Friday Flash Review: Clarins Crystal Lip Balm

Clarins Crystal Lip Balm

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!”

  1. Mmmm those sounds delicious! Although I think I’ll keep them on my lips! LOL

  2. These are amazing- I’ve been loving mine. Love the lollypop transparency, love the texture on lips- obsessed! Everyone should buy all 3!

  3. Shhh, that’s not bad. When I was five I ate an entire bar of white chocolate soap.

  4. HAHA! You are amazing. I once ate some washing up liquid, because it looked so delicious. Wish I could say it was ages ago, but no, more like six months :<

    They doo look irresistable though. So beautiful!

  5. I was planning on saving some money, but uh my gosh! These are irresistible! I’ve decided to get all 3 haha Great post Ruth!

  6. lool I imagine your lip balm missing a chunk ;) they do look yummy

    I ate toothpaste when I was in kindergarten and made the whole class do the same :))

  7. I love love love these, Like SKIN DEEP I’m obsessed with the one that I have, being a lipgloss girl I love the drama of applying this “lipgloss” in disguise. And yep they do smell almost edible, I said almost!

    Again another post to highlight the reason why I gave up my credit card. Restraint, it’s so fricken hard when you keep posting all these good value desirable treats.

  8. Lol Ruth you nutter and there i was thinking you thought i was bonkers??? Are you trying to be a mini me????? LMAO!

    OOOoooohhh BTW I got my glossybox today! Woooooohoooo it is brilliant! The products come to well over £75! One of them infact is worth…..£49! Yup that is not a typo error! Have you got yours yet???? xxx

  9. LMAO Sylvia and Tora! May i ask? What did the white chocolate soap taste like??? Plus Tora washing up liquid?? Which one was it BTW? You have both made me giggle away both of you! Thank You! Lol! xxx
