Bloom Boost Lip Balms

I have always been troubled with dry lips and this cold winter is not helping me either. So, when I read that Bloom has collaborated with Boost Juice Smoothies to bring out 6 news lip balms , it got me intrigued...lip balm in flavor of smoothies..interesting.
I will not lie, but my first thought on reading the Press Release was that its another gimmicky product.
To put to its real test, I stopped applying any lip balm for 2 straight days and let my lips go to the driest possible state. Things we do to test products !!

About the lip balm

There are 6 flavors to choose from
  • Strawberry Squeeze
  • Watermelon Crush
  • Berry Bang
  • Mango Tango
  • Banana Buzz
  • Tropical Storm
Each one of them contain soothing beeswax,nourishing jojoba seed oil and moisturising Vitamin E.
They are free of Parabens,Petrochemicals,Mineral Oils and Silicones

What I like about them:
  • The fact that it lives up to its promise of moisturising and nourishing the lips
  • It lasts quite long on lips even with all drinking and eating
  • It doesn't feel waxy or heavy on lips
  • I can easily wear it under lipstick
  • The Boost flavor is not overpowering.
  • Works great as overnight balm
  • The oblong shape of the tube itself makes it very easy to apply.

What I don't like about them:
If only they had some SPF content in them they would have scored perfect 10.

I love it so much that I carry it around with me. Its a winner for me.

Would I recommend it : Yes. In fact I am going to buy few for my sisters.

  2. ah SPF... it's always that one thing missing. I like the sound of the watermelon crush though -yum!
