Balmshot: A Better Designed Lip Balm For Mother’s Day

Balmshot – A Better Designed Lip Balm

balmshot

I am going to revisit one of my favourite “beauty” products from last year. Balmshot. This isn’t my first mention of Balmshot lip balms. My previous review can be found here. We have been using these lip balms now for almost 6 months, and we love them more than ever.

Alberta is so dry, especially in the winter, and this past winter was very cold. My 9 year old has very very dry lips that not only get chapped, they peel, crack and bleed. It has proved challenging to find him lip balms that he will actually use for several reasons. A lot of the other brands of lip balms “sting” when he uses them, and the ones that don’t sting don’t seem to help heal or protect his lips.

This winter he used the Balmshot lip balms exclusively. In October/November of last year, his lips were so sore, split, and tender. With the help of a prescription, his lips healed but its important that he uses a good quality lip balm several times every day. The Balmshot lip balms helped. His lips are healthier, and they haven’t split or cracked since before Christmas time. He kept one in his coat pocket, and another in his back pack so that he always had one on him. Because of the amazing design, he never lost a lid and the lip balm never got all squished up in the lid either.
