Let me start off by saying that I have NOT been compensated in any way for posting this product review. I decided to post it simply because I LOVE this product! However, if someone from the manufacturer sees my post & decides to send me something, I certainly wouldn't refuse it ;-)
So we all (or most of us I assume) know that Aquafina makes bottled water. This is my preferred brand of bottled water actually, but that's not what this post is about. Little did I know until about a month ago that Aquafina also has skin care products, bath & body products and lip products.
I was in the check out line at Dollar General, when I saw the lip balm there by the register. I am a self proclaimed lip balm addict. I'm generally a chapstick girl, but have been known to "stray" for another brand (Carmex, Lypsyl, Blistex, etc--and usually only if I have a coupon or it's free). I figured for a dollar, I wouldn't be out much if I didn't like it, so I added it to my pile of things to buy.
I carried it around in my purse for about 2 weeks until finally deciding that I was going to open & use it. Was I surprised! At first, I wasn't sure if I liked it...it was a little minty for my liking, but then again, I kinda liked the tingly feeling it left on my lips, and it smelled so sweet. The square shape is neat too, because it keeps it from rolling away like most other brands of lip balm do. Ingredients include: jojoba oil, almond oil and vitamin E.
Now I can't wait to go out and buy more, in several different "flavors" if they make them like that. According to the Aquafina website, the lip oils come in flavors, but I'm not clear on whether or not the balms do too. I highly suggest that if you should see this item in your travels, pick it up & try it for yourself. You will be pleasantly surprised.
