LUSH Honey Trap Lip Balm

Posted by Dain, Wednesday, June 08, 2005 5:52 AM (Eastern)

In the world of international espionage, a honey trap is a beautiful woman sent to seduce a spy and tease his state secrets from him using every means possible. James Bond seems to encounter at least one in almost every film. In the LUSH world, Honey Trap is a gorgeously tasty, white chocolate balm that will leave lips in a soft, sensual state capable of seducing anyone they encounter. The balm is also full of honey, nutritious wheatgerm oil, soothing oatmilk infusion, almond oil, beeswax, and shea butter to moisturize and soothe.

MY TAKE: My sister took a sniff. "OH!," she exclaimed, "That is GROSS!" Personally, there's something about it that makes me return my nose to it. It smells extraordinarly like my L'Occitane Miel Incense, unburnt, though sweeter and without any flowery tones. They're both... strangely green. In fact, I don't really smell honey at all, though it's somewhat reminiscent of honey. I smell almond and vanilla, and there's this initial note of... peppermint. It's faint. They say there's orange but I don't really smell it. No, I have to agree with my sister, it doesn't really smell good, and not like honey at all (honey, like chocolate, is a very difficult scent to capture). But I find it very interesting, for some reason. This is more a traditional solid lip balm, rather than the whipped goodness of Whip Stick, and it lies a bit heavier on the lips. It's waxier, too, but not without loads of skin-friendly waxes and oils thrown in (they don't scrimp, those LUSHies). Very nicen lip balm, makes your lips feel very soft, but rather expensive, at $7. That, I can't blame, as they use quality ingredients, but I wouldn't pay that much...
