This past weekend I popped into Superdrug with the sole intention of buying the new Lottie London brush cleanser, but while I was browsing the counter I came across a collection of cute little lip balm balls. As I had a look through the range of scents I came across one called 'Cherry Pie'. I pointed it out to my boyfriend as it's the same name as my blog and he said I absolutely had to buy it and feature it, so here we are!
I am a sucker for a lip balm. You should see the bottom of my handbag...it's absolutely overflowing with the things. My current go-to lip balm is an unscented Chapstick because the brand seems to have discontinued the medicated Chapstick I was using previously, but that's a rant for another day.
After using this Lottie London balm, I am beginning to think spherical shaped lipbalms are the future. They're much better than the awful twist up ones I'm used to and which always, always break and eventually stop twisting. They're very cute and very handy for popping in your bag too. The 'Cherry Pie' scented balm is super sweet, which I personally love. It doesn't leave my lips dryer than the desert after about five minutes like most other scented balms do. The Lottie London Balm Balls really moisturise the lips, leaving them really soft and smooth. It also leaves them looking super shiny so no need for a lip gloss!
I found the £4.99 price tag a tad steep personally. It may be because I'm used to buying Chapsticks, which are only around £1, but I guess with these you pay a bit more for the novelty packaging and shape. I'm glad I did pick it up because I'm always looking for new lip balms and this one has been a big hit, so I'd definitely recommend.
Have you tried the Lottie London Balm Balls? Let me know what you thought in the comments.
PS. I did buy the brush cleanser and will be featuring it soon!
