Yankee Candle . . .Lip Balm!?!

A week or so ago I uploaded an image onto Instagram and Twitter that seemed to have grabbed a lot of people's attention; Yankee Candle Lip Balm. Although my blogging has been somewhat sporadic over the past few months, I have been reading a lot of blogs, and it was 'Lucy Writes' blog where I originally spotted this 'lil' gem.

When I first saw this I was like ''OMGGGG'', couldn't quite believe my eyes, and of course I just had to purchase one. However I have to admit I was a lil dubious after ordering as to whether the lip balm would smell as good as the actual candle, but I kept faith that it would smell fabulous. The ebay seller selling these lip balms currently stocks four flavours; 'Vanilla Lime', 'Sweet Strawberry', 'Christmas Cookie' and 'Vanilla Cupcake'. I opted for Vanilla Lime as I previously smelt it in Clintons (card shop), and fell in love with it instantly. My order took a fabulous two days to arrive (speedy delivery), and I couldn't wait to open and start using it. 


How does it smell? I kid you not, the lip balm smells exactly like the actual candle; a mixture of citrus, with a lingering sweet vanilla scent, absolutely gorgeous. Not only does it smell great, but it is very moisturising, contains 4g of product and has SPF 15. 


As you can see the packaging is adorable; similar to that of the actual candle jars, but has a slight twist added to it. The bottom part of the jar has a 'twisting' mechanism enabling the lip balm to go up and down. The lid is similar to that of actual jar, which is very secure and tight, with the signature 'yankee candle' stamp on the top. Now you're probably wondering how much does this lip balm costs, well here is the short, brief run down.

The seller on ebay currently sells these lip balms at £3.99 each which to be honest may sound a little steep, but I've literally been using mine everyday for almost two weeks, and I still have loads of product left. When ordering from this seller, it is also free delivery, which is even more encouraging and tempting!

I have to say I am more than pleased with this lip balm, although my only slight grumble is the limited selection of flavours. But I am happy to sit and wait should more flavours appear on ebay or even in stores in the UK. . . .

    If they start to sell more flavours I would be interested in them, the vanilla yankee candles give me migraines so I assume the lip balm will too :(

  2. I don't think I could use it, the smell of the candles to me are far too over powering [I hate shops that sell it because the smell just hits me like a wave] so the fact that the lip balm smells just as powerful would really put me off.

  3. This blows me away! A candle for your lips. I think I would feel weird using it but I really want to try it!

    I have a vanilla buttercream Yankee lipbalm, it was one of those whim purchases where I couldn't quite believe that a candle company would choose to branch out to lip products! Love them though :-)
