I recently tweeted saying that I'd purchased something utterly amazing but I wasn't going to tell anyone what it was until it arrived. Anyway, it arrived through my post box this morning so thought I'd share my AMAZING purchase. I'd usually just Instagram something exciting but considering it's THAT good, I thought I'd do a post about it. I also knew that everyone would want one so thought I'd give information about where to buy etc as I knew I'd get a million and one questions about where to buy them from.
So without further ado, here is my utterly amazing purchase, a Yankee Candle lip balm!
I can probably guess that the majority of you said something along the lines of 'OH MY GOD' or 'WOOOOW' when you first clapped eyes on this post as I did the same thing when I discovered them on eBay.
The lip balm contains 4g of product which is the same as most 'twisty uppy' lip balms. Lypsyl and Origins lip balm contains 4g of product whereas Burt's Bees lip balm contains an extra 0.25g... OOFT. You also don't need to use a large amount of the Yankee Candle lip balm as it's smooth and creamy meaning it's going to last you a lifetime.
If you're wondering how the lip balm works, then the bottom of the 'jar' twists and as you twist the product lifts up, it's the same as any other 'twisty uppy' lip balm. As you'll see from the photographs above, the 'lid' pops off and the product is displayed.
The Yankee Candle lip balms can be purchased from eBay and if you live in the USA, they can be purchased from Amazon too. I purchased mine from the UK seller 'collectorboyz' and they currently sell the following flavours; 'Vanilla Cupcake', 'Christmas Cookie', 'Vanilla Lime' and 'Sweet Strawberry'. I'm not sure how many of each flavour they have so if you want one, I'd buy one as soon as possible. I also must mention that shipping is excellent, it was shipped on the day that I purchased it and it only took 2 days to arrived and it's FREE delivery... AMAZING.
You can buy the lip balms from other sellers but I noticed they were selling the lip balms for around £7.00 which is really expensive considering they're worth a couple of dollars in the USA. If you're willing to spend £7.00 then you could choose from other flavours like 'Sparkling Cinnamon', 'Sweet Strawberry' and 'Spiced Pumpkin'.
It's also worth mentioning that the seller 'zini84' has a gift pack of the lip balms for approximately £13.00 (the cheapest on eBay), the pack includes 'Christmas Cookie', 'Vanilla Lime', 'Vanilla Cupcake' and 'Sweet Strawberry'. I will warn you that they aren't a UK seller and shipping is free so god knows when you'd end up getting the pack! But if you're interested in the gift pack there's only one left so get buying before it's gone!
I am so thrilled with this lip balm, so thrilled that I actually purchased 2 of the 'Christmas Cookie' lip balms today. I cannot wait for them to arrive and I'm seriously considering building a collection of the Yankee Candle lip balms as I love them that much.
The question is, will you be buying a Yankee Candle lip balm?
