Literary Lip Balms

Mermaid Lagoon Lip Balm


A sunny adventure of grapefruit, lemon and ylang-ylang.

The story: Beautiful but dangerous, mermaids appear have appeared in poems and tales throughout the ages. The bright scent of grapefruit and lemon hits you first, followed by a trace of tropical flowers as alluring as a siren's call.

The product: A conditioning lip balm for dry lips, made with natural butters and essential oils. Organic shea butter and sweet almond oil nourish and soothe the skin, while beeswax locks in moisture and protects your lips from dry and cold weather. The eco-friendly tin contains over twice as much as a standard plastic tube.

What a surprise!

I was not sure about the scent at first, but I now love to put it on! The texture is amazing and so nourishing. It lasts so much longer on my lips than any big brand lipbalm I used to use before and it does do more for me too. I love the packaging. I don't think I am going to go back to anything else again.


The scent is summery - bright and uplifting, but not too overwhelming. As with all LLB balms, it really does take care of your lips and is very moisturising!


I absolutely love mermaids! It's such a great scent combination and makes me look forward to days at the beach! The lip balm will keep your lips moisturised for a really long time. This is definitely a must have for every mermaid fan!

Dreaming of summer with Mermaid Lagoon!

This balm was a lovely surprise in one of my orders and I LOVE it! Perhaps you too were a bit nervous by the words grapefruit, sorbet, and the overall fruity vibe in the description. But boy was I wrong! This is a bright and refreshing scent, with hints of citrus. Definitely not overwhelming--it's a really nice, light balm. Plus how cute is the little tin with Mermaid Lagoon sprawled in calligraphy? If you're looking for a fun and unique balm, add this one to your cart!

Love this scent!

I’ve really loved all the lip balms I’ve bought from this company, and this scent didn’t disappoint! It’s lovely and citrussy and sweet, and it’s very moisturising!
