NEW Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Flip Balms
(retail: $3.29 each at Five Below, 0.25 oz.)

It takes a lot to get me excited about a new lip balm. Ha! Just kidding. Do you know me??? I always get excited about new lip balms. But I'm extra excited about these, because: New Funky Fun Packaging!

Thanks so much to longtime reader @christoooph3r on Instgram, who kindly steered me in the direction of reader @missmimiwallace on Instagram, who recently spotted these new Palmer's lip balms at her local Five Below. @missmimiwallace kindly let me share her pics with you, so let's take a closer look.

The new Palmer's Flip Balms come in three flavors (pictured at the top of this post): 
  • Juicy Watermelon
  • Creamy Coconut
  • Ripe Mango

These balms are shaped like a sphere but, unlike EOS and Revo. they don't have a screw-top lip. The lid on these balms is a flip top (duh) and you MUST watch this short clip that I found on Instagram to see exactly how they work. Did you watch? OK now let's discuss. Fun, right? I love that you can essentially open, apply, and close them, all with one hand. If I were a long-distance cyclist (Ha! Once again, do you know me?? I can't cycle to save my life, unless we're talking beach cruisers that go 0.00001 miles per hour) these would come in so handy! But aside from that, they look so fun, don't they?

These new balms aren't yet on the Palmer's website as of the time of this post (although I did notice that they have a new Manuka Flower Honey line out, which is news to me). In fact, I couldn't find any web presence at all for these lip balms yet, but Palmer's confirmed that they're just now starting to pop up at Five Below, Target, and Harmon (which means that they'll probably be at Bed Bath & Beyond stores with an extended beauty department, as well). If you want to see where your nearest Five Below is located, click HERE. I won't be able to get them at my nearest Five Below, since I'm in Southern California and my nearest Five Below is oh, just 1,118 miles away (San Antonio, TX). Hopefully they'll show up at my local Bed Bath & Beyond or Target soon so I can buy some and review for you. Hopefully I'll like them at least as much as the Palmer's Dark Cherry & Chocolate Lip Balm that I reviewed a while ago for you HERE.

Have you spotted these new lip balms out in the wild yet? If so, I would love to know where you found them, and if you purchased any!

Thanks again, @missmimiwallace, for the great pics, and @christoooph3r for the great tip!


  1. Here is my video showing them a little better if anyone is interested, thanks :)

    1. Thank you so much, Mimi! Can't wait to watch and thanks again for the great pics! xo

  2. They seem pretty cool and I hope they're half as awesome as the Palmer's dark chocolate and peppermint lip butter then I will be a happy camper.

  3. I'm looking away, I can't be tempted by more lip balms, I have sooooo many already.... :D

    1. As if that has ever stopped ANY of us?? Lol! ;)

    2. LOL no, and I love all the Palmers stuff I have... We all know where this is going.. :D

  4. I'm definitely going to pop into 5 Below today and see if I can find them. Seriously can one ever have too many lip balms???

  5. These sound awesome! If I find them, I think I'll try the coconut one. I'm a sucker for coconut.
