Review: Mentholatum Lip Ice in Lemon

Oh this tube brings back so many memories of highschool and the early days of uni. Back then I totally dug the tingly lemony taste of this, but one day I read a bunch of reviews that said menthol irritated lips and that the balm wasn't moisturising enough. Swayed by the negative reviews I stopped using it.

But now I am a confident woman and to hell with the reviews I LOVE this stuff. I was completely craving that icy menthol tingle and I seem to have developed a mild allergy to Burts Bees, all the other minty balms weren't tingly enough. While staring at the shelves of Lip Balm I saw this oldie and thought "What the hell".

So maybe all the reviews are right, but you know what? I don't care. My lips don't protest over the menthol kick and it's moisturising enough to let my lipstick glide on smoothly.

At RM7.95 it's cheap as chips and I'll be repurchasing happily and feeling 19 again everytime I use it. ;)

I can sometimes find these for like $4 CAN. My friend used to use it and it smells soooo nice!

I used to get them in Hong Kong when I didn't know about Sasa.com. :P I stopped using this though because I constantly buy new lipbalms to try, but this one is nice indeed! :)

I know what you mean. I LOVE the tingly feel of Burt's Bees. It's the only reason I use the stuff! lol and in the end, as long as you like it, who cares what everyone else thinks? Reviews aren't set in stone anyway :P lol :)

Be careful though, I got a lip allergy from using Burt's Bees. Sighs. The menthol is a lip allergen.
