I got this as a gift, it isn't something I would usually buy.
The first thing I noticed about this is when I tried to squeeze out the product it is quite hard to. Not sure if I just have dodgy one, but I do need to squeeze it really hard.
The smell is pleasant and not too over powering.
When I first applied this my lips got really dry, so the next time I put it on I put some lipsalve on first and then it was okay-ish. I would say this is not hydrating, so if you have dry lips, then don't bother.
The colour is sheer, so it gives your lips a nice shine and gloss too them. This isn't as gloopy as many other "lip-glosses". But it is a tad sticky; so not good in windy weather (hair stuck on your lips isn't a good look)
I will be throwing this away, as I just can not use it up. It is far to hard to get the product out the tube, plus it is just too drying on my lips.
I really like Soap & Glory skin care products but I've not really tried many of their cosmetics so when I was given this lip balm last Christmas I was quite excited to try it out and I had pretty high expectations! It retails at £8 which isn't too expensive in my opinion considering that it does live up to the claims and it is good quality.
It's a lip plumping lip balm full of moisturising ingredients and not just an average run of the mill one hence the price! The lip balm comes in a clear tube made from a soft, easily squeezable plastic type of material and the bright pink lip balm can be seen through the tube. I am not too keen in the clear packaging as it looks a bit cheap in my opinion but the packaging overall is alright.
The tube has a silver screw on lid which is easy to remove and it screws back in securely so there's no worry that the lid will come off and make a mess! The lip balm has a rounded slanted plastic nozzle thingy which the lip balm comes out of, but I prefer to just squeeze a little onto my finger and apply it that way.
The colour of the lip balm is a dark shade of pink and this is the only colour available. When it's on my lips it looks natural and it suits my skin tone perfectly, it doesn't make my lips look washed out but the colour isn't bright or very noticeable, it just gives a nice hint of rosiness to my lips. The balm looks a lot glossier than I expected considering that this is actually a lip balm and not a lip gloss but I do really like the glossy look of it as it makes my lips look really moisturised and my lips continue to feel hydrated for a few hours after I first use it.
It also makes them feel moisturised as well as soft and smooth and it makes them look healthier and well cared for. If I apply too much it can feel a bit greasy and gloopy on my lips but only a very small amount is needed each time I use it. The lip balm as I said is a lip plumping balm and it does definitely work! At first my lips feel really tingly, then a little numb but after five or so minutes they feel normal again and they definitely look slightly fuller and bigger - it's a subtle difference but enough of a difference for me to notice.
I am not left with huge, pouty lips but I am pleased with the results. Another thing I like about the lip balm is the smell as its really sweet and girly - it smells like vanilla. The lip balm leaves my lips feeling moisturised and looking glossy pretty much all day and it only needs re-applying now and again. All in all I'd definitely recommend this lip balm as it does plump my lips up a little and it makes them feel and look soft, smooth and moisturised.
It's a little expensive but I only need a really small amount each time I use it and my 12ml tube which I have had for five months will last me for at least another five or six months. I overall give this product five out of five stars.
WHAT IS IT?
Lip balm from Soap & Glory that says it will hydrate the lips and plump them also.
Mighty Mouth comes in a slim pink tube that is easy to squeeze out the lip balm. The end of the tube is slanted so when I apply it I can cover my lips very easy using it. I think it is a very good tube but the lid is very awkward because it is so tiny and I am afraid I am going to lose it.
THE LIP BALM
It is creamy and quite thick so that when I put it on my lips it feels like a quality lip balm. The smell and taste is of vanilla but I think that it smells stronger than it tastes and I am glad for that because i do not like the taste very much and I would not to be able to taste it stronger. It has got a very sweet and feminine fragrance that I like very much and I think it is good that I can smell it on my lips for a long time after I've used the lip balm.
WHAT I THINK
Mighty Mouth lip balm has been effective for me and it makes my lips feel soft and smooth even when the weather is very cold. I have not used it when my lips are damaged or chapped so I do not know how good it would be if I had problems with my lips already, I do not think it would solve lip skin problems because it is not strong enough in texture but it keeps my lips soft when they are in good condition to start with.
I like the feel of it on my lips because most of it sinks in and it is not greasy, it is only creamy and it feels like a good quality lip balm. It does not make my lips shiny and that is good because I sometimes just want to protect my lips and not make them glossy.
