This stuff is weird.
This came recommended by a friend because of my love of lip balms. Two weeks ago I headed over to Ulta to purchase. It’s $4.95 USD. I picked up the flavor Sin-o-Mint. 🙂
I couldn’t wait to try it because of the buzzing feeling that was described to me and advertised on the packaging. I opened up my new balm, wiped off my Chicken Poop, and applied this new gem to my lips. It took a few seconds before the buzzing kicked in. It is bizarre to say, but yes, it makes your lips feel like they’re buzzing! It’s the craziest thing! Your lips don’t feel cool or soothing as if you used peppermint balm, like Burt’s Bees. It really is a buzzing feeling!
Lip Freak is 100% natural, but is not vegan as it is made from humanely harvested white beeswax.
From the Lip Bang’s website: Lip Freak contains the following ingredients: Beeswax, Proprietary Essential Oil Blend Including; Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond Oil),Cinnamomum Zeylanicum (Cinnamon Oil), Natural Tocopherols (vitamin e), Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary Oil Extract), Stevia Rebadiana Leaf Extract, Natural Flavors. Some flavors may also contain Mentha Piperia (Terpene Free Peppermint) Oil.
The website claims what makes it buzz is “a super-secret, patent-pending blend of pure essential oils that, when combined together, create that unique buzzing sensation”.
I like it but I don’t know if I like it. I’m not sure it’s a lip balm I can reapply throughout the day because I think the buzzing would soon grow to annoy me. But, as something to use every now and again for a weird sensation, I’m into this, and at $4.95, it’s no big loss if I don’t use it all the time.
Have you tried this lip balm? Do you find it as weird as I do? Do you have a favorite flavor?
