Is this not the cutest lip balm you’ve ever seen? It’s by Tony Moly, a Korean brand that’s products are absolutely adorably packaged. It’s recently been popping up at retailers like Sephora and Urban Outfitters and intrigued me. Lucky for me, my friend gave it to me for my birthday! This clear lip balm retails for $9 at Sephora and comes in blueberry, which is what I have, and honey, which comes in a red metallic lip rather than a pink one.
FUN FACT: Bbo Bbo means Kiss in Korean!
What Tony Moly Says:
“Bbo Bbo Lip Balm’s light texture makes lips feel like honey. It is a cult-favorite amongst Korean pop stars, and “Bbo Bbo” means “kiss” in Korea. This clear-colored balm is infused with hydrating ingredients that include vitamin E and either honey or blueberry extract. Its soft fragrance leaves lips with an irresistible scent, and it’s great for wearing alone or layering with your favorite lipstick.”
Packaging: Too cute to handle! I can’t get enough of these metallic pink lips! My only issue is that because this lip balm comes in a pot and not in a squeeze tube or stick, it has to be applied with one’s fingers. For me, that makes this more of a bedside table lip balm than a keep in my purse all day lip balm.
Scent: Blueberry! I’m a berry fanatic so I LOVE this scent/flavor.
Texture & Effectiveness: This has just enough slip to make it not “gunky” or impossible to get product out of. It still takes a couple dips to cover your lips, but it’s not a big deal. I find it to be quite effective at moisturizing the lips. It stayed on for at least a couple hours and left my lips visibly less chapped. Especially in winter, lip balm is a necessity. This one is great!
Wrap-Up: If you’re willing to go above drugstore for a lip balm and don’t mind dipping your fingers in, this is an adorable and effective choice!
