I recently finished a product, and it came to mind that bloggers review products after just one or two uses–we never usually get the opinion of someone who has finished a product. Your thoughts can change about something as you come to the end and have used it for a few weeks or months.
So, I thought I’d share with you my thoughts on the Lyss Cosmetics Lip Balm in Strawberry because I’ve just this second finished the entire tube. I bought this online from the Lyss Cosmetics store as the business was just beginning. Visiting the website now, it’s great to see loads more products to buy. You can choose from lip glosses, skin care and lip care.
The lip balm itself comes in two flavours, peppermint and strawberry. I ordered both, and I’ve kept the strawberry flavour on my desk at work to use during the day. The peppermint flavour is in my makeup bag, so I can apply it as and when I’m at home.
The product is super moisturising. I suffer from quite dry lips, which isn’t helped by the air conditioning at work and in the gym, and the cold weather. Having this lip balm on hand has saved me on multiple occasions where my lips have been dry to the point of cracking, or I’ve been picking at the dry skin to the point of bleeding (oops!). The flavouring isn’t too overpowering, which I like. A few products focus on making flavouring the statement, when they should really be working on making their formula great. Lyss Cosmetics has hit the nail on the head here.
The packaging is super sleek and simple, which fits with the Lyss branding completely. Everything looks clean and soft, a different touch to some brands who go out there and in your face. The branding is consistent across all products and instantly recognisable.
I’ve also bought the lip scrub and lip gloss, both of which I’m thoroughly enjoying and I’m sure I’ll share my opinion on these products too once I get to the end. As I sit here writing this, I’m sad my tube is at an end but I’m also very happy with the product.
The lip balm retails at £4.00 by itself, or you can buy the lip care bundle which is sold for £8.00 and includes:
- Watermelon lip scrub
- Your choice of lip balm
- Squeeze gloss in airy
The ingredients for the lip balm are clearly listed on the site, which is great for if you have to keep an eye out for any allergies or sensitivities. The ingredients in the lip balm include: Paraffin, Glyceryl palmitate and-stearate, Beeswax and Stearic acid, coconut oil, flavourings, cosmetic grade pigment.
Overall, I’ve enjoyed using the strawberry lip balm and I will definitely be making a repeat purchase as soon as my other lip balm runs out.
