The most underrated lip balm I own: now on sale!

Just a heads-up that one of the most underrated lip balms I own  (literally, I never hear anyone talk about these) is on clearance right now!

Yankee Candle Flavored Lip Balm in Juicy Watermelon
(retail: $3.99)

If you have never seen or tried these Yankee Candle Flavored Lip Balms, they're in the shape of their jar candles (so cute!). But don't let the shape fool you--these balms are not just a gimmick. They are SPF 15 and contain organic extra virgin olive oil, organic hemp seed oil, vitamin E and rosemary. I love, love, love them. Of course they smell great (duh) but they taste yummy too.

I'm hesitant to even direct you to my original review of this product, because it was written a long time ago, before I had had a real camera (I used to use the camera on my old Blackberry when I first started blogging!). But if you'd like to see it, click here.

Yankee Candle Flavored Lip Balm Trio in Rootbeer Float, Vanilla Cupcake and Juicy Watermelon 
(retail: $12.99, clearance price: $10)

So I just wanted to let you know that the the above 3-pack is available on the Yankee Candle website for $10, which will save you about $3 vs if you were to buy them individually.  If you have a Yankee Candle store near you, pop in sometime and check these out!

Do you already own a Yankee Candle lip balm? If so, what flavor do you have, and how do you like it?


  1. Thanks so much for the heads up! I bought one of these sets for my younger cousins last year and they simply adore them. And they were on sale lol I have tried sweet strawberry and vanilla cupcake but now I want to try out juice watermelon. :-)

  2. I spotted these recently at Marshalls! Did not note the price but, I'm sure it would be a steal :)

  3. well, uuum, i just had to order that on ebay lol

  4. Thanks for the info! I always see them on the counter but I never really thought about buying one. I guess the packaging just screamed this is junk to me lol. I def. want to try a vanilla cupcake one:)

  5. I have the pumpkin one, and have been waiting for them to go on some kind of sale before snagging the watermelon, or maybe a Christmas-type flavor.

    I wasn't sure if I liked it that much before, like the general condition it left my lips in, but it's growing on me.

  6. I had never heard of these before, until my daughter brought home her Yankee Candle Fundraising catalog from school!

    How cute are these???

  7. the vanilla cupcake one is amazing, one of my faves!

  8. Oh goodness, TOO CUTE. They aren't available anywhere in Europe and aren't even shipable here....which is irritating! Would have loved to try them out... :( boo!


  9. I got a couple of the strawberry ones on clearance at TJ Maxx for a buck a piece...and outside of the smell, it was the worst lip balm I have ever tried, and I've tried tons. Yuck, yuck, yuck. Not touching those with a ten foot pole ever again.

  10. Lucky me that i have coupons for Yankee Candle burning up my purse! Going to the mall in a while so I will definately see what is offered!

  11. My Life Transformation: Maybe they were old and dried up. That's known to happen at TJ Maxx sometimes (their beauty products can be close to their expiration dates when on last-chance clearance). All I can tell you is that when I bought mine it was fresh, new and amazing in texture. It really keeps my lips moisturized and hydrated for longer than many other balms in my stash. I'm sorry you had such a bad experience. :(

  12. Hey FYI I just went to my local TJ MAXX in the bay area and these lip balms are only 1.00 each!!! They have it in the clearance section with the red tags. If I had read these before I would have picked up a couple.

  13. I have never seen this, can't wait to try it though!

  14. I have the vanilla one and I love it. It's got spf :)

  15. I have way too many of their candles but had never heard of these. I will keep a lookout for them now.
