After trying the bubblegum one - which did last me a good while - I then decided to get the blueberry one to try. It applies the same as the bubblegum one and smells as yummy! They do have different lipbalms to choose from not just bubblegum and blueberry. You can also get these lipbalms in sets instead of singular, which would make a good stocking filler. . They're in a lot of shops and are not expensive to buy and well worth the money paid!
A lot of lip balms I've used ive had to reapply shortly after application as they dont last that long on the lips and shortly after the lips feel dry, but with theses lip balms i find my lips stay soft for quite a long time and dont have to apply lipbalm constantly which is really good and I tend to bite my lips a lot which makes them feel really rough and horrible but i find if i use this lip balm it makes my lips feel a lot better and softer instead of really dry looking.
I use a applicator brush to apply mine- I suppose some people may use their fingers but I would rather use an applicator but they're cheap to buy and you usually get a few in a pack when buying in applicators or you can bulk buy online.
I always keep one in my bag now for any time im out and forget to apply lip balm and feel i need to.
I hope they make more scented lip balms as id definately be interested in trying them too!
I absolutely love Jelly Belly products, and own their body sprays, a few of the candles and even a set of Jelly Belly ear phones! I've been aware of their lipgloss and lip balm range for a while now but it's never really appealed to me, purely because I am twenty now and I imagined the lipbalm/ligploss to smell overlly sweet and quite 'young' - like something a young teenager would use rather than a young adult. I was recently browsing Amazon as I had a gift voucher to spend and I came across a seller selling a range of Jelly Belly products. I decided to place quite a large order as I wanted some more of the candles and in order to qualify for free delivery I ended up buying two of the jelly belly lip balms, as I have wanted to try them for a while and they were very reasonably priced at just under £2 each for each 8 gram pot of lipbalm.
This lip balm is scented with a range of sweet and fruity smells. I unfortunetly didn't get to choose my preferred flavours due to buying from a seller who didn't give a choice of flavours (stupid or what!) and they were picked at random. I ended up with 'Bubblegum' and 'Very Cherry'. Other flavours include 'Cotton Candy' and 'Watermelon'. This lip balm isn't really very widely available as far as I am aware, I have never seen it in shops but I have seen it on a variety of websites including the official Jelly Belly website, Amazon, eBay and I think ASOS may sell it too. The prices do vary and seem to range from 90p-£2 per pot although a 3 piece set can be purchased from the original Jelly Belly site for £3.05. I know this seems like a good deal but the postage unfortunetly boosts the price up by a siginificant amount.
I paid £1.74 for each pot of lip balm which I was quite happy with paying, it is not an extortionate price in my opinion and considering the amount in each pot (8 grams) I do think it's pretty good value - this is definetly an affordable lip balm and would definetly be a nice gift for a young teenager - I unfortunetly am not keen on this lip balm but I do think a younger girl would love it. As mentioned above I recieved the bubblegum and cherry flavour lip balms. Each come packaged in an 8 gram pot which is round and made of sturdy plastic. The lid screws on and off and the packaging is very eyecatching. Each pot is a different colour to reflect the flavour - for example the cherry flavour one has a red pot, while the bubblegum has a pink pot. The only branding on each pot is the sticker on the lid which simply has the Jelly Belly logo and the flavour. The packaging is very fun, vibrant and girlie and will definetly appeal to children/young teenagers, I personally found it to be quite tacky and it was simply too 'young' for my liking.
The first thing I noticed about the lip balm upon opening it was how strong the smell was. I knew it was going to be scented but the smell hit me straight away and it was gorgeous! Both of my lip balms smelt amazing, but I think I do prefer the bubblegum. It's a very sweet, overlly suggary and girly smell, and it does definetly smell like bubblegum, but a very sweet bubblegum. There's a very faint strawberry scent which is very sweet and the overall smell is sweet and it doesn't taste too bad either! The taste is obviously not as good as the smell but it's not the type of lip balm that tastes vile! The very cherry smell is almost as good as the bubblegum but the cherry smell is way too over the top which puts me off a little bit, it's got a strange undertone to it too and it's not quite as sweet smelling, it's still nice though. Like the bubblegum flavour, it also tastes okay but again, it is not edible nor does it actually taste 'nice' - it's not yucky tasting though! The lip balm itself is coloured to reflect the flavour - the Bubblegum flavoured one is a dark pink, while the Very Cherry flavoured one is a lovely shade of red.
