    Tastes sweet !

    Anything orange is my immediate to buy and I new I was going to adore this one before I had it in my hands. IT'S A YES FROM ME :)

    Smells so good

    I love this scent, I bought the soap bar first and then this lip balm. Really moisturising as well, so good for my dry lips.


    Beautiful gifts

    Amazing scent, unique & beautiful

    After loving my Moby Dickens lip balm so much I thought I would give this a try as I am a huge fan of rose geranium, mandarin and patchouli.

    This is a beautiful lip balm, thick texture that stays on for ages, the scent is so calming & uplifting. I love putting mine on before bed as well as carrying it around in my bag. The colour is super pretty, I love the packaging and how eco friendly it is. I am a huge fan of the formula as well. I will 100% be buying a new one soon as mine is being used a lot!

    Love this stuff

    I can’t get over how good these products are
