You guys know I carry a bunch of lip stuff in my purse. Well, that’s because I hate! dry, cracked lips. But, it has to taste good, or I won’t use it. Well, Chapstick understands that and is making sure I have a variety to choose from now.They have added 4 new flavors of lip balm with new flavors and a hint of shimmer, to boot. Two of the flavors are available now: “Botanical Berry” and “Tropical”, with “Peppermint Rush” and “Blended Fruit Sherbet” available in August.
As for the flavors, here is my breakdown:
“Botanical Berry” – very fruity, not overly of one fruit, like strawberry or anything, so that’s good, but I am not too much of a berry girl.
“Blended Fruit Sherbet” – reminded me of fruit punch, like at church socials or birthday party’s. Not too bad or overwhelming.
“Peppermint Rush” – tasted like a peppermint stick, but not tingly, like heavy in peppermint oil.
“Tropical” – this was my favorite. It smelled more coconutty than it tasted, but there was enough of a hint that I could feel like I was sipping a pina colada.
Now, the main downside of this is that there isn’t any SPF in it. So, I would rec using this when you go out in the evenings, as it gives a nice shimmer in the light, so you don’t have to worry about the suns rays, or use it before you go to bed as a taste treat so you don’t go get the dish of ice cream you know you are craving.
These retail for $2.79 at all your local stores and drugstores, so keep an eye out for them.
