I have had this lipbalm, or lip smacker as it is called for a while now. I think I paid around £1.50 for it in Primark. I'm not a fan of the Coca Cola drink as I find it too sugary, but I was curious about this and how similar it would taste to the drink it was advertising.
The lipbalm comes in a small tube with the traditional red and white coca cola packaging. When you open the lid, there is a faint cola smell, and the balm itself is a dark brown colour, similar again to the colour of the drink.
I find that this lipbalm goes on really easily. The lipbalm does have a hint of cola in the taste, but it's not too sweet or overpowering. It reminds me of the Coca Cola that you get in some pubs that is made with syrup though I do like that taste anyway.
After application, my lips look like they have a slight sheen, with a natural light brown gloss. It's definitely not as dark as it looks in the tube. My lips feel really moisturised and soft with a slight gloss. It is a long lasting lipbalm that you don't have to apply too frequently (though I often do, since I have a tendency to lick my lips - oops).
These are available in Primark, Claire's Accessories and online, though P + P can be expensive online. I have also seen gift sets with different lip smackers in various shops, which are around £5 - £10.
While I don't feel that this is one of the more moisturising lipbalms that I have tried, it is definitely one of the tastiest. When this one is finished, I will definitely be buying another. I had bought one of the metallic tins, but I didn't get on with it at all, I think the stick of balm is easier to use and more effective.

I bought this lip balm about a year and a half ago now from Primark and I paid around a pound for it I think.
There were lots of different 'flavoured' soda pop lip balms to choose from like Sprite and Dr Pepper but I decided to get the Coca Cola one, which comes in a little shiny red tube and looks adorable! It has the Coca Cola brand name on it and the packaging is really eye catching and it's small too so it fits easily in my make-up bag without taking up a lot of room.
The lid is a little fiddly to pull off and the lip balm its self is red and to get the lip balm out of the tube you just twist the little plastic part at the bottom and it comes out far enough to use it. The smell of the lip balm is really sweet and it actually does smell like Coke!
It's a really fresh, candy-like, quite girly smell but it doesn't smell that artificial surprisingly and the smell isn't overpowering like I expected it might be. It doesn't hade any strong chemical undertones and the smell doesn't really linger for very long. Te lip balm has a sweet, waxy taste to it so if i ever lick my lips after I have applied it I am not left with a funny taste in my mouth.
The lip balm has quite a solid consistency and its very waxy and it does sort of drag on my lips rather than glide on but after I've rubbed it over my lips a couple of times it softens up a little and this makes it easier to apply. The lip balm once its on my lips isn't red which was something I wasn't too sure about with the lip balm being red in solid form but on my lips it is completely clear and not at all glossy or shiny. I need quite a lot of it before my lips feel hydrated but it absorbs quickly and my lips feel smooth afterwards.
They don't feel noticeably softer, just smoother and a little more hydrated and I prefer my other lip balm which is a much more intensive moisturiser when it comes to sorting out my lips when they are chapped or sore. I also find that with this lip balm I need to re-apply it countless times durin the day and the smooth feeling it provides isn't long lasting. If it wasn't so yummy smelling and the packaging wasn't so cute I would only give it 2 out of 5 stars but because it does have a few advantages I'm going to give it 3 out of 5 stars.
I'm glad I didn't pay a lot of money for this lip balm and I'm surprised to see how much some shops sell them for! All in all this is more of a novelty item than an effective lip balm in my opinion and I won't be buying this brand of lip balm again.
It was at the end of last year that I received two 'Soda Pop' themed lip balm products as a gift from a friend, one in a "Coca-Cola" variety and the other in a "7 up" variety. Both lip balms are based on the well-known fizzy drinks, with this review outlining my experiences of using the Coca-Cola variety.
I believe that there is a small range of flavoured "Lip Smackers" lip balms available to purchase from the "Bonne Bell" brand, and stockists have included Primark as well as some branches of Claire's Accessories in the past. I have also seen the flavoured lip balms available to purchase online, from websites such as eBay for around £3 plus postage costs, which seems like reasonable value to me.
