Quickie Mention: Palmer’s Ultra Moisturising Lip Balm in Dark Chocolate and Cherry

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturising Lip Balm in Dark Chocolate and Cherry

I have a confession to make: I’m addicted to dark chocolate but I hate cherries. Okay, maybe hate is too strong a word. Let’s call it strongly dislike. I just don’t like the taste and always pick them out in cakes or whatever has them.

When the Palmer’s Ultra Moisturising Lip Balm landed on my desk for review, I wasn’t sure to use it or just give it away because it contains my pet love and pet dislike (is there such a word?). One day, I was rushing to go out, needed a lip balm and in my haste, I grabbed this and shoved it in my bag. I decided to bite the bullet, rip the packaging apart and try it out. It turns out to be a lot better than I expected and I ended up really liking it.

For a tinted lipbalm, man, this packs quite a punch in colour. Tinted lipbalms are usually very sheer but this one’s almost like a lipstick. It’s a lovely shade of berries and the lipbalm part is very good too. It’s very moisturising and while the colour doesn’t last long, I have no problems with reapplying it throughout the day. The taste? I’d say it’s a bit like blackforest cake with more chocolate than cherries which is just YUM. I know at least one person out there who will enjoy this. ;)

By the way, this does contain mineral oil so if this is something you’re not keen on, I’d say stay away from this lipbalm. It doesn’t really bother me so I give it two enthusiastic thumbs up!

Palmer’s Ultra Moisturising Lipbalm in Dark Chocolate and Cherry retails at AU$3.49. This sounds blasphemous for a Melburnian but for the price, it’s worth skipping that cup of coffee for. :P

      I’d love to know what beauty product would actually get you to skip your coffee. ;)

    Will check it out on my next trip to Priceline, not that I need another lip balm ;-) For tinted balm, I quite like the Maybelline Baby Lips Cplour. Its moisturising and gives nice rosy hue to my already pigmented lips.

    Where did you get it as I haven’t seen it around – is it a new product? I’d like to get some!

      It’s a new product. Palmers has a lip butter version in a tube; this is new and a lip balm. :)
