Coconut Balmi Review



I love lip balms, fact. I had tried every kind of lip balm there was to offer and yet I had still not tried a EOS or a Balmi which I have heard alot about. I heart the shape of these lipbalms, it has a novelty factor coupled with practicality. Since I love Coconut scents it would seem appropriate to try it out in my most favourite scent.

Product description:
Your Lips are constantly on show to the world around you and you want them look good and feel protected against the elements.
Fully tested, the Balmi Lip Balm provides SPF 15 and UVA protection making Balmi the essential accessory for your lips; whether you're off to school, out on the piste or just off for a leisurely stroll protect your Lips with Balmi. GO Balmi!
The Balmi Lip Balm has the perfect blend of ingredients to give your lips long lasting daily care and protection. Perfect for even sensitive skin.
Our special blend of natural goodness contains antioxidant-rich Vitamin E, soothing Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil to help leave your lips moisturised, soft and super smooth.



Balmi was first created in 2010 but with a spherical design, just like an EOS lip balm but it was not until recently, Balmi relaunched the lipbalm but after having a redesign and being reformulated. 
I adore the packaging of this, all of the scents have colours that match and in addition to this, you can hook this onto your keyring/purse for easy on the go application. I love the fun element of this as this makes this brand stand out from the rest. The cone-shaped lip balm makes it easy to apply straight from the 'cube' rather than you having to dip your fingers in which is quite un-hygienic.
Balmi is packed with alot of good stuff for your lips, trust me it does alot then just look pretty. The added SPF 15, Jojoba oil, Vitamin E and Shea Butter promises to do nothing but ensure your lips are well taken of, hydrated and feeling oh so moisturised. This also contains UVA protection which makes this an ideal handbag essential.
The scent is ok, The coconut scent is definitely evident but it seems to be a bit artificially scented. I can detect a slight plastic like smell that is mixed in, this does let this down ever so slightly. 
So with that on the side, I can commend the staying power and ability to keep my lips feeling moisturised and protected. It's lasts just a bit more than your average lip balm before needing to top up again.
I quite like Balmi, but I want to try out a different flavour/scent, I'm thinking maybe strawberry next. Let's hope that the next one smells better.

Available to buy online or in store at Boots - link/£4.99*