The "Coca-Cola Lip Smacker" balm is certainly very eye-catching, thanks to its bright red tube and brightly-coloured label that has an attractive 'foil' look to its design. The well-known Coca-Cola logo appears on this label, in its usual design and style so there is really no doubt about the branding of this particular lip balm. I think the product looks really bright and funky overall, without it feeling as though it is cheap or tacky in any way.
The size and style of the Coca-Cola Lip Smacker balm is in keeping with most other lip balm products that I use regularly, comprising of a small 'tube' that is similar in size and design to your average lipstick. You simply need to remove the plastic lid on top of the tube to reveal the 'stick' of lip balm underneath. There is nothing 'gimmicky' about this aspect of the product, and I have never encountered any issues with using the product's packaging, even though I suffer with limited mobility and weakness in my hands. I find it easy enough to remove and replace the plastic lid when I want to, and without any help.
Located at the bottom of the tube is a small 'wheel' that is incorporated into the base of the plastic tube and this simply needs to be turned to allow the 'stick' lip balm contained within the tube to be exposed. Turning the wheel in the opposite direction will, of course, replace the stick of lip balm within its plastic tube once more. Again, this has proven to be easy to use and without any fuss or difficulty from me.
The Coca-Cola Lip Smacker balm itself is a deep brown colour, in keeping with the Coca-Cola theme and branding. This is, admittedly, not the most attractive (or feminine!) colour of lip balm that I own, but I do think it is perfectly suited to the overall branding and image of the product. I find that even as I raise the Lip Smacker balm up to my face to slick it over my lips, I am able to detect the sweet smell of Coca-Cola and this is extremely pleasant - surprisingly so, given its sweetness that feels very slightly sugary in its aroma.
The balm is very easy to apply and I find its consistency is thin enough to 'spread' over the lip's surface very easily, and with minimal effort as you would hope with a product like this one. I find the consistency is absolutely spot on, with the lip balm being without the horrible, slightly 'greasy' feeling that a lot of lip balm products seem to contain nowadays. I can't confess to finding such products particularly appealing or pleasant to wear, so I was pleased to find that the Lip Smackers product felt surprisingly light, in comparison.
I was further surprised to note that the dark brown colour of the lip balm does not transfer to my lips, as this had been something that had concerned me prior to trying the balm out! I had been slightly concerned about having dark brown lips after application but thankfully this has not been the case at all. Instead, my lips are slightly shiny and with a delicate sheen to them that looks surprisingly natural, given the concept of this particular balm. There is really nothing about the finished end result that would indicate what colour of lip balm had been applied, in my opinion.
I do find that the Coca-Cola Lip Smackers balm works quite well at moisturising my lips. I find that my lips will dry out easily as a result of harsh weather and warm central heating they are exposed to, and these issues are of course more of a problem during the cold winter months. As a result, I will try and apply a lip balm product to my dry, chapped lips at least once a day during the winter months and my product of choice recently has been the Lip Smackers balm. I do find that the balm works quite well at keeping my lips soft and smooth, without leaving behind any rough patches or unsightly dry skin on the lips' surface. I didn't expect the product to perform as well as it has in this regard, assuming that it was more of a novelty item than a genuine cosmetic as such, but it seems I was wrong to make this assumption if my softened, moisturised lips are anything to go by.
The main novelty of the Lip Smackers Coca-Cola balm is of course its Coca-Cola flavouring. I'm not sure whether to refer to this as a fragrance or a flavour, as they seem to become the same thing after the balm has first been applied. The scent is predominantly that of Coca-Cola which is very pleasant when the balm is first applied to the lips, and I do find myself licking my lips from time to time subconsciously, as the flavour feels so pleasant. The taste of the lip balm is not as pleasant, unfortunately, and I find this to be more of a 'generic' lip balm flavour with a faint 'hint' of the Coca-Cola taste sitting in the backdrop, teasing me slightly. These are observations rather than being criticisms however, and I do find I am able to detect a faint 'whiff' of the Coca-Cola scent whilst the lip balm is being worn. This is pleasant enough and I haven't noticed it becoming sickly or feeling 'heady' during use, which is an indication to me that the product is actually that of a reasonable quality rather than being something quite cheap.
