lipbalm! No, don't run to get your eyes checked because you read right! Yankee Candle has decided to make a product to appeal to makeup lovers out there! They now make flavored lipbalms that look like very miniature versions of their famous candles. Seems like such an odd product for a candle company to make, but if you ask me this is a very successful product.
I own this lipbalm in vanilla lime. First let's talk about packaging. Each lipbalm has .14oz of product. These have some of the cutest packaging I have ever seen in a lipbalm. They are a miniature version of their candle. The "top" of the jar is also the "top" of the lipbalm. You pull the entire top of the lipbalm off to access the product. The "base" of the jar is where you twist the lipbalm up. They are also such a great conversation starter. Imagine being at the office, at the mall, or walking down the street and pulling out something that looks like a mini candle and applying it to your lips. That will certainly start some sort of conversation!
The lipbalm comes in seven different flavors. The flavors are as follows:
- Black cherry
- Christmas cookie
- Juicy watermelon
- Sweet strawberry
- Vanilla cupcake
- Vanilla lime
Next, let's talk about ease of application. These lipbalms apply very smooth. One thing to note is that these lipbalms are slightly more "chunky" in size than a regular size lipbalm (such as a Blistex or a Chapstick). I find that it only takes one swipe to cover your whole lip. The lipbalm in vanilla lime tastes exactly like I imagined that scent would taste (Weird I know...who who think of tasting a candle?)
And of course, let's talk about the one thing everyone wants to know. Are these lipbalms good for your lips? Yes, yes, and yes! These days, I will not purchase a lipbalm without SPF in it. These lipbalms have an SPF of 15! They are made with lots of ingredients that have been proven to help moisturize lips such as extra virgin olive oil, vitamin E, beeswax, and rosemary.
So run to your nearest Yankee Candle store or their online website and pick a few of these up. They would make wonderful stocking stuffers!
