Texture & Taste:

This balm is slightly more solid than the Cocoa Butter one. Still, it applies on smoothly! It has a faint Vanilla scent that is rather pleasant! :)

Packaging:

This lipbalm the usual twist up tube with a plastic cap. I much preferred this packaging over the pots!! I love how portable these are! :)

Time Test:
This lipbalm lasted about 6 hours on my lips, which is ok! :)

Price & Availability:
This balm is priced at 17.90 / US$8. This balm is available at all TBS brick and mortar stores, as well as on the TBS website!

Usage:
I wear this lipbalm during the day under my lipstick / gloss. I also wear them during road trips! My husband wears this too when he goes out fishing in the middle of the sea! :)

My $0.02:

For a lipbalm with SPF, this one is especially moisturizing!! I love how it kept my lips soft and plump! Also, the relieve i get once i apply this unto my chaps is almost instantaneous! The only downside this has that i can think of is that it takes slightly longer to heal your chapped lips. Still, it is a great lipbalm that i would recommend! :)
