Mint 'Balmi' Lip Balm

I'm sure many of you have already read quite a few reviews on this little gem however, I thought I would express my thoughts and opinions on it anyway. For so long I have wanted to try the ever so hyped about EOS lip balms but as they are unavailable in the UK I have never had the chance. When I found out about these on another blogger's post I instantly knew I had to try them for myself.

I must say I absolutely adore the packaging. It has a unique shape like no other lip balm already available in the UK. 'Balmi' lip balms are available in four flavours: Mint, Coconut, Raspberry and Strawberry. All of which smell absolutely amazing but are not overpowering or synthetic in the slightest.  I picked up the mint flavour and as you can see the packaging is a lovely pastel green shade. Another plus side is that these lip balms have SPF 15 which is great for everyday.

The balm itself applies extremely smoothly and leaves your lips feeling super smooth and moisturised. It is so easy to use and the packaging design means you don't have to keep putting your fingers into a pot making it much more hygienic. The lip balm also has a little keyring attached which is perfect for those of us who tend to forget to bring a lip balm with you. With these all you need to do is add it to your keys and you're good to go. 
Many reviews have said the only downside to these lip balms is the price. At £4.99 it could be said that these are quite pricey for what they are however, in my opinion they are completely worth it. They have no faults for me and I will definitely repurchase and probably also go and pick up the other flavours. These lip balms can be picked up from boots and are often included in many 3 for 2 offers. This little gem is quickly becoming a must have beauty product for me and I can't wait to try out more.

Have you tried the 'Balmi' lip balms? What is your favourite lip balm?



  1. Always wanted to try the EOS ones too but they aren't available here these seem like a really nice dupe x

    1. They are absolutely amazing! I'm so glad I found them x

  2. It's great that you found this because I think this may be better than EOS because the EOS one didn't do anything to help my lips! Haha xx

  3. I loved this product and the packaging!
