Review: Seascape Island Apothecary Peppermint Oil Lip Balm


Seascape Island Apothecary is a brand I'd heard of but not tried until now. Seascape create skincare, bath and body products using natural ingredients sourced from the island of Jersey. All the packaging and product pots and bottles are recycable.

The Seacape Island Apothecary Peppermint Oil Lip Balm comes in a 10ml pot, which costs £10.00. The glass pot gives it an expensive touch and I love the blue floral design on the lid. This lip balm contains a number of natural ingredients including peppermint essential oil, honey, beeswax, shea butter, jojoba seed oil and sunflower seed oil, all designed to moisturise and protect dry, chapped lips. It contains no parabens, silicones, SLS, petroleum, artificial colours or artificial fragrances.

The formula of this is lovely. It is completely solid in the pot but melts easily on contact with your skin, although of course this isn't the most hygenic method of application. The formula is rich, so you don't need to apply a lot, but it is not greasy despite the fact it is oil based. The Peppermint Oil Lip Balm doesn't tingle when applied as some minty lip balms do. The scent is of course minty, but it is not overpowering and actually a lot more subtle than I expected. It is very hydrating and is perfect for drier lips that need a real shot of moisture.

The Seascape Island Apothecary Peppermint Oil Lip Balm can be purchased from Beauty Expert with free delivery here.

  1. This sounds lovely, I always suffer from dry lips so usually use products from LUSH or Blistex relief cream! <3
