sweet mint (mint/blue)
When you apply this lip balm it does apply really smooth and because it is mint it does give you that minty/tingling feeling on your lips which i like but i know a lot of people dislike it, but not all the lip balms have it just this one. The smell is kinda minty and it has no particular taste (a lip balm taste i guess lol) .Some cons is that it doesn't provide long lasting moisture, its one of those lip balms that you have to constantly re-apply throughout the day which a lot of people do anyways, and it doesn't contain SPF which is very important during spring/summer, apparently only the lemon drop has the SPF. Another con some people might have is the actual shape because it is kinda bulky so it might be uncomfortable in your pocket but for me it's not a problem since i carry everything in my purse. To me its a regular lip balm, theres nothing special to it and its not great but its not expensive either(got mine for $3) so you can still try it. what i mainly liked is the shape because its unique but the product itself doesn't do wonders. I'm 50/50 on it
Where to buy: Walgreens, Walmart, Rite aid, CVS, and Target.
P.S- I'm sorry i do long reviews but i always want to make sure i cover everything and give u all the info and my honest opinion.
