Visiting a beauty store, I came home with this lip balm by the Pogo brand.
There was literally everything that actually attracted me about this product:
- it’s unscented;
- it has a natural and organic list of ingredients;
Beeswax, Sunflower Oil, Cocoa Butter, Flavor,Coconut Oil, Hemp Oil, Peppermint Essential Oil, Mixed Tocopherols (Non GMO), Spearmint Essential Oil, Rosemary Extract, Calendula Extract, Stevia Extract
- interesting design was also very tempting;
And what I actually got as a result?
Even though they state that the product is unscented and doesn’t have any particular flavor, it isn’t true. The balm smells of a badly refined oil which has already had enough time to become bitter. If I buy a balm with the Nothin' at all statement on it, I expect that it won’t smell of anything. But here, everything is different.
The list of ingredients is really difficult to be picky about, because it actually has only oils and extracts there. However, since there’s Cocoa Butter as a basic ingredient, the consistency of the formula doesn’t look like a usual chapstick.
I deem that for the same money I could have bought a big piece of that Cocoa Butter which smells well and melts once it touches the lips instead.
Here I was really impressed most of all.
First of all, the top cap is very difficult to screw on. When I try to do it, I always end up having the following:
This is so annoying! Each time it feels as annoying as trying to straighten my headphone wires.
Secondly, the balm isn’t steady in the package, because it’s glued there with some unusual stand which is shattering from side to side.
it goes left
and then it goes right
And of course, I can easily take the balm out if I press the rubber basement.
here it is! the lip balm on a stick
What’s that? Why? What for?
All in all, there isn’t anything pleasant in use of this lip balm. Although, I might work well for my heels and elbows, I think.
If you really want to have an unscented lip balm, then I highly recommend you to pay your attention to some other product. It’ll be the best way out!