The texture of this lip balm is unusual but quite nice, visually it is quite jelly like however to the touch it actually has the consistency of vaseline. I have found that it takes a few seconds to get a decent amount of product onto my finger due to the slightly hard texture however if I rub my finger across the surface it soon softens up and is easy to apply onto my lips. There is no application brush supplied with this lip balm meaning you will have to use your fingers, so for the hygiene concious this probably isn't a product for you as you do need to dab your fingers into it. I apply this by applying a generous amount onto my lips, the lip balm is easy to smooth over my lips and it doesn't feel or appear lumpy. This lip balm is not tinted despite its appearence while in the tub and it simply provides a nice glossy shine to my lips, making them appear moist and well nourished. The shine is not over the top or tacky looking at all. My lips feel smooth and hydrated almost instantly application, the product absorbs quickly and the smell is really nice too, which is always a plus side with lip balms! The lasting power is okay but not great, I have been applying this in the morning (8am ish) and it usually lasts until 10/11am.
The lip balm is good, but a bit too 'young' for me due to the overlly sweet smell, which I also found to be noticeabley fake smelling rather than naturally fruity. It was a pleasant smell but simply too strong. I also didn't like the packaging as it looked tacky and I would of preferred the product much more had it been packaged in tube form as it would be more convinient in my opinion. The lip balm though moisturises my lips and keeps them feeling smooth, it's also very affordable and a nice change to my usual lip balm, and so overall I do reccomend this product and I give it 3/5 stars.
I absolutely love the "jelly belly" sweets and always buy them loose so I can pick the flavours I like best, I was out shopping at the weekend and while browsing in poundland I noticed the Jelly belly lip balm, it was the first time I had ever seen the lip balm and was delighted to pop it in my basket. I bought the bubblegum flavour as its my favourite jelly belly sweetie.
As I said I bought it from poundland and believe it or not it only cost a £1.00. I have now noticed that amazon is selling them for £2.00 Its well worth the money I paid but poundland usually has limited stock and you may find it difficult to buy from your local shop.
The lip balm comes in a small plastic tub which is transparent and you can see the lip balm colour through it, in the bubblegum flavour it looks pale pink. It has a screw off lid which is also made from plastic and is a pale pink shade, the lid has a sticker on it with the "jelly belly" logo on it and a scroll with the words "bubblegum" and a few different coloured jelly belly sweets. The tub contains 8g of lip balm. On the reverse of the tub is another sticker with product information, it has to be discarded after 12 months of being opened and its actually made by baylis & harding.
The lid unscrews without much effort and for such a small tub its easy to grip, there is a foil cover over the inner tub which I just removed and binned but it was to keep the lip balm fresh. The lip balm is a pale transparent pink colour and looked quite like jelly but I found it felt similar to apply like Vaseline and had a petrolium jelly texture to it.
It made my lips feel soft and smooth, I often have cracked lips with the cold weather but found it improved my cracked lips with only a few applications of the lip balm. The main positive about the lip balm is the scent of the lip balm, I bought the bubblegum flavour and it smelt like bubble gum, it smelt sweet and sugary. Although the lip balm looked a slight pink tinge in the tub I found it made no difference to my lip colour. My lips looked and felt very hydrated and healthy and will be continuing to use this lip balm thought the winter.
My only negative comment is the sticker on the lid looks quite cheap and tacky, it looks like its almost printed of a home computer. Jelly belly being such a huge company I expected a more quality sticker. I only paid a £1.00 so I have a bit of a cheek complaining about it.
I am a huge fan of the 'Jelly Belly' jelly bean range and whenever i'm in Selfridges in the Bullring i'm always really tempted bu the pick&mix style selection of all the yummy flavours :) So when i saw these tubs of jelly belly lip balms in my local bodycare i just had to try them out to see if they really did live up to the sweets they're based on, and i was very pleasantly surprised :)
STOCKIST: Bodycare and various online stores.