As with most lip balm products that I use on a regular basis, I find that the Coca-Cola Lip Smackers balm will 'lift' from the lips' surface very easily, and especially if drinking or eating whilst it is being worn. I find there is no need to remove it at the end of the day along with my make-up as it is always long gone by then. This is something that I find is usually the case with most lip balm products in my experience, and so I find it necessary to reapply these products throughout the course of the day if my lips are particularly dehydrated or chapped.
The Lip Smackers balms contain no SPF protection which would have been an added bonus as far as I am concerned, but this omission would not put me off from repurchasing the Coca-Cola lip balm in the future.
In summary, I would recommend giving the Coca-Cola Lip Smackers Lip Balm a try out. I initially thought the product was purely a novelty item but it has surpassed my expectations, providing smooth, moisturised lips each and every time it has been used. I find the scent of the balm is surprisingly agreeable and I would definitely purchase the product for myself again in the future. For the reasons outlined in this review, I feel the Coca-Cola balm is deserving of full marks in the Dooyoo product rating score.
For Christmas my mum gave me and my boyfriend quite a few cocacola themed gifts...i have no idea why but we now have salt and pepper shakers, drink mats and lip balms all coca cola themed. No idea where they got this- is there some cola shop I dont know about?! Never the less I was intrigued by these lip balms (having never heard of them before) and thought I'd give them a review.
These lip balms are of the lipsmacker brand which I haven't actually heard of before, apparantly they have quite a large collection.
The balms i recieved were in a coca cola tin, this tin would probably be handy for storing any lip balms/lip glosses or even small bits of jewellry (Im quite the tin/box hoarder you see). The balms in my tin were:
* Coca cola (original)
* Coca cola cherry
* Coca cola vanilla
The tubes are small so easy to pop in your handbag. I wasnt extremly impressed by the packaging though, the labels on them look quite shiny, tacky and cheap.
Smell wise I'd have to say
Coca cola: Smells like flat coke
Coca cola cherry: I dont actually drink this but according to my boyfriend the smell is spot on.
Coca cola vanilla: I cant remember this drink very well, the last time I had it must be verging on 10 years ago as they dont sell it in the UK anymore from what I've seen- apart from the American food shops. The smell of this reminds me of cheap coke bottle sweets.
When licking my lips with this on I dont think the taste of any of them is particuarly strong. They all taste the same- a kind of light sugary taste.
I think this is good. You dont want a delicious balm that leaves you wanting to constantly lick the taste off and then having to apply more. You also dont want a disgusting tasting balm that leaves you in fear should your tongue (or someone elses lips) cross path with your lips.
I personally like lipbalms you forget about putting on- the light and discreet kind. This feels a little greasy on my lips. It makes me want to lick them! I also found it left my lips feeling slightly tingly- this may be because they're a little chapped at the moment.
Does it do the job?
In a word. Yes. My lips do feel moister and softer within minutes of applying. Its just whether I can withstan the determination not to lick them laying on how effective these little tubes shall be!
The 3 piece set I got will set you back £7.25 or you can buy a tube singulary for £2.55 if you go via the official website- http://www.lipsmackers.co.uk/
They're a nice novelty item but I'll stick to their drinks rather than their balms I think. I may continue to use these as theyre handy to pop in my bag but I wont be buying any when they run out.
I love to have a lip balm which has a bit of a flavour to it or a nice smell, rather than your typical Vaseline which I really don't like. Bonnebell Lip Smackers are fun because they come in a wide variety of scents and they just have an overall exciting image about them. It was when I was in Primark at the weekend that I came along these Coca Cola Lip Smackers at the till point. I have used lip smackers before but never have I had a Coca Cola flavoured one.
