Hi my loves, hope youre all having a fabulous week! Today Im coming up with one of my favorite product for review – A Lip Balm. I feel it is a must have or a staple product that has to be in the purse.
We don’t need lipsticks all the time, a little lip balm to have a smooth & plump lips will do more than a dry, patchy, streaky shade of colors on the chapped lips. Don’t you agree ?
And thats what came into a box of surprise for me, for this Valentines Day 2018. Palmer’s surprised me with their all time favorite Lip balm and a box of candies making the perfect v-day gift !
Doesn’t it look pretty ? Ofcourse Yes ! Alright, lets get in to the review now…

My experience with Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Ultra Moisturizing Lip Balm SPF 15.
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Ultra Moisturizing Lip Balm SPF 15 glides smoothly so that you don’t have to rub too much for even application. Also, it doesn’t feel waxy or too runny on the lips. The lip balm is lightweight and doesn’t apply glossy.
Whilst talking about the Dark chocolate with cherry one, the flavor of this lip balm tastes exactly like a cherry pop to me! Seriously, it’s got that same candy-like cherry note mixed with chocolate, and it SMELLS just like a Cherry Pop as well! Both the flavor and fragrance are strong during application but they fade pretty quickly.
And they layer a beautiful red-pink tint on the lips, which looks like a natural lip tint.
Coming to its effectiveness, Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Ultra Moisturizing Lip Balm SPF 15 provides a boost of hydration to the lips. It instantly softens dry and rough lips and regular application heals the dry and chapped area on the lips. The moisturization it provides is quite long lasting. Moreover, its a perfect one to be used for overnight. I apply this lip balm at night and in the morning, my lips feel soft and supple. In fact, the lip balm can be used as a lip primer / a base to have a smooth application of lipstick. It comes with SPF 15 which is an added bonus.
