It's Skin Macaron Lip Balm: Strawberry Review

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Ever buy something because of its adorable packaging only to find that its product is pretty good too? I have. This It's Skin Macaron Lip Balm in Strawberry is one of those items for me. I totally purchased this because of its cute macaron shape. I mean come on, just look at it, if you like macaron products, you are going to love this.

Anyways, since this is a lip balm, it didn't really cost much either. When I bought it, I figured that if I don't like it, it'll still be cute to look at and I didn't loose a fortune over it or anything. However, when I opened it, took a sniff and tried it out, oh man, did I fall in love. Read on to learn more!

Packaging: I think it goes without saying that the packaging is A+! Super adorable and functions well too. The lip balm is in the shape of a macaron. It looks pretty life-like too. The outer packaging it comes with have information about the lip balm, although most are in Korean. This is a lip balm that will need the use of fingers to apply, so some might not find it sanitary. 

Scent: I love the scent. It smells like strawberry candy. It's a super sweet and lovely scent. I like that the scent doesn't really smell artificial, even though it is. 

Color: The balm is light opaque pink in color. The pink is so light that it's not noticeable at all when applied. 

Texture: It's got the same texture as most lips balms to be honest.

My Thoughts: I'm sure you can already tell that I really like this lip balm. It can be a pain to apply it with my fingers, however, I still like to use it. It's sweet strawberry scent is just so delightful, I always find myself reaching for this lip balm. While this lip balm is travel friendly, I usually keep this for at home uses only. Again, it's due to sanitary finger reasons, but that's a personal reason. 

Aside from its amazing scent, I also like this lip balm because it's great at moisturizing my lips and helps to retain that moisture too. So I don't have to reapply as often as I do with some other lip balm. The formula is soft and not thick at all, making it easy to apply. It's also not sticky, so I don't have to worry about sticky lips. 

I do think these lip balms are great for day to day uses to keep the lips moisturized and soft. They do their jobs well. Plus they aren't expensive either. Or I guess, that also depends on where you buy them from. I should also mention that this lip balm doesn't really taste good. It's got a sweet taste, when I lick my lips after I apply it, however, it's still got that lip balmy waxy taste as well.

Final Thoughts: Overall, I really like this lip balm. It smells amazing and moisturizes the lips well. It's got a con that can make it not so pleasing, but I think we always find ways to work around those for the things we love, so the con won't be that bad. 

Would I repurchase this in the future? Probably. I do want to try out the other flavors as well, but I really like strawberry scented products, so there's a high chance I'll buy this again. Do I think this is worth a try? Heck yes. It's a super cute macaron-shaped lip balm with a sweet scent! How can you not want to try this?
