Revolution launched the Revolution Pro Renew Lip Conditioner at the end of April, and I knew I had to buy it as soon as I saw it, as it looked like a potential dupe for a super luxe lip treatment. If you’d like to find out more, keep on reading….
“The Revolution Pro Renew Lip Conditioner is an all-in-one lip conditioner to help soften and nourish your lips, day and night.
Formulated with a complex of Vitamin E, Castor Seed Oil, Shea Butter and Avocado Oil; your lips will stay soft, moisturised, and prepped for colour all year round.
This super-comfortable lip conditioner also features a wide doe foot applicator for extra smooth application, and a gentle honey aroma.
For best results, use daily for a nourishing glossy finish or apply overnight for a more conditioning result.”
The Revolution Pro Renew Lip Conditioner is £7 / $10 and contains 8ml of product within a clear, plastic, rectangular tube, with a gold chrome lid and a doefoot applicator. It looks really quite luxe considering how affordable it is, and the balm has a pretty pale pink hue.
This Revolution Pro Renew Lip Conditioner is a liquid lip balm which can be applied both morning and night to condition the lips, and hydrate with a comfortable, glossy formula which takes a couple of seconds to apply with the slightly curved doefoot applicator.
As you can see in this ‘swatch’ photo, the balm is practically colourless with a super glossy shine. When applied to the lips, the Revolution Pro Renew Lip Conditioner has a subtle milky pink hue to it, but it’s the kind of liquid lip balm that you can apply to the lips without needing a mirror too.
In the beauty community, the word ‘dupe’ is seriously overused. Some call products dupes if they have similar packaging, or a similar colour story, but I never call something a dupe unless I can honestly say a product performs the same way as another.
I have no doubt that the Revolution Pro Renew Lip Conditioner was designed with the By Terry Baume de Rose Liquid Lip Balm in mind. I own and love the By Terry version, but that lip balm is £34, and the Revolution version is £7.
When I mentioned that the Revolution Pro Renew Lip Conditioner was a dupe for the By Terry version on Instagram, the founder of By Terry commented on my post to say it wasn’t a dupe, and there was a lot more science behind the By Terry Baume de Rose Liquid Lip Balm, which I don’t doubt.
However, we’re in the midst of a pandemic, and many, many people can’t afford to spend £34 on a lip balm. Plus, we are all having to wear face masks whenever leaving the house, so any lip products we do apply, transfer off in seconds.
Lips are drier than ever from the abrasion of wearing a face mask, so if a brand can create an alternative for only £7, I am going to champion the budget friendly option.
I own both the By Terry Baume de Rose Liquid Lip Balm, and the Revolution Pro Renew Lip Conditioner, and they are almost identical.
Visually, the Revolution version looks like a brighter pink in the tube, but once applied to the lips, they look the same. Not only do they look the same, they feel the same, and have the same moisturising benefits.
They even wear for the same amount of time on the lips, and the only difference is the rose scent. The By Terry version has a subtle rose scent, whereas the Revolution Pro Renew Lip Conditioner has a slightly stronger yet sweeter rose scent, but that’s the only thing that’s different between the two products.
I still love By Terry as a brand, but if you don’t want to spend £34 on a lip balm, I cannot recommend the Revolution Pro Renew Lip Conditioner enough. It’s £7 and will give you the same appearance, wear time and hydration of the By Terry version, and it’s available right here.
