Lip Smacker Grape Fanta lip balm

When LaLa told me how great these balms taste I had to get them. I've been looking at them for a while, and had managed to resist, but LaLa's raves pushed me over the edge and I had no choice but to buy them. LaLa said that her favorites were strawberry and orange, so I was intending to get both of them, but as it was only $2 difference, I bought a three pack containing strawberry, orange and grape flavours. This was originally supposed to be a review of all three balms, however I started using the grape one and I love it that much that I haven't tried the other two flavours yet.

When I first tried grape I wasn't expecting to like it much, but I love it! It smells just like grape bubblegum, and tastes like bubblegum too. It's purple in the tube, but goes on clear with a soft shine. Surprisingly it's moisturising too. Grape Fanta lip balm is moisturising enough for me to wear every day. I haven't tried it when my lips are really dry, I imagine that it wouldn't be moisturising enough but for everyday use it's great.

When I was younger I assumed that I'd grow out of my love for lip products that taste good, but I haven't. I love flavoured lip products. I'd be happy if all my lip products were flavoured, and I'll often not buy products that aren't flavoured.

Would I buy this again? Yes, for those times when I want to feel like a kid again.
