Several weeks ago I came across Pop Beauty Petal Jam Lip Balm and couldn’t resist the sweet little jam jars that the product came in. Seriously? Lip Jam? OMG the cuteness.
Have a little jump to discover what I thought about the Pop Beauty Petal Jam Lip Balm!
What are they?
A moisturizing lip balm with a mix of jojoba and avocado oil for a super nourishing, hydrating treat for your lips!
These are simply darlin’! They come housed in little glass jam jars so you’ll pretty much freak at first glance. Packaging is so very important to me and these do packaging up right. I got two of the three flavors and they are tasty little critters as well. Blooming Orange is a sweet sugary orange and Budding Berry is a juicy, luscious berry flavor! The balms are pretty much transparent on so you aren’t going to get any color from them but simply a hydrating, moisturizing feel on lips with a whole lot of flavor. They leave behind a nice glistening shine on my lips.
I thought they were poorly design formula-wise as it’s a big mess of clumpy pieces of balm. It’s as if they took a single balm and sliced it up into bite size pieces and proceeded to jam them into a jar in a messy, somewhat gross way. Packaging wise it’s gorgeous but looking inside is a little disturbing as it looks like a gloss that was melted and proceeded to dry up. I’ve actually considered returning them because I thought maybe I got a bad batch but upon further investigation this is actually how they are supposed to look…meh. I also find it a little bit of a pain that I have to dip my finger in to use. I’m not a fan of anything that my fingers have to come into contact with but I’m trying to enjoy them regardless.
Why you might like them?
- Because they have damn cute packaging!
- Because they are tasty and sweet!
- Because they leave your lips soft, moist, and shiny!
Why you might not like them?
- Because you HATE putting your fingers into product!
All in all I do like them alot as they make my lips super shiny and moisturized however the unappealing contents of the jar is a real let down as it seriously looks like a little kid opened the jar and proceeded to squish and squash the balm around, pretty gross looking! I’m also not in lust with the finger factor but hey I can’t win ’em all.
Quite a nice balm but seriously needs a little work with the contents there…what the hell is that all about?
Anyone try ’em?