The packaging of these is that they just come in a standard cylinder like stick that you twist the bottom to push up more of the smacker. It has a red Coca Cola logo covered red metallic label around the body and it has the words Lip Smacker up each side as well as it saying it includes 4.0g of lip balm. The stick has a red lid and it is by Bonne Bell and is a brown coloured stick which looks like most lip balms but is is small enough to hold and has just enough.
COLA LIP SMACKER
The smell of this Lip Smacker is what does it for me, as soon as you take off the lid, it has a fantastic smell of cola which really does smell so true to the drink. When I opened this from the shop it was a bit annoying to open as a sticker that was too stick to peel off ripped most of the body wrapper off and it made the whole body really sticky, I wish I'd never attempted to peel it off. However, this doesn't affect anything to do with the Lip Smacker itself.
To get some of the stick up you just need to wind the bottom of the stick anti-clockwise and it pushes up some of the balm. You don't need to push up much barely under 1mm as you will have enough to go around your lips. The Lip Smacker is so moist that it just glides around my lips when I apply it, so it is very easy and it has a really nice feel to it being so smooth and you can feel it is doing wonders for your lips upon application, as well as smelling the lovely Coca Cola scent.
I find when applying this Lip Smacker that it does last a good while but of course after an hour or so, your lips absorb the balm so you may need to reapply it if you want to keep it moist. The balm also disappears if you eat and drink with it on as well but it is easy to carry it around in your pocket or your handbag for reapplication. The Coca Cola scent is just perfect and I almost feel like can taste Cola it is that spot on with the smell.
This Lip Smacker is a great thing to have in your handbag, especially with it being cold and suffering from sore lips. It keeps my lips a lot smoother definitely, and stops cracks hurting, keeping them moist and it is an essential to keep lips soft. I love my Cola Lip Smacker and they really are perfect either for yourself or to give to someone as a gift as if you love Coca Cola, then you know that you will love this. I have had mine a couple of months and it lasts really well.
To buy these is best at Primark as they always have them in at the tills. A normal sized Lip Smacker should cost you about £1 or near enough this price at Primark but sellers on eBay sell them too.

Now anyone who has read my reviews in the past will know I am ALWAYS buying lip balms - and then subsequently losing them a few weeks later. Whenever there is a sudden change in the weather my lips just go to pot and become cracked and dry VERY quickly so I always like to have a lip balm on hand in the colder months. I already have about 100000 lip balms knocking around my house but in my opinion I can never have to many (as I lose them so often!!) but I wasnt even looking for a new balm when I found this brand. I was buying some PJ's in Primark a few weeks back when these gorgeous Bonne Bell balms caught my eye - now the only thing I like more than new make-up is fizzy drinks and I couldnt pass up the oppurtinity to buy one of these - I settled on the Vanilla Coke flavour as I adorded that drink when it was sold in the shops so I couldnt wait to try it out - after using this one for a good few weeks now I can without a doubt say I will be buying more!! For fizzy drink lovers everywhere!
Price: I believe this was about £1 - Im not certain on that though as I bought this on impulse at the till!
Stockists: Ive only seen this sold in Primark - but they seem quite popular so they must be available elsewhere.
Flavours: Ive seen - Coca Cola, Vanilla Coke, Cherry Coke, Orange Fanta, Sprite, Dr Pepper - and I think there is even more than that! As I mentioned I own the Vanilla Coke flavour so thats the one I will be concentrating on in this review, although Im definitely going back for more VERY soon!
