Jack Black Vanilla and Lavender Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 15|
Let me tell you.
My lips have always been ridiculously picky when it comes to lip balms. I’ve tried Softlips and hated it. I’ve tried EOS and really fuckin’ hated it. I’ve tried Korres lip butters and that was just the worst. I like Carmex. It’s okay, but it can also be a little much greasy for me.
So what the hell am I going to try that’ll cooperate with me?
Jack Black, obviously. I bought one after both Christine and Leesha said this brand is amazing. So when my local JCSephora finally opened last year, I saw a set of two sold for 10$ and purchased the set to try it out.
That was one of the best decisions I ever made. My extremely dry, cracked, and chapped lips have finally found a formula that was absolutely wonderful. I could put this on in the morning (or just before I apply lipstick), have it wear off completely, and my lips will still be happy by nighttime. Most lip balms would just dry out my lips even more.
Now… I have to say something negative about this particular scent, Vanilla and Lavender. I loathe it. Ugh. When I had the duo, it was Black Tea and something else and Grapefruit and Ginger. Those were lovely scents. I got this one because it said vanilla (and Mango Mandarin isn’t available on its own at Sephora so…). I like vanilla. The reviews said it was more vanilla than lavender but that’s incorrect. I don’t smell vanilla in this at all. It’s all lavender. And it’s nauseating. Fortunately, the scent does go away in a few minutes.
I will definitely continue to repurchase these lip balms. I’m just not going to buy this scent ever again.
Now if only my JCSephora didn’t stop selling Jack Black products.
