Company: Tom Jack's
Flavors: Citrus, Cocoa Mint, and Birch Beer. The Citrus smells like a bright combination of lemon and lime in my opinion. I thought it would be more like orange, but I actually like this combination of scents! It has a sweet, slightly sour scent and it's just wonderful! The first scent I get when I smell the Cocoa Mint is cool, tingly peppermint; it's so refreshing! Then there's a lovely scent of milk chocolate. It's a pretty refreshing take on a mint chocolate balm since the mint is the first thing I smell. I've never tried a Birch Beer balm before (or birch beer for that matter), but I was pleasantly surprised by this one. It reminds me of when I was in band and the lubricant we used on some of our instruments (I played clarinet). I actually liked the scent of that so this is wonderful! Rob thinks this smells like winter/spearmint. I can't say if this smells like real birch beer or not, but this does smell good!
Wear: The Citrus and Cocoa Mint come in tins and I feel like I have to dip into the tin multiple times to get enough product onto my lips, so the consistency may be a little thin out of the tin. The Birch Beer came in a tube and it goes on smooth and even, the consistency is a little thin, but I don't feel like I need to put more on.
Packaging: Like I said, two of these come in tins and one came in a tube. The design is kind of upscale, but rustic at the same time...if that makes sense. I like that it looks like something you'd find in an apothecary of sorts.
Price: The tins are $3.50 and the tubes are $2.25, both prices are definitely reasonable!
Pros: Flavors, Wear, Packaging, Price
Rating: 4 out of 5 twists. These balms were pretty good! I keep one tin in my makeup bag at all times to wear under lipstick. I was glad I was able to try balms from a shop I've never tried before!
