Figs & Rouge


I received this lip balm in my Glossybox last month and at first sight I fell in love with it. Who wouldn't with super cute packaging and it being 100% natural. However I am sad to say it didn't live up to its packaging. The little blurb that came with it told me it was primarily for festivals as you were able to apply it without using your fingers, but I actually found this aspect quite difficult. It is very hard to evenly spread across your lips without fingers and the plastic catches your lips and can be quite painful. The texture is also quite 'bitty' for want of a better word and when reapplied this effect is even worse. I also didn't find it moisturising at all, in fact my lips seemed to get more dry and flaky. Two good things it does smell and taste rather nice.
 
I tried to use this as long as I could but after two weeks struggling I went back to my trusty Blistex Plus, which is incredible hydrating! Have you ever used this lip balm? Which lip balm do you swear by?
