Blue Q Lip Balm - Get Real - Lemons with Honey

Labels: , , ,

Skincare

I'm on my natural product kick, and I like lemon scents... so upon seeing Blue Q's Get Real Lemon lip balm, I got remotely excited. Little did I know the disappointment that was about to ensue.

After purchasing, I tore open the packaging and tested the sucker out. Ugh. What is this? There was hardly any scent, except the faint odor of Honey flavored Airborne Lozenges. Now anyone who has tried Airborne lozenges knows that Honey is the most disgusting one. Unfortunately, this little baby ran me around, oh, $3 or $4. Not a bad price... if only the balm smelled pleasant.

The ingredients list starts off promising: Shea butter, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil... so far so good... then we get to Candelilla Wax. Maybe they used too much wax, because the product itself is very stiff and hard to manipulate. Frankly, it's like trying to use a small Airborne-scented candlestick as a lip balm!

The label says, "Loaded with good stuff". Well, I don't know about that. Maybe it is loaded with good stuff, and the good stuff has been binded together so hard that we can't spread it on our lips. That doesn't do us too much good then, does it?

Adorable packaging is the only plus here, but Blue Q uses the same style of packaging on their soaps and various other products, so I'd steer clear of the balm and opt for something else if you really like their packaging THAT much.

In regards to this lip balm, Blue Q, maybe you should "Get Real".
(Yes, I went there.)

I'm sad to hear this isn't amazing! I do love Blue Q's multitude of products, especially the Dirty Girl line. But I guess I'll steer clear of their lip balms!
