I know a song that's called Once upon a December and this lip balm reminds me of those musical notes, perfectly working together like this scent; eucalyptus refreshingly soothing my lips along with ylang ylang.

I’m yet to physically use this, but I’ve smelled it and it’s delicious. It reminds me of a crisp December morning.
I’ve had several other lip balms now and I know this one will be as perfect on my lips as the others ❄️

I was so pleased with this lip balm. I love the film Anastasia so I had to get it! It is very refreshing and moisturizing.

This is my favorite balm ever. I usually don't like things with lavendar essential oils in them, as they tend to smell too strong, but this is amazing!
