Fig & Rouge Cherry Blossom Tinted Lip Balm

This tube of lip balm came in this month's Glossybox and is made by Fig & Rouge, a brand I've never heard of before. Although given this blog was created to aid someone who's got to the age of *mumblesomethingcough*  work out skincare and beauty, that may not be a shock.

Packaging: Very bright and cheerful! There's a whole lot of balm in this tube and it's a whole world away from the little glass pots we all used to dip our grubby little fingers into at school.

Smell: Very fruity!

Feel: Very thick. So thick that if you use slightly too much you can feel clumps of excess balm around your lips. Ew. Less is more so I can see this lasting ages.

Look: This is only a tint so it's not overpowering but it does add a nice little touch for daytime use. Probably not coloured enough to show too badly if you have to apply while herding two kids out of the door while simultaneously juggling five bags and a coffee. Which is handy really, given that's how most of my mornings start.

After Use: Staying power isn't great but again, this isn't a colour but a balm so I don't really expect it to stay on for ages.

Love or Bin: LOVE

Available: Various places including Boots and feelunique, so should be widely available. £4.95 delivered from feelunique so pretty affordable!

I'm really impressed with this balm and went to inspect the Fig & Rouge website. They've just started doing a hand cream which if they're anything like this balm will be worth trying.