I do not think that my lips look plump after I have used this lip balm but that does not matter because I did not think it would happen. The most important thing is that it keeps my lips soft and smooth and i use it as a base under my lipstick sometimes also but I leave it for a few minutes before I apply lipstick to make sure that my lips are properly dry.
I think this lip balm is expensive because £8 is a lot of money for a little item like this. I got mine in a set for Christmas and it has just runned out today so that is 4 months for £8 but I only use it a few times every week so that is not as good as it sounds.
4 Dooyoo Stars.
My lips are often getting dry and cracked, whether it is the winter or the summer. Our lips are covered in skin which can't moisturise itself and so it needs a helping hand. That's why I am always buying new lip products in a bid to do so. My newest one is called Mighty Mouth by Soap & Glory which I got on a 3 for 2 Boots offer.
What does the product do?
The product is a moisturising lip gloss which promises to provide the lips with extreme hydration. It has a glossy finish and it contains collagen so due to a plumping effect your lips should look fuller, prettier and in a better condition.
How do you use the product?
The product is to be used in the same way as a normal lip gloss. It is to be applied to clean, dry lips as often as required. If can also be applied over the top of your usual lipstick to make it look glossy but you may not get the plumping and moisturising effects when it is used in this way.
Packaging and Price
The product comes contained within a cute clear plastic tube which has a screw top lid. The product inside is baby pink which gives the tube the appearance of being the same colour. Mighty mouth is written on the tube in big letters but the tube does lack the retro feel that usually accompanies Soap & Glory products. It has a slanted tip so that the product can easily be applied to the lips. The lip product costs £8 for 12ml and it can be bought from Boots or from the online Soap & Glory website.
Aroma and Appearance
The product is a gorgeous pink colour and it has the appearance and consistency of a gloss. The colour doesn't completely translate to the lips so don't panic about it being too bright. You are left with pretty much the normal colour of your lips. The aroma of the product is very sweet and right up my street. You can smell it for a little while after application but not for long.
In order to dispense the product, you just give the tube a gentle squeeze to release the balm/gloss. Once you have got some of the product on the tip, you can then smooth the applicator across the lips. The shape of the tip means that you get a good all over coverage of the balm. It smoothes onto the lips easily and it feels comfortable, if a little sticky. The balm does give a slightly tingly sensation to the lips but it is nothing compared to that of a normal lip plumping product. A little bit goes a long way so you don't need to overdo the application.
The product really is more of a gloss than a balm. It has the same thickness of a gloss so it does feel slightly heavy on the lips and it does make your lips a little sticky. It doesn't really change the colour of the lips but it does make them a tiny bit more pink. It does give your lips a lovely glossy and shiny finish. It hydrates the lips well and my lips do feel smooth and soft once this has been removed. I can't say I noticed that my lips got any fuller but they do look pretty and in a good condition. The gloss doesn't hang around if you're eating or drinking and I'd say that it has the staying power of a few hours.
All in all, this is a great moisturising product if you are a fan of lip glosses. If you are after a lip balm then this will be too sticky and heavy for you and if you want a lip plumping product, you won't get it with this. It smells lovely, adds a lovely touch of pink to the lips, keeps them hydrated and make the lips look in a good condition. It didn't make me fall in love but it is a pretty nice lip product.
Despite being the most expensive lip balm that I have ever purchased I found myself picking up another one just last weekend! I'm a big fan of the soap and glory range after receiving various gift sets for Christmas one year. I don't usually buy individual soap and glory products as I do find that they are highly priced but for this product inparticular I make an exception.
The lip balm is tall and is candy pink in colour it comes with a screwable lid which stops the product from spilling out. It has metallic text emblazoned upon it which makes the packaging girly and eyecatching. The tube is very appealing to the eye and even looks expensive which I like about the product.
