Review : Pin Up Balm in Raspberry

/ 9 comments
You propably know I'm not a huge lipbalm fan and I generally don't use them, because most of them are so heavy and greasy, argh I hate that! :/ I recently won a Pin Up Balm in Raspberry in one of Supersmoocher's facebook contests though, so I thought I'd give it a try and I'm glad I did.


We'll start with the packaging as always. This lipbalm comes in a metal tin with a slide in cap, which holds 7g of product. I think the packaging is really cute and compact too, so it's great to carry around in your handbag, in your pocket or wherever you want! Plus I love anything pin up. You have to dip your finger in to pick up some product and apply it to your lips, some people hate that, but I personally don't mind. Here's what the packaging looks like :



The actual product is a solid lipbalm with no color and almost no shine. I don't know why, but from the product's name I expected this to have a nice berry color, which obviously it doesn't. This isn't the product's fault, I just think it would be nice if it had some color. The texture is really lightweight and not greasy at all, which I love! I also love the scent, it has a really nice raspberry scent. Here's what it looks like :


Let's see what it says on Supersmoocher's website on Pin Up Balm All Natural Lip Balms : "Pin-up Lip Balm is a moisture rich lip treatment made of 100% natural ingredients. Made from natural ingredients such as avocado oil (an organic UV protectant), beeswax (a natural emollient), apricot kernel oil (good for hydration) and Vitamin E (a natural antioxidant)." So, they contain only natural ingredients that are good for your lips, I like that! :)

This lipbalm retails for €4.74 and you get 7g of product, which will last you a long time, so the price is quite reasonable! It's available in 6 more flavors, so you will propably find something you like. You can get these lipbalms, as well as a huge variety of lip products, here ! ;) Definitely check them out, I know I will ! :)

  5. aw Stevi, I love lipbalms!!!!! See? lipbalms can be not greasy and just a pleasure to put on your lips.. I think you're like my boyfriend, he hates anything being put on his lips, he finds it greasy & disgusting hahaha I mean, I just cannot get that! Lol (because I love lipbalms).. I like that you got a lipbalm which is natural, because it's best for your lips (without chemicals).

    very informative review! =)

  7. Many lipbalms end up in little white pieces in the corners of my mouth and it's so disgusting!! :/ Well I feel that my lips are a bit dry, I prefer putting on some lipgloss on them ;) I love that it's natural too! :) Thank you honey! :)

    Really? It's the first time I hear this. Please tell me exactly what it happens when you try to right-click :) x
