I was browsing around boots the other day, as you do, when I came to the boots natural collection. I stopped to look at all the different bodysprays, bodywashes, face masks and all the other things they do. I wanted to treat myself to something using my advantage card points that I had saved up. I had 243 points on my card, so I would be able to buy something for £2.43 or less. I looked down to the bottom shelf and there were a range of lip balms for £2.30 each. So this is what I treated myself to. Boots natural collection strawberry lip balm. The lip balm comes in a small plastic tub with a screw on top. The tub is see through, so you can see the pinky/red colour of the lip balm. The packaging is very simple, it is just a plain tub apart from one small round sticker on the lid which shows seven red lips in the shape of a flower. The tub contains 8g. When you unscrew the lid and take it off you can immediately smell the strawberry fragrance. It is only subtle so it is not too strong. A little sticker on the underneath of the tub tells you that it is a moisturising lip balm blended with the scent of luscious strawberries which helps to leave your lips deliciously soft and smooth. You apply a layer to your lips with the fingertips or a brush. I found it very easy to use this lip balm.I used my finger to apply it and it goes onto your lips smoothly and you can feel your lips are softer almost immediately and it leaves them with a lovely shine. Just perfect for going out. Will people be able to resist those shiny lips? The softness of the lip balm lasted on my lips for about 3 or 4 hours before I needed to reapply it. Well I liked this lip balm. It is available in other flavours but I haven’t tried them yet.And with christmas coming up it will make a nice little present.Hint Hint. Thankyou for reading.
This lipbalm is one of a range of 2-colour swirl lipbalms that come in small clear pots. The one I have is Peppermint flavour and is very tasty! It is not as durable as other lipbalms - like Palmers, as I suspect its selling power is down to aesthetics and flavour. I use this one over my others due to its flavour. It does work as a lipbalm although I warn if you have chapped lips then Peppermint can be very stingy to apply! It is not a healing lip balm - I find it works simply for moisturising on unchapped, uncut lips. Having said this it is an effective moisturiser - if you can resist licking it off! The Peppermint tingles on your lips after application and makes them feel kind of cold and alive. It is good value at £1.20 and can be carried around in the bottom of your bag. I tend to have different makes of lipbalms and store them in different places - work, bag, home and jacket pocket, so I always have one to hand. It can be a little slidy to apply and I prefer stick aplicators as you have to apply this with your fingers and that can be messy. But a great stocking filler, due to the packaging and two-tone colour swirl effect.
