I was going to post this in style and beauty but it’s driving me mad so I thought I’d post here for traffic.

I had a wave of nostalgia today and purchased an own brand spearmint lip balm from boots and I remembered a yellow one I used to buy as well. I used to love it. Obviously they don’t sell it anymore :(

Does anyone remember what scent it was?

Tutti fruity?

It wasn’t tutti fruity. Defo not a fruity smell

Was it a honey one? I remember honey lip balm in the 90s, in the days when I owned at least a dozen!

Not own-brand, but could it have been Carmex? It used to be available in little tins, I think.

The Soltan one was in a yellow tube in the nineties.

Was it one of the natural collection stacker pots? I forgot all about those, I used to love them.

Yes I used this one too!

Wasn't there a spearmint one, peppermint and the yellow one was meant to be unflavoured but it smelt (and tasted!) nice

Am sure they did a lemon one in a yellow tube....

I think it was vanilla. It was a sort of buttery vanilla flavour if I remember correctly.

I remember this! the yellow one reminded me of this cream thick medicine you got when you were little- it tasted nice!

I found it and you can still buy it on eBay!! Thanks for your help everyone it was the UV one. It smelt and tasted amazing!!
