Time for another lip balm review. This time, I will be reviewing the Eyeko Minty Fat Balm. First things first, pictures.
First of all, I find the packaging cute because it is pink but a bit cheap, to be honest. But then if the product inside is good, then I am willing to overlook that aspect. The moment I pulled the cap, I detected a minty scent that was just a bit too strong for my liking. It was as if the scent crawled through my nostrils working its way to my brain. Although it did not trigger my allergic rhinitis, I had migraine.
The color looks really pretty so I took that as a good sign that maybe I just might like the product regardless of the scent. I did not apply it directly on my lips and used a lip brush instead because of the scent. It looked a bit frosty on the lips but it also felt minty, which I thought was a bit nice (I used to dislike minty lip balms but because of Mentholatum Lip Ice, I got used to it). I stayed in front of the fan to help get rid of the scent and since I have this habit of licking my lips, I did lick my lips. It tasted awful, I just couldn't put my finger to it but one thing for sure is that it left a horrible taste in my mouth. And oh, it just sat on my lips which is another bummer.
When I removed it from my lips using a wet tissue, I felt that my lips were smooth and soft. Too bad because it could've been a moisturizing lip balm if it weren't for the scent and taste. That being said, I am not going to buy this product and other variants since it was an utter disappointment for me. Good thing is I got this as a gift from Tweetykat again.
I would encourage those with sensitive noses to give this a sniff or try it (without licking it :P) before purchasing if you know someone who owns this balm. But if you are not that sensitive to scented lip products, you might like this. :)
Just a hand swatch, no lip swatch. Na-ah!
Have you tried this balm? How do you like it?
Happy Monday night, super awesome peeps! :)
