Ok, so if you read here regularly (and come on, you should!) you’ll know I have a weakness for lip balms. I can’t stand the feeling of dry lips, so my life is basically littered with chapsticks and balms. I also have the aesthetic sensibilities of a schoolchild, so when I caught sight of these adorable lip balms, I just couldn’t resist!
If you’ve never tried these little gems, you’re seriously missing out. Teaming up with brands like Hershey, they manage to combine a rather hydrating balm formula, a rather yummy chocolate scent/flavour and you even get a hit of sheer colour! The Hershey Milk Chocolate Balm give lips a rather surprisingly flattering berry hue, and I love the cocoa taste.
The Hershey Kiss feels like it was made to be turned into a balm. Again, you get a similar hue and flavour, but this time it’s wrapped up in a rather pretty iridescent tube. Bonus? It’s almost impossible to lose in my handbag.
The last of my chocolate-y flavours comes courtesy of Reese’s (one of my favourite candies in the world). I think I could live entirely on Reese’s Pieces! The balm this time looks orange, but applies clear, and it smells just like the candy! I’m not going to lie, I can’t use this balm when I’m feeling a bit peckish – it’s just so tempting!
The Pepsi lip balm is absolutely amazing too! First off, the packaging is absolutely insane, and I love seeing the little can rolling around my makeup bag. I’ve been on a bit of a ‘weird beauty product’ kick at the moment, with hand creams which look like peaches and bananas, so having a teeny little drinks can just looks hilarious! It smells and tastes just like those cola sweeties you usually grab at the cinema.
As you can probably tell, I’m loving these affordable little makeup bag updates! If you want to get your hands on them, you can get them at Claire’s. I’ve found the Pepsi Can balm online here for £3.50
