I think I would be fairly safe in saying that most girls had a collection of Lip Smackers balms at some stage in their lives. I know I certainly did. My collection was so large I had a dedicated Lip Smackers Box on my vanity table.
When I hit the first year of high school, I even branched out and bought a more “grown-up” gooey, watermelon flavoured gloss – which I recall tasted just like sour watermelon lollies (I hate to think what I was actually ingesting every time I licked my lips!).
But, there comes a point in every Lip Smacker collector’s life where Lip Smackers become… well… just a little bit childish. The packaging is very “tween”, and the flavours rather sweet (sometimes too sickly sweet) – not always properties that a female past the tween period seeks. It doesn’t mean that we don’t still love an awesomely scented balm or gloss though right?
Well, now we have found Hurraw! balms, a range of “grown-up” scented balms. With scents like red cherry, green tea and coconut, Hurraw! balms are a more “adult” way to get your Lip Smackers fix. My personal favourite is the mint balm – it kept my lips hydrated and smelling gorgeous on my recent long haul flight. The treatment balms also work a treat (excuse the pun), and have become a staple in my beauty regime. One for day, one for night and one for fun, I own the complete “completely kissable lips” collection.
What is your flavour?
