Little Batch, Again!

I don't know if you all have noticed or not, but Jen over at Little Batch has re-opened her shop! As you may recall, she closed up shop for a little while to prepare for the birth of her child, but now she's back! So I figured it was a better time than any to review my second (and third) purchases I made right before she closed.

Company: Little Batch Apothecary

Flavors: Candy Cane, Peppermint, Hot Cocoa, Vanilla Cupcake, Pumpkin Cheesecake, Gingerbread, and White Chocolate. Clearly these were purchased right in the beginning of winter and I was very much into winter and fall flavors. The Candy Cane is a wonderful blend of peppermint and a hint of vanilla, just like the favorite Christmas time treat! It's nice and icy and just all around wonderful. The Peppermint is very cooling, tingly, and minty! The Hot Cocoa is heaven in a tube, I swear, it's so chocolatey and rich and decadent and just amazing. It's scrumptious and an absolute must-have for any chocolate lover! I usually don't like cupcake scented things (balms, candles, lotions, etc) but the Vanilla Cupcake smells incredible, exactly like a vanilla cupcake with creamy, delicious frosting on top. The Pumpkin Cheesecake smells spicy and pumpkiny, yet very creamy. It's a great balm for fall! The Gingerbread also smells spicy and warm and just like I would imagine gingerbread to smell. It's lovely! And of course, the White Chocolate smells amazing! Very creamy and chocolatey in the way only white chocolate can be. I knew I would love this balm since I am already so in love with Jen's Winter Frost which is a combination of White Chocolate and Peppermint.

Wear: These balms go on smooth and cover flawlessly. They melt into my lips and provide a little bit of shine on my lips. They last around a minimum of two hours which is wonderful.

Packaging: These lovely balms come in those oval tubes that I love and have white labels that have the flavor of the balm stated right out on front. Each balm has two sets of stripes that are on the face of the label which are color coded to match the flavor of the balm. It's a subtle difference that makes each balm unique!

Price: $4 per tube, which is definitely worth it for one of Jen's balms!

Pros: Flavors, Wear, Packaging, Price

Rating: 5 out of 5 twists, I really love Little Batch balms and I cannot wait to see what Jen comes up with this year. I can always use a few more Little Batch balms in my collection! (If you can believe it ;)).

Ingredients: Beeswax, Cocoa Seed Butter, Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Castor Oil, Vitamin E, Flavor

  1. I just received my current order from Jen at LB! This time I ordered the Jelly Bean, Coconut Milk and Peaches, Furry Bunny Tails, and the New Jersey Cranberry! All delish as always! So happy that her shop is open for business again!

    1. I'm so glad you're enjoying all of your new LB balms! I can't wait to see what she comes up with now that she's open again!


  2. Christina, thank you for such a great post about my balms. My performance anxiety kicked in when I started reading, but was thrilled to read how much you liked them! It makes me happy to be able to spread my lip balm obsession to others. I really need to make more white chocolate balm... it's one of my favorites that's always in rotation, and the stock is dangerously low!


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