What they say:
Honey Trap: For sweet, vanilla-honey kisses. If you mixed up honey and silk and turned it into a sound, you'd probably get the voice of Eartha Kitt singing Old Fashioned Millionaire. Eartha was the embodiment of sweet, soft, sexy and wicked. We like to think that our Honey Trap has the same qualities. Smooth on some wicked white chocolate, sweet honey, softening butters and delicious vanilla for temptingly tasty lips.
Chocolate Whipstick: A gorgeous chocolate lip balm whipped up to a perfectly smooth consistency. Pucker up and smooth on this oat infused, honey and Shea butter lip balm to moisturize and soften your lips. Let's not forget the chocolate and vanilla absolute that make your lips irresistibly tasty. This is a balm too delicious to keep to yourself – be sure to give everyone you love a nice kiss so they can taste it too, just remember to lock it up unless you want it stolen!

The good stuff:
- Smooth texture
- Moisturizing & soothing
- Decent lasting power
- Natural ingredients
- The smell. I don't like either smell.
- Packaging isn't the greatest
With that being said, the texture of these balms are pretty nice and smooth, easy to slather on. The Whipstick is more on the thick/creamy side while the Honey Trap is more thin/slick. I prefer the texture of the Honey Trap because Whipstick makes me feel a little like I'm rubbing Crisco on my lips. Still, both are decently moisturizing and soothing. I only use them at night though, because it kind of feels like the product just sits on your lips instead of fully absorbing in. Both harden when not in use, so you have to warm it up with your finger when you want to use it again. They last a decent amount of time, at least a few hours. Less with eating/drinking.
Would I repurchase/recommend?
No, I personally would not repurchase these products, mostly because of the smell and I have a ton of other lip balms that I prefer and I feel work just as well (and better) for the price. If you're into natural products though, I guess these are worth a shot. Definitely a no-go for people who don't like strong scents!
