REVIEW: The 'Dirty Works' - Go Balmy!

Hello All

I popped into Sainsbury's to get a few groceries, and of course I took a slight detour to the beauty aisle (as you do!). I came across a range of products that are currently half price, and that included 'Dirty Works'.

Dirty Works are a bath and body range, with products priced on a budget friendly scale. As mentioned above, they are currently sold in Sainsbury's with a wide selection of products ranging from shampoo, face mask, face wipes, hairspray, to name but a few. Numerous times I have been into Sainsbury's and seen this brand, but never really bothered to try any of the products, incase I didn't like it and wasted my valuable pennies! But seeing as some of the products are 50% off, I decided to try one of the products; Go Balmy 'Berry Lip Balm'.

As of late, I have developed a very unhealthy addiction to lip balms (not good), so of course any I see that I like the look of and does not contain petrolatum, I will try it.

As you can see Go Balmy is a Berry Lip Balm, which is no surprise to obviously smelling divine, strawberry scent to be exact. It's consistency is pretty thick, quite moisturising, and very pleasant on the lips. The lip balm can be used in a variety of ways; under or over lipstick, under gloss, or on its own for that nude look. 

As for cost it is usually £2.99, but as the lip balm is in the 50% saving, I purchased this at £1.49, which I thought for trialling a product, isn't bad. However I do believe £2.99 is perhaps a little on the pricey side for 15ml tube.

What do I think?
I do quite like this lip balm, quite different from the usual type of lip balms I purchase. I do think it's a brand that is very similar to that of Soap and Glory (agree?), but its prices are much more appealing to the consumer. Whether I would repurchase this product again, I am not sure, but it all depends on the product living up to what it sets out to achieve!!!

PS: This product was purchased with my own money. As always my review is 110% honest, genuine and true. 

PPS: I wrote this piece a while ago, but didn't publish it, not sure why. So I have uploaded it now for you all.
