After recently using and really liking the Nip + Fab pistachio body butter (review here), I decided to buy and try out their lip butters when I saw them in Sainsbury's recently. I had high hopes for them and at the time they were 1/3 off making them £3.33 - bargain!
As you can see the lip butters come in little pots and are in cherry tarte, coconut latte and mango smoothie. As soon as I had paid for them, I quickly opened them up because I was so eager to smell them and at the time they seemed perfectly fine. I then bought them home and left them on my bedroom floor, in the box and bag until I was ready to put them away. However, when I did go to put them away and opened the cherry tarte one to use it, I was met with a really runny and gloopy mess and after checking the other two, found they had all done the same thing.
I didn't keep them these by any form of heat and since I opened them when I bought them knew they were okay and that this isn't how they are supposed to be. I have no idea what happened to them but it's a huge disappointment!
I've since put them in the fridge to see if it hardens them up and while they're not as runny, they still aren't solid and pretty much unusable. It makes a mess when you try to get some out and the products feels like putting greasy water on your lips and slides right off. They smell really nice (although the 'mango' one reminds me more of a melon scent than it does mango) but other than that I can't comment on how well they work and right now they are not what I would consider to be 'lip butters'.
Have you tried these lip butters? Has anyone else had the same thing happen?
