Valentine’s day is racing up upon us and so it’s time to crack out all the lip balms and put one in each handbag, coat pocket and car glove compartment, in preparation for Cupid and his trusty arrow.
Lip Balm Loss
Now is it just me who usually buys twenty thousand lip balms over the course of the year and loses them almost (if not) immediately? Only for them to reappear eighteen months later covered in fluff and chewed on slightly, by what you can only hope was your cat.
So you can only imagine my delight when the wonderful ladies over at Lypsyl sent me their whole range. Seven little tubes of lip licking scents, that means with my track record of lip balm loss, they should keep me stocked up for four months.
We have got –
Uplifting Strawberry and Pomegranate
Revitalising Cherry & Almond
Invigorating SPF15 Mint and Fennel
Refreshing SPF15 Cucumber & Aloe
Sensual SPF15 Coconut & Almond
SPF15 The Original
SPF 50 with Vanilla
These light and non-greasy formulas contain a blend of natural Shea and Cocoa butter, Avocado Oil, Beeswax, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E. So super hydrating for the lips, but you will need to reapply quite frequently, which really isn’t a big deal when your basting your lips in such yumminess.
What really excites me (well as much as any lip balm can) is their newly launched compact lip balms!
They come in a matte, almost rubber-like packaging, that really floats my boat. Inside each little compact is nine grams of lip balm, and a nifty little mirror, that’s the perfect lip size,

*(I have to take a minute here for this one. My fave of the bunch, this smells like what I can only imagine what Polly Pocket would smell like in real life. So delicate, sweetly fragranced and soft. This is not sweet enough to be Barbie, but gentle enough to be Polly. Your gonna have to go with me on that one guys.)
With all the benefits of the original tube formulas and that sexy matte packaging that will appeal to almost all beauty junkies, these little compacts make for a great, throw it in your handbag and go.
