At the time of writing this post, I was an Arbonne Independent Consultant. To learn more about what this means, please click here.
When I first started beauty blogging, I never imagined myself spending more than a few pounds on a lip balm and I certainly never saw a lip balm becoming one of my absolutely must have products. In the past I've used brands like Vaseline, Chapstick etc. They never really worked for me so it's a product that I've never been interested in.
However, back when I was first starting out as an Arbonne Independent Consultant, I was ordering an RSVP (Right Start Value Pack) and I had £8 to make up before the offer was complete. Lo and behold, the Lip Moisturiser with Sunscreen, was the perfect price, so in my basket it went.
To me, £8 is a lot to pay for a simple lip balm and while it's no secret I've been majorly impressed with every Arbonne product I've tried so far, I just could not see how wonderful a lip balm could actually be.
The thing is, this lip balm has transformed my lips. I use it everyday, sometimes even a few times a day if I'm so inclined and ever since then, my lips have always been super soft and they don't get chapped or cracked anymore. Because this balm has left my lips in such good condition, it means every lipstick I use now looks so much better than it did before I started using this product.
Since my first tube, which is still going strong, I have bought a backup tube because I know I'll need it one day - I don't want to be caught without it! Admittedly the discount I get as a consultant makes the price a little easier to swallow, but to be honest, I like this product that much I probably would pay full price for it.
The one thing I will say about this is the Arbonne Lip Moisturiser does have a slightly strange taste. It sometimes tingles ever so slightly and it's not exactly a product I rush to lick off my lips like I would do with a cherry Chapstick. If you prefer totally flavourless lip products, this might be one to avoid.
Please tell me I'm not the only one who has been converted to ignoring cheaper lip balms?!
