My latest gem in my (ever growing) collection of lip balms is one that is just wonderfully minty AND chocolatey. And not just ANY chocolate - Dark Chocolate. I kid you not.
This little tube of Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Lip Butter with Vitamin E (on top of their delicious flavours) promises to soften and soothe those lushious lips. AND give you a subtle gloss. Gee, they sure promise a lot.
But do they deliver! And just how did I find such a gem? Read on to find out!
If you ladies MUST know, it started with a self-invitation (*tee hee hee*) to stay over at Kahani's the moment she touched down (I think I've announced her return enough times now). =P
One reason why I love her place so much is because staying over usually means I get to play with skincare and makeup galore! Her room is like the makeup equivalent of a candy store (mine's getting there too)!
So when it was time to get ready for bed, I was looking around for her Vaseline (didn't bring mine coz well, she HAS one. Or two.) but simply could not find it. Even Kahani resigned to: "Oh, it's here SOMEWHERE."
And then I spotted this tube of balm sitting atop her pretty little makeup arsenal, and I thought, "Oh well, let's give it a go." And lo' and behold. The moment I applied it on my lips, I. Could. Not. Stop. Sniffing. It smelled DELICIOUS. It felt like I was in a chocolate confectionary. Really!
True to being a balm, it kept my lips balmy and moisturised all night even in the dry air-cond room. And as law of makeup addiction dictates, I had to get one for myself. And so I did. At RM12.70 a pop for 10gm, it's not too bad as prices go.
The choc scent doesn't linger on too long though. Boo for those who love the chocolatey scent, but yay for those who may not be too keen on it. But then, if you're not a choc person, err.. why get this in the first place, right?
Ingredients include petrolatum, theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, tocopheryl acetate, mentha piperita (peppermint) oil and flavour.
Use it on its own, or apply it under or over lipstick, if you wish.
So, anyone for second helpings? =)
