Raspberry ripple ice cream reminds me of treats at my Nan’s house. She always had a stash of mini pots she picked up from the corner shop, ready to reward her grandchildren on a warm summers afternoon. Minty chocolates have me instantly reminiscing about Christmas dinners, taking me straight back to the demolition of After Eights after we’d already stuffed our faces with turkey and pudding. It’s amazing how certain scents can make you feel like a kid again, instantly putting a smile on your face and a spring in your step. These cute Bee Lippy lipbalms from organic beauty brand Bee Fayre smell divine and really do smell of raspberry ripple ice cream and After Eights. Formulated with natural beeswax and melissa oil, there are nine different flavours to choose from that all include intriguing combinations. Extracted from fresh flowering tops, leaves and stems of the Melissa plant, melissa oil is said to have antibacterial and antiviral properties – perfect for including in a lipbalm formulas.
These cute little tins contain a really light formula which can be warmed up with a finger and applied directly to lips. It instantly hydrates and soothes dry lips, leaving them with a subtle sheen that absorbs after a few minutes on the surface. Because the formula is super light, you can re-apply often without worrying about where you’re going to wipe the excess from your hands – it practically instantly absorbs, making it great as a nail or cuticle cream too! Although this isn’t as hydrating as some other solution driven lip
balms, it is a great alternative for touch-ups on the go and keeping in
your bag. Considering we eat on average eight lip balms a year, it’s
much better to be using something organic and that’s filled with
goodness that won’t harm you in any way internally. These little pots are full of goodness, smell great and are affordable – at £5.00 each, you can afford to stock up on a couple of nostalgic scents in time for spring.
The Bee Lippy lip balms are available online priced £5.00 each.
