Review: Blistex Soft and Silky Balms

It's been absolutely no secret that I love clever little things here at Temporary Princess, whether it's the ingredients, an appliance, or simply the packaging. Blistex's new release has definitely delivered on that front, with their new Soft and Silky Balms!

These balms come in two different flavours, Blueberry-Peach (blue) and Plum-Vanilla (purple), and with this packaging, it's guaranteed that you won't be losing the cap anytime soon! All you have to do to get to the pearly goodness inside is to flip the lid off the top, then turn the lid 180 degrees before clicking it in place. These definitely look like little pearls sitting in a shell!

It took me a while to figure it out initially, but once I got the hang of it, I couldn't stop playing with it! Word to the wise, however, don't attempt this with wet hands - it may slip right out of them!

The lip balms are meant to contain silk extracts to keep the lips smooth and soft. I like that the balms taste faintly of gummies, slightly sweet, and that they glide onto the lips easily. These also feel quite moisturising without just coating the lips with a layer of product.

These retail for $5.95, and for that price, you don't have to pick one - you can just buy both! That way, you don't have to decide, and you can reach for the one you want when the mood strikes - winning! This is available at Priceline, as well as other places that stock Blistex.

Have you tried these yet? How do you feel about the design?

  2. I haven't tried these before, but I have from a brand called EOS and it pretty much has the same concept. I'll have to check these out next time! x
