Lush Honey Trap Lip Balm
Advantages: the most amazing lip balm ive tried
Disadvantages: the price can seem a bit steep
If you have read previous reviews of mine, you will know how much I love Lush and how close my holiday is (2 days). I visited Lush about a week ago and picked up a couple of bits including Tiny Hands which I have already reviewed and this product. I always need a lip balm and moisturiser on holiday as the sun dries out my face completely - including my hair and lips! This lip balm caught my eye due to the pink sticker on the tin (which is quite a silly reason to buy it!).
The balm itself as I mentioned comes in a silver tin with a peachy pink sticker on the top. The usual white funky writing is used with the Lush logo. The tin is about the same size as a vaseline tub, containing 10g of gooey balm. 10g sounds like nothing but if it is anything like vaseline then it will hopefully last me a long while. The back of the tin tells you all of the ingredients and the date in which you must use the product by which is about a year into the future so it will last long enough!
The balm is made with 100% natural ingredients and suitable for vegans. I thought the name 'Honey Trap' was just quirky but it actually contains natural honey - so avoid around flowers or you'll attract the bees! Especially as it contains bees wax too. Other ingredients include vanilla and orange, peppermint and white chocolate.
If I'm honest, I can only really taste the honey when Lush claims that orange is the prominent taste. My friend claimed she could mainly taste the vanilla. I think its very personal as to which is strongest to your own taste buds as everyone is different.
To use the balm, you simply rub your finger around the tub and apply it to your lips. If you have long nails be careful as it tends to get stuck under them. The balm is quite thick but in a creamy way, not too waxy or stiff on your lips - I can't stand when a product is too thick on your lips and gives you a hideous white line!
The balm costs £5.25 for a 10g tin, which might seem quite expensive but it does last a long time and has an amazing effect on your lips.
In my opinion, the product is fantastic. It made my lips so smooth and moisturized. I have to admit I would of much preferred the product if it had a built in SPF factor but you can't be too picky. The product lasts on your lips for ages hydrating them perfectly. I have now favoured it to my beloved vaseline tubs.