Inside the tube is the lipbalm it is light pink in colour and looks slightly shimmery which was immediately appealing to me. It looks on the lips exactly how it does in the tube and gives a light shimmer and a tint of a pink colour. Sometimes I even apply the lipbalm over the top of various shades of lipstick and always find that it gives just the right amount of shine and colour. The smell of the lipgloss is quite sweet and I think that it smells like a fruity kind of sweet the smell isn't overwhelming but you can smell it as soon as you apply it to the lips. It tastes a little bit how it smells to so if you are tempted to lick your lips whilst wearing this lipgloss then you're in for a treat ;)
After wearing the lip balm, even though I think it is more like a lipgloss!, my lips do feel softer and replenished and when my lips have been dry they do feel moisturised and the cracks ease up on my lips which is of great benefit to me. The lipbalm also has a lip pumping effect as it contains collagen, I have always been sceptical of the lip pumping effect of high street lip products and this product does little to change my mind - I didn't see any obvious lip pumping effects during or after using this product.
One major disadvantage to this lip balm is that it is very sticky and my hair always gets caught in it which is annoying and makes my hair sticky and my lip balm smudge but other than that issue, which is an issue with most lip products, I find little else wrong with this product.
This lip balm is £8 from Boots which is very steep but I love the unique colour and sparkle that this lipgloss leaves, I do use it sparingly so this lipbalm is just a little treat every now and again!
I got Soap and Glory Mighty Mouth Lip Balm as a Christmas Present this year, which I was rather pleased with as I am a real Soap and Glory fan and am also a real lip balm addict as I like to keep something close by at all times as my lips can dry up very quickly in the cold weather.
This lip balm comes in a squeezy tube which has a flat top, so application is quite easy, though I find sometimes I squeeze too much out and this makes application a little messy sometimes.
This lip balm has a lovely vanilla smell and taste to it, but the smell isn't too strong that it is sickening.
It is tinted light pink to make it easier to blend it into your lips, I quite liked the pink glossy tint that it gave my lips and found that if I didn't use too much of this lip balm at one time, it looked quite nice and natural looking with just a little shine.
What I Thought
I wasn't as impressed with this lip balm as I expected, I found that it felt quite sticky on my lips and although my lips felt moisturised while I was wearing it, when it wore off through the day, my lips did start to feel drier and less lush than I had expected when I applied this.
Also I don't really like the squeezy tube, I find it is a little messier than roll up lip balm tubes.
I did like the tint and smell on this lip balm and it does look good when applied, however I have been equally impressed with cheaper brands of lip balm, so I don't think that it is worth while purchasing this more expensive lip balm.
Price and Availability
You can buy Soap and Glory Mighty Mouth Lip Balm for £8 in Boots, which is a very high price for a lip balm in my opinion, I don't think I would have ever owned this if it wasn't bought to me as a present. I think that there are lots of better quality lip balms on the market for much cheaper than this one.
Overall I wasn't really impressed with this lip balm, it looks and smells nice when applied but it feels a sticky and can be messy to apply. I would give this lip balm 2 out of 5 stars I think it is far to expensive and not worth £8. I think that there are lots of other lip balms on offer at the moment that are better value for money.

I have been a huge fan of soap and glory products for some time now, so when christmas came and I had a selection made up for me from my Mum I was delighted! Within the selection was one of these Mighty Mouth Lip Balm.
This item used to come in a 'set' which had a 3-step system to soft lips, however it is now avaliable on its own like this. Now it comes on its own as just the 'lip balm' though to me the packaging to looks more as if it is a lip gloss due to the fact it is in a squeezy tube within a box.
This item is avaliable from Boots and is avaliable from ASOS, however, they seem to stock soap and glory products more so at christmas time. For 12ml of the lip balm (which is the only size it comes in) will cost you £8, which to me seems quite expensive for a lip balm compared to the liks of Nivea, Vaseline and Carmex which cost little more then a pound or two.
To use you simply squeeze the tube in order for a small amount of the lip balm to come out through a small hole. The applicator is on a slight slant which makes it easier to apply smoothly across the lips. The lip balm itself is slightly coloured, it is a very natural pink/ peach colour which doesn't really add much colour to your lips but just emphasises the colour already there.
To apply the lip balm does not seem sticky like a lip gloss, however does definitley have the texture of a lip gloss more so than a lip balm as it is very smooth to apply and is slightly more 'liquidy' than a lip balm.
One thing I really liked was the scent of this lip balm, it had a very light fruity, yet sweet smell. It was not at all overpowering and was in fact quite subtle. It smelt very similar to many of the 'grapefruit' flavoured Soap & Glory products, however it was a much sweeter and lighter scent than these.