Now packaging is never really something that amazes me when it comes to products like this but I actually love the design for this one! As I own the Vanilla Coke flavour the packaging is the bright red and cream colours that I would associate with an actual can of Coca Cola - its instantly recognisable - Ive been using this and had people say 'WOW! Coca lipbalm!' simply because the packaging is so spot on. Vey retro and it caught my eye in the shop so it will definitely do the same for other people! On the packaging is a small amount of information about the product - shelf life (24M if your interested) and where the balm is made - now there are no ingredients listed on the tube as its so small so I would say if you have any allergies to ingredients sometimes contained in lipbalms to check of the manufacturers websiteto save any nasty reactions! At the bottom of the tube is a small twist nozzle to push the balm up when your using it and then back down when your finished - this is a brilliant thing for me as it makes applying it on the go so much quicker and easier I think (rather than using balm from a tub anyway!) and there is also a lid on top to make sure the balm stays fresh and the scent is locked in ready for the next time you use it. The packaging is effective and looks pretty great - I want to collect more from the range on packaging alone!!
The balm itself is very simple in appearance as its basically a yellowy stick of wax - thats better for me though as I often apply this quite quickly and without using a mirror so the fact that it doesnt have any colour at all for me is a good thing - I can apply it without using a mirror and not end up looking like a clown with it all around my mouth LOL! Now as I mentioned before when Vanilla Coke the drink was around I LOVED it so you might say I had very high expectations for this balm to taste and smell just like the drink it was named after - I can safely say I have not been disappointed at all. The smell and even taste of this balm is absolutely gorgeous and in my opinion is exactly like V.C. It is a very sweet and sugary taste and smell which for me is exactly what I expected and just the kind of thing I love anyway - but even for people who arent a fan of sugary sweet scents I think this one will be good for you also. Its not so sweet that is becomes sickly in the slightest and the scent is pleasantly sugary without being too OTT or annoying your nose whenever you apply it. If you liked the drink VC I think you will adore this as much as I do - just going on scent alone because it does not disappoint! And best of all the smell lasts on my lips for ages ... if I can resist the urge to lick it off my lips as soon as I apply it that is.
But all the lovely fragrance in the world couldnt save this from being a disaster if it didnt work well as a standard lipbalm as well - if it doesnt moisturise and condition my lips Im not interested regardless of how nice the scent is - luckily I have found this to work very well for me as well as being pleasing to my nose. My lips were very cracked when I first started using this as the weather had just turned very cold. And within just a few days my lips were looking and feeling so much better - in fact this feels nourishing as soon as I apply it - which is quite a lot these days. But since they say prevention is better than cure Ive continued using this over the last few weeks and Im happy to report I havent had any problems with my lips drying out or becoming cracked since Ive been using it regularly so its an all round winner for me. I think there is a scent from the range for literally everyone and I cannot recommend this one in particular highly enough and Ill certianly be buying more in the future. For fizzy pop lovers - and I bet they would make a great stocking filler for Xmas. Buy one, you wont be disappointed!
Thanks For Reading.

Don't you just hate it when you go into a shop, manage to really control yourself and budget and then you get to the tills and they have little things on display that you just cant resist? Whoever came up with this idea is an absolute genius! It gets me every time!
** Lipsmackers **
Lipsmackers lip balms are designed to moisture and hydrate your lips. The range always comes in bright coloured tubes and a large range of flavours.
Although I have seen the basic range many times in Boots and Superdrug, I have never seen the Cherry Cola one before until I was paying in Primark the other day. These were displayed in a tub at the checkouts and being sold for £1.50 each, along with Sprite and Coca Cola Vanilla versions.
** Packaging **
This lip balm comes in a 6cm tube, similar to a lip stick tube. It has a red, pull off lid and, at the bottom, a red base which is twisted to push the balm out of the top.
The rest of the tube is covered in a shiny purple sticker, this has the Coca Cola Cherry logo on it, in white, and the Lipsmacker logo in red.
** The Balm **
The balm is a deep red in colour and is extremely soft from the first application. When applied, it feels quite wet on your lips and only needs a small amount to leave your lips feeling hydrated.
Once applied, you are instantly hit with the scent of Cherry Cola drink and you can taste an exact replica of the drink, which is extremely sweet and has a very distinct taste.
I have been using this for the past 3 weeks and found that I have to reapply after 3-4 hours because my lips are beginning to feel dry. The taste and scent of the balm usually lasts between 1-2 hours.