Flavours: Cotton candy, Very Cherry, Bubblegum, Watermelon, Blueberry. (Possibly more but these are all i've seen/own)
*I own Very Cherry, Bubblegum and Watermelon. So there the flavours this reveiw will be based on*
~The Lip Balms~
The lipbalms are in small circular tubs in a variety of bright colours that match the flavour. So very cherry is red, Bubblegum is light pink and watermelon is green etc. The bright colours are actually what drew my eyes to these lip balms on the shelf in the first place and whenever i get them out of my bag to use people ALWAYS comment on them and ask where there from etc.
The Lip balm itself is the same colour as the pots (but dont worry they wont show up green or blue on your lips these ones show up clear and the pink and red have a very slight coloured tinge to them).The lipbalm is applied by using your finger which although it can be a little messy when your on the go, i actually prefer it as you dont need a mirror like the ones in a stick.
~What I Thought~
The first thing you notice when you open the tub is the smell. They smell delicious! And they actually smell just like the flavours they are meant to be!The lip balm goes on really easily and they aren't sticky or greasy like the tubs of vaseline that i often used before. they leave your lips feeling more moisturised and they look glossy but without being too shiny or greasy. Now obviously despite being made by a food brand they are not suppose to be eaten however, being on your lips you do get a bit of a taste and they are delicious! It's actually really tempting no to eat them!!
I would definitley reccomend these lip balms as they are cheap, look great, smell (and taste) delicious and the small pots are great for in your bag and get you noticed. 10/10

I bought this in Hawkins Bazzar last year, the flavour I chose was very cherry. I like Jelly Belly beans and also the car air fresheners so I thought I would give this a go. It cost me £3 for a pot which contains 8g of lip balm. They also had watermelon, cotton candy, bubblegum and blueberry scents available.
This particular lip balm is made by Bayliss & Harding. They describe is as a vibrantly smelling soothing lip balm to keep your lips oh so soft & oh so kissable. You use this in the same way as other lip balms, you simply apply a small amount to your lips as and when you like. When you open the container you do get the distict cherry scent. However I found it a little artificial smelling. The lip balm itself has the most horrendous consistency, it is like a jelly. It is red in colour and when you put your finger in to get some out it is very sticky and has a tendency to get under your nails.
When I applied this to my lips they looked glossy this would be because of the gel like consistency. I have to say I didn't find it at all moisturising. It just stayed on my lips as a sticky residue for most of the day.
I would not recommend this. It did nothing apart from make my lips shiny. I was very disappointed, for that reason I would only give this 2 out of 5 stars. This one is probably for kids!
I do like the Jelly Belly brand and have ate the beans, burned the candles and now used their Lip Balm. I spotted this in my local branch of Claire's when I was in stocking up on Hair Bobbles which is all that I usually buy from there. It's not exactly the shop for me.
This was cheaper than what I thought it would be considering the brand name. I picked up this little pot for a bargain 99p. Not sure if this is available in any other "flavours" but I would assume that it is. Cotton Candy isn't my favourite kind of scent but I thought a nice sweet scent would be alright.
This comes in the little pot that is shown on here. So this is a light pink in colour and there is the branding on the top with little coloured Jelly Belly's on it. You just unscrew the lid and you can smell the Sweet scent when you open this.
To use this just dig your finger slightly into the waxy Balm and rub onto your Lips.
So did this taste ok? You get the sweet Cotton Candy scent and a slight taste of it, but then it just ends up a waxy taste and consistency.
This make my lips nice and soft and I can see this lasting quite a long time. I've only made a small dent in this and been using it for a few weeks.
A good product from a great brand.
After visiting my local Bodycare shop just before Christmas, I was a little worried that my daughter spotted this product straightaway, and insisted on buying it...not because I don't rate it, but because I knew my mum had purchased the gift set in the same range, boy was I going to get told off if my mum found out! Lol!
The product in question is - "Jelly Belly - bubblegum lip balm".
