Yankee Candle // Lip Balms!?

These two lip products received a lot of attention on Twitter and Instagram yesterday. I'd spotted them in a few hauls last summer from people who had just got back from the US, however the lovely Cole from coleyyyful had blogged about finding some from a UK eBay seller.
I ordered myself the Sweet Strawberry and Christmas Cookie lip balms. They retail at £3.99 each with free postage and packaging. Now for a US product, hard to get your hands on, £3.99 is pretty amazing? Each lip balm has 4g of product. The Sweet Strawberry is my favourite of the two, it smells amazing, it doesn't have the cheap sickly strawberry scent. It smells just like the candle. Christmas Cookie is nice, it's basically vanilla but again smells exactly like the candle version.
They're easy to use, you lift the lid off them like a normal Yankee Candle and twist the bottom like a normal lip balm. They're a bit awkward to use on your lips, since they're wider than most lip balms. But they do an amazing job. They seem as moisturising as my EOS lip balm, that I'm addicted too. They're clearly great enough for my Mum to steal, I mean 'borrow' the Christmas Cookie. I might as well give it to her! I'll of had them for only a day when this goes up, but they did the job, dry lips were banished and still are, plus they taste delicious, now you can actually taste a Yankee Candle.
