I think I am craving a hot, beach holiday which is why this lip balm has been going everywhere with me. The smell is very subtle and the vanilla is not too overpowering. This is the second tin I’ve bought from the guys at Figs & Rouge, the first one being the vanilla orange flavour. This coco vanilla one is described as ‘delicious and indulgent’ – I haven’t tasted it, but it definitely feels indulgent on the lips. There’s no gloss to it or sheen so if you’re expecting a vaseline-type finish then this isn’t for you.
Petroleum free, 100% natural and 100% pure (no external accreditation for either) and in the cutest little tins that would make great stocking fillers for beauty mavens. Each tin has its own unique design and there are 7 flavours to choose from; rambling rose, lemon berry, pomegranate, aloe & mint, wild cherry, vanilla orange and coco vanilla. They retail at £4.95 and you can buy them here.
They also have tubes of lip balm, as well as butters which you apply direct from the tube, i.e. without using fingers. This is preferable when out and about when you cannot be sure that fingers are absolutely clean.
