Another month, another lip balm review from yours truly. What can I say? I’m almost as addicted to trying out new lip balms as I am to Blade & Soul, or comic books, or skincare. It’s a definitely a thing for me. This time around, I’m reviewing two lip balms from Kiyi Kiyi Soap, a Minnesota-based brand that I found on Etsy while searching for Turkish Delight scented/flavored beauty products. I’ve mentioned before that I have a tendency to go on scent sprees where I just search for something with a specific note or flavor – cardamom, melon, cherry blossom, and now Turkish Delight.
Kiyi Kiyi Soap has a lot of unique flavors to choose from in their balm selection – this is what drew me to the shop in the first place, as mentioned above. I’d recently finished off Epically Epic Soap’s Turkish Delight lip balm and loved it, but their shop was on a break and I needed to replenish my balm supply ASAP. So when I found Kiyi Kiyi Soap’s Persian Love Cake flavor, it seemed much in the same vein:
Exotic Persian Love Cake lip balm! Rose water and sweet buttercream cupcake flavors combine in a tasty treat to nourish your lips with mango butter. Plus it’s pink!
This balm was made to recreate one of my favorite cake recipes – Persian Love Cake. It combines rose water and delicious buttercream frosting. Yum!
I’m really coming around to light rose (and floral in general) flavors in my lip products, so rosewater is pretty much exactly on target. And mixed with sugary buttercream? Um, sounds delicious.
When I discovered that they also had a Lingonberry flavor – blame the absolutely delicious Lingonberry preserve in my recent Try the World Sweden Box for getting me hooked on this one – I was totally sold. I tossed the two balms into my cart and the deal was done!
