Secret Santa/Stocking Stuffer Idea: Chapstick Hot Lips Kit

I was out shopping in Asda the other day - as you do! And came across this little lipbalm kit for £3.50 all packaged in a little tin and perfect as a cheap present for putting in someones stocking or to give as a secret santa gift like doing (not the same one as I'm reviewing, don't worry!). 

The Basics
In this kit you get three Chapsticks - Cherry, Strawberry and Apple, all packaged in a pretty nifty little tin that will be useful even when the Chapsticks gone. They all have an SPF to them, but not of the same factor which is rather random - the Apple and Cherry ones both have SPF15 and the Strawberry SPF10. And theres not much else to say really, except for theres different patterns available on the tins, I liked the polka dot one though! 

Mini Review
All three have their own scents all of which are quite artificial but for me not overly or in a really horrible way, there isn't much of a taste to them either. After I've first applied them they feel a bit waxy and tend to sit on top of the lips which I hate. But after a few minutes they warm up with your lips and feel a lot better. So I guess it's no biggie! Once they're on the lips they last for AGES! I would probably only have to reapply about 4 times a day, which for me is very minimal! 

Now I've finally tried the famous Chapsticks! And they're pretty alright, not amazing for me though! 


I'd probably be pretty happy to receive one of these little sets as a present this Christmas - well if I didn't have one already anyway! They're great value and an easy gift for people you don't know so well - what kinda girl doesn't wear a bit of lipbalm now and again! Anyway if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask and thanks for stopping by, H :)


  1. I'm always tempted to eat my apple chapstick...says it all! x

  2. Hi, just out of interest what camera do you use?
    great post I really enjoy reading what you write!:)

  3. @ Jenny - I don't blame you, I've been tempted to lick my lips more than once!

    @ ♥JessicaLucy♥ - It's a pretty standard happy snappy camera - Olympus µ850SW that I've had for a few years now. I do edit a few of my pictures too using to get my pictures more representative of what you'll see the products like in real life. I hope that was helpful as I'm not much of a camera person!


I really appreciate all your lovely comments and I'll get back to you as soon as possible. But if you want a quick response try tweeting me, @MidnightViolet1 Thanks for reading my post, Hannah :)
