Avon Strawberry Lip Balm, from the Naturals range is a must have for most girls of most ages. I used to use general chapstick and found the smell and taste disgusting. It also looks like lard in a twisty tube which always put me off. Many years ago I found this gem in my Avon catalogue and have continued to use this since. I have bought these from Avon as well as eBay depends where I find them when I most need to buy them. They are generally a few pounds each although with the deals in Avon you can get 2 for £3 etc, I have bought for the same sort of price from eBay too.
One of the first things that strike's you about this product is the actual packaging. The Naturals range show off the ingredients in a very striking way. This Strawberry lip balm has delicious strawberries on the front, all glimmering and shiny almost edible really. The rest of the tube is a light pink colour, the colour the cream would go when mixed with the strawberries in fact, very clever Avon.
The twisty bit at the bottom and the lid are a white plastic, same colour as the cream. When you remove the lid, there is a heavy scent of strawberries and cream, it is defiantly the correct smell, the cream side just blends the edge off the strawberry scent but it is delicious. The lip balm itself is a red/pink colour and after twisting the bottom, you are ready to go. It glides over the lips well and isn't sticky or gluey. Although the colour of the product in the tube is quite striking, it doesn't appear on your lips with such a dramatic colour, you get a shiny covering with hardly any colour tinge at all. It is a lip balm after all not a lipstick/lipgloss. You can wear this under lipstick to moisten lips. I didn't have particularly chapped or flaky lips but using this product most days, my lips are very soft and kissable. Thanks Avon!
I always carry a lip balm wherever I go, I've got a bad habit of always licking my lips. I wouldn't say they ever get flakey, but sometimes they feel a little bit dry. With doing Avon, I seem to spend more money buying the latest products than actually earning any money. I especially like the Naturals range and lately they have brought a new flavour out. It is called strawberries and cream. They do a bubble bath, shower gel and of course a lip balm. The lip balm is just the standard size of any lip balm I've bought before. The slim like tube is attractive, showing delicious strawberries on the front. You just pull off the lid, wind it up from the bottom and apply. The balm is a pink colour which I suppose you expect seeing as though it is strawberry flavoured. The balm is lovely once applied. Straightaway you can taste the strawberries, it tastes that good you end up licking it all off again. Your lips feel moisturised, and maybe a little greasy but not half as bad as plain lip balms. It sells for £1.69 , but at times you can get 2 for £3.00 or even better 3 for £4.00. I think I will stock up on this one.
