Once you remove it from the package, you get the tin.

Just wanted to show you a picture of the product from another view other than top & bottom

It's not screw type, its just a tin & a metal lid


I'm gonna be honest, I've never smelt raspberries before. But this smells like berries. 


It is a lip butter. If you were worried that it doesn't glide easily, well, worry not. It glides really really easy. It looks like a regular balm but it is in fact buttery and easy to obtain. Just be careful not to scoop out too much which was what I did the first time.

Size reference:

Truthfully, when I read blog posts about this product online, pictures can be so deceiving. It's not as big as it looks. For reference, I took a picture of this together with a regular sized lip balm. Can you see how small it actually is?

My Experience:

Well, in the texture section, I mentioned I scooped out too much right? Well, yea, that's what happened. I assumed it was balm like since it looked balm like. But little did I know that it was buttery, really buttery. Silly me. :P It glides really well on my lips. Really love the smell of it. But I didn't really like how it left a white film like cast on my lips. So, I use this only at night. I use my other lip balm in the mornings which I will blog about soon. Lips felt smooth the day after.


Smells heavenly (if you love fruity smell)
Large quantity which can last really long


Unhygienic (but I don't mind & all lip butters are like this actually)
Leaves white like film on lips
Not available in Malaysia ( but you guys can get it in iHerb)


It works well as a lip butter & leaves your lips feeling smooth & supple the very next day if you apply this at night before you sleep

Will I repurchase?:

Yes, definitely! I would love to try out the other scents as well.

Note: Once again, I would love to recommend iHerb to all of you who can't get this product locally. If you are a first time shopper at iHerb, do use the code KDB598 for USD10 off your first purchase. I can't stress enough that this code can only be used once & only during your first purchase, so use it well.
