A while ago I went into the GAP (where I almost never go) and when I was being rung up, out of the corner of my eye on a shelf behind me I noticed little objects that I thought were lip balms. So, of course, as soon as I was done being rung up, I went over to have a look and was surprised to see that they were indeed lip balms! And they weren't just ordinary flavors either like strawberry and cherry, there were actually some interesting ones!
Flavors: Pineapple Twist, Strawberry Kiwi, and Blackberry. The Pineapple Twist smells like amazing fresh and sweet pineapple, really nice and tropical and a great pineapple balm. I don't usually like the combination of strawberry and kiwi, but I thought I'd give this balm a shot. The Strawberry Kiwi smells incredible! Sweet, ripe strawberries combined with juicy kiwis, this balm really surprised me! The Blackberry balm smells just like the real thing; sweet ripe berries, perfect for summer!
Wear: These balms glide on so smooth! Two swipes on top and bottom and you're good to go! They cover really well. They also have SPF 18 in them so I like that especially now that I'm outdoors more and more now and I really need some extra protection from the sun.
Packaging: These balms come in your average sized lip balm tubes; the tubes are silver which isn't something that I see a lot, usually it's black, white, or clear. The labels on these balms are so fun and stick out a bit in my collection. They're a little bit shiny and metallic? If that makes sense. The labels look so chic and sophisticated.
Price: $4.50 per tube which is definitely out of my price range, but I think there was a special on these balms which is why I let myself pick them up.
Pros: Flavors, Wear, Packaging
Rating: 4.5 out of 5 twists. These balms surprised me with how lovely they applied and how wonderful the flavors were! They also have a plain mint balm that I didn't pick up, but I'm sure it's lovely as well!
