Love and Toast Lip Balm in Prickly Pear Review

Love And Toast Prickly Pear
Once in a while, you see something that catches your eye and just screams for you to get a hold of it. One day, I was passing through Whole Foods and encountered this little gem. I put it in my cart and simply could not say no. And by the time I did my finalizing while waiting at the register, I still could not put this adorable tiny thing down. Here's my review of Love & Toast Lip Balm!


Key Ingredients from the website Love & Toast:
Organic extra virgin olive oil, Beeswax, Organic jojoba oil, Shea butter, Cocoa butter, Delicious love&toast flavor, Organic hemp seed oil, Aloe vera oil, Vitamin E, Stevia.


I just noticed right now that it does include Stevia. Not sure how I feel about adding sugar to the formula... Perhaps it's to make it taste better? Not sure. I know it doesn't really taste sweet though, when I lick my lips.

Packaging: (5/5)

While tubs aren't exactly the most hygienic packages, they always appear cuter. And plus I'm a sucker for super cute packaging in a tub. The clear plastic is hard and almost glass-like. The top cover is such an adorable super cute cover. I can't get enough of looking at it.


Formula: (3/5)

The formula is a thin wax, very emollient when swatched with my fingers. On my lips, it adds a very slight shine, but goes away after a couple of minutes. It's moisturizing upon initial application but then goes away after a few hours.

Pricing & Availability: (4/5)
For $9.00, I think I expected a little better from a lip balm. It's easily available at Whole Foods or organic food supplies, and Love & Toast's website.

Overall:
If you have really dry lips and want something for chapping, this probably isn't for you. If you want something really cute and semi-moisturizing, then this could be for you.
