1. Moisture – It provides equal moisture as EOS’ lip balm. Mid-level. Not bad, but certainly not long lasting like Burt’s Bees or Chapstick Hydration Lock. Perhaps it has something to do with it also being a color lip balm?
2. Color – Speaking of, I really like this pink. It’s brighter than a pastel but soft enough to where I won’t look like I’m going to a rave. (Do the kids still call it a rave? Curious.) The color lasts all day, too. Even if the moisture may wan, my lips still look pink-ish.
3. Scent – It smells cocoa-y and warm, like Hawaii. I live near the beach so the scent of shea butter or cocoa butter appeals to me.
This balm came through in a pinch, especially since I have a bad habit of losing my latest Burt’s Bees on hand. Kudos to Birchbox for sending a full-size sample as well.
Thanks for reading, Stephanie
