Passionfruit Lip Balm


Since becoming a regular member of Instagram, I've come to realise just how amazing and extensive the fan base is for lip balms across the globe. While I knew that Lush had an avid and rather dedicated following, the world of balms and glosses revealed itself to be far greater than I could have ever imagined, and it was this fact that helped me recognise why so many people were incredibly excited when these new lip balms were announced.

Although it was the one I was most excited about trying out, I chose to leave Passionfruit Lip Balm until last - firstly because I was worried I would fall in love with it and never give the other variations a chance, and secondly because I wanted to savour the moment once I finally got around to using it. 

Unfortunately, I was disappointed to discover that this was actually my least favourite lip balm out of the four - an anticlimax if there ever was one!
Don't get me wrong - this lip balm is far from terrible, and I certainly wouldn't be put off from buying another tin at some point in the future. However, I wouldn't necessarily purchase it with the intention of using it strictly as a balm. 

Not only is it a beautiful bright orange colour, but the fragrance it immediately radiates upon removing the lid will leave you salivating and fighting the urge to give it a lick. Containing passionfruit and sweet wild orange oil, this balm smells incredible - like a fresh, fruity glass of Rubicon juice on a hot summer's day. While the scents are not identical, you can definitely see the resemblance between this balm and Oral Pleasure Toothy Tabs, and I only wish that Lush would bring out more products that feature passion fruit as a key component.  
What is immediately noticeable upon opening up this tin is that this product has a different consistency to most of the lip balms that Lush have released in the past. Much like Key Lime, this balm is far more solid, and instead of melting under the fingertips, produces an almost glossy sheen to massage into your lips.  

In the tin, it looks and acts like a solid perfume - melting under the warmth of your finger but not so much that it makes any sort of dent in the mixture. On par with most regular products that you'd expect to find in local pharmacies, Passionfruit Lip Balm is very light once applied and I loved the fact that my lips didn't feel overly greasy once the product was on. 

Despite this, I was disappointed to discover that this was probably the least moisturising out of the four new releases. Although it contains almond oil, cocoa butter and candelilla wax just like the other balms, I didn't find it as nourishing as I did with the others, and the condition of my lips didn't improve as much as they have done when using another product.

For this reason, I chose to use this lip balm as more of a gloss than a balm - applying a layer over the top of my lipstick to give it a gentle sheen and keep my lips lubricated for longer. This worked really well and I have continued to do this ever since. So while I wouldn't necessarily recommend this as being a really nourishing balm to use on the lips, Passionfruit Lip Balm does have its purpose - if only to bring it out once in a while and give it a sniff!
