ChapStick MixStix™ Flavor Blending Lip Balm Product Review


I may be a sucker for lip balm products, but I am even more of one for lemonade products that feature a twist of raspberry. I’ve never known a lip balm to offer such a delightful combination, until now.

I recently had some amazing luck in being offered a chance to try ChapStick’s new MixStix™ lip moisturizers, which come in three, make that six, tantalizing flavors. I couldn’t believe my luck when I learned that Lemon Berry Sorbet is one of those phenomenal flavors! Of course, I dug into that one first.

By themselves, the lemon flavor and the berry flavor are amazing. I could use them all day long, especially the lemon, but really both are incredible. I hope these products stick around for a while because I think I have to make sure I’ve always got one on hand. The light taste of Lemon Berry Sorbet ChapStick MixStix is perfect for summer but will bring you bliss any time of year. I love the way it reminds me of a raspberry lemonade cocktail or a sweet, endless summertime without a care in the world.

The next flavor I tried was Strawberry Banana Smoothie—another flavor combo that is right up my alley. I’ve owned a few strawberry banana lip balm products in my day, but this one is by far my favorite of all those. The gloss goes on so smoothly and tastes wonderful. The strawberry is reminiscent of most strawberry balms—just enough flavor without being overpowering, but the banana is incredible. It really reminds me of the banana flavored Runts candies. SO GOOD!!

Green Apple Caramel is the third flavor available in the Mixstix lineup, and it has a nice flavor reminiscent of the fall season. It reminds me of making caramel apples in college, or visiting an apple orchard with the fresh scent of granny smiths and McIntosh apples in the air. The apple side of the lip balm is divine and I’d enjoy using this side even all by itself. The caramel side reminds me just a bit of coffee, probably since many coffee flavors now incorporate a caramel element. I would say this combo is my third favorite out of the three choices, but I really do like all three.

Each stick has 11 different moisturizers, including Aloe. The lip balms themselves have a nice, hydrating formula that goes on very smoothly, leaving lips soft and kissable. What a brilliant idea to have lip balms that give the option to combine flavors in a single stick! Use these yummy ChapSticks individually for delicious flavors or combine them for a fun twist on a new flavor – Caramel Apple, Strawberry Banana, or Berry Lemonade, YUM!

These lip balms retail for between $2.99 and $3.99. You can find ChapStick MixSticks exclusively at Walgreens. For more information, be sure to check out the ChapStick® Website and ChapStick® Facebook page.
