Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Balm

Hey lovelies!
Simply put, i love lip balm. A few months ago i put myself on a lip balm ban. Mostly because of the whopping 22 i found, some in my collection some lurking in handbags and dotted around the house. So i felt that number was a little bit excessive and started to use up what i liked and binned what i didn't. Now this was a few months back and I've whittled it down to only having 3 or 4 around the house, so surely i could justify a new one, right?

I'd heard quite a lot about Lanolips through the blogosphere, and as Boots were having a 3 for 2 on most items picking one up as i stocked up on moisturiser seemed like a good plan! I opted for the Lemonaid version and I'm so glad i did! It smells absolutely DIVINE, like a sugary cloudy lemonade. Probably the best smelling lip balm I've come across so far. It applies pretty much clear with a very, very fine gold shimmer to it and looks gorgeous on the lips. It has slightly more slip than lip balms I'm used to but that doesn't really fuss me. The only thing that does slightly bug me is the applicator (which i stupidly didn't photograph), it doesn't have a regular plastic applicator like you'd expect from a lip balm, rather a small hole so you have to apply it with your fingers, which I'm not a huge fan of.

So it smells nice, it looks nice, but does it work? Yes, but I'm not hugely blown away by it. Yes its moisturising but nothing that wow'd me. Do i think its worth the money, YES. For the scent alone I'd repurchase this, its a plus that it actually works. If your expecting some wonder balm your not going to get it, but what you will get is a beautifully scented, pretty decent lip balm. I guess i was just expecting more considering its price tag and how hyped this is. But nether the less its a pretty lovely balm.

Have you tried Lanolips? What did you think?