This product comes within it's own little plastic pot with screw lid, all coloured in pink to symbolise the bubblegum element, but with the obligatory multi coloured jelly beans all over too, lets be honest this company are better known for there amazing gourmet beans, so they have to try and keep the brands tied in together.
There is the briefest of information on the pot itself, with flavour, contents and weight(8g) really being the only things mentioned, though the bottom half of the pot is clear, so the fantastically pink balm is visible within......no words needed!
Once the screw lid is removed you are faced with a pot that looks full of pink jelly, which in fact you are, as when I rubbed my finger of the surface it is well set, but definitely not solid!
The rule is to rub your finger gently over the surface, which is enough to release the smooth gel balm, rather than digging lumps of jelly out, this is more than enough product, one wipe per lip!
The smell of the balm is very much like the 2p bubble gums you could get a few years ago, the one's with tattoo's wrapped around, very sweet and very distinctive too.
When smeared onto the lips it has a real feel of Vaseline, very smooth and slick feeling and fantastic at keeping your lips smooth and moisturized, with the taste being just sweet, and the scent feeling like it's flowing into your mouth and nose, this is actually fantastic.
Longevity of the product has a shelf life of 12 months after opening, though I think it would last (with daily use) a good few months, as my daughter has yet to make a dent into this and she has been using it daily since before Christmas (it's a young girl thing, the newest craze at school is flavoured lip balms!).
There are plethora of flavours available, with the set my daughter received from Mum at Christmas containing (thankfully) completely different ones to this one, very cherry, blueberry, watermelon and candyfloss, with the cherry one being my favourite, my darling daughter gave it to me!
Price wise this was purchased from Bodycare for 99p, and is also available from Claire's accessories for a higher price.

This is a lovely product that smells as good as it looks, recommended!
Thanks for reading x
I got this lip balm sent to me as part of a present from one of my penpals in America. The one she sent me is Watermelon - now I don't like Watermelon's in real life, or indeed jelly beans, but I do really like the smell of this.
The lip balm comes in a little plastic pot with a screw on lid, jelly bean decorated label on the top a label of ingredients and a caution on the base. Yes it's cheaply made and some would say tacky but since when were jelly beans high class? It's supposed to be a fun product and the packaging works in this sense.
The balm itself is transparent and has a slight colouration to it - in the case of the watermelon balm, it is slightly green but don't worry it doesn't make your lips look moudly! The consistency reminds me of vaseline and has a slightly greasy feel to it but it does a great job of making my lips feel really soft.
On the downside, this lip balm isn't very long lasting - if you eat or drink anything then there won't be a trace of it left on your lips and even if you don't do this you'll still find yourself having to reapply it on a regular basis. Despite this I've been using mine since christmas and still have over half of it left (a full pot is 8g) so a little really does go a long way.
I haven't seen this product in any shops over here but judging by other reviews about it, it is available and for quite a low price (under £2) but not having bought it myself I am unable to advise people where they can get it from.
Overall I quite like this lip balm - it smells nice and it makes my lips feel soft but it's a shame it has a slight greasy texture and doesn't last very long on the lips. I wouldn't be adverse to buying myself some if I saw it available at the right price although I feel there are better products available on the market. Even so this is the sort of lipbalm that would make a good stocking filler type present.
Jelly Belly Lip Balm- Good enough to eat!
I actually have the watermelon version of this. Therefore, my review will be based on this!
A few months ago, I has an addiction to jelly beans- it didn't matter what brand they were I just loved them in general! When I came across the jelly bean lip balm range in a gadget shop of all places, I wanted it instantly!
What is it?
This is a deliciously scented lip balm range that is based on the flavours of jelly beans! For example, water melon, cotton candy and cherry!!
This lip balm comes in a small tub with a screw top lid which is quite handy as this way it doesn't get too messy! The watermelon flavour is in a green tub with images of jelly beans all over it! This lasts for 6 months but I guarantee it will last longer than this as they always do!
The smells that all of the different flavours give off are amazing. I love the way that people can actually smell this when you are wearing it. My boyfriend said he smelt a really nice watermelon smell- this was the lip balm!
Does it last?
This can stay on your lips for up to 1 hour which is not too bad but it is only lip balm and it is only designed to care for your lips!
