Summer and Winter are the seasons that tend to take a beating on my lips each year. The Summer months leave my lips chapped and dry because of the heat and humidity and the Winter months leave my lips chapped and dry and sometimes cracked because the cold tends to really dry my lips out. Because of this I tend to really gravitate towards lip balms that I know will rescue my pout and leave it looking and feeling it’s best. Recently I was introduced to some lip balms from Palmer’s Cocoa Butter called the FlipBalm. Now, I’m a huge fan of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter brand and products so I was very excited and ecstatic to give these products whirl. I have been using them now for about 3 weeks and I’m finally ready to share my thoughts of them with you. Without further adieu, let’s learn more about the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter FlipBalm shall we?
Retailing for about $3.50 to $3.99 – the Palmer’s FlipBalm is a fun and colorful way to moisturize and hydrate those lips of ours. Available in three delectable flavors, vibrant packaging and ingredients – you can easily find one that will work for you and help protect your pout this season or always. The FlipBalms are available in Juicy Watermelon, Creamy Coconut and Ripe Mango. I have the Juicy Watermelon on my desk and the Creamy Coconut in my purse, my son uses the Ripe Mango. These cute little balms offer your lips much needed ingredients to help moisturize and protect them and they are so affordable, you could pick up each flavor if you wanted. Let’s chit chat a little about each one, shall we?
Juicy Watermelon includes incredients like: Natural Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E and watermelon extract to help instantly hydrate your lips and provide ultra lip moisture. It has a sweet scent and feels really nice on the lips when applied. With natural watermelon extract that is rich in Vitamin C to help promote cell renewal, this lip balm has been a go-to for me to use in the morning to prep my lips for other lip products like lipstick.
Creamy Coconut is probably my favorite. With ingredients like natural cocoa butter, vitamin E and coconut oil – this makes this one a must have for me. As many know, coconut oil is something I use in my daily skin and hair regimen and it’s my secret weapon so a product that has it makes it a must-have. The flavor of this lip balm has a coconut sweetness and scent but it is light and I love it. The pure coconut oil it is formulated with is packed with proteins and fatty acids to soothe dryness. I use this lip balm particularly at night to help rejuvenate my lips from the day and also purchase one for my purse to use while on the go.
The Ripe Mango is a favorite of my eldest son. It has a sweet tropical mango scent and flavor. With natural mango extract that’s bursting with moisture to help prevent dryness and restore elasticity, natural cocoa butter and vitamin E, my son has been enjoying this product. He naturally has dry lips due to his allergies and finds that this immediately soothes his lips and provides them with the much needed moisture to keep from cracking.
The Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula FlipBalms feature a revolutionalry “flip to open” packaging design for easy application with one hand. They are so fun and genius that they even won the “Best Product Award” for the most innovative packaging at ECRM in February 2016. This patented, award winning and one-of-a-kind flip top applicator make applying this product easy and quick so it’s perfect for on the go.
Each lip product is made with pure Cocoa Butter, raw Shea Butter and Vitamin E as well as their additional ingredients stated above. They are clinically proven to moisturize your lips for over 8 hours and I find that I usually apply them to my lips 2-3 times a day. Once in the morning when prepping my lips for a lip product, once in the afternoon after eating lunch (if I remember) and once before bed to protect my lips.
The FlipBalms contain ethically and sustainably sourced ingredients and are free of Parabens, Phthalates, Petrolatum and Gluten. These little colorful pocket-sized treats will help protect and heal dry lips and come from a brand loved by consumers like myself as well as celebrities. You get all the great benefits in a lip balm that you love, but in a tiny little package ready to take with you.
These juicy goods are available at stores like Target, Kmart. Five Below and Palmers.com – so if you spot them, I definitely suggest checking out at least one of them if not all. If you love lip balm as much as I do – I think you’ll enjoy these as much as I have been. I enjoyed these so much that I’ve already picked up a few for my “Give Bags” that I donate to the local shelters so that others can enjoy the benefits of this yummy tasting lip balm.
If you’ve been a reader of Honeygirl’s World a while or follow me on YouTube, then you know that for a long time I have been a fan of lip balm spheres from other brands. The difference I’ve noticed of this particular lip balm from Palmer’s is that it is much softer on my lips when applying and it really leaves my lips instantly moisturized. I also LOVE the flip top which makes it easier to use – I’ve had to throw out a lip balm or two because I’ve dropped my cover on the ground while trying to apply on the go. Everything you need for this lip balm is attached so it makes applying with one hand quite easy.
Have you seen these lip balms hit your local stores yet? If so, have you tried them or have been interested in trying them. They are colorless so they work perfectly to use over or under any other lip product and I think you’ll surely enjoy them.
