While I was searching for my beloved Honey Lip Balm, I happened upon this stuff. Because I am a sucker for anything pomegranate flavored, I bought it. That may be one of the best lip product related decisions I have ever made. This is exactly the thing I have been waiting for.
It isn’t as oily as the Mango Lip Balm. Nor is it waxy like Chapstick. The consistency is awesome, light enough that you can’t really feel it on your lips. It does a good job of moisturizing too. It isn’t as good of an emollient as the honey lip balm but I think it’s good for smoothing rough lips because mine are super soft now that I’ve used it for a week. When you uncap it, the first thing you notice that it is the only tinted balm that comes in little yellow tubes. Instead of paying for the special tinted stuff, just get this. The red seems really garish but it translates into a really natural looking flush on the lips. Plus it gives you the Burt’s Bees sheen that you get with all the other lip balms. It’s like a gloss balm! Perfect for when I’m too lazy to actually pick out a gloss. However the scent is weird. I wanted a pomegranate flavored balm. I got the original peppermint flavor with licorice and overly strong pomegranate mixed in instead. If you can ignore the scent, then its a great buy. I think I will be wearing this more than my Kiehl’s glosses. That’s quite an achievement for a lip balm.
