The Blend Collective Enlivening
Lip Balm comes in a tiny white pot with a lid for the lip balm inside besides
the top itself. It contains 10g of product.
Considering EOS Lip Balm is my least favourite one, I am a hard
person to please when it comes to lip balms. I don’t know is it me or my lips,
but I find very few lip balms hydrating enough for me.
Blend Collective is a British natural body care brand with three
collections to their name right now. They blend high quality natural ingredients and essential oils to make their final product free from any
silicone, parabens, sulphate or any chemical not good for the skin. This lip balm is part of their Enlivening
Collection with main ingredients of sicilian lemon, myrtle and lime.
I find the packaging of all three
ranges very appealing. The products have a very crisp vibe to them. They have a
colour code for each range and blue is used for this particular collection. I
would give them an all ten just for how they have made their products look.
Unfortunately and quite sadly for
my high dreams, the lip balm did not make my favourites list. We have a very
dry weather here and my lips seldom behave nice. Whenever I have applied this
lip balm, it does not penetrate the deep layers of my lips. It is not waxy but
it just sits on the top. I keep pressing my lips together, licking, as you do
when you want moisture. It kinda feels like the un-flavoured version of
Vaseline. It doesn’t do much for my lips, my good lip balms last hours, but I
keep having the urge to reapply this every half hour. It has a strong sicilian lemon scent, which some may love and some not; I am still undecided.
Also, I also don’t like, which is
my personal preference only, that the lip balm comes in a pot. I simply am
impatient when it comes to sticking fingers in pots. Not because of hygienic
reasons, but because, one, I feel icky, and two, I get impatient. Though, unlike
Vaseline it has a very hard surface like a chapstick. It doesn’t make a
difference, because I still apply with a finger, but this something better than
dipping fingers in gooey Vaseline and TBS Born Lippies.
If you are into buying products
just for the packaging, and how cool they make your vanity table look (which I
am sometimes guilty of) then you might need this in your life! But if you have
troubled (is that even a term?) lips like mine you might wanna pass.
