I settled for this one, which at first sight had quite the seductive ingredient list: jojoba, shea, bee and vegetable waxes, vanilla… mmm. Till now, I don’t think I ever found a vanilla lipbalm I didn’t like.

Ingredients: Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, beeswax (cera alba), Butyrospermium parkii (shea) butter, Euphorbia cerifera (candelilla) wax, Rosa damascena flower wax, Copernicia cerifera (carnauba) wax, Vanilla planifolia fruit extract, Rosa damascena extract, citronellol, benzyl alcohol, geraniol, citral, eugenol, farnesol. See analysis in CosDNA.

Despite all these sweet initial promises from a distance, upon trying it was mutual antipathy from the start, although my opinion (and this lipbalm) has softened somewhat after a period of regular use. I still don’t care much for it, though we made peace around the summer.

It still has this all this left… why haven’t you joined the choir invisible already? I don’t love you and you don’t love me… what’s keeping you in the realm of the living?

The reasons? It’s hard, very waxy and thus rather difficult to spread, so that I have to drag it on my lips; I must say, doing so does leave my lips with a nice natural reddish tone, so there is that; besides, it does stay on the lips for a fairly long period of time, even after eating or drinking. On the other hand, it just doesn’t feel as nourishing and hydrating as other balms I’ve used, and I find this rosey-vanilla scent sort of annoying.

In warmer weather this balm becomes a bit more tractable, but if it insists on surviving now that the cold weather is here to stay, abandonment will be inevitable. Oh, this thing is interminable like a bad relationship, or a conversation with that garrulous, gossipy, silly older aunt who buttonholes everyone with her personal problems: I’ve been applying it daily twice or thrice a day for months and it still has product left. Never again.

So, my rating for this product is 3 points.

1 point: No! Never again, not even if you gave it to me. Not even if you paid me to wear it.
2 points: I didn’t finish the trial period and it’s very unlikely I’d buy this again. It might work for you, but it does nothing for me.
3 points: Meh. I’ll use up my jar/tube, but I doubt I’d buy again. It might work for you, but it doesn’t do much for me.
4 points: I like it. It’s nice and does its job. I might buy this again, if I find nothing I like better.
5 points: I love it! It does its job very well, I find it a pleasure to use, and it’s earned its place in my beauty routine.