Once applied I did find that is seemed to be softening my lips and smoothing them out, however, I do not believe it has many properties of a lip balm and is in fact more of a lip gloss. This is due to the fact that I did not find it nourishing or moisturising on the lips and even though my lips felt softer whilst wearing it as soon as the lip gloss had worn off so did these effects and even after a week of two the condition of my lips had not improved and it did not seem to make any difference.
I did like the overall look of the lip balm once on though as it had a very subtle gloss to it look, so the lips looked soft and shiny, yet did not have that overall sticky gloss look that come sometimes look a little tacky. As said preivously, the colour is a pale peach / pink, so although it did not add much colour it gave my natural lip colour more depth and evened out the tone.
Overall, I did like this item as it felt light on the lips, was non greasy and had a nice colour to it, however, as a lip balm I feel that it does not do its job. This is because it only soften and smoothens the lips whilst the lip balm is on and does definitley not go as far as nourishing or moisturising the lips.
As winter is setting in my skin is starting to feel the effects and as usual, I'm sporting dry chapped lips. As a busy mum of two toddlers I do try to take care of my lips and I also like to wear some form of lip product, however I have to steer away from lipgloss and I tend to find myself leaving the house with glossy lips yet 10 seconds later I find my long hair is stuck to my lips whilst I'm busy struggling with my double pushchair. So I tend to prefer lip balm products. The lip balm products I owned from last winter had ran out and although I found these products effective I couldn't justify the £13 price tag that some of the premium skincare brands charged so I decided to look for a more mid-priced lip balm and purchased the Soap and Glory Mighty Mouth lip balm.
***Soap and Glory Mighty Mouth Lip Balm***
The Soap and Glory Mighty Mouth Lip Balm is described as "an extreme hydrating lip balm".
The description on the packaging outlines that it has "Xlarge Collagen and Plump Peptide complex" to help smooth, hydrate and condition the lips to provide long term anti-wrinkle benefits because this complex boosts circulation to lips.
The product contains over 70% moisturising actives to give lips condition and shine. The Soap and Glory Mighty Mouth Lip Balm has a vanilla flavour and is slightly tinted with "naked pink" to enhance natural lip colour.
The Soap and Glory Mighty Mouth Lip Balm is available from Boots and a 12ml tube costs £8. Therefore this is not a cheap lip balm but it is not as expensive as premium skin care brands.
The Soap and Glory Mighty Mouth Lip Balm comes in cardboard packaging. In all honesty I did not look very closely at the product and after reading the outer cardboard packaging which is pink coloured and has the usual retro style Soap and Glory branding on I decided to purchase the product. Once I got the lip "balm" out of the shop I opened the packaging and noticed inside that the Mighty Mouth comes is a squeezable pink tube very much like a LIP GLOSS! The tube is clear and has a pink tinted liquid inside. Might Mouth is written in large font on the tube and the product has a screw off lip in which you apply the "lip balm" to your lid using the applicator nozzle.
When I came to apply to my lips I simply squeezed the tube and then ran the nozzle over my lips to spread the "lip balm". Although the consistency of the balm liquid is more gel like rather than runny like a lip gloss I still do not feel this is a balm. The lip gel is very easily spread onto lips, therefore you only need to use a very small dot of product as this goes a long way. If you use too much liquid balm on your lips you end up with a very sticky mess. As you spread onto your lips you can notice the vanilla scent which is quite a strong sickly sugary smelling vanilla.
The immediate result on lips from the Soap and Glory Mighty Mouth Lip Balm is very shiny looking lips. The appearance of the lips is not as super shiny and wet looking as some lip glosses but lips are left with a definite wet looking gloss look to them, rather than a shimmery look that balm leaves.
Colour wise I feel my lips did not really have any additional colour to them despite this claiming to be a tinted product. In the tube the product looks quite pink but on lips it looks virtually clear. I do feel that the Soap and Glory Mighty Mouth Lip Balm enhances natural lip colour so my lip looked a healthy pink colour because of the shine but I think this is the same effect as a clear lip gloss product.
I tend to find after using lip balms my lips have a very slight greasy, balm type feel to them but after using the Soap and Glory Mighty Mouth Lip Balm my lips felt quite wet and sticky. Once applied the product stays on lips for around an hour if you are not eating and drinking (if so it requires re -application) but I did feel because of the stickiness it is quite messy. This was bought to wear on my lips to protect from the cold winter weather. Living in the North East of England, blustering winds is part of winter and because of the gloss like consistency I would find my hair stuck to my lips as the Soap and Glory Mighty Mouth Lip Balm seems to attract my hair to it, which doesn't happen with a conventional lip balm!
