For many, lip balm is an indispensible item. For me, you’d be hard pressed to find me using lip balm at all. I used to a long time back but never in the day and only at night before bed. When I discovered that pure Vitamin E oil worked better, I opted for that – more economical.
But with a name like “My Lip Stuff” on a blog like “My Women Stuff” this product just screams for me to review it doesn’t it?! :D
I’d come across MyLipStuff or My Lip Stuff lipbalms before this on my online travels. It comes in like a million flavours… or maybe 500 flavours… from something like Cat Pee or Dog Poop; to something quite ordinary like Passionfruit-Orange-Guava or Orange Creamsicle like the one we have on offer today.
As far as lip balms go, this one isn’t bad. In our hot tropical weather, it slicks on very easily but I’m sure that if you leave it in your car, in the hot sun, you will come back to a puddle of goo. I tote it around and I do notice that when I’m out in the sun, it takes on an oily melty consistency but if I use it in an air-conditioned environment, its significantly harder and firmer to the touch. So, thats both a plus and minus point.
As many people have noted, My Lip Stuff lipbalms leave your lips feeling soft and moisturized for longer than regular lipbalm which is a plus. But unless you are NOT sensitive to scent, do be warned that even the nicest scent might leave you gasping for air.
Orange Creamsicle smells like freshly squeezed oranges. Lovely sweet sharp citrus orange smell. It even tastes like oranges. In fact, it tastes just like the Trebor Orange Sherbet sweets! Remember those? Tangy orange sweets with fizzy sherbet in the middle? I looked high and low all over KL to buy these to take a picture but you know what? I couldn’t find it anywhere! Is this sweet discontinued? What a pity if it is :(
Its all nice in the day but the sweetness of the lipbalm takes some getting used to and I can’t bring myself to use it night, because of that strong sweet orange smell. I tried it once and I kept feeling like I should get up and brush my teeth. If I’m in the market for a lipbalm next time, I will choose My Lip Stuff BUT I will pick it in an unflavored tube.
Which brings me to the fact that the local reseller of MyLipStuff lipbalms does NOT carry the unflavored lipbalm aptly named – Plain Schmain. Still I am probably in the minority and after all, My Lip Stuff’s selling point is their 500 flavours of lipbalm that they carry.
If you’d like a lipbalm that slicks on easily and leaves lips feeling smooth and soft all day, and you like flavoured lip balm, give My Lip Stuff a try. With 36 flavours available locally and at RM12/tube its not too bad; plus you could satisfy your dessert craving without piling on the pounds :P
Pros: Affordable, Keeps lips soft and kissable (!), Many unique flavours to choose from
Cons: Too sweet for me
Are you a lipbalm sort of girl? I seriously think I’m sitting here alone and in the minority for never having lip balm on hand. I used to when I lived overseas because the air is so dry there and my lips would peel like a snake shedding its skin; but since coming back to hot humid Malaysia, lip balm is nowhere to be seen on my person.
My Lip Stuff lipbalms are available in Malaysia from mylipstuffmalaysia.blogspot.com and retail at RM12/tube. Internationally, you can order it from mylipstuff.com
