Lip and Multifunction Balm Review : My Oriflame Tender Care Collection

Hello,Sunshine^^
It's been a while I have not posted anything. Now I'm gonna share about the legendary best seller from Oriflame. It's Tender Care. I'm sure u already hear many raves about it. I'm just gonna add one more personal opinion^^

I took the pic from oriflame site

Actually, I owned these products about a year ago. The photos sat at long time in my draft, waiting to be posted. But I always got distracted to post other products, he he... I know I'm pretty random at this.

Tender Care Lip Balm Stick Version
I've used half of the product when I took the picture.
What I own are :

1. Tender Care Lip Balm Stick

2. Tender Care Protecting Balm

3. Tender Care Vanilla Protecting Balm

I'll explain one by one.

1. Tender Care Lip Balm Stick
U can read the product info on the official web.

Oriflame logo at the top of the cap

The plastic packaging is quite simple. 
It has the same pink color like the cream version.

The product info label on the bottom of the package.


The stick has colorless finish. 
The scent is pretty much similar as Tender Care Cream but not as strong as it.

(I found the product info from indonesian oriflame website, for foreign readers please hit the translate button)

Temukan semua keuntungan dari Tender Care yang melegenda dalam lip balm yang kaya nutrisi. Formula yang khusus melembutkan dan melindungi mengandung beeswax, minyak zaitun dan minyak Echium untuk bibir yang lembut dan halus. 4 gr.

Ingredients list :
OCTYLDODECANOL, RICINUS COMMUNIS SEED OIL, PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRACAPRYLATE/TETRACAPRATE, POLYETHYLENE, PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRAISOSTEARATE, ISOPROPYL LANOLATE, BIS-DIGLYCERYL POLYACYLADIPATE-1, ISODECYL NEOPENTANOATE, CANDELILLA CERA, CERA MICROCRISTALLINA, CERA CARNAUBA, SYNTHETIC WAX, PARAFFIN, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, ETHYLENE BRASSYLATE, OLEA EUROPAEA OIL, CERA ALBA, ECHIUM PLANTAGINEUM SEED OIL, PROPYLPARABEN, BHT, TOCOPHEROL.


I bought this lip balm for around IDR 75k, I forgot the exact price. It's colorless when swatched on lips.

This lip balm is moisturizing. Enough for giving hydration/ moisture to medium dry lips. It was felt thick on lips and waxy. Too much applying it may give oil shine on ur lips (like u just eat some fried food). So I had to measure my swipe when I applied it, so I would not apply it too much.

But I was experienced very bad dry chopped lips back then.
Since I found it not enough to heal my cracked and flaky lips and I was not a fan of its texture, so I only used half of the bullet. And then I gave it to my neighbor.

I prefer skinfood lip care bar apricot more than this in term of texture and moisture. The Skinfood lip care bar could help to heal my cracked flaky lips and felt light on lips, and did not leave thick and oily/ waxy feeling compared to this product.

What I like :
- moisturizing
- good for them who look for colorless lipbalm
- the cap is tight enough, won't easily accidentally opened
- contains natural ingredients
- no artificial color, non perfumed
- easy to carry

- non alcohol (based on the ingredients list)



What I don't like :
- Not enough to heal my troubled (flaky, chopped, dry, darkened) lips back then
- the texture is rather thick/ waxy/ 'oily' (I prefer lightweight textured and 'non-oily look' lipbalm)

- U must look for Oriflame seller to buy it



2. Tender Care Protecting Balm Cream (Jar)
Link : http://id.oriflame.com/products/product-detail.jhtml?prodCode=1276

Krim dengan formula khusus untuk mengurangi kekeringan dan mengembalikan kehalusan dan kelembutan kulit. 15 ml.

Ingredients list :
PETROLATUM, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, PARAFFINUM LIQUIDUM, CERA ALBA, PARAFFIN, ACETYLATED LANOLIN, CETYL ALCOHOL, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, PROPYLPARABEN.


To be honest, I don't like the smell. It is non-perfumed, that's good. Guess, this just the consequence of being non- fragrance product.


I like this multi- function balm. I used it for :
- lip balm
- hand and cuticules cream (sometimes when my hand got extremely dry)
- relieve my cracked heels
- smoothen my knees and ankles

This is the original Tender Care product, and it's very useful. The cream is in thick consistency just like balm texture. I used most if it for body rather than lips coz I have my own fave lip balm.
It felt little sticky and oily, so don't play in the sand right after u use it. Coz some sand may attach to the part where u apply it onto. He he..
I like it, quite useful product. Give it some time until it get absorbed.

I only knew several ways of using it, I've written it down above.
Do u know what else it is for? tell me, please.

What I like :
- moisturizing
- good for them who look for colorless lipbalm
- the cap is tight enough, won't easily accidentally opened
- contains natural ingredients

- no artificial color, non perfumed

- cute container

- does what it claims

- multi function



What I don't like :
- Non enough to heal my troubled (flaky, chopped, dry, darkened) lips back then
- the texture is rather thick, waxy and 'oily' if u use it as lipbalm

- U must look for Oriflame seller to buy it

- I have to dip my finger to get it (they don't provide spatula)
- felt sticky, waxy/ oily after application, need some time to settle down

3. Tender Care Vanilla (Jar Limited Edition)

Picture taken from Oriflame official website

This is the bottom of the jar, contain product info.

I found about product info in HERE

All of the benefits of legendary Tender Care, with a delicious vanilla fragrance. A softening and protecting formula for lips, face, cuticles or any area that is dry and rough.

Ingredients list :
PETROLATUM, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, PARAFFINUM LIQUIDUM, CERA ALBA, PARAFFIN, ACETYLATED LANOLIN, CETYL ALCOHOL, PARFUM, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, PROPYLPARABEN.

This is the limited edition, in vanilla flavour. It has oh soo nice alluring sweet vanilla scent. Note that the vanilla is only on the smell, not the taste. So please don't lick it, although the yummy scent probably makes someone who doesn't know what it is, thinking that it's edible, he he... :)

The color is different from original tender care protecting balm, it has lighter color. The texture is the same. I heard they ever released another limited editions, those are chocolate and tender care caramel. Wonder why Oriflame just don't make them available as regular (in stock) product. I'm sure many people will love those delicious vanilla and chocolate aroma.

Repurchase? I may repurchase the jar version since it's multipurpose balm, but not for the stick one because I have other preference for lipbalm. The vanilla one is the most I like from those three.

Do u a fan of Oriflame Tender Care in too? What usually u use tender care protecting balm for?
