I love lip balm. I always seem to reach for a lip balm over any other make up product and find that it is an essential in my bag.
When I first heard about Balmi I was very excited as these are very comparable to the EOS lip balms that I have never tried and are less readily available in the UK.
Balmi comes in a spherical egg like container that twists to reveal the dome shaped balm. It also has an opportunity to use it as a keyring.This packaging makes application easy and fuss free and also more hygienic as you don’t have to keep dipping your finger in.The lip balm contains UVA/UVB SPF 15 which is a great bonus, especially in the summer months ( or weeks in Englands’ case).
When I use this I find it very smooth to apply and moisturising on the lips. I can apply this and after an hour or so my lips still feel moisturised however you can’t feel or taste the balm after 30 minutes.
The strawberry flavour is very pleasant, not sickly and I find is much like the edible paper you can find on cakes, this isn’t tingly on the lips. The mint flavour is very tingly and refreshing, much like toothpaste, but isn’t painful.
Although these are not my favourite lip balm ( I love my Medicated Chapstick for really chapped lips!) , I really like these balms and would consider repurchasing them in the future or buying them as a gift for somebody as my friends are often intrigued about them.
