I will fully admit it, I am a sucker for a gimmick. My kitchen houses an alligator cheese "gator". I have a blush brush that looks like a lady with an afro. Our bottle opener is an open-mouthed grizzly bear. I am not attracted to basic, no-frills functional products.
When it comes to makeup, I don't take myself too seriously. I am a makeup artist for a company that has the motto "laughter is the best cosmetic, so grin and wear it", and I fully believe in that adage. I love packaging that makes me chuckle every time I open up my makeup bag. I adore tongue-in-cheek color names that make me excited to tell people what shade I am wearing. Products that catch my eye have to be witty, interesting and unlike anything I have ever seen before. But don't get me wrong, behind the packaging and silly names there has to be quality and impressive performance.
While perusing the internet blog-o-sphere I came across a new product that met all of the requirements to be considered for entry into my makeup collection.
Introducing my new obsession: Balm Chicky Balm Balm
Yes, Balm Chicky Balm Balm, like the music that played in the background of cheesy 70's adult films. The packaging and the product names are all inspired by this special time in history. A time when both men and women wore long feathered hair.
The melon flavor is a super yummy, but not overwhelming ripe cantaloupe flavor. I like the subtlety of the scent and flavor of this balm. Very smoothe and not sticky at all! Retails $12 on www.balmchicky.com
is the perfect gift for the stud in your life. I gave one to my fiance Ben and I know every time he uses it he will be showing it off to his friends. It has a nice fresh flavor. The cucumber is a little unexpected and it balances nicely with the tingle and breath freshening of the mint. I think there is a definite manliness to this flavor and scent. Almost like cut grass! Retails $12 on www.balmchicky.com
Other flavors to check out...
Sweet Baby Ginger: Spicy ginger flavored lip balm that "warms your lips with a hint of spice- a little bit naughty, a little bit nice".
Wild Mountain Honey: Raw Honey flavored balm that "tames even the most weathered lips into supple submission".
For the best deal order three flavors for $30 or five for $50.
Why I love em': Behind the adorable packaging and sexy names is a product that packs a punch. Balm Chicky Balm Balms are all natural and organic. They moisturize the lips with extra-virgin olive oil, palm oil, hemp seed oil and beeswax.
Bonus Feature: Have you ever had that awkward moment when a friend asks to use your lip balm? Everything in you wants to say no, but you want to be a good friend and help your friend whet their whistle. Balm Chicky Balm Balm has solved this friendship ruining dilemma! It's called the "Friend End".
All Balm Chicky Balm Balm's come with a flip top "Friend End" that you can offer to your friends while still keeping your end of your lip balm germ-free. Now isn't that nice.
These adorable lip balms are definitely worth checking out! I think they would make great gifts and could certainly spark interesting conversations.
I discovered Balm Chicky Balm Balms on an online blog. I wrote to them expressing interest in trying out their product and they were generous enough to send me PR samples. I only write about products I actually am interested in and always give an honest review.
