What we say:
Thanks to BeautySouthAfrica for allowing me to discover this range of lip balms which I had never come across before being sent the trial product. The flavour I was sent to review was the I Love… Lemons & Limes. It came in a 15ml clear pot with a black lid displaying the name of the balm. Once you twist open the lid, the distinctive fruity smell is quite evident and also lingers for most of the day. This balm provides a high gloss finish and is perfect on its own or over a lipstick to add that extra special shine. You can also feel it providing well-needed moisture and it smoothes away flakes within hours. A bit on the expensive side for a lip balm but since the jar is large it is worth it. Would definitely like to try other flavours in this range.
The coconut and cream glossy lip balm is amazing! It is super moisturising and smells wonderful, like pina coladas on the beach. My lips felt softer and smoother from the first application. The only downside is that if you apply too much it gives a white tinge to your lips. So, don’t apply too much – it won’t give you more gloss, it will just make your lips look pasty. I would definitely recommend this product, especially for those who want a moisturising gloss. For the price you get quite a big tub, and it is really worth it.
I got to test the I love lips…Blueberry & Smoothie flavour. I have to say when I first saw this lip balm I hated it! It made me think of those lip balms teenage girls always have with them. But what a pleasant surprise you get when you open the tub, it truly does smell like a Blueberry Smoothie, absolutely divine! Having long nails it is difficult to get the product from the tub, but I used a cotton bud and that worked nicely.
Using the balm for the first time, my lips felt instantly moisturised, and had a nice sheen too. The product stayed on my lips for three to four hours every time I used it, without getting dry. Also it now has become my favourite product for my lips at bedtime. I use it at bedtime and the next morning my lips feel great, not dry at all as usual. I have to say that I am in love with this product and will definitely buy it myself!
