Nanny Rose's Queen Bee Lip Balm in Raspberry Cheesecake

When i received a sample kit from Nanny Rose, this is actually the first that i opened. The words "four slices of raspberry cheesecake" on the box just screams at me! haha!

Everyone likes cheesecakes, ne?
Oops! I remember, i know someone who doesn't like cheesecake. hehe

Let's get back...
Presenting Nanny Rose's Queen Bee Lip Balm in Four Slices of Raspberry Cheesecake.. boy! that is long!

Feel free to read the description...

Hmmm.... honey & raspberry sounds like something that would be able to send you to the land of sweet treats!  It is a non-colored balm on a tin pot.

When you pop it open, you'll be greeted by the scent of raspberries bagging you to quickly apply it on your lips. I did, closed my eyes & inhaled it & was entranced by the sweet scent of raspberries!

I'm not sure about the cheesecake though but at that point, i don't care the pure scent of raspberries are engulfing me on a quick trip to a raspberry farm! There i was, imagining myself happily humming & skip-hopping with a basket of raspberries just by the scent of this.

I highly recommend this to whoever like their lip balms scented. I am not really a fan of scented lip balms but this one is something that i could forgive. It stays on your lips but not something that would give you a migraine. If you pout your lips every now & then you might get a whiff of it.

It's not that waxy, which is ok.
It has that little waxy feeling but since you get to control the amount you put on your lips so it's not that big of a deal compare to tube balms.

As for it being moisturizing... i'm not sure. I have said before that the reason why i never did like using lip butters & a few selected lip balms is that it doesn't really provide any "moisturization" on my lips. What it does is locks in any moisture that was on my lips, making sure that it won;t evaporate leaving my lips dry. I think this is the same with this product.

It locks in the moisture on my lips, sealing it in place, but not really hydrating it.
Here are the ingredients:

No colorants, parabens, phthalates & sulfates free!
Yay for products that are natural!

I never did like lip products that are in a pot. I find it unhygienic all because you would have to use a separate lip brush just to get it. You can use your fingers but i think you risk contaminating it if you have dirty hands. But of course, this is just my personal preference.

If you like raspberry scents, natural products & do not mind balms in pot then i would recommend this for you.
I'm sorry but i'm not sure how much this is. i'll check it once i go to Watsons, but i'm sure that it will be worth your money since you don't need to apply much. A pot contains 10g of it compare to ordinary tube balms which would contain less.

  • locally made & easily available in Watsons
  • the scent is nice & not overwhelming
  • tiny packaging but boasts 10g of product!
  • not hydrating enough for me
  • a bit waxy but not disturbing
  • no spf

Will i buy it?
Nah, i think this pot is enough for me.
A little goes a long way for this product. it lasts for a long time even with you drinking & eating.

They have a waxing kit too. I also have it & has been testing it.
I'm not sure if i like it though so it will take me a while before i can have my final say on it. I'll do a post about it sometime soon.

Hope you all are having a great Monday!
Jaa ne~!

Saw this in Watsons last weekend. By the sound of it, super delicious raspberry yung scent because you visualized a raspberry farm! :D I also prefer lip balm in stick form and not in pots para mas hygienic. And I don't know if it's just me, but there's this thing about lip balm in pots na matagal siya maubos, like more than 2 years (just like my The Body Shop Born Lippy).

Thiamere Brea said...

that's so totally true,sis!
mas marami kasi ang product pero sakin matagal talaga maubos kasi hindi ko sya gano ginagamit kasi nga ayoko ng dini-dip yung finger ko sa pot.. maliban na lang pag super tamad na ko.. hahaha!

aiMee Bunbun said...

DeBi said...

Diane said...

haha thought it's just me.. don't like dipping my finger on pots.. i prefer pa rin tube type or stick ^^ thanks for sharing, tempting sya infairness.

Thiamere Brea said... smells delicioso, but it has no taste

Thiamere Brea said...

Thiamere Brea said...

they also have hand & foot lotions!

Thiamere Brea said...

Thiamere Brea said...

haha! right!
but i'm not sure where the cheesecake went but the raspberry is divine!

Thiamere Brea said...

de sho?
i really find it unhygienic e. im so tamad pa naman to look for brushes lalo na when my lips needed protection asap

the doll princess said...

I've been eyeing this at Watson's but I guess Nivea would still work the best for me <3

btw, I've tagged you! :D

Clair said...

Pass muna ako sa lip balm but I will definitely try the hand and foot lotions one of these days!

PinkChinadoll said...

I love the smell of it although very inconvenient to use, I have to bring a lip brush every time I have to use it hehehe

Thiamere Brea said...

i recommend their hand & elbow lotion better than this!

Thiamere Brea said...

tama... i hate lip pots!

Thiamere Brea said...

i used to love Nivea but when they changed their formula hindi ko na nagustuhan...too bad!

I was contacted by B.liv weeks ago to try out their products. I have been so lazy in applying any skin care products lately that i can alrea...
