Vaseline Queen Bee £3.99 - Link
It's coming round to Christmas and that means the release of another Vaseline lip balm, so when I saw the limited edition bee themed packaging I was instantly drawn into parting ways with my cash and giving Vaseline's Queen Bee a whirl. Vaseline is one of those products that I don't recall a time not having one of their signature tins sitting on my bedside table, and let's face it the little tins soon mount up.
Vaseline's limited edition Queen Bee lip therapy keeps the same formula of the original petroleum jelly teamed with a delicious honey scent to care for dry lips and leave a light glossy sheen. The traditional tin has had a bee makeover, and is what honestly drew me in instantly. Featuring black and gold stripes this will sit pride of place above my other tins on my bedside drawer.
While Vaseline doesn't directly hydrate the lips, instead it acts as a barrier to prevent any additional moisture loss I can't stop using it. I find however this is great for on the go during the colder months - battling the wind, rain and anything else that comes your way, and can make a great topcoat for lipsticks if you are after a super glossy finish. Not only that but I find that is that lovely familiar feeling with twisting your finger around the tin and then dabbing your lips - yes I have flashbacks to carrying a handy tin in my blazer back in my school days.
The limited edition lip balm retails for £3.99 which I think is a fab price, considering Vaseline tins last me forever (and when I say forever I did have one all the way back from 2 years ago which I have safely thrown out today).
I'd love to know which is your go to Vaseline?
