Sweet Cecily’s Cocktail lip balms

As you may already know I have a slight lip balm obsession. I’ve purchased all the Maybelline Babylips and am working towards buying all of the Clinique Chubby Sticks too. Lip balm for me is definitely a desert Island kinda product.

Sweet Cecilys is a brand I came across a good few months ago on Zoella’s Instagram. I remember instantly thinking how beautiful the packaging was. The brand is known for their ‘cocktail inspired’ lip balms and with the current range doing so well they have introduced a new one which will be on general release soon.

I got to try out 2 of the best sellers along with one that is currently unreleased. The lip balms arrive packaged in paper and a branded ribbon. 10 points from me already! The balms contain Shea, Cocoa, Beeswax and Almond (varying in oils and butters) this provides a good amount of nourishment to the lips. The products are made without synthetic ingredients. All are packed  in a 10ml tin, which is the perfect size for travel as well as general daily use. They are priced at £2.95 each so are totally affordable.

Mojito flavour Lip Balm
I love a good virgin Mojito, the freshness of it is what makes it so great. This lip balm smells identical to a Mojito or even Sprite, you can smell the mint as well as the zingy lime.

Pina Colada flavour Lip Balm
This lip balm smells tropical, I instantly remember the sun and the sea when wearing it. Unlike the Mojito flavour lip balm, this one is a little more subtle but you can definitely smell sweet pineapple.

Espresso Martini flavour Lip Balm (to be released)
I don’t drink coffee; never have, never will. The smell from this lip balm was evident even before I opened it up, it smelt identical to coffee, really strong. Seen as I wasn’t the best person to review this I asked someone who was and they said it smelt devine and as an avid coffee drinker they've already claimed it. 

When you initially apply the lip balm it doesn’t feel like it will blend in, but with the heat from your skin it melts into the lips and applies a good layer of moisture. For the amount of moisture it provides it doesn’t feel heavy on the lips at all. This lasts for a good few hours and your lips feel well nourished. You can leave as is or apply your normal lip product of choice over the top. If you normally stay away from these type of pots because of germs you can apply it directly from the pot! It really is a great size for traveling with.

Overall, the cocktail lip balm range from Sweet Cecily’s is really good. The packaging is gorgeous and the ingredients are of good quality. For £2.95 you can’t really go wrong. They also have other flavoured lip balm such as Banoffee, Strawberries and Cream, Chocolate and more!

Have you tried any of these products before? Thoughts on flavoured lip balms?

  1. I have been wanting to try these for ages! I keep putting them in my basket on notonthehighstreet and never actually getting them. Mojitos and Pina Coladas are my favourite cocktails, so these are so perfect for me! xx
