Keep Calm and Lip Balm

Monday, August 31, 2015

I initially spotted 'Keep Calm and Lip Balm' these cuties in a magazine and knew i had to get my hands on them!  I mean seriously, how sweet is the packaging! So i went on a mission.... six drugstores later and two very tired little girls, i decided to reach for some online help!  Apparently they are sold at Walmart so i schlepped my girls over in hopes of ending my crazy search!  Lucky for me they were fully stocked! I almost picked them all up but settled for four!  The names are catchy and the colors are happy and fun!  I picked up Keep Calm and Kiss, Keep Calm and Play, Keep Calm and Rock and Keep Calm and Party.  As for formula, they're sort of what you'd expect off of a lip balm... smooth, hydrating and so on.  As for color, Kiss and Play are pretty much sheer whereas Rock and Party have a sheer flush of pink.  My favorite 'color wise' is Keep Calm and Rock because the color is subtle but very pretty. Sadly, i was pretty disappointed in these because they taste awful.  You'd expect that these fun lip balms might have yummy flavors no?  Well, they don't! They kind of taste like really cheap old lipstick.  I hate to be so passionate about my dislike for the taste but when it comes to lip balm, it really makes a difference. If you can get past the taste, they're great!  I don't regret purchasing these because as you all know, I'm a sucker for great packaging.  However, the average consumer might not be sold on just packaging so i felt the need to alert you of such!  Either way, you can purchase them here and there's even a coupon.

Do you already own one of these?  What did you think?  I'm curious to know if I'm the only one who feels this way or if anyone else out there understands where I'm coming from!  

Thank you so much for reading! Xo, Carla - FMM

  1. Too bad about the taste. The packaging, however, is a great selling point!
