After seeing so many people talking about the Balmi Lip Balms, a couple of months ago I decided to go and buy one for myself! They are £4.99 each and the only place I have seen them being sold is Boots, however they may be sold elsewhere (does anyone know?)
I have the Strawberry Balmi : you can also get Mint, Coconut and Raspberry. I absolutely love the Strawberry flavor and think that it smells exactly like Strawberry Calpol! Firstly I love the packaging for the Balmi's and think they are incredibly cute and fun! I also like how each flavor has its own colour so you know what you are getting. The Balmi has a little attachment on it so you can put it on your keys or anything really which is good as it means its harder to loose (I find I am always loosing lip balms?!)
There is 10.5g of the Balmi which lasts quite a while (depending on how much you use it) I have used mine most days since purchasing it and so far it is still pretty full. I find that putting it on just before I go to bed really helps my lips to feel smooth in the morning. When applying it in the morning I usually use my Popcorn Lip Scrub before putting it on and it helps to keep my lips moisturized throughout the day. It also has an SPF of 15 to help protect your lips.
The shape of the Balmi when it is opened is a circle which I love and is so easy to apply to the lips as it glides on and is especially easy to get into corners. It is also the perfect shape for the lips. When I first got it, I thought that it would go everywhere, but it doesn't! When you have used this product for quite a while, the shape does obviously change and becomes flatter and wider.
So far this lip balm has been amazing for my lips. It is quick drying but still leaves the lips silky soft and the smell and flavor really sticks around! I also find that my lips have been a lot less dry recently which is wonderful. They also don't get dry throughout the day which I love. I keep this lip balm in my bag to take round with me in case I feel my lips are looking and feeling dull and it really does help with both those things. I would definitely recommend this lip balm!
Lastly, the lip balm has an opening at the bottom which means you can get a lot more product out when it is coming to an end which I think is a great idea! All you have to do is pull the little attachment and it comes off, the good thing is that it is very strong so it doesn't fall off at all and you have to pull quite hard to get it out. I definitely want to try the other flavors of these Balmi's and will do soon hopefully. They are great for keeping the lips soft and soothed and I would repurchase any day!
