C. O. Bigelow Lip Butters
Sweet merciful something, I’ve been a bit absent. Classes started back on Tuesday, and I have been clocking quite a few hours at work, which means I don’t have much time to spare for blogging. This isn’t going to ease up until after the new year, but I’ll still try and pop in as much as possible.
So we have something new to talk about at Bath & Body Works. C. O. Bigelow have unrolled a new line of Lip Butters in Mango, Shea, Cocoa, and Coconut. Though I only own one (Mango Butter), I have managed to try all four, and I can tell you, I love these.
These lip butters come in round, plastic screw-top containers. I think the packaging feels somewhat cheap, but it’s not a big turn-off if the product inside is good. Each container weighs in at 0.3 oz of product, costing $7.50 per piece (or $5 each if you B2G1 free at Bath & Body Works). Each lip butter contains shea butter, mango seed butter, coconut oil, and cocoa seed butter as their primary moisturizing ingredients, but are flavoured differently to highlight each beneficial ingredient.
The butter itself is mildly waxy, but applies smoothly with a very mild stickiness. The stickiness subsides within minutes, and settles into your average balm consistency. One application of lip balm lasts about two hours – very good time, considering how much I have to talk at work.
Each of the butters are sweet and fragrant, which is fantastic for all but the cocoa butter, which smells rather… rotten. It tastes fantastic, but I can’t get beyond the smell of that particular butter. I will most likely wind up buying the Shea and Cocnut butters later on – so I have to figure out what to pick up as my B2G1 freebie! Maybe an upcoming giveaway item? Hmm!!
