I ordered from Super Smoocher and my package arrived a couple of days later. The balm was wrapped in a twist of hot pink tissue paper and as I opened it, tiny red sequin hearts fluttered out onto the table - how cute!? I love when companies pay attention to detail, presentation is everything, right? Also included in the package was a discount code and a couple of Vegan Society leaflets.

Figs and Rouge lip balm tins are undeniably gorgeous! I'm a sucker for vintage looking packaging and art nouveau, so combine them and you've got me hook, line and sinker. The bottom of the tin contains all of the important stuff - weight, ingredients and directions for use. I imagine the tin would take quite a battering in the bottom of a handbag, but the lid is tight enough not to be falling off.
The balm itself smells stunning, a soft, slightly herbal rose scent which reminds me a little of Turkish Delight. It isn't the least bit overpowering and I can't smell it at all once applied. Also, it is completely taste free. Solid until warmed by your finger tips, Figs and Rouge balm glides on effortlessly without tugging at your lips. On me, it lasts a few hours before wearing off and leaves my lips feeling well moisturised and protected.
I'd certainly recommend for anyone looking for a more natural, moisturising lip balm, with a mature look and feel to it. Other scents include 'Peppermint and Tea Tree' and 'Sweet Geranium'. RRP £3.45 for 7g of product. Super Smoocher currently have a sale on Figs & Rouge lip balms - well worth checking out!
