New Jack Black lip balms and a personal plea to bring Jack Black to Australia

If it weren’t for the fact that I am a blogger (oh the sacrifices that I make for this blog! lol) I would order a lifetime’s worth of Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balms and use nothing else on for the rest of my days.

When I first tried Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm in Natural Mint (reviewed here) I was totally blown away by how great it felt on the lips and how it really managed to heal and deeply hydrate them. It’s my HG by far (replacing my previous HG lip balm, which was the Bobbi Brown Lip Balm SPF)

Since then, I have bought two new flavours from Sephora.com – Black Tea & Blackberry, and Grapefruit & Ginger. And about 5 Natural Mint backup tubes :)

Besides not having the tingly minty buzz of Natural Mint, the texture and performance of the two new Jack Black Balms are pretty much identical to Natural Mint. They all have a longlasting cushiony,  ointment feel. All winners.

Black Tea and Blackberry– the fragrance of this is quite subtle, and reminds me of the scent of loose black tea leaves with no detectable sweetness. I would imagine this flavour appealing to lots of guys (in fact, my tube has been pinched by my friend Ken)

Grapefruit and Ginger–  this smells to me mostly of sweet citrus candy, with hardly any detectable ginger scent. I was hoping for something a bit more grownup, and with a little more complexity but I guess you can’t have everything!

I have ordered a tube of the Jack Black Balm in Lemon & Chamomile as well as Vanilla & Lavender, which I should have in my hot little hands very soon. (and a million more backups of Natural Mint muahaha)

Also, dear department stores and lip balm stockists-  PLEASE BRING JACK BLACK TO AUSTRALIA! K thx.
