Literary Lip Balms

Magnolia Warrior Lip Balm


Orange orchards in bloom on a moonlit summer evening.

The story: A feminine scent that honours the ancient Chinese legend of Mulan. The sweet freshness of mandarin floats above a fragrant heart of orange blossom and white magnolia, reflecting the serenity of an Oriental garden.

The product: An all-natural moisturising lip balm made with organic shea butter and pure essential oils. The eco-friendly tin contains over twice as much as a standard plastic tube.

Customer Reviews

Based on 2 reviews

This lip balm is lovely, the fragrance is gorgeous, it lasts ages and keeps my lips really soft. Every time I use it, it makes me smile. I love the packaging, delivery was fast and the little personal touches are so nice. I also ordered some lotion bars and another lip balm. 5 stars all round. Honestly, treat yourself - it’s like ordering a little box of joy.

Florals for Days

I only just received this lip balm today and honestly I'm floored. The scent is INCREDIBLE. I've always been deeply fond of neroli as a scent (it reminds me of Italy), and this lip balm does not hold back. Being able to breathe deep and smell the bitter orange blossoms with each inhale is so soothing. The only issues is that the ingredients on the tin are not the same as the ones on the website page. It honestly doesn't impact the quality of the balm one bit, but it may impact folks' choices to purchase or not. Either way. I'm absolutely stunned and very happy with this lip balm. Would definitely recommend for anyone who loves strong floral scents.
