Lip balm is one of the products that are hardly discussed yet it is one of the essentials in our daily life. We will go through a phase whereby our lips became chapped and flaky, so we tried our best to stock up our lips with different types of lip treatment from natural homemade lip balm to lip mask. Especially to those who have a serious chapped dry lips would bring along various lip treatment in their pocket.
As I am going through my day, under scorching sun with dehydrated lips, I would carry along a lip balm with me. There are various lip balm displayed in our beauty pharmacies, but most recommended brand that I’ve ever received is from Lip Ice. Therefore, I am testing out Lip Ice Fruity Lip Balm x LINE Friends. We have always know that Lip Ice is a staple brand that sells lip balms with various types and flavours. It is also known for their cute and fancy packaging. So, keep on reading if you are interested in this collaboration lip balm.
Lip Ice Fruity Lip Balm collaborated with LINE Friends and created three flavors of lip balm; Lemon, Strawberry and Apple. Each of the flavors represented by LINE Friends mascots; Sally, Cony and Brown respectively and each with with a pleasant scent.
The Lemon Lip Balm smells like a real lemon, but more like a lemon cake which it makes me feels like smacking my lips and want to eat it. As for the Strawberry, it has a sweet sugary smell, like a strawberry lollipop. And as for the Apple, it smells like an apple candy that we used to eat when we were kids. All of their flavors are approved and safe to use.
This time, Lip Ice Fruity Lip Balm x LINE Friends has a special place in my heart and their packaging gets 10 out of 10!!! Their concept of juice-in-a-cup completely grabbed my attention the moment I saw it. It is too cute and adorable that made me feel sorry to open it. Also, the printed the mascot on the packaging allows the buyer to easily differentiate between them.
Just like other chap sticks, it has a retractable tube packaging. It is lightweight that you can easily bring any where, slim where you can slip it into your purse or even pockets and cute packaging that you can show it off to anyone! Although it is clear and there is no tint because it is a lip balm, the scent is enough to make me in love with it. It is not too strong but still you can smell it from the packaging.
When I first open it to separate it from the wrapper, I could smell the scent inside the wrapper. How strong is the scent! But don’t worry because the scent is not that strong when you apply it on the lips. I keep on opening the cap to sniff it because it is so fruity good!
BEFORE AND AFTER
As you can see, my lips are dry and pale because lack of hydration. So, I am applying Strawberry on my lips and leave it for 3 minutes. After 3 minutes, I can see my lips are softer and hydrated. Instead of looking pale and dry, it is more to glossy and healthy.

The packaging won my heart and gets a 10 out of 10. As for the formulation, I would rate it 8.5 out of 10. Overall, I would give 9 out of 10. It is actually good for my lips, and I do love it. However, as time goes by I could feel that it leaves a little bit greasy texture. It is not something that too serious but for those that easily distracted with greasy feels, may need to skip this. However, it is still a good lip balm for daily use because you can easily retouch it.
