Beauty ¦ The King and Queen of the balms


I'm not sure that I have ever repurchased a lip balm in my life but this one has completely changed the game. The minute I hit the bottom of the pot I panicked ordered another tub off feel unique almost straightaway.
 


When I first tried it I just wasn't sure whether it would live up to the hype however a whole pot of the stuff later and I'm hooked. It's a very thick balm which leaves the lips with a semi matte finish rather than that usual glossy look when you've first applied lip balm. This works really nicely under any lipstick however it does tend to make the formula sheerer if you have to much left on the lips when you put your lip product on.
 


One of the things I love about this balm is how nourishing it. It leaves lips feeling smoother and just a teeny bit more plumped. Despite it's thick texture it doesn't feel heavy on the lips and is perfectly comfortable to wear all day on the lips. It doesn't leave a white cast like some heavier lip balms can so it's fab for wearing on it's own on super low key makeup days. Something I do have to mention is the smell which I personally love however some people might not be a fan as it is pretty strong. It smells like chocolate oranges which for me is an absolute dream!
 
 
Overall if you suffer from super dry and flaky lips I would highly recommend this balm. It isn't the cheapest however it is worth every penny!

  6. I'm so desperate to try this, I don't think I've heard a single bad thing about it! Maybe once I get through my huge lip balm stash I can invest in a pot of my own...

    1. The robl with Vaseline is that it creates a barrier between your lips and the outer environment however it doesn't actually moisturise! X
