Review: B&BW CO Bigelow Lemon & Black Cherry lip balm

 Bath & Body Works CO Bigelow lip balm in Lemon & Black Cherry is one of my favorite lip balms.

What the Bath & Body Works site claims (taken from the Lemon flavor):
Formulated with a high concentration of lemon oil and extract (3.5%), this addictive Lemon Lip Balm is packed with vitamins and minerals, providing a major dose of vitamin C. 100% natural lemon flavor provides a tangy burst, while ultra-moisturizing shea butter (1%) nourishes and conditions lips. The creamy formula glides on smooth, leaving lips feeling soft and moisturized.
  • Softens, soothes and cares for lips with vitamin C-rich lemon and super-nourishing shea butter
  • Untinted balm prevents dryness and chapping while providing a dew-kissed sheen
  • Developed by Bigelow Chemists
  • Made with Honest, Genuine and Trustworthy Ingredients

  • Incredibly moisturizing
  • Great taste
  • Good amount of product (13 oz)
  • Minty tingle
  • Price ($7.50)
  • Lack of SPF
  • Limited Edition flavors

As you can see, the lip balm comes in a clear stick form. It has no tint to it. The thing I love the most about this lip balm is that it feels like butter on your lips. It just glides on. It has a strong scent of lemons and black cherry and it literally tastes like a black cherry lemonade. Seriously, the taste and smell is addicting! Another thing I like about it is that it's pretty long lasting, I don't find myself applying this balm more than 2-3 times a day. A very little also goes a long way!

One thing I don't like is that this flavor was limited edition (and I had no idea it was) so I'm not even sure when's the next time I'll see this is black cherry. Currently they do have the Lemon, Lemon & Blackberry (tinted) and Lemon & Ginger (tinted). Another thing I'm not too fond of is the price! While Bath & Body Works usually does have BOGO deals, I feel like their lip products are wayy over priced, especially for a lip balm that lacks SPF!

While I do love this lip balm, I doubt it'll be buying any more of these in the near future (unless of course black cherry just so happens to make another appearance)!
