Blistex Raspberry Lemonade Blast

I've mentioned it briefly before, and now I've hit the end of this amazing lip balm, I thought now was the time to fully declare my love for the lip treat that is the Blistex Raspberry Lemonade Blast.  I actually first bought this last year in the airport whilst I was waiting for my flight to Cancun as it had the added SPF 15 to add a little extra care to my lips in the scorching heat, but it has been a regular in my top drawer at work ever since.

Blistex Raspberry Lemonade Blast Review

The name says it all to be honest - Raspberry Lemonade.  This is probably the nicest smelling, and tasting lip balm that has ever graced my lips (although the other Blistex Blast that I bought recently comes extremely close...).  I am often disappointed when I buy lip balms, because the '"flavour" sells it to me, and I'm usually left with little to no taste, or a horrendous artificial taste.  To me, the Blistex Raspberry Lemonade Blast tastes and smells like I have a mouthful of Skittles.  It's sweet, but slightly sharp and I can't even tell you how much I love it.  You can taste it every time you breathe in!  The scent and taste does die down, but it's still a nice treat!

It comes in a standard twist up tube, and application is super easy - twist, and swipe.  It has moisturising jojoba as well as Vitamins C & E and leaves my lips feeling super smooth and hydrated.  I think it applies quite thickly, and leaves a long lasting, moisturised feeling - although mine did get a bit melted in Mexico last year so I'm not sure if the super thick feeling developed from resetting itself, as my other flavour of Blistex Blast isn't this buttery.

The lip balm itself is a milky white, but applies colourless.  I'd love to see this with a raspberry tint to it!  I absolutely love this lip balm, and for the bargain price of £1.75, it's one that I'd definitely be picking up again ahead of my Burts Bees lip balms!

Have you tried any of the Blistex Blasts?  What's your favourite lip balm?
