Alluring because it all natural, this keeps my lips soft and smooth under the hot summer sun & moisturized and protected from the harsh winter wind. Good stuff from the guru of skincare for men!
This product is excellent thanks to essential oils of protective and soothing Calendula Blossom, calming Rose Geranium and moisturising Ylang Ylang. It leaves lips soft and supple. The handy jar and easy application is really useful, plus Acuña is one of the coolest brands around.
TETU male magazine . Paris.
The smell of Christian Acuña’s Lip Balm will always remind me of winter in Paris. It brings back memories of a blisteringly cold trip up the Eiffel tower, late night taxis along the Seine and a bottle of champagne every night before bed. Winter may sill be a long way off, although perhaps not as long as some would like, but the need to start stocking up on your essentials for the season should be considered sooner rather then later. Dry cracked lips have a habit of sneaking up on you when you are least expecting it, and always when you don’t have something on hand to protect them with.
Our lips are under a constant barrage of drying environments, from the air-conditioned workplace to the heating of our homes, there’s not much that won’t dry them out and considering they are the one stretch of skin without sebaceous glands (the glands that produce oil), lip balm should be considered an essential item for the whole year to keep them protected.
Christian Acuña’s classic Lip Balm comes in a small inconspicuous pot, which seems more pleasing to the eye then the typical lipstick style applicator. It sits well in a bathroom cabinet amongst the usual suspects and should be considered an integral part of any morning routine. Adding a layer of its rich formulation after washing your face and shaving is always a good idea.
The lip balm’s fragrance is vaguely medicinal, but not so much so that you’ll be forever smelling hospital wards when you’re using it. It harks back to the days when formulations for the body were simple and effective, as is evident from Christian Acuña’s 4000 plus years of Knowledge from Aboriginal elders of Australia. With experience like that it is no surprise that this balm remains an essential throughout the year, no matter where you are or where you’re going.
Christian Acuña Lip Treatment is famed in Australia and has a growing reputation in the west and loved in South Korea thanks to an all-natural formula based on a fifteen year old time honoured Christian Acuña formula. It expertly soothes dry to very dry lips, is quickly absorbed and lasts, meaning you have to apply less often.
I can’t live without this product, it was recommended by a guy friend of mine…It works extremely well in all seasons, it makes my lips look great, natural & sexy and it moisturizes & protects them too. I’ve tried so many products but this lip revive is the best.
A reasonably pricey affair that offers good protection from the wind and cold weather. Soothing and hydrating emollients Squalane, Bees Wax and Sweet Almond Oil combine with Vitamins A and E. Acuña’s gets extra points for their organic cool brand.
Christian Acuña’s Lip Balm is an all natural offering made from Beeswax, Shea Butter, Almond Oil, Cocoa Butter and Lanolin. It moisturises and nourishes lips exceptionally well whilst also keeping them soft and healthy. I really like it.
G Magazine. Brazil.
Relatively unknown in Brazil (this is not a bad thing, don’t buy into brands with huge marketing budgets! Buy brands that work.) but popular because it’s actually good. Designed for lips but also applicable on dry skin anywhere on the body. With Aloe Vera, Beeswax, Seabuckthorn Berry and Rose Hip it’s a great hydrator. It could absorb a bit quicker but this ‘rich’ formula is likely to be popular by men with very dry lips. We love it here in Brazil.

Christian Acuña is a premium lip balm that offers intense moisturising benefits from vitamin E, aloe, shea butter and avocado butter. It protects lips from the sun with a natural occuring SPF 15 sunscreen. Sun Protection Factor (SPF) is a measure of how long you can stay in the sun, compared to wearing no sunscreen. An SPF of 15, for example, allows you to stay put in the sun 15 times longer without burning.

One of the more expensive options in the lip balm market but for good reason; honey, beeswax and vitamin E along with other quality organic ingredients keep lips nicely hydrated. Sun, wind and air conditioning are no match for the Christian Acuña lip balm. Extra points for it being men specific and in Christian Acuña’s signature, man-friendly packaging.
A Fan of the brand
I like it because it forms a protective barrier over the skin to prevent moisture loss. It could hydrate better as opposed to just protect but nonetheless, it expertly protects and is house in a convenient pot – possibly not so hygienic, so clean those fingers first!