** Smashing **
I only picked this up because I wanted to see if it actually tasted like Cherry Coke, so anything else that came with it was going to be a bonus.
Lipsmacker have got the Cherry Coke taste to this absolutely spot on, so my initial queries for this were answered. But after using it, I found that my lips felt so great that I carried on using it and have fallen in love in a matter of days. For great tasting and moisturised lips, I would have expected to pay stupid amounts from a more mature make up range, but I now know that I can get all of this for £1.50!
The only downside to this lip balm is the packaging. Although it comes in a nice, small tube that will fit easily into any handbag, the sticker with the logos looks really cheap and tacky. This really disappointed me as it is such a great product but I think I will be able to see past it now that I love the balm so
Lip balm is a daily essential for me, and I always have several on the go, one for handbag, one for home, and one for work. My lips are constantly suffering from dryness and can get chapped and sore when the weather is too cold or too hot - I can't win! This Coca Cola Lip Smackers lip balm was a bit of a novelty item and was given to me as a little treat on my last birthday. You can buy the Coca Cola Lip Smackers balm from several high street stores including Primark, Claire's Accessories and even W H Smiths, and you should expect to pay between £1.50 - £2.00.
The lip balm comes in a small red plastic tube and has a pull-off cap lid. You apply the lip balm by turning a section at the bottom of the tube to move the product out of the top. The tube is decorated in the bright red classic Coca Cola colour and has a large logo so you can clearly identify the branding. The twist tube is my favoured method of packaging for lip balms, as this means I can apply neatly straight from the tube onto my lips, without having to get it on my fingers and have a sticky residue left behind, or end up with it caught underneath my fingernails. It's easy to pop the little tube into a purse or handbag and I often take mine on nights out in my little clutch bag for quick top-ups in between drinks.
This lip balm is based on the iconic Coca Cola soft drink, and everything about the lip balm fits into this image. The scent is remarkably similar to the actual drink itself, and they have somehow managed to make it smell "fizzy" which is hard to describe, but a great fun feature! The balm itself has a brown colour like the drink, and this leaves a nice subtle tint of colour on the lips. I think the shade is very flattering and it gives a lovely finish that would suit everyone as it still appears quite natural.
The Lip Smackers lip balm is very soft and a little oily, but this helps in that it spreads easily onto the lips without having to rub very hard at all, just a gentle sweep provides good coverage which is helpful when dealing with already damaged skin. I find that this will sit on the surface of my skin and coats my lips with a protective layer, as well as providing moisture that keeps my lips feeling soft. This doesn't feel sticky at all, and it gives a gorgeous shiny finish which is more like what I would expect from a lip gloss. I apply first thing in the morning, but it does tend to wear off through the day when I am drinking and eating etc, so I make sure I have lip balm with me to top it up as and when I need when I'm out and about. It stays put for ages if I'm not scoffing snacks which means that my skin is left protected and cared for.
This Coca Cola Lip Smackers lip balm is a really unusual product and I am really glad to have received it as a gift. It is definitely the sort of thing I would go out and buy again for myself once it's run out. The lip balm is a unique item that is fun and would be perfect for anyone that loves to drink Coca Cola. Not only is it a great branded product that fits in with the Coke theme, it also works really well as a lip care product. This has helped to keep my lips soft and split-free, as well as giving a nice looking tint and gloss to finish it off. I would highly recommend this fun bargain beauty product.
I was in Primark the other day to purchase some new panties, once at the checkout i noticed a bowl full of canned drinks style lip balms. I was in there 3/4 weeks previous so id already pointed it out to my partners mum who said she brought one for her young son. So I picked one up for the novelty factor and the fact they put the random bits out at the tills for people like me, who spend way more than they first anticipated.
