‘What time is it? Summer time!’
How have you guys been? It has been such a long time since I have posted something on my blog! I apologize therefore, but I have some good news. The reason why I did not have the time to write something on my blog was due to school, but I can finally say that I graduated college and now have loads of time to blog again. I am so excited because I missed blogging, like a lot, but since I have the time now and it is almost summer, I wanted to show you guys some really cool new tinted lip balms from this brand named Greenland to get those lips summer ready!

So Greenland is a Dutch brand that sells loads of body care products, including body scrubs, lip balms, hand cream and many more made of natural ingredients! Greenland just recently came out with 3 new tinted lip balms, namely: a nude papaya lip balm, a pink passion fruit lip balm and a red strawberry lip balm. Today I will be showing and reviewing one of the new tinted lip balms from Greenland, which is the passion fruit one. The reason why I chose the passion fruit one is because it is pink and is a really cool summer color to have on your lips.
The ingredients op the lip balm are:
Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Squalane, Octyldodecanol, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Candelilla Cera (Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax), Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Butter, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Ethylhexyl Hydroxystearate, Mica, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Isodecyl Neopentanoate, Aroma (Flavor), Tocopheryl Acetate, Bisabolol, Isopropyl MY00ristate, BHT, Limonene, Linalool, Citronellol, Citral, CI 19140, CI 15850.
Free from: parabens, colorants, gluten, lactose, sls/sles. silicons, mineral oils, phthalates, propylene glycol, formaldehyde, alcohol, micro plastics.
Suitable for vegetarians.
The thing I love about the lip balm is the packaging. It is very appealing and does not look cheap, you can almost say that it is a very Tumblr kind of lip balm. The lip balm is a really cute pink and glittery lip balm and it smells really like passion fruit. It makes me think of laying on the beach, drinking cold ice tea and relaxing to the fullest for some reason. I always have that when I smell a certain scent so I am sorry if any of you find that weird, but that is just my way of explaining things or products. When I swatch it on my wrist, you can see that the lip balm is sheer and is very glittery. I have no problem with sheer lip balms, but I know some people do because they like brighter colors more in summer time. I honestly do not care at all because I feel like lip balms are there to moisturize your lips when they are cracked and dry. For those of you who do not mind the sheerness of the lip balm, I highly recommend it to you. For those who do mind, I do not recommend the tinted lip balms from Greenland (at least the passion fruit one). I would instead go for a bright creamy lipstick that has a moisturizing effect.
The new tinted lip balms are €7,- each and can be found in the shop at the website of Greenland, along with the other body care products that they sell. They ship internationally which is always a plus in my opinion.
