Jack Black Lip Balm Trio

Quick Review: Jack Black Lip Balm Trio

Jack Black It’s the Balm Lip Balm Trio ($19.50 for 0.75 oz.) includes three full-sized flavors of Jack Black’s Intense Therapy Lip Balm. Two of the three flavors are limited edition (at present) — when I inquired as to whether they would be made permanent, the brand indicated that it would see what customers’ response was. It’s a terrific stocking stuffer and an overall good deal, as individually sold versions are $7 a pop ($21 for 3).

I’m a huge fan of this lip balm.  I have one in every room, my purse, my car… you name it.  I think there are three on my nightstand, actually!  Super moisturizing, comfortable to wear, and lasts for hours.

  • Natural Mint is minty-fresh with a slight tingle (but nothing burning or uncomfortable in the least). After much trialing, I think Natural Mint is my personal favorite.
  • Black Tea & Blackberry is a sweetened berry-scented balm with a slight sweetness to taste.
  • Grapefruit & Ginger smells like grapefruit; not overly sweet, strong citrus notes, and it even tastes a bit like grapefruit.

Welcome to Swatch-all-idays! To start 2011 off on the right foot (or post, as it may be!), Temptalia is going through a backlog of products we have photographed, swatched, and often tested but in a slightly different manner. Quick reviews may be partially incomplete, such as a blush may only be swatched on the arm rather than shown on the face. It is our hope that what we are able to provide is still helpful!