What does it do?
This moisturises your lips as well as making you smell so great- good enough to eat in my eyes!
As I said before, I bought my lip balm from a gadget shop but you can get this from Amazon and lots of other places on the internet and on the high street! This cost me £2.00 which is great!
Grab this bargain lip balm and you will be pleased!
I saw this Jelly Belly lip balm in the pound shop and ended up buying 4 because I loved the smell of all of them. They're all brill lip balms and smell wicked and just like the flavour they are supposed to be like, some of them are better than others and I'll tell you about them in a minute.
Jelly Belly are more famous for their wicked jelly beans that come in all sorts of mad flavours and cost a fortune and are available from places like Selfridges. I don't eat them very often because they're wicked but not worth a trip into town for so I was proper excited when I found these lip balms because I like novelty lip balms and it's even better when they work well.
The flavour lip balms I brought were:-
I am starting with this one because it's not my favourite one and from now on they will get better. The lip balm is nice and has got a smooth consistency but the smell is too overpowering and the orange is too strong. It doesn't leave my lips as soft as the other flavours I've got and I think it's a bit drying so I don't use this one anymore.
This is my favourite Jelly Belly lip balm because it's such a girly sweetie smell that even tastes sweet when you lick your lips. It makes my lips lovely and soft and gives them a bit of a sheen that looks good over lipstick and brightens my look up if I'm not wearing make up.
Even though this one is the same waxy jelly texture as the others it seems a bit creamier and richer on my lips. It gives a nice shine when it's fresh on and moisturises my lips the best out of all of them and gives them a very smooth feel and appearance. I love the rich fruity smell of this one and the way it smells wicked of cherry sweets and the smell lasts for ages.
I'm not mad for the smell of melon because I think it's a bit too much sometimes and I wasn't sure if I'd like a lip balm to smell of it but it's actually quite nice and not as strong as I thought it would be. It's quite moisturising and leaves my skin soft but the feeling doesn't last for long and this is one of them lip balms that you have to keep reapplying to feel the effect of it.
I like the consistency of all the Jelly Belly lip balms because it looks like jelly in the pot but when you put your finger in it you'll see it's solid and just a smear comes away on your finger and eventually you'll get the knack of getting enough on your finger to do your lips in one go. For £1.00 each I think they're wicked but the usual price is about £2.50 and I think they're worth that anyway because they feel so nice to wear and come in wicked flavours that have got dead unusual smells and actually do the job of softening my lips instead of just being a gimmick.
This year, me and the other half decided to make up a stocking for each other for Christmas day. Honestly, i was fantastic, so many wonderful and unusual bits and pieces. One of the very best bits? The Jelly Belly lip balm! I had no idea that Jelly Belly made anything like this (but I have since discovered they do everything from bags to bath gel!) so I thought id pop in my opinion on this dinky little lip balm.
This time, i got the 'Cotton Candy' lip balm, which comes in a small baby pink circular screw top pot, around 3cm wide. The pot is wider at the top around the lid, and tapers in at the bottom, like an upside down top hat - for want of a better analogy!
On the top, there is a sticker with 'cotton candy - deliciously scented lip balm' written across a pink scroll, with the red and yellow 'jelly belly' logo above. On the white background, there are lots of lovely little jelly beans, in pink, red, blue, green and yellow.
On the base of the pot, is a layered sticker with the size of the pot (6m), the best before date and the fantastic news that this product is not tested on animals. The sticker peels at the corner to reveal the ingredients list (handy for those with allergies) and the somewhat hilarious disclaimer 'Caution - this is not a food. Do not drink or eat.' You have been warned. ;)
Personally, I love the style of this lip balm. Great for kids, but cute and kitsch enough for adults too. The style is adorable, especially the baby pink. yummy enough to eat (but don't, because you have already been warned about that!)
The lip balm itself fills up just over 3/4 of the pot and is a lovely light pink colour. Whilst the product does have a tint, its too light to colour your lips and is generally just to add to the effect of the lip balm.
