Speaking of summer, I’ve been positively brimming with excitement to share this post with you, friends!! It’s well established on this blog that I’m a bit obsessed with lip balms and have written extensively on this topic in the past — believe it or not, there IS quite a lot to say (err, write…) about these deceptively simple products. I just love everything about them, obviously, and consider them to be one of life’s simple pleasures. Well, back in April, I found out that ChapStick was about to release a new line and, umm, I almost screamed right there in the quiet library! So I naturally did what any uberfan would do and emailed them to see if they’d like to collaborate on an upcoming blog post. And…they were game!! They sent me so many samples to review the ChapStick Summer Collection and Duos! Truth be told, I was practically in Lip Balm Heaven! Here’s a rundown of each product and my discerning thoughts…
ChapStick’s Summer Collection
First up is the brand’s newest release, just in time for warm weather and lazy days spent outside! The Summer Collection sports three awesome flavors: Pink Lemonade, Peaches & Cream and Sweet Watermelon. They’re the perfect way to start summer and “brings the sweet aroma of summer to your lips with every swipe.”
Just as I suspected, these little gems don’t disappoint! All the flavors glide on so smoothly and are the ultimate in refreshing — they make your lips feel extra moisturized! My favorite of the three? Pink Lemonade, of course!!! Because, really, if lemonade doesn’t just scream summer fun, then I honestly don’t know what does!
I was so excited to see FIVE packs of the Duos tucked in the envelope when it arrived! This line came out awhile ago and I never got to try them, but I’m so glad I could get my hands on them now! Why? Because it’s the ultimate in the lip balm experience! I mean, it’s basically everything you could ever want and is like two lip balms in one! Billed as fun and exciting, the eight flavors can be “mixed, matched and attached” to create your own custom flavor combinations — flavors include Fresh Coconut, Berry Sorbet Shimmer, Vanilla Shimmer, Tropical Pineapple, Strawberry Kiwi, Cool Mint, Refreshing Watermelon and Sweet Peach!
The possibilities? Up to 28 different flavor combinations, so you can basically mix and match until you find your own personal flavor sweet spot! What could be better than that? My favorite of the bunch? Coconut! I always seem to gravitate toward all things coconut, especially as the summer approaches! It reminds me of sunscreen and sitting by the pool all day long!
Thanks so much to ChapStick for sending me this lovely goody bag! Have you tried either line yet, friends? Which flavors are your favorite?? Do you have a ton of ChapStick products roaming around in your beach bag? Happy summer to all… xoxo
