Review: Elemis Loving Lips: Quenching Lip Balm



 This lip balm is the free gift with Cosmopolitan Magazine for this month and I really liked it so I thought it deserved a post! As a gift, it's pretty good being worth around £8 and there's also two moisturisers to choose from if you don't fancy a lip balm but personally I can never resist them.

It's a full size 10ml product but I've found that unless I'm quite generous with it, it doesn't really feel like I've applied anything so it might not last long. That's slightly disappointing but it may just be because I like to slather my lips in whatever when they're feeling dry! I'm also not keen on the applicator but the product itself is really effective at conditioning my lips. It has a slightly minty smell and is really smoothing without being wet or greasy which is definitely a plus. It's aimed at "teens to 20s" and contains lovely things like organic peppermint oil and vitamin E - all from a British company.
I'm not sure I'd pay £8 for it but definitely go and pick up Cosmo for a free one!

PS My lovely friend Becky at What Rebecca Rose Knows is having a very generous jewellery giveaway in honor of reaching 200 followers so go and enter!
