Read My Lips – Pepsi Lip Balm – PR

IMG_4449

A novelty lip balm that is adorably cute!

I was very lucky to receive this product from Read My Lips for me to review for my followers – Please note I received this complimentary!

This is such a cute novelty lip balm, but I’m afraid that’s all this will be! This lip balm is more sticky than nourishing, and doesn’t smell or taste that much of Pepsi unlike the Lip Smackers I used to have.

The lip balm is tacky and feels heavy as it sits on my lips, and the application is a bit messy due to the large shape. It wears off relatively fast, and you have to reapply it often – if that is you can stand the sticky feeling.

Bottom Line: A disappointing balm for a Pepsi fan.

Price: £2.00 at Primark

Pure Paw Paw – Passion Fruit and Strawberry – PR

Move over Dr  Lipp – there’s a new balm in town! 

I was gifted these Pure Paw Paw balms to be a part of their #WorldSmileDay campaign. These are new to the UK after originating in Australia, and contain fermented papaya fruit which has been known for its healing powers.

This, like the Dr Lipp Nipple Balm, is an all over balm that can be used in a multitude of ways. You can use it on your lips as a nourishing lip balm, over cuts and grazes to promote healing and as well as using on your hair to tame fly-aways!

I’ve used this mainly on my lips and cuts, I haven’t yet used it on my hair as I’m aware that the balm is quite thick and worry it would make my hair look greasy for work.

When applied on my lips, a little goes a long way, it comes out thick and quickly heats up from your body heat to easily glide on. Once applied it lasts a few hours – which is a lot better than my other lip balms!

Bottom Line: Long-lasting lip balm with a multitude of uses!

Price: £5.95 at Pure Paw Paw UK
