When it comes to lip balm its really something that I really could do with using from time to time but I can't be bothered with....unless my lips are sore as I don't really like anything on my lips at all including lippie! After a cold recently and getting well again my nose was left dry and red and my lips completely dried up and flaky which is why when I was in Boots getting some throat pastilles I picked a small box of this up near the checkout to try.
The little pot comes in a light blue square, small box. On the top of the box I am told that it is Balm Balm 'Tea Tree' Lip Balm (and more) and some stuff in a foreign language. On the front of the box again I am told what it is and that it is a 100% organic & 100% natural and that it is lip, face, hand and foot balm and again stuff in a foreign language is written. Other information listed on the other sides of the box includes being told a bit about the product, the ingredients are listed as are how to use it and contact details for Balm Balm are given. Open up the box and you get a small white plastic round shaped pot with a twist on and off lid to the top of it and again on the lid we are told simply what it is. No size is stated anywhere on the packaging but I think it is a handy 7ml size (and the only size it is available to purchase in as far as I am aware of). Dinky little pot and all the packaging is informative enough of course.
A Bit About The Product According To The Information Given On The Box:
Tea Tree Balm Balm moisturises and conditions. It is antibacterial too so will help soothe away all sorts of little problems.
All ingredients are approved by The Soil Association. Packaging is recyclable and card is sourced from sustainable forests.
Well this is an off white stiffish looking mixture in the pot not unlike petroleum jelly in its appearance. Touch it and it is soft and not too greasy and it scoops out with ease as it really is moist when it comes into contact with the skin. Per job you want to do you only need a very small amount and this really is a a handy little tub of product.
It smears onto the skin with ease, is easy to massage into the skin too thus not needing much of it and it dries over time whilst still feeling lightly hydrating for a good couple of hours.
Now as you only get a small pot of this it really is for small jobs only and I have used it as lip balm, on some dry skin on an elbow whilst out and about and on my dry chewed up cuticles on my fingers that I bite that were a little bit painful.
This has a very light fragrance of tea tree to which is very fresh and clean smelling and all in all its a great powerful little product. Its great at moisturising the lips in a not too greasy way, eradicated the feeling of dry skin to where I applied it to for a time (though didn't cure the dry skin but I only used it the once and in an emergency) and on my cuticles and it stopped them feeling so chewed and jagged instantly.
I like this product and a little of it really does go a very long way indeed. I like the way you can basically apply it anywhere and that its greasy enough for a bit to go a long way and if you don't use very much it really isn't too greasy and/or transferable!
Available in all good chemists and online and I paid about £2.00 for my pot in Boots.
