“ Brand: Lypsyl / Texture: Cream / Type: Moisturiser / What it does: Moisturizes, „
I'll bet that no-one has as many lip balms as I do, and Lypsyl is one of the brands I use all the time as they make such a brilliant choice available and there is one out there to suit everyone. I also think they are great because they can be worn by either sex and there is nothing overly feminine about them, really, my hubby uses his own all the time and thinks nothing of it.
I bought this Lypsyl Honeyberry LypMoisturiser form the Poundshop for £1 (obviously) and it was in one of those buckets at the font of the shop, so it looked like they were trying to get rid of a lot of them.
This lip balms looks like any other in the range but it's slightly different when you have a look at it closer as there is a small little sliding button type thing down the side of the plastic tube which you slide up to release the oval shaped pale coloured lip balm. The top is green plastic and clips on well so it won't drop off in your bag.
This lip balm contains lots of lovely natural ingredients designed for hydrating and protecting your lips, including Swedish beeswax, Shea butter (organic), vitamins A & E and coconut oil. You can probably imagine the delicious smell this lip balm has and as it contains so many lovely natural ingredients, I'm not so worried about applying it to my lips and swallowing bits of it.
I was actually surprised by the very subtle tingling sensation that this gives my lips when I have first applied it. This begins to wear off after a little while but when it is first applied it is noticeable. It adds a lovely sheen to my lips and I wear it both on its own and over the top of a lipstick. It lasts for ages before it needs to be reapplied and it really does soften my cracked and chapped lips and it also prevents then from being weather beaten if I go out in the cold or windy weather. It doesn't feel thick and waxy, in fact it just feels very light and natural and I hardly notice it's there, once it's on.
I haven't been able to find any more of this particular lip balm lately so I am wondering if it was old stock and they have stopped making it. It would be a shame if that were the case as it really is a lovely one to use and it works so well.
If I can find any more then I will buy another tube for sure, but for now all I can say is I do recommend it highly and I'll continue to look out for more.
This is a review of Lypsyl Honeyberry LypMoisturiser which is a new one I had never heard of before spotting it locally in the shops. It was another of those 'dry lips in town' moments when you have around 50 lip balms at home but none with you in your bag or pockets!
The Lypsyl brand is one is I have known for years with my mum always opting for the blue 'original' flavour of lip balm. To me that one was a bit greasy and cakey with a strange flavour to it but it has obviously been around for a number of years. With the honeyberry I was attracted to the packaging which was cardboard wrapped so you knew it was sealed and untried in the shop. The actual tube is really well designed with a slidey button on the side that has a tiny plastic bee that you push upwards to get the tube out of the plastic stick. The lid is olive green and clicks on audibly so you know it is secure when on.
What is it?
Aside from being a lip balm or 'lypmoisturiser' going with the Lypsyl branding, the lipbalm is promoted as organic shea butter, vitamins A & E and coconut oil. The back of the pack shows all the benefits of the ingredients, with honeybenny for fragrance and flavour, coconut oil for moisturising properties, organic shea butter which heals and protects and vitamins A&E for softening and healing effects. It really does have everything in it you'd want in a lip balm and remains quite natural and non chemical.
Made with pure Swedish beeswax, the lip balm helps moisturise, soften and protect your lips naturally. With over 100 years in Swedish lip care, Lypsyl knows how to bring out your natural beauty.
Price and size
A tube is 2.8g which I suppose is average for a tube of lip balm. Price wise, I got it from the 99p shop so you can guess the rest!
When you first open up the tube you notice the balm is oval shaped and it is easy to slide up the product. It glides on the lips and feels nice with a slight tingly sensation and is not at all waxy on the lips. The balm lasts for around an hour before you notice it is all gone but eating and drinking will reduce the amount of time it lasts. You can't really see that you have got this product on but it feels nice and moisturised and will stop any picking of dry lips that can annoy you.
I think this is a great lip balm, especially for the price. I am enjoying using it and my daughter loves to have a bit on her lips too when she sees me using it. The packaging says 'new' on it but I don't know when it was released, or if it was actually a flop as it ended up in the 99p shop. On the Lypsyl website there is a few pages dedicated to this product, including celebrity endorsements (don't know who they are though!). I also learned that you can get a more liquid version of the lip balm and another tube had a SPF 15 in it too so would be great for holidays or warmer weather. I like the fact that the lip balm is made of natural and organic ingredients as it is likely that a product you wear on your lips will get ingested too.
I think this was well worth the price paid and I would be happy to repurchase in the future, not that I need any more lip balms as I always seem to buy but never finish them! I think this may be a little bit difficult to find out in the shops once my local supplier runs out as the 99p shop doesn't tend to stock lines permanently.
