12 days of Xmas: Day 1 – Festive Beauticology lip balm mini reviews!

Hi everyone! On the first day of Xmas I thought I’d share with you a beauticology review! 🎡 Oh my goodness if you sang that like I just did it kind of goes! Gave me festive shivers! πŸ˜ΆπŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ (I tried adding in lip balm to the jingle but it made me sing too fast so we’ll go with the above! πŸ˜‚). Welcome to my first day of 12 days of Xmas! πŸŽ‰ At the start of all of my 12 days of Xmas post’s I will have a little tune like that to get it started and hopefully spark a festive feeling! πŸ˜‚

I received this Beauticology lip balm set as a past Christmas present and this year I finally decided to put it to good use! The tin containing the four lip balms is in the shape of a gingerbread man which immediately gives of festive vibes and kinda reminds me of the gingerbread man from Shrek πŸ€—πŸ˜‚

All of the lip balms have their own individual scents that stand out, are true to their names and share the appearance of petroleum jelly. I have dry, occasionally sore lips and very few balms soothe them so it will be interesting to see if any of these do! I decided to try a lip balm a day from the set so that I could get full use out of each one and have time to decipher their pros and cons (if any) in mini reviews.

The flavours of the balms are: marshmallow, caramel, gingerbread and hot chocolate! πŸ˜‹ I can tell it’s going to be difficult not to lick my lips, I have to remember they’re not edible! πŸ˜‚ here we go!

Day 1: Creamy marshmallow frosting lip balm!

Of course I was attracted to the marshmallow first! πŸ˜‚ It left my lips feeling very refreshed throughout the day as being marshmallow it was the lightest scent out of the bunch! It had no painful effects it’s only con was that it disappeared fast (I swear I didn’t lick it off! 😣..πŸ˜πŸ˜‚).

Day 2: Caramel fudge lip balm!

This balm was so refreshing to have on throughout the day and although you could tell it was caramel, the scent wasn’t overpowering. I found it to be the most soothing of all, it did my lips a world of good and kept them hydrated.

Day 3: Sweet gingerbread lip balm!

The most festive of all! This balm was very comfortable to wear at first but throughout the day it’s effects wore off and my lips became dry again which was annoying (I always say annihilating for some reason! So yeah it was anihilating that the good part of it didn’t last longer as the gingerbread scent was heavenly! πŸ˜‚) Although I wouldn’t mind if I had to keep applying it for the scent alone if I’m honest! Like lip perfume πŸ˜‚

Day 4: Hot chocolate lip balm!

This balm smelt delicious and instantly made me want to have a hot mug of chocolate β˜• but I’m sad to say that is where the pros ended…it made my lips go on fire! πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ You would think that they all have the same ingredients in them but this balm must have had something miss the bowl as it simply didn’t agree with me!

Thank you for reading day 1 of 12 days of Xmas! πŸŽ„ Have you tried these lip balms before/would you so as to get into the festive spirit? Have a lovely day! πŸ˜‰β€
