What is it?

The Glossybox website describes this product as: “Figs & Rouge Lip Balm is excellent for soothing and conditioning dry or chapped lips & skin. Using only 100% Pure, 100% Natural & 100% Organic ingredients – this cute balm is suitable for all skin types.”
Figs & Rouge provides six other different flavours of lip balms (I have Rambling Rose), here they are below:

Why did you buy it?
It was free with April’s Glossybox. It is £3.29 for an 8ml pot of lip balm. I was given the Rambling Rose Cherry and Vanilla flavour.
How do you use it?
I glided the desired amount (not a lot) of lip balm onto my lips, and voila, finished!
To say that I swear by my beloved Palmers Peppermint and Chocolate lip butter, this Figs and Rouge version is a very strong contender to possess first place in my make-up bag! The lip balm is not sticky or gooey, it’s nice and smooth, and you only need a little (and I stress, only a little bit) to smooth your lips! This product will last for quite a while, so for £3.29 it’s not bad in the ‘cost per wear’ department! At first, I wasn’t keen on the smell, and I would have much preferred the Coco Vanilla or the Peppermint and Tea Tree flavours, but I did receive it from Glossybox, and as they aim for people to try new brands and products, I can’t complain! If it wasn’t for the flavour preference, I would have given this product a 5/5!
My rating (out of 5):
What are your thoughts on Figs and Rouge’s lip balms? Do you have any ‘must-have’ lip balms? Or are you a lip gloss/lipstick sorta girl?
