Birchbox Breakdown

This lip balm from TokyoMilk Dark comes in decidedly grown up flavors (like Salted Caramel, Cherry Bourbon, and Absinthe) and is as good for our lips as it is delectable.

How to Use

Using your fingertips, smooth a small amount of balm onto lips. (As tempting as it is, don’t simply snack on them.)

Petrolatum, microcrystal-line wax, flavor, canola oil and aloe barbadensis (Aloe Vera) leaf extract, tocopherol (vitamin E), tocopheryl (vitamin E) acetate, stevia rebaudiana (steva) leaf extract, organic camellia sinensis (Green Tea) leaf extract, carthamus tinctorius (safflower) seed oil and jasminum officinale (Jasimine) flower extract, monarda didyma (bee balm) leaf extract.

Great Balms; Might Not Be For Everyone

I adore these and am delighted to see them on Birchbox; I'd like to see them offer all of the available flavors here. I think they're fantastic - but they're not for everyone.

The first ingredient IS petroleum, which might turn some people off. This balm is kind of like a thicker Chapstick, with better, more grown-up flavors. But this means you only have to apply a little to get soft, moisturized lips. I slather it on at night and don't have to worry about waking up with chapped lips. These tins are large so even if you use it liberally, they'll last a long time.

In addition, the flavors/scents are fairly strong - especially La Vie En Rose. I love it, but if you're sensitive to strong smells, you probably want to buy something else.

If I had one complaint about the product, it's that the packaging is kind of hit or miss. One tin I own is a little difficult to open, and one was clearly botched during production and doesn't have a nice smooth edge on the top like it should. It's not common enough or annoying enough to make me stop ordering them, but it's something I hope they'll improve in the future.

almost as good as the real thing...
Purchased

I bought this in "Clove Cigarette" flavor. the smell especially takes me back to my college years in the 80s when we listened to the Smiths and wore all black and smoked Clove Cigarettes and dressed up for midnight screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

I don't smoke any cigarettes anymore, of course (I still wear mostly black and have been caught listening to the Smiths on occasion. What can I say, I'm old and nostalgic!) but this lip balm was completely irresistible to me. I actually somehow accidentally managed to order two but it's all right because right now, this is the number one balm I'm using on my lips. Besides tasting and smelling better than all other lip balms I own (and they are myriad, I live in the harsh midwest) this balm just plain FEELS the best. It makes my lips feel soft, soothed, moisturized, plumped and protected for hours after I apply.

Winter is coming and I have a feeling that I'll be glad that I have a back-up tin of this luxurious balm. Well worth the purchase price and then some. I think the grown up flavors would make this an excellent gift or stocking stuffer, too!

So happy to see this item now available from birchbox ♡

I received the Salted Caramel as a gift & I absolutely love it. I put it on at night before bed & wake up to soft lips. The smell is relaxing to me (hello, sweet tooth) & the formula isn't sticky. I love the short list of ingredients & the fact that it is USA made. I plan to purchase as soon as my first tin finally runs out :D

Salted Caramel is the BOMB!
Purchased

I just tried this luxury lip balm and let me tell you it is now my favorite! I will be ordering the other tastes soon, but this one is delicious. I don't know how you keep from not just licking your lips to death. The only downside of this product is the application. I do not like using my hands to apply it, and perhaps in future they could change that. But, it won't keep me from re-ordering a different kind to try in future.

Strong smell, great balm
Purchased

I like this balm because it's super moisturizing and feels great on my lips for hours, without getting sticky. The scents are VERY strong, but I like that. It could be off-putting though to someone who's very sensitive to smells. The absinthe scent smells just like a shot of absinthe, it's very sweet and almost menthol-y; sometimes I love it but other times I just can't take the strong scent. I also have the salted caramel flavor and I LOVE that one. It's VERY sweet, but smells delicious, and I want to just eat it. It helps curb cravings for salted caramel lattes, for sure!
