Glossier Balm Dotcom Review

I have never been as obsessed with a brand as I am with Glossier. I have loved every product I have tried and their customer service is top notch. I actually lost my birthday Balm Dotcom and had tweeted about how sad I was that I had lost it and they DMed me and sent me a brand new one - they go the extra mile! I thought I would share why I adore this product so much, it's not often that I will actually buy three of the same beauty item!

Balm Dotcom is a cult favourite, does everything skin salve. I have tried so many products similar to this and I have never been as much as a fan as I am with this one. This is a hydrating, long-lasting multipurpose balm that has so many uses. It's packed full of antioxidants and natural emollients to nourish and repair dry and chafed skin. It's available in five different flavours as well as the original, fragrance-free and untinted version. In my first Glossier order I had picked up the Birthday edition and fell absolutely in love with it and since then I have picked up the Mint and Cherry flavours. I would love if Glossier came out with a Peach one soon, how amazing would that be! 

I love the packaging (like I do with all Glossier products) and each tube has slight variations. The birthday edition has a holographic sparkly top whereas the other versions have colours to match their flavour. Each of the caps with each tube are a different colour too which I love. I really like that these are actually plastic in packaging rather than metal tubes like similar products I have tried previously as it makes them easier to apply and I don't have to worry about my keys stabbing the packaging and it leaking out into my handbag. 

Each of the flavours is the same great hydrating formulation but with a twist. The Mint version is untinted but leaves the lips feeling refreshed and cool from the minty flavour. The Cherry version has a red tint which adds a healthy, natural colour to the lips and smells like my favourite cherry sweets from my childhood. The Birthday version might just be my favourite, this one has glitter in so it adds a clear sparkly sheen to the lips, I like to wear this one over the top of the Generation G Lipsticks a lot, and it has the most delicious scent ever. This one was inspired by Milk Bar's famous cake and if you like vanilla and all things sweet, you'll fall in love with this. 

This product can be used where ever you need a moisture boost, I mainly use mine on the lips and cuticles and it hydrates like nothing I have ever tried before. I get really dry and ugly looking cuticles but after I used Balm Dotcom on them once they were back to normal and looking/feeling super moisturised. Whenever I use this on my lips it instantly comforts the lips and gets to work instantly. I love how long-lasting these are on the lips, I apply mine under liquid lipsticks, alone, as toppers and they last for hours. I use this most nights before I go to bed and I wake up to it still being on my lips! Not only does it hydrate the lips while it's still on the lips and skin but it actually has long-lasting benefits. It's not one of those products that you need to keep reapplying to stay hydrated! It is on the slightly thicker side but I actually like that as it is one of the reasons why it does last so long but it doesn't feel sticky or uncomfortable on the lips.