When you apply to lips you can feel a tingling sensation so I would agree with the claims that it may help to boost circulation in lips. Because I have only used this product for 6 weeks I can't say that the lip balm has had anti-aging effects like the packaging claims.
I would definitely agree that the product moisturises lips. My lips when I first started using this lip balm were chapped dry and flaking. After wearing and applying at least twice a day for 3 days I found my lips were left smooth, soft and shiny and all traces of dry cracked skin on my lips had vanished. I was extremely pleased with these results but did feel disappointed that I could bought a lip balm half the price from a brad like Nivea or Carmex which would have had the same results. I also felt a traditional style lip balm would have allowed me greater flexibility to wear when venturing outside for long winter walks and feel like I was protecting my lips.
The Soap and Glory Mighty Mouth Lip Balm is a product that I would definitely not recommend and I feel is massively overpriced with its £8.00 price tag. I did like that the lip balm has a very slight natural pint hint to it however this is only very light and I probably would not really consider this as a "coloured" lip balm.
The product does effectively moisturise lips and keep them hydrated so I am pleased to say my lips recovered from their dry, cracked chapped state and were healthy soft and smooth looking within 3 days of using Mighty Mouth. However for £8.00 I would have expected more from this product especially as cheaper brands costing half the price such as Carmex and Nivea have the same effect on lips.
My main criticism of this "lip balm" is that it is less of a balm and more of a gloss which can create a sticky mess. I chose this product for the balm properties to ensure that on blustery days I avoided the hair stuck to lips look that you get from gloss, but because of the shiny, sticky, glossy consistency of this product I feel that it's actually more of a moisturising lip gloss!
A mighty messy (moisturised) mouth from Soap and Glory!
I've been rather good recently and have avoided splurging out on any "unnecessary" make up products for quite a while now. However I somehow gave in to temptation last month in Boots and purchased a Soap and Glory product... well if I'm being honest I purchased three but as they were on a three for two offer I don't think it really classes as a splurge... more of a saving in a sense! One of the products I bought was the Mighty Mouth Lip Balm... a fitting name some might say!
The product comes in a familiar pink colour in a squeezable tube that has a screw on lid on the top. The product has Mighty Mouth written on it in silvery writing and feels quite sturdy - some squeezable tubes often feel like they might split or be easily pierced but not this one! It also comes in a pink cardboard box, presumably to make it look a little neater on the shelves. The box clearly shows the brand name, the product name and some basic information on the product too.
The lip balm is like a gel in terms of its viscosity and is tinted pink in colour - this colour isn't overly evident when put on my lips though. It's a little bit sticky although not as sticky as some lip glosses I've come across and despite it being advertised as a lip balm it does have quite a glossy finish to it. The lip balm smells quite sweet and there are clear hints of marshmallows and vanilla as well. Overall it gives a healthy, glossy glow to my lips with just a slightly sticky residue.
So what's special about this product? Well it's advertised as having X Large Collagen Plump Peptide Complex built into it which apparently helps to smooth, hydrate and condition the lips while providing long term anti-wrinkle action as well - sounds amazing doesn't it! It also contains a stimulating active (whatever that might be) to help boost circulation in the lips and which also results in a very light tingling sensation... no near as intense as their famous Mother Pucker!
This is advertised as a lip balm and I'd give it four out of five stars in terms of its lip balm properties as it does moisturise my lips well and the effects do last but it doesn't provide deep relief to chapped lips sadly. In terms of a lip gloss I'd give it three out of five stars as it gives my lips a glossy finish that isn't too obvious but it does make them a little sticky as well really which is a shame. As for the pink colour I'd only give that one or two stars but the taste is divine!
The Soap and Glory Mighty Mouth Lip Balm currently retails at £7.00 in Boots, although due to the save a third offer that is currently running it's priced at a much more appealing £4.67 for 12ml of the product. The tingling sensation takes a while to get used to but it's not unpleasant, the effects are fairly good but not brilliant and as for the "naked pink" colour well... I'd have to argue it really is "naked" in that you can't see it at all! Four out of five stars from me!
Thanks for reading.
