My 12 year old DD has been begging for these for ages. Was in town earlier and thought I'd treat her to one.
£3 a pop in Boots, although Superdrug has them buy one get one half price, we've got millions of abandoned lip balms floating round our house, most of which cost less than a quid. What's so special about them?
Are they actually the holy grail of lip balm, or, as I suspect, are they just the latest pre-teen 'thing'?
I think they are just the latest thing. I brought them a while ago, as I had read about them on a few blogs I follow and superdrug had a 3 for 2 offer on. They are just normal tinted lip balm. I gave one to dd who I 7 and the other to ds1's girlfriend who's 16 and she loves it. no different to Vaseline or carmex imo.
Ive just bought one (at 23 I hope Im not too old!) and really like it, I was worried it made my lips too pink but my friend said it looked fine so I wear it everyday. It makes a nice change to just plain vaseline but also gives moisture where lipsticks dont.
