More ForGoodnessGrape Balms!

Before I even posted my first review on ForGoodnessGrape, I had already placed an order for two more of Lisa's balms. And after I posted my first review on ForGoodnessGrape, Lisa sent me two balms to try out that don't have sweetener in them since I don't usually like my balms to have sweetener in them (Thanks, Lisa!). I also realized in posting my haul this week, that I need to get on a better schedule of posting my reviews! Which gave me an idea for something else that you'll probably see in the near future...Anyways, on to the balms!

Company: ForGoodnessGrape

Flavors: Lemon Sorbet, Cherry Pina Colada, Blood Orange, and Secret Stash. The Lemon Sorbet is an amazing lemon lip balm! I'm a HUGE lemon fan, I don't know why, but it's just one of my most favorite lip balm flavors. I try to try at least one lemon lip balm from every shop I buy from and Lisa's Lemon Sorbet definitely did not leave me with anything else to desire. I'm not a huge fan of cherry lip balms even though I absolutely LOVE cherries, but thought that it would be nice paired with the coconut from the pina colada part to tone it down a bit. The Cherry Pina Colada was wayyyy too cherry for me. All I could smell was cherry which was a little disappointing for me =(. I love coconut and was sad to not find it in the balm. The Blood Orange, however, is wonderful! I was SO happy to receive this one. It's not exactly blood orange to me, but it is an amazingly dead on orange, citrusy scent. When I first got it I couldn't stop using it, every time I needed lip balm this was the one I grabbed. It's amazing! I also received Lisa's Secret Stash, this balm is supposed to be unscented, but even unscented balms have a little scent to them just from the butters (at least to me). I really prefer my balms to have a scent, I just don't really enjoy using balms that don't. But, that doesn't mean it's a bad balm by any means! And if you like unscented balms, Lisa's Secret Stash is one to try!

Wear: These balms go on without a problem! They glide on nice and smooth, no grittiness or fight at all. They last close to two hours which is great! The Secret Stash feels extra nourishing to me and it's probably because of all the butters Lisa incorporated into it, it's perfect for it's use as a bedtime balm (not that you couldn't use it at other times).

Packaging: These balms come in your average sized lip balm tubes. The tubes are clear with the name of the flavor in large letters on the front of the tube. The labels also have two colored bands at the top and bottom of the tube that are colored to match the indicated flavors. I really like that these balms come in a T-shaped shrink wrap so that the label is protected by the outer layer of plastic. 

Price: $4-$4.75 a tube which is a bit higher than I'm usually willing to pay for a lip balm, but Lisa has sales and specials very frequently that the price often drops by at least 15% (from what I've seen) which is a great price!

Pros: Flavors, Wear, Packaging, Price

Rating: 5 out of 5 twists. Lisa's lip balms are some of my favorites! She as SO many flavors to choose from that there has to be a flavor for everybody's taste.

Have you tried ForGoodnessGrape balms yet? What are your favorite flavors?


  1. The only thing keeping me from ordering from this shop is the price. I keep going back and looking but they are so expensive! There are quite a few flavors I would like to try though.


    1. I know, that's what always held me back too! But, now I just wait for her sales which brings the price down to about my usual price range. Next time she has a sale you should definitely give her balms a shot =).


  2. So glad you like them Christina :)

    Also I always have a 10% off coupon code for first time customers TRYME2DAY which is both my Etsy shop and my direct shop and of course there's the LIPBALMWRANGLER coupon code at my direct shop worth 15% off. Hope these help you out :)

  3. You should try the Banana Colada. It's so tropically delicious - it reminds me of Hawaii! :)

    1. I will definitely look into that one the next time I place an order. Thanks, Alyssa!



Thank you SO much for taking the time to comment, I love reading each and every one!
