This week’s Friday Flash Review is brought to you from Sicksville, Nausea City.
“OK, I’m going to let you into a little secret. Something that I’ve done that was all rather silly but couldn’t be helped. I mean literally couldn’t be helped. If someone had put me in a strangle-hold and told me not to do it, the silly thing, I’d have still raised that Clarins Crystal Lip Balm to my lips and taken a bite.
It just tastes so bloody irresistible! I challenge you to try a sample at the Clarins counter and not want to eat it. Some evil developer at Clarins HQ has purposefully made this lip balm with eating in mind – but then forgotten to actually make it edible. Hence the slight tummy ache.
(Yes, I swallowed it! What would be the point of me researching things for you if I didn’t do it properly?)
The one I ate was the orange one – centre stage – which is just as juicy and orangey as an Orange Maid ice-lolly. I suppose you’d like to know how it fares as a cosmetic? Very well thank-you! The part not in my tummy is on my lips, and although the coral colour is very, very subtle the texture of the balm is soft and smoothing. And orangey… Going in for seconds, please do excuse me!”
