Yankee Candle Lip Balm reviews

One before the cut:

Brand: Yankee Candle
Name: Cinnamon & Sugar Flavored Lip Balm
Color: Mustard yellow with slight silver shimmer in the tube. Shows up as shimmery and mostly clear on the lips. It does appear as a very faint yellow if it collects in any area (dead skin, corners of mouth, etc.), which doesn't look too nice. I'm not a fan of how this one looks, so I will be wearing this one at home only.
Scent: Brown sugar and soft spices. It's not too spicy, which is nice.
Taste: Not much of anything. No sweetness.
Texture: Smooth and pleasant. Not waxy, greasy or thick. Stays on a decent amount of time, so I don't have to reapply that often. There is the tiniest hint of grittiness because of the mica shimmer in this flavor.
Packaging: Comes in a short and wide tube that looks like a mini Yankee candle. (0.14 oz)
Ingredients: Octinoxate (7.5%), Oxybenzone (3%), Palm Oil, Beeswax, Olive Oil, Fragrance/Flavor, Titanium Dioxide, Mica, Tocopherol, Rosemary Extract, Hemp Seed Oil, Synthetic Wax, Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate, Red 6 Lake, Iron Oxides, Blue 1 Lake.
Price: 62 cents (during the Semi-Annual Sale with additional discounts). Normally $3.99
Purchased From: YankeeCandle.com
Repurchase?: Maybe. This flavor has grown on me. I was expecting it to smell like something else when I bought it, but I do think it smells nice after getting used to it. I think it will be even more pleasant in colder weather. I might try the Spiced Pumpkin and Sparkling Cinnamon flavors before repurchasing this particular one, if I could get them at a nice discount.







Brand: Yankee Candle
Name: Pomegranate Fruit Flavored Lip Balm
Color: Red in the tube. Adds a small amount of a sheer red color on the lips.
Scent: Like tart yet sweet red fruits. Very nice, especially in hot weather.
Taste: It has a slight tart taste. No sweetness.
Texture: Smooth and pleasant. Not waxy, greasy or thick. Stays on a decent amount of time, so I don't have to reapply that often.
Packaging: Comes in a short and wide tube that looks like a mini Yankee candle. (0.14 oz)
Ingredients: Octinoxate (7.5%), Oxybenzone (3%), Palm Oil, Beeswax, Olive Oil, Fragrance/Flavor, Tocopherol, Rosemary Extract, Hemp Seed Oil, Synthetic Wax, Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate, Red 6 Lake, Red 7 Lake, Iron Oxides.
Price: 62 cents (during the Semi-Annual Sale with additional discounts). Normally $3.99
Purchased From: YankeeCandle.com
Repurchase?: I would definitely consider it if there was another nice discount again. The flavor and texture are really nice. The sunscreen protection is nice in the summertime.



Brand: Yankee Candle
Name: Root Beer Float Flavored Lip Balm
Color: Brown in the tube, but goes on clear.
Scent: At first, it smells like those barrel-shaped root beer candies; strong root beer scent. It gets a nice vanilla scent in there as well after it's been sitting on the lips for a couple of minutes. So it does eventually smell like a root beer float on the lips.
Taste: Not much of anything. No sweetness.
Texture: Smooth and pleasant. Not waxy, greasy or thick. Stays on a decent amount of time, so I don't have to reapply that often.
Packaging: Comes in a short and wide tube that looks like a mini Yankee candle. (0.14 oz)
Ingredients: Octinoxate (7.5%), Oxybenzone (3%), Palm Oil, Beeswax, Olive Oil, Fragrance/Flavor, Tocopherol, Rosemary Extract, Hemp Seed Oil, Synthetic Wax, Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate, Red 6 Lake, Iron Oxides, Blue 1 Lake, Yellow 5 Lake.
Price: 62 cents (during the Semi-Annual Sale with additional discounts). Normally $3.99
Purchased From: YankeeCandle.com
Repurchase?: I like the flavor and texture, so I would consider it if it was on sale. I definitely recommend this to root beer lovers. My only complaint is that the one I got expires 7/11, which is when I got it.
