Best lip balm I've ever had

Found Literary Lip Balls at a craft fair in inchicore and I bought some more as a result! Honestly it makes my lips so soft and it feels so nice on my skin. The smells are divine!

Robin Degan
Love this!

Such a lovely scent! It reminds me of a chocolate coffee house (those exist, right?), and it just smells divine! Not overpowering, at all, and works great! Definitely a new favorite of mine.


Stop !!! Stop and buy this right now BECAUSE this is THE BEST lip balm !!! I'm not even a fan of cocoa or coffee and I think it's the absolute best !!! Moisturises my lips perfectly, leaving a sweet aroma and taste :) SOOO KISSABLE !

Gorgeous glossy lip balm

This lip balm has a lovely subtle scent. It applies as smooth as silk and leaves a fab gleaming shine on your lips. One use gets rid of the first sign of dryness. Would definitely recommend!

Sophie Hutchings

This is my second one of this lip balm, honestly I adore it. The texture is thick, luxurious and goes on so well, I have had eczema on my top lip the past week and this is the only thing that hasn’t been sting it!

The smell is natural and subtle, perfect for every day and night use. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
