I know I’ve mentioned this before in a previous post, but Lip Smacker was one of the first beauty products I found out about and started wearing. The flavours, the scents.. everything drew me in. What young girl didn’t want to collect them all and keep one (or a few) with her at all times? Now flash forward today and I can’t help but still reminisce about that time in my life and how it means more to me now than ever before. I think about it so fondly now because one day I will get to share my first beauty love with my own daughter and get her as obsessed with them as I used to be and frankly, still am.
Lip Smacker has come a long way since I discovered them in my childhood. They still have the classic lip balms like Dr. Pepper, Watermelon, Strawberry, and the list goes on, and they’ve released new balms over recent years that target young and old adults alike with their Coffee House Party Pack and launching balms in packaging that makes it necessary to buy at least 2 of so you can put one on display.
They are always staying innovative and fun with their new product lines which still gets me excited to add to my collection but also excited for when my daughter can start wearing lip balm. I’ve got quite a few years until that time comes, since she hasn’t even been born yet, but that will not stop me from introducing her to my collection and telling her all about my childhood experiences with Lip Smacker.
One of their new launches comes in the form of their Disney Emoji Flip Balm’s. Not only does this merge the love I have for Lip Smacker lip balms but also for Disney anything. The Disney Emoji Flip Balm’s ($4.95) feature a different emoji expression on each side of the balm that flips open to reveal a yummy flavour within and also comes with 7.4 grams of product. For instance, they have Disney princesses like Belle from Beauty and the Beast who, of course, is scented/flavoured with rose. And there is also Cinderella who has a berry scent/flavour. You can also get the Mickey & Minnie Duo ($9.49) where Mickey has a birthday/vanilla cake scent and Minnie smells like strawberries. Each one has a different scent/flavour to them and that’s another thing about them that makes them fun to collect.
The next new collection that I cannot wait to show my daughter is the new Lippy Pal Lip Balm Trio’s ($10.99). It’s an adorable collection featuring cute little animals on the packaging that contain fun flavours inside. Each of these Lippy Pal’s come from different trio’s and the pink Fox is flavoured with apples, the Panda Bear has a cream puff flavour, and the Kitten has a watermelon flavour. There really isn’t a rhyme or reason to most of the flavour and animal pairings but it just goes to show how different each one can be and how addictive they are to collect.
These are absolutely collection-building worthy and are so cute to display on your vanity or pull out of your purse. Gone are the days when lip balm used to nothing fancy to look at and just something you put on your lips and toss back quickly into your bag. Now you can show them off and have fun collecting them especially if you’re like me and love anything Disney related and anything with adorable animal packaging. This makes the experience of applying lip balm more exciting than it used to be and even though Lip Smacker balms were pretty exciting to buy and wear back when I was a kid, it’s even more exciting now because of how far the brand has come and I can’t wait to share that with my daughter. I don’t want her to grow up too quickly by getting her into makeup at a young age (even though I’m so excited and anxious to) but lip balm is something you can get a kid into before all of that because not only is it beauty related but it also gets them in the habit of starting to take care of their skin as they grow up and that is something I absolutely want to pass down to my baby girl.
What do you think of the Lip Smacker Disney Emoji Flip Balms and Lippy Pal Trio’s? If you have kids or are pregnant like me, what are some beauty traditions you have or are going to be passing down to them?! Share your thoughts below!
