figs and rouge lip, face & body balm

| figs and rouge rambling rose lip, face & body balm* £3.29- feel unique |
| i've also seen this in boots if you don't want to order from online but it was around £4.99 |

i am a huge lip balm fan so when i saw this pop up in my april glossy box i was so excited!

it was the packaging that first drew me in. it's got a lovely vintage feel to it and it's 100% pure, natural and organic which i think is a lovely touch. that means no petroleum! so this is a great alternative for people not wanting to use vaseline or petroleum jelly.

the product has an amazing smell of roses the second you open it and this transfers onto the lips beautifully, tasting a little like some rose drops my mama bought me for xmas one year. the formula is very creamy almost like a super thick vaseline, but still soft. it is super moisturising as well which is perfect for dry flaky lips like mine!

i have to admit i haven't used this on the rest of my body very much but i did give it a try on my elbow and it left it feeling so soft and lovely, as if i'd just slathered it in body butter. i do worry however that it may run out pretty quickly if i decided to use it on my whole body so i reckon i'll stick to using it on my lips for now.

what was the highlight of your glossy box? any lip balms to recommend?
