Lip Care: Besame Sweetheart Balm

I used to absolutely LOVE lip balms, but the older I get the more I seem to shy away from them.  I guess I just have memories of lip balms being really thick and sticky with overwhelmingly sweet fruity scents and somewhat childish packaging… I had apparently missed the boat on Bésame Sweetheart Balms.  This balm is nothing like the lip balms I have used in the past.  It is really moisturizing and conditioning without being  thick and sticky.  The Tangerine Sweetheart Balm smells like tangerines, but is not overpoweringly fruity, the scent is actually pretty refreshing.  I am absolutely in love with the sheer color of the balm, it’s a very flattering reddish coral shade.  The packaging is also quite beautiful, it’s apparent that a lot of detail went into the packaging of this balm.  It is pretty and feminine with just a touch of glamour.

Everything about Bésame Sweetheart Balm appealed to me, from the scent to the packaging to the feel and color.  I would not be surprised if while wearing this balm my boyfriend is tempted to sneak in some extra besos…

Have you tried this lip balm or any other products from Bésame?
