I’ve heard bits and pieces about these balms however they haven’t popped up as stand out products in favourites videos etc so I assumed they weren’t worth a second look however when it was in the Sephora set I was excited to try it for review purposes alone. Well.. my main bug bear isn’t really about the product itself and not something I can fairly judge it on but of all of the minis that were in this kit this was the TINIEST. What’s insane is the packaging is great, it’s not cheap feeling/looking at all and you would think that if they were to cut corners to pinch pennies it would be with that. Maybe put it in another tube for the sample sizes but no.. put it in a substantial looking tube and give them next to no product, that’s definitely a better idea. If you check the list of included products on the site it is by far the smallest at 0.01oz and I can’t help but be a little pissed at Benefit for creating such a stingy sample. This came in a set I paid for but even if it was included as a free gift I’d be kind of annoyed.. maybe that’s unreasonable, let me know your thoughts!
Rant aside the product itself is actually really nice. Posie Balm isn’t necessarily the one I’d have chosen, I may have gone for the slightly bolder Bene Balm but regardless I will throw it in my handbag for those occasions when I’d prefer a little more colour than my regular balm. It feels really nice on and gives a sheer yet even hint of colour in (as I previously mentioned) very nice packaging. I would consider purchasing a full size and I’m surprised I haven’t heard more about these.. I guess they’re a bit out of season now but come Summer I may have to pick one up.. cause this will last me about until the end of this sentence..
