What do I think?
The By Terry "Baume de Rose" was bought for me as a birthday present from friends after I lusted after it in Space NK. I would never have bought this for myself (price tag!) so it was a fantastic gift. I am totally in love with this and have been using it every day- although as sparingly as possible as I might cry when it runs out!
Firstly- the packaging is gorgeous. It definitely looks like a luxury product!
The website states that you can use this for lips and cuticles. I prefer to use it just on my lips and any residue left on my finger is rubbed into my cuticles. It has a really moisturising feel and really does feel like its working to improve the condition of your lips. I find that with a normal balm, it is absorbed (or totally disappears) after a few minutes, however this stays present on the lips for a good hour or so.
The scent is rose (of course!) and so if you're not a fan of this scent then this might not be for you. However, it's not a granny-style strong rose scent. It's quite mild and almost sweet.
The balm applies clear to lips, although it's slightly creamy leaving a lovely finish, and it adds a great shine over a lipstick. It's especially good to use with a drying lipstick or for a colour that wants to be toned down.
Would I repurchase?
If I suddenly got a lot richer and could justify buying this then definitely! I am really enjoying using this balm and feel that it's a really special and unique product.
