[unpaid/sample] The brand says ‘a duo of our nourishing lip balms – a perfect treat for the friend who’s always losing theirs..’ and never a truer word! Lip balms are like biros in the disappearing stakes – I split my Sisley balm into two pots and of course, one has gone missing and OF COURSE it was the one with the most in it. Somewhere out there in the universe is a lost balm mountain…
So, ‘handy’ is the right word for this gift kit containing a plain and a mojito lip balm. I like these better than stick balms – they’ve got slanted tips for easy application and and the mojito option is like a sweet mint which is vastly preferable to the more aggressive peppermints that ruin your coffee for the rest of the day.
The plain version is fragrance free (yay). In terms of ‘shine’ – it’s a low sheen so there’s no glossy effect, just a freshly moisturised look. As ever, Malin + Goetz has nailed the packaging making it look bright and cheery with no obvious ‘festive’ look which I really like .. it’s a kind of Christmas-neutral stance which leaves all options open.
