Maybelline teamed up with Dr. Rescue to create a line of medicated lip balms to hydrate the lips while providing relief of pain associated with fever blisters and cold sores.
I’ve been searching for these for about a month now. One day I had to go to Rite Aid to check out new beauty products get a pack of toilet paper, and there they were. They were mixed in with the Electro balms, nevertheless they were there.
Baby Lips Dr. Rescue are in the same type of packaging as regular Baby Lips, just a different design. This balm is also the same size (4.4g) as the original Baby Lips.
I am not a frequent flyer in the cold sore category, so of course I cannot say whether it does or does not work on cold sores. I get a nice tint from the balm, nice natural shine, and my lips are deeply hydrated. This balm is just a tad heavier than the original formula, but I blame the menthol.
I personally love Baby Lips and this line of balms is no exception. I see this becoming a staple in every woman’s handbag over the fall and winter months. Menthol as you may or may not know is a great component to add to a balm because it is able to quickly penetrate the skin on the lips carrying other essential chemicals with it. This means quick pain relief if you have cold sores and/or instant long term hydration.
I picked up Pink me up and Just peachy. Pink me up is a sheer pink and Just peachy is a creamy pinky peach color. I don’t like the way Just peachy settles in the lines of my lips. Pink me up is perfect.
Baby Lips Dr. Rescue retails for $3.99. I found mine at Rite Aid, and just saw a stand pop up in Walgreens. You can also check Target, Walgreens and any other mass merchant retailer
