I was really looking forward to these balms, but I'm super unhappy with them.
The packaging is cute.
The applicator (or lack of one) is kind of awful. Just a flat hard plastic with a tiny hole. Feels like I'm scraping my lip if I apply directly, and I don't want to fuss with a brush for balm.
The formula is okay, the smell is incredibly faint to nonexistent at best and at worst it smells/tastes horrific. The best way I can describe it is the smell/flavor of those gross little lip gloss kits you would get when you're 12 years old from your grandma at Claire's. Just super plastic chemically grossness. I'm not normally very sensitive to scents but this is so bad I can't keep the product on my lips.
I've got other Trixie products I love, these are a huge let down, especially for the price.
I hate chapstick and let it melt in my car so this lip balm is a welcome reprieve from that cycle. I bought several flavors and they all smell (and taste) fantastic. They’re gorgeous colors that don’t dye your lips past their natural shade and keep them unchapped all day! 10/10 would buy again
When Trix promised a limey tingle with this lip balm, she wasn't joking; and yet, it's just a hint with that sweet strawberry scent. Cute and hydrating and will be wearing indefinitely. My only small bone to pick (think inner ear bone-sized) is that it isn't as easy to apply on the go as some other lip balms due to the applicator tip style... but the packaging is adorable.
goes on light like a balm, gives just enough color, and leaves a pretty shine like a gloss...ALSO, they really hydrate and I have been using all of them since I picked them up!
This balm feels so smooth going in and is making my lips feel so soft! 10s across the board!