I paid £1.50 for this and I literally haven't put it down. It smells like cola bottle sweets which i personally love the smell of. I had dry lips when I first brought this and now they are lovely and smooth especially as I havent exfoliated my lips for a while.(not just a novelty it also works!) There's other flavours too including: Sprite, Coca Cola vanilla,cherry, Orignal, Fanta orange, pineapple and Strawberry and Dr Pepper.
I love lip balms. I remember seeing Lip Smacker lip balms in Superdrug years ago then they seemed to stop selling them. Then much to my delight I saw them on sale in Claire's Accessories for £1.50, the range includes flavours like Sprite, Dr Pepper and Skittles as well as unusual flavours like Cotton Candy and Pink Lemonade. You can also buy these online, but as they are from America you need to shop around for a good deal!
I chose a Coca Cola lip balm, you can also get a lip gloss. The pack was sealed so I wasn't sure what to expect. The packaging was bright red with the famous Coca Cola label, it was also endorsed by Coca Cola.
The lipbalm comes in a tube and you can turn the bottom to move the lipbalm up as it runs out. The lipbalm is a brown colour exactly the same as Coke, you can also smell the distinct Coke smell when you take off the lid. The directions on the packet advise you to apply liberally as often as needed especially in cold, winter conditions to keep lips soft smooth and moisturised.
The lipbalm spread on my lips really easily, they instantly felt moistened. When I licked my lips I got the sweet taste of Coke, it was so realistic it tasted like the real thing. I have had this tube for about 5 months and it is still going strong, it's so nice I use it all the time, it certainly saves calories as well as preventing chapped lips. It also gives your lips a subtle sheen.
I would recommend these lipbalms to anyone looking for a quirky flavour or scent, there are so many to choose from and this one is my absolute favourite!
A few weeks ago, I was shopping with a friend in Primark, queuing up to buy some lovely cheap clothes, when we both spied these lip smackers mixed up in a big container. On this particular day, we were both goading each other to spend loads of money, which is how we managed to convince each other to buy one! They only cost £1.50 each, however, so they didn't exactly break the bank.
The lip smackers, or lip balms, came in standard lip balm stick form in a number of fizzy-drink themed flavours including Coca Cola, Fanta and Sprite. As I like Cocoa Cola Cherry, I chose this flavour of lip balm for myself.
The tube was red, with a label with the Coca Cola Cherry logo on the side. I'm guessing it is an official product, otherwise I doubt they would be able to use the official logo. The label has the name and address of the Bonne Bell company, but no ingredients.
On removing the lid, a red stick lip balm is visible. What surprised me was that it definitely smelled like cherry coke! I didn't honestly think that they would be able to recreate the smell of the real thing but they've done a really good job. For the record, my friend had the Sprite one and it was a white stick, it also smelled really authentic!
As with most stick lip balms, you twist up the bottom to apply. I found that it went on my lips easily and made them feel moisturised and protected. The red stick also gave my lips a slight sheen. I could also taste the cherry coke which was great, although it meant I had to try really hard not to lick my lips!
The lip balm has worked better than I expected, doing a decent job of keeping my lips moisturised and soft in the cold weather. It's not as good as brands such as Lush and Carmex, but then again it's not as expensive. It does seem to wear down quite quickly, though, and as mentioned before I have no idea what ingredients are actually in this lip balm! This may bother some people who like to know exactly what is in their beauty products.
Overall, though, this Bonne Bell Lip Smacker in Cherry Coke is a pretty good product. It actually resembles the flavour it claims to be, and isn't particularly expensive. For this reason, I recommend it.
This cold weather has really left me feeling rotten - I've had a stinking cold for the last week or so, and on top of that, my lips are all dry and horrible .
I was queueing up in Primark last week when I noticed a pot of various lip balms on the counter, in a variety of flavours - Coca Cola, Fanta, and Sprite. As they were only £1.50 each, I decided to pick one up, and opted for the Coca Cola flavoured one, which came in an attractive package with the Coca Cola loge on the front , as well ad the word Lip Smacker. It had a small red cap at one end that was easy to remove, and a small red wheel at the bottom that you could turn to move the stick of balm up and down
The balm itself is a pinky brown, and waxy in texture . It actually smells almost exactly like Coca Cola, only a little stronger and sweeter . Despite being coloured in the tube, once applied the balm is clear in colour . The taste is very much like Coca Cola, only without the notable fizz, although the flavour itself is much milder. It's certainly lickable though, and I find I tend to reapply quite often as I'm always licking it off.
