However, for tonight, I'm taking advantage of the fast internet connection here in the city. The spirit of Christmas is slowly creeping to me as I look at the kids dancing to the tune of "Gangnam Style". Christmas really is a time for fun and bonding for the whole family. Even though I was not really geared for Christmas, I am glad that I was given a simple token to feel the spirit of the season by.
I'm talking about Chapstick in Candy Cane.

This balm is actually part of the Holiday Chapstick Collection. What I love about this is that it indeed tastes and smells like candy canes. It's been years since I've last had a candy cane. Can you already tell how big of deal Christmas is for us? LOL! Applying this balm makes me nostalgic and really brings Christmas to me. Another plus factor is that it instantly freshens the breath. Of course you're not supposed to bite this off but the scent of the balm emanates from your lips once applied.
I have spearmint and candy cane varaints of Chapstick. They both work great. Candy Cane has a much sweeter effect that spearmint. However the sweetness still does not take away the freshening quality of this balm. The minty feel stays on the lips for approximately 20 minutes.
The finish of this balm is also very smooth. My lips do not feel waxy either even hours after this has been applied. I've been slathering this on 30 minutes after initial application of my Revlon Just Bitten lip stain.
Overall, I'm really loving this balm. It has definitely brought Christmas to me! I would actually love to collect all the lip balms from this Holiday Collection. Santa, I can't say I've been good this year but if you could please give me Chocolate Truffle, Apple Cider and Peppermint Chapsticks, I'd really appreciate it. :-)
Holy Grail Verdict:
Availability: 4/5 I'm not quite sure how much longer this will be available as I believe this is part of Chapstick's limited edition line.
Price: 5/5 105 Php - how could you go wrong?
