How’s everyone doing? I am super tired and just want to keep sipping on hot cuppas of tea and coffee and stay in my bed all the time. What else would you want when it is snowing outside!!! This was our first thanksgiving in US. They have great deals, especially on electronics at this time of the year. But crazzzzzy long queues, super cold weather didn’t make shopping easy at all. Even after wearing 4 layers of clothing I was freezing! And people had camped outside the store from past 1 week just to be first in the queue to grab the doorbuster deals. OMG!!! What a dedication to secure your fav gadget in sub-zero temperatures. 😛
Anyways coming back to today’s review. It’s a lip balm which is 99% natural – Yes to Grapefruit naturally smooth lip balm.
What Does Yes To Say About Their Grapefruit Naturally Smooth Lip Balm:
Smooth lip balm on your lips. Notice how the shape matches the curve of your lips. Repeat as needed. Why were lip balms ever round, anyways?
The Formula: A mix of moisturizing Aloe, Cocoa, and Shea Butter deliver intense hydration and moisturization (talk about a triple threat!)
The Flavor: A delicious grapefruit treat to wake you and your gorgeous lips up.
The Packaging: Consumers preferred this sleek, oval shape, because it fits easily everywhere, and applies nicely around lips.
Yes to…an awesome new lip balm with a refreshing flavor that fits just about anywhere!

Packaging: The packaging for Yes To Grapefruit Naturally Smooth Lip Balm is pretty unique and different from other lip balms. It comes in an oval shape container as opposed to regular round and has a small wheel at the bottom of the container to twist the product up.
My Say On Yes To Grapefruit Naturally Smooth Lip Balm:
When I first saw this tube, I was willing to buy it just because of its shape. The packaging was great, and I loved the oval shaped container for the lip balm. Also, the list of natural ingredients intrigued me to buy this. The oval shape glides easily along the contours of your lips.
The product has no color and applies clear on the lips. The lip balm smells exactly like grapefruit which is very prominent, but refreshing and light and disappears in some time after application. It also tastes a bit like grapefruit (or may be it doesn’t have any taste, it’s the fragrance that is doing the trick!!).
But apart from the fact that its oval shape makes it easy to fit in your jean pocket or won’t let it roll off from your desks; it does not deliver what it is intended to do. Its moisturizing properties are not enough for my needs. It applies a bit waxy and it little heavy on lips. Also, it wears off pretty quickly and I feel the need to reapply it instantly. It keep my lips moisturized only till it is sitting on lips. So I kinda reapply within an hour or so. Also, after regular application from past couple of days, I noticed that it is making my lips chapped instead of making them smooth and supple. May be it doesn’t work on dry lips. Also, the twist-up wheel stopped working so it is not retractable any more. I can twist it up but can’t twist it back in the case. 🙁
