It's no secret how much of a fan I was of the original Blistex Intensive Moisturiser, I actually did a blog post last December about how much I loved the stuff - link here. When I heard that Blistex has brought my favourite winter lip balm out in a Cherry flavour I was so excited to give it a try! If only Blistex would bring out a Vanilla or Mint flavour next, fingers crossed!
The Blistex Intensive Moisturiser Cherry is a new launch from Blistex and it couldn't have come at a better time with the colder months approaching. This lip balm is infused with a blend of rich moisturisers to keep your lips hydrated with shea butter and beeswax. This lip balm will moisturise deep down to rehydrate your lips to leave them smelling of yummy cherries while looking gorgeous and feeling refreshed and soft again. It has has an SPF15 so your lips are going to be protected year round from the sun when applied.
The lip balm itself comes in a small 6ml size which is perfect for popping in your handbag. I am not normally a fan of cherry scents as sometimes they can smell very artificial but I absolutely love the scent of this, not artificial at all! When it is first applied to the lips it does look a little strange as it comes out white but after a couple of seconds it turns clear and leaves the lips looking glossy. What I like out this lip balm is that is lasts for hours on the lips before you need to reapply, I hate it when you apply a lip balm and it disappears within a couple of minutes. I have had very dry lips recently and this has completely saved my lips. After just a couple of applications my lips were back to normal and even softer than they were before. I have been applying this every night before bed as well to make sure my lips are hydrated and soft in the morning. I have already gone through so many tubes of the original that I have actually lost count and I know it is going to be the same with the cherry version! If you struggle with keeping your lips hydrated during the winter I would definitely give this a try, I can't recommend it enough!
The Blistex Intensive Moisturiser Cherry retails for £2.30 - link.
