Balmi – Cube Lip Balm Raspberry
This post may contain affiliate links.
This little Balmi Cube Lip Balm* was inside my goody bag that I received at The City Girls blogger event that I attended a couple of weeks ago in Leeds, and it’s so cute that I thought it warranted its own review.
It came packaged inside the clear plastic bauble which I think would be great re-used at Christmas – I might put some crafty DIY skills into practice and fill it with confetti and glitter and hang it on the Christmas tree!
To get to the lip balm you simply twist off the lid of the rubbery cube container. The lip balm sticks up in a sort of hard cone shape making it ideal to apply to both of the lips at once, and it has a raspberry flavour, it’s delicious and smells/tastes really sweet. The Balmi Lip Balm contains SPF15 too which I think is important in a lip balm to help protect the delicate lips from the effects of the sun.
The little cube has a tag hanging from it too so you can attach it to a keyring or bag if you like – perfect if you’re always losing things!
Unfortunately I was disappointed to discover that the Balmi ingredients include paraffin oil (sometimes called Mineral Oil) and also parabens, I’d love to see Balmi redevelop their formula to include more natural alternatives for these ingredients. For this reason I probably wouldn’t repurchase a Balmi Lip Balm and will stick to something more natural like those from Burts Bees.
Balmi Lip Balms are available in several different flavours, including Coconut, and some of them are round rather than cube-shaped.
The only place I can currently find Balmi Lip Balms available online is from Amazon, the Raspberry version is priced at £5.99 with FREE UK delivery.
