Recently I received some tubes of LypSyl lip balm for review, and I have to say that the oval-shaped tube, combined with the honey-bee slider button, immediately sucked me in! I always say that I'm a sucker for any lip balm that comes in non-traditional packaging, and LypSyl had me at hello with their tube:
(Top: Honey Berry LypSyl with SPF 15, bottom: Original Formula LypSyl)
But what I love even more than their packaging is the fact that LypSyl lip balms are made with great ingredients such as certified organic shea butter, vitamin E and Swedish beeswax which, according to LypSyl's website, is what sets their balm apart from the others:
The secret behind the LypSyl is pure Swedish beeswax, ultra light to spread evenly and penetrate deeply, for unsurpassed moisturizing and protection.
So Swedish bees make a wax that is ultra light? Interesting, and that totally explains why this lip balm is one of the smoothest I've ever put on my lips. It literally glides across your lips like satin, and when I rub my lips together it is smooooth, I tell you.
The traditional LypSyl has a nice minty scent and texture, but my favorite by far is the Honey Berry. I'm addicted to the scent, which really is a perfect combo of honey and berries. The flavor almost reminds me of fresh grapes, which of course is fabulous as well.
And look at how cute the lid is!
I just love the oval-shaped stick! I've never seen another lip balm like it!
Now here's the best part: LypSyl products are available everywhere! You can get yourself a tube at Walmart, Walgreens, Rite Aid, CVS, Duane Reed, Drugstore.com, Bed Bath and Beyond, and lots of other places. The retail price of LypSyl lip balm is around $2.99, which is great considering how moisturizing this balm is (and don't forget that adorable packaging!).
