I just bought this lip balm recently and have to say I absolutely love it!
In general, when it comes to lip balm I would consider myself a huge junkie. Not only do I own various brands, but I have at least one lip balm lying around pretty much everywhere! (tables, pockets, bags, etc.).
The first thing that I like about this product has to be its smell- DELICIOUS! It smells like strawberries and cream and just reminds me of my childhood for some reason.
The second thing I like is the product itself. This lip balm is soo moisturizing! The tin comes with .8oz of product which will end up lasting you a long time since you only need a little bit. I've read that you can use this balm on other dry parts of your body, but I rather just stick to lotion for that lol.
The lip balm also has a slight tint to it and gives a nice subtle glossy effect :)
Although the gold tin is unique (kind of reminds me of those antique looking tins), I would have to say I do not really like the packaging for the purposes of a lip balm.
The main reason is for sanitary reasons- I do not like sticking my finger in the product and then putting it on my lips. You could definitely use a lip brush if you really wanted, but let's be honest: lip balm is for on-the-go people! We don't want precise application of it.
For those who are like me and don't want to take an extra step, you can just swirl your lips in the tin and put on the lip balm that way. Works just as well!
I bought mine from Sephora for $9.50CAN. If you're interested you can check out the Sephora website below:
