If you remember one of my Wishlist Wednesdays from a while back, I had these on said list. I heard good things about them from the beauty community and thought it'd be worth giving them a try.
I cannot stand this lip balm.
I always liked to think I have *~sensitive~* lips and no regular balm could do anything to moisturize them. I got over myself a bit since I've discovered lip products other than my age-old Blistex that really did help my lips stay soft. Using this balm took me right back to the days where I thought only balms laced with magical pixie dust would do the trick for me. It feels hot and just..heavy on my lips. I hate balms that do that. It also doesn't do much to moisturize. I mean it'll do a little something for a bit, but then my lips end up feeling sticky rather than smooth.
I was also originally excited that it came in a Vanilla and Lavender scent. I absolutely love Lavender (see blog name/URL), and have never come across a lip product that was scented with it. And the smell of this is nice..in the tube. When it's on my lips (and the few times it's gotten into my mouth) it just gives off a strong perfume-y smell and makes me feel like I'm eating a perfume. It's really unsettling, and it's taking me a lot to complain about this.
I'm sure for other people who don't have such dry lips as I do (and also aren't as picky as I am), this would be awesome. I just can't deal with it for too long, and I'm glad I only purchased one.
