This is a product I received in my Birchbox a few months ago, and I realized that I never let you all know what I think. I also realized that I spent the entire day not writing my paper nor updating my blog. College….
Anyway, this product comes in a small pot (keep in mind this sample is half (?) a full-size). I was excited because I had never used a lip product in a pot. They always seemed glamorous. I have no idea why I thought that… maybe because I only ever used Lip Smackers as a kid? I don’t know. It actually turns out that it is a huge pain in the butt. Getting the product onto your finger is not a problem, but it doesn’t seem to want to rub onto the lips. It took way too long to apply for me. Also, I reacted quite badly to the formula. It turns out that I have sensitive lips and the majority of lip balms cause me to break out around my mouth… talk about glamorous. However, it did work. My lips were much more hydrated while using this product.
Would I repurchase it? No. Would I recommend it? Yes. If you don’t have sensitive lips and if you do have patience.
What are your favorite lip products?
P.S. I should mention that this flavor, Pomegranate and Fig, is exclusive to Birchbox. I also believe it is organic, but I don’t know for sure.