The balm is quite solid, and it takes a few squiggles with a warm finger to get off enough lip balm to put on your lips. However, once applied, this is a fantastic little balm. Gentle but not too light, and leaves a nice coat for a shine without being sticky or overbearing.
The very best thing though, is the smell. The Cotton candy smells like..well...cotton candy! Its just the most lovely sweet and sugary smell. Again, it makes you want to eat it, though sadly, it tastes only like lip balm.
If you have very dry or problematic skin I don't think the lip balm will be strong enough to condition your lips, but if you want a cute, and sweet smelling edition to your make-up bag, give this one a go. I got it for christmas, but from shopping around online it seems to cost around £1.50 - a real bargain for this lovely little thing :D
Also, if Cotton Candy isn't your thing, there are several other scents;
- Very Cherry
Where to buy
Please correct me if im wrong, but I haven't seen these anywhere on the high-street. However, a little birdy tells me that they may be available from Topshop?
However, loads of different sellers have them on Ebay, or you can buy them from the UK jelly belly shop at: http://www.jellybelly-uk.com/cgi-bin/jb/products.pl?category=7
For my stocking, my other half brought them from Hawkins Bazaar, so they might be worth a check too at: http://www.hawkin.com/find/keyword-is-jelly+belly/product-is-07830
I LOVE this lip balm. Its gentle on your lips and not sticky like other cheaper lip balms can be. The pot is adorable and the smell is gorgeous, im really looking forward to trying the other flavours! (nb - Scents, not flavours! >.<)
Yep, it's made by the people who brought us the best jelly beans in the world!
I saw this product at the tills in Bodycare, on one of those stands which make you look at them while you're queuing up (and in my case usually buy). I really didn't need another lipbalm but these looked so kitsch and cute I just couldn't help myself, plus they were only 99p each so I'm actually quite proud of myself for buying just the one :)
The lip balm is in a little pale pink tub, the colours varied for each flavour!
It has an easy to twist off lid which is covered with a white label, the label has the flavour written on a pink scroll across the middle of it 'Cotton Candy' in this case, under the name it says 'deliciously scented lip balm' above this is the Jelly Belly branding; a little red jelly bean with yellow writing. In the background are more tiny jelly belly jelly beans in red, green, blue, pink and yellow.
All in all, it's very cute and girly; I'm starting to think its maybe aimed at little girls.....probably why I loved it so much, I still want to be a princess just as I did when I was 10!
Underneath is another white label, this tells me the size (8g), that the company who make it is against animal testing, the company name: Baylis & Harding and the fact it is manufactured in Taiwan.
The packaging is also made from recyclable plastic.
When I twist the lid off, the inside of the tub and lid is the same colour as the outside; pale pink, the balm itself is a slightly darker pink but still very girly!
So the sniff test; it smells like candy floss, sweet and sugary. If only it tasted the same....
I applied some to my lips, it's quite a firm balm but that may have something to do with the average temperature around here being -1 at the minute!
Plenty comes off on your finger though but it doesn't make the contents look a mess, I am a bit strange with wanting things like this to look neat and not used, I know I'm odd.
It covers my lips nicely, doesn't feel sticky just soft and moisturising. I then lick my lips expecting the taste of sugar but it just tastes like cheap lip balm! I now take more notice of the lid which does say 'deliciously scented' not flavoured...damn.
I suppose it's a good thing, it means it will stay on my lips longer as I'm not going to be licking it off all the time. I have been known to eat strawberry and mint Lypsyl straight from the tube because it tastes so good....
So this lip balm may last longer than a week!
I have been using it a week now as I waited for Dooyoo to add my suggestion and I can say it works really well, my lips are soft and kissable but they just don't taste as nice as I'd hoped. The weather as I'm sure you know has been freezing and that usually equals dry cracked lips but not with my Jelly Belly balm!
This lipbalm is also available in these flavours:
If your local Bodycare doesn't stock this, you can also buy online from www.jellybelly-uk.com, as well as the obvious (jelly beans) they stock other things such as soaps, shower gels, bath salts and these lip balms for the price of £1.46.
Worth a look for cute stocking fillers I think, the other products are really reasonably priced too with nothing costing over a fiver.
Keeps your lips soft and deliciously scented /
