I have heard so much hype about this balm, so I got super excited when I saw a deluxe sample of it as an option for my Sephora 100-point perk. Being the lip balm junky that I am, I was interested to see if this balm was really worth the hype and if it measured up to any other balm products I have tried.
Well, in short, the hype is definitely warranted! This is probably the most moisturizing balm I have ever tried, even more-so than the Moon Balm from Hurraw which has always been the most moisturizing balm I’ve owned. This goes on thick and creamy and is very long lasting. I put this on in the morning at around 7:30, and I could still feel it on my lips a couple hours later (and that was after eating breakfast and drinking coffee). Even after it fades, it keeps your lips very moisturized. I didn’t need to reapply any balm until around 11:30. Usually I’m always re-applying balm!
The flavor I received as my sample (.1 oz) was “Black Tea & Blackberry”. The scent is very strong, but that’s not something I really mind. Its a very clean, berry scent but not one that I would have personally chosen. There are quite a few other flavors available, including the “original” which is Mint. It also contains antioxidants as well as SPF 25, which just makes this balm even better! The full size (which, if you can’t already guess, I will be picking up pronto) is .25 oz and retails for $7.50, which is an amazing price for a “high end” lip balm. I really want to get the “Lemon and Chamomile” scent if I can find it!
Have you guys tried out the Jack Black lip balm yet? What do you think?
