I am a big time fruity fragrance lover and I just go ga-ga over anything that is fruity! I have a number of lip balms in my stash which are going to last forever but yet I am a shopaholic and that stash cannot prevent me from picking up some new babies! The triple tropical name just attracted me towards the balms instantly so I chose this set of lip balms to use first! Blistex has been a really good brand as far as lip balms are concerned, so I definitely had good expectations from this fruity stuff! I picked up a pack of 3 of these fruit smoothies to try them. Let’s see whether it lived up-to my expectations or not!
Price: $3.95 for a pack of 3.

My Experience with Blistex Fruit Smoothies SPF 15 Lip Protectant:
Blistex is one of the highest recommended brand when it comes to lip care. To add a little fun I picked up some cute fruit smoothies lip balm rather than those boring medicated ones. These come in a cute purple packaging with fruits all over. It has 3 different variants and I love how they have put 3 different flavours in one pack. The variants are triple tropical, melon medley and berry explosion, they sound exciting and yummy right? They come in a small size and are very travel-friendly. The packaging is fun too and super easy to use. And most importantly they are so decently priced for the amazing quality they offer. I’ll describe each flavour individually pretty quickly!
Berry Explosion: Berry explosion variant has a lavender coloured packaging and the best smelling one from the lot. I personally love this variant since I love strong fruity fragrances. The name is absolutely correct as when you open the lip balm, it smells like a burst of berries which is extremely fruity and sweet. It has a pink coloured bullet but the lip balm does not have any tint to it. The fragrance lasts on your lips till you have the balm on the lips which keeps my lips smelling delicious all day.
Melon Medley: Sweet melon is one of my favourite fruit and this lip balm reminds me of that. It comes in a beautiful light green packaging and has a same candy coloured bullet too. The fragrance of melon medley is pretty mild as compared to the other two. It smells fresh and fruity and is a great option when you are bored with your usual berry and orange lip balms. It smells yummy with a natural melon fragrance and lasts long but lower than the other 2 over-powering ones.
Triple Tropical: This one is my favourite for summer time. It comes in a faded orange coloured packaging and the bullet looks exactly like an orange fruitella. Oh how I miss that candy! The fragrance is a blend of 3 delicious fruits but pineapple dominates the other two. The fragrance also stays for long on the lips and doesn’t fade till the lip balm entirely goes away.
It tastes super sweet and yes I tasted it because I just cannot resist licking my lips especially when I have such delicious lip balms on my lips. The consistency is really soft and smooth during application. Due to its smooth texture, the lip balms gets applied on the lips in an even layer in just one go. But the bullet is so soft that the lip balm melts and bends too much when I apply it. It is softer than our usual lip balms which I don’t like.
It is one of the best lips balms to go for incase you have chapped lips and want to repair them in a few uses. It makes the lips super soft and gives them the necessary hydration making them supple and smooth. Every night application will give you beautiful kissable lips in the morning. I really cannot comment about how the SPF works, but I guess it might be protecting my lips. Overall I loved all 3 variants and if I get a chance I will surely get this pack again.
