Chapstick Apple Lip Balm
Advantages: Keeps lips moist, tastes lovely
I go through a lot of lib balms during the colder months. Not just to keep my lips moist and refreshed, but because they taste so good too! One of the lip balms I'm using this year is this Apple Chapstick.
Chapstick lip balms are widely available to purchase from supermarkets and chemists. I paid around £1 for mine from my local Boots. There isn't any substantial packaging to them, they come simply wrapped in a transparent plastic wrapper. Occasionally they come packaged on a small piece of cardboard too, I have no idea why some are just wrapped in plastic and some come on cardboard!
To use the lip balm you simply pull the top off from the top of the tube then twist the bottom and the lip balm will be revealed, just like a lip stick. The lip balm has a very light green colour to it and also smells like apples as soon as you open the lid. It doesn't smell like apples solely and has more of an apple sweet type smell to it.
As the colour of the lip balm is light green I was a little worried that after application it would leave a pale green colour on my lips but I was wrong. Once applied it just gives a nice shiny appearance. The lip balm is easy to apply and doesn't have the greasy type feeling you can get with some other brands. It also smooth's over my lips well and doesn't clump in areas once applied.
The one thing I really like about lip balms is the taste, there is nothing better than rubbing your lips together to get a taste of whatever you are wearing. The apple property of this lip balm is nice and it does taste like apple. The taste isn't in your face but at the same time the subtleness is nice as it does have a very sweet taste to it.
I tend to reapply as soon as the taste has gone so do end up reapplying quite a few times each day, despite using it so much there is still loads of lip balm left and I am confident it will last the colder months without running out.
For only a pound, I think this Chapstick apple lip balm is definitely worth it. It is clear once applied, keeps lips moist and tastes lovely. Recommended!
