I was quite surprised by the tube format. I'm used to having the stick or round tin format, so this was a new one for me. The packaging is really pretty, and it's still nice and compact. I love the patterned packaging, and it also has a screw on lid, so there's no chance of it coming undone in my bag (you wouldn't believe how many times this has happened with other tube products that I own).
I was expecting this balm to have a creamy texture, but it's more like a clear gel, a little bit like lip gloss. It left my lips feeling very soft and smooth, and it also left a glossy finish. I can't decide if I like the glossiness of it yet. I tend to wear lip balm underneath lipstick quite a lot, and this isn't quite suitable for that. However it is perfect on days where you want some product on your lips without having to wear a lipstick. I suppose it's like a moisturing clear gloss.
You only need to use the smallest amount of this product, a little bit goes a long way. Too much of it can make your lips feel slick and a bit oily. It also smells divine, it's very sweet.
This lip balm is expensive but you only need the tiniest amount of it. I can see this tube lasting a very long time!
This lip balm costs £8.50 and can be bought from L'Occitane. Unfortunately it is a limited edition product.
In other news, I receieved my timetable for uni yesterday...So far I have two 9am starts, which isn't great since I'll have to be on the bus before 7:30, but luckily I have all the modules that I wanted for next year! It also means that I might be vanishing a little bit in October while I get adjusted, so bear with me!
What's your favourite lip balm?
