Product Review; "Snog Balm"
Snog Balm is the kind of thing you see and can't help but think, "how cute!" in the most exclamatory way. Tiny enough to fit comfortably in your pocket, you'd never guess the hydrating power held within.
Loaded up with emollients to keep lips hydrated, this formula doesn't really boast anything different from most balms out there. Ingredients like mineral oil, beeswax and tocopheryl acetate (Vitamin E) are among the usual suspects for lip products, however this product does seem to feel a bit more slick and stretches further with minimal application. Aside from the stretch, you also get the benefits of SPF 15 for sun exposure protection which is something that cannot be said for a good amount of lip products.
Coming in 4 varieties (Naked; unflavored, Cheeky; mint, Virgin Cherry, and Strawberry Tease; coming soon), each balm wears for a few hours before needing the tiniest bit of re-application and are perfectly compatible with lipstick and glosses. A nice product to have handy, this little guys pack more of a punch to puckers than is expected. Plus, they're just really cute.
Snog Balm; $3.50
