This was a fun VoxBox to be a part of!
Before these three new Chapstick flavors were released to stores, I got to give them a shot!

These Chapsticks are actually different from your everyday $1 chapstick beside the register at Walmart. These are 100% natural lip butter "with naturally sourced ingredients, including Sunflower Oil, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Olive Oil, Shea Butter, and Beeswax for healthier looking lips." I was sent three flavors, Green Tea Mint, Sweet Papaya, Pink Grapefruit.
By far my favorite of the three flavors was Green Tea Mint. I didn't really get much green tea flavor, but it had a nice minty tingle. The Sweet Papaya was good, nice and fruity. My least favorite was the Pink Grapefruit... But I'm not a huge fan of the fake grapefruit smell/flavor regardless. You know those Grapefruit Bert's Bees makeup remover wipes? The smell makes my stomach turn!
As for the actually quality of the Chapsticks, I'm honestly kind of torn... I have very sensitive lips, and after beginning to use these my lips dried out even further, becoming tight and rough, and then they began to peel. This isn't the first brand of lip products to cause this, but it is the first problem I've had in years. I am a fan of the Chapstick brand in general and own many of the original flavors, and they haven't ever given me a problem before! After my lips go back to normal I plan to give them another shot by themselves, so nothing else can interfere with the experiment! It made me sad that this happened because I genuinely enjoyed the subtle flavors and smooth moisturizing feel they give.
Therefore, I suggest you try them. They have wonderful reviews and I haven't heard any other odd cases which match up with mine, so consider me the exception instead of the rule. I will try them out again, and hopefully report back to you with better news soon!
I think my lips are just in a weird state of chapped and the mix of too many different chapsticks! Therefore, please try these out for yourself because they have a wonderful feel to them!
