It’s only August but some brands are already getting started on the holiday launches, and one of those is the Mary Kay Little Gifts Lip Balms Set*, which contains three scented vanilla balms with a thick treatment for your lips.
I adore vanilla, especially in the winter, so I was really excited to see that was the scent of choice for the Mary Kay Little Gifts Lip Balms Set. There’s the standard (but lovely) Vanilla, as well as Vanilla Berry, which is quite sweet and delicious, and Vanilla Mint which reminds me of some kind of Christmassy baked good. Though they smell great, they have NO FLAVOUR, which is awesome because, I kinda hate tasting my lip balm. I know I digest most of it probably, I don’t need my taste buds to tell me that.
The Mary Kay Little Gifts Lip Balms Set comes in squeezy tubes, which is my least favourite format, and with a balm this thick, you sorta dab it onto your lips and let it melt in. It could also work well with a finger, but I do appreciate the fact that these are friendly for you to take on the go and you don’t have to worry about washing your hands. They are very thick and leave a nice protective layer on the lips and shine but no colour. I happen to really like the formula, but I also really like putting Vaseline on my lips/nose when they are quite chapped, so if you don’t, it may not be for you as the feeling is not that different even if it smells much better!
Mary Kay Little Gifts Lip Balms Set is a cute little set for the holidays that you can easily divide up as stocking stuffers (and maybe keep one for yourself) with festive packaging and a formula and scent I love. No complaints here!
So…thinking of Christmas yet?