This does protect my lips from the cold, leaving them much softer and stopping them from drying out, so at only £1.50 I do think these are nice value, and are certainly a cute little item to have in your handbag, or perhaps to buy someone as a stocking filler . I have noticed though that the tube contains no ingredient information, and no company address , which might be an issue if you have allergies and need to know what is in a product before using it .
5 stars, a lip smackingly good balm in cute packaging, at a reasonable price.
I first discovered Lip smackers lip balms in Claires accessories I purchased the Cherry Coca cola one for £2 which I thought was a bargain at the time and I couldn't wait to try it. After trying it and loving it I returned to Claire's to find that the 'Coca Cola party pack' was on offer 8 lipbalms for £6 and I snapped it up.
Coca Cola Party Pack features 8 lipbalms:
Coca Cola Vanilla,
Coca Cola Classic,
Coca Cola Cherry,
The packaging for each is bright and eye catching and looks like a mini version of the soft drink flavour it is suppost to be.
I find these lip balms to be really addictive each one tastes like the soft drink described on the packaging. My favourite one being cherry coca cola. The lip balms are easy to apply and you can use them as often as you like. I actually find these are really good when I am trying to loose weight and have a sweet craving. I apply this to my lips and because its sweet it seems to ease my cravings off (this could be in my mind but it works for me so I am not complaining) this of course is not what it is designed for, and no where does it say it helps loose weight so don't think it does. But its better to apply this to my lips than to stuff my face on some jelly babies. As well as helping me not to snack they also make my lips smooth and soft like a lip balm is suppost to.
The lip balms can be purchased individually in Claire's for around £2 depending on which one you want, and there are lots of flavours to choose from. So if you like sweet things keep your eyes open.
My daughter has successfully managed to spend every penny she was given for Christmas, so has started to culminate money via work around the house.
After going to school one day, she returned saying how one of her friends had brought the best thing ever in to school with her, this being flavoured lip balms.
Not that exciting you may think, but my daughter and her click love lip balms anyway, so to be able to buy them in these particular flavours has made them an instant craze with them.
The lip balms I will now review are - "Coca Cola - Lip smackers"
I have to be honest before my daughter told me about these I didn't know you could get them in such flavours, I might even treat myself too!
The only place we knew of that sold these was Claire's accessories, but after researching the internet (unfortunately after my daughter brought them!), we found them for considerably cheaper on Amazon, though not exactly the same flavours as Kaitlin has brought.
The choice available are single lip balms for £2.50, a pack of 4 for £7.00 and a pack of 6 for £9.00, with no repeating of flavours within the pack, meaning the full selection of different flavours.
Within the pack my daughter brought there is a Coca Cola, Coca cola with vanilla, Fanta and Sprite flavoured lip balm, all with the appropriate label on the tube linking them to the actually drinks.
These are no different in design to any bog standard lip balm, they have the generic pull of cap/lid, and have a screw bottom design, the detail of the scent and taste is the complete drawing point to these beauties!
Each lip balm smells completely as the drink itself does, but much stronger scented. To add to the effect each balm is also coloured to match the scent, though once put on your lips the balm is clear, I wouldn't fancy walking around all day with bright orange lips, no matter how nice it tastes!
The taste again is nice, though not as nice as the scent portrays them, there is a slight sweetness to them and reasonably faint taste of the above drinks.
The practicality of them is as you would expect, they are a perfectly good lip balm that do just as they should, help protect against dry and sore lips, with the added "cool" factor!
Do I recommend them, yes! They are fun, practical and according to my daughters click, the new big thing!
