Lipbalms :)

I've never came across anyone on youtube talking about lipbalms in general, so I thought it would be great to give my opinion on them. I thought this would be an appropriate time to discuss these because about two days ago there was a chopping block scare. You know when they go to discontinue scents? ALL the solid perfumes were on the fond farewell's page. I was like "I HAVE TO MAKE A VIDEO NOW TO LET PEOPLE KNOW!" So now that the scare is over, i can now plan out what I have to say.

I don't have many of these because just recently, about five months ago, they lowered the prices of the lip balms. with the lip balms, they used to cost about $8.95 and went down to $6.95

First off, I never taste anything from the lip balms.
My favorite is Honey Trap, it's got the same scent as Mange too massage bar as well as chox away soap. To me, it smells sort of playdoughy as well as minty. As you know, scents alter within products, so some products won't smell the same as others, but essentially their the same scent. The ingredients include oat infusion, almond oil, peppermint oil, white chocolate, olive oil, wheatgerm oil, honey, sweet orange oil and vanilla absolute. The texture is very thick for me, almost like lemony flutter. I personally feel that this lip balm is very long lasting for me as well as moisturizing. I can put it on during the night, and I can still feel it in the morning. I do feel that my lips get sort of tingly, due to the peppermint oil in it. The bad thing about it though is that I don't wear it out because like I've always said, I don't like scents that other people can smell or I feel like they're judging me thinking I smell or something :S

Next is Chocolate Whipstick. Chocolate whipstick is supposed to smell like "chocolate oranges" but to me it smells like a Tootsie Roll. It's got similar ingredients to Honey trap, excluding the peppermint oil and it includes tangerine oil, orange oil and cocoa absolute. It goes to show how little ingredients to alter the scent and texture of a product. In my opinion the texture of this is much like mousse, and it doesn't really glide on to my fingers like other lip balms do, but it comes in a clump. It does leave your lips sort of brown tinted, but not "pure brown". I don't like this one for the reason that for me, it's hard to apply. For the time being on my lips, it is moisturizing and slick, but when it starts to wear off, it dries up my lips.

None of your beeswax is the second vegan lip balm that i've tried from lush. the first being let them eat cake which was the first. It's extra virgin coconut oil, fresh lemon infusion, mandarin oil and vanilla absolute. It's got a scent like a dreamsicle but lemon scented. Similar to each peach massage bar. The one reason I hate using vegan lip balms is because they both have an abrasive texture. Probably because the melting and cooling process is different, but I don't like anything that is abrasives on my lips, besides lip scrubs. I find that it defeats the purpose of being a lip balm because if your lips are being exfoliated, wouldn't you have to wipe the product off? I find it annoying, so that's why I don't use this one too much.

Lite lip lip balm. I only got this because they were being discontinued and the first ingredient is a marshallow herb. In it is Apricot kernel oil, corn oil, olive oil, rose absolute, I find this one to be more like a gloss, than a real balm. It gives off a slick feeling, but it doesn't moisturize my lips heavily.
