Company: Crazy Rumors
Flavors: Ginger Peach, Pistachio, Red Hibiscus, and Lemonade. I have been eyeing the Ginger Peach ever since they came out with it sometime last year, so I was really excited to try it! This balm definitely does not skip on the ginger, it mostly has the scent of ginger. I smell a very light, light scent of peaches. This is mostly a ginger balm. There's something off about this balm that doesn't really sit well with me. The Pistachio smells absolutely wonderful! It's sweet, creamy, and nutty...everything you'd look for in a pistachio balm. The Red Hibiscus still smells like I remember...delicious! It smells just like candy. I picked up another tube because I'm certain my tube from last year has gone bad by now. This has such a sweet, bright scent. It definitely smells like sugary candy, but combined with a light floral scent as well. If you haven't tried a balm with hibiscus in it yet, I urge you to! It's been about two years since I last used my absolute favorite balm from Crazy Rumors, their Lemonade, so I figured it was about time I got myself another tube. This tube was so disappointing! Completely different from what I had before. Instead of a sweet, slightly sour, all around perfect lemonade balm, this balm smells very lightly of lemon, but kind of has a stale scent of lemon. It wasn't appealing like the tube I used to have. I'm not sure what's different, but this one definitely isn't as good as my old tube.
Wear: These balms are definitely firmer than most of my other balms, but they still go on smooth and don't feel greasy. They also feel a bit thinner than some other balms when going on. I think the consistency of these balms is similar to ForGoodnessGrape balms.
Packaging: These come in your average sized lip balm tube with really neat labels. They have a clean design and are really pleasing to the eye. The company name is right on front and below that is the flavor of the balm in a rectangle colored to match the flavor of the balm. Right next to that rectangle is an image depicting the flavor of the balm.
Price: $3.49 per tube which is a pretty good deal.
Pros: Pistachio, Red Hibiscus, Wear, Packaging, Price
Cons: Ginger Peach, Lemonade
Rating: 3.5 out of 5 twists. I'm sad to say half of this order was disappointing. There's something different about Crazy Rumors balms, but not all of them are affected in a negative way. If you're eyeing some of their balms, I'd still recommend them, but not as whole heartedly as I would have before. Maybe I just got some funky balms, who knows!
