Blamtastic Review

I am going to be honest…..I am a bit of a lip balm snob. I don’t usually like how it feels on my lips and I have yet to find one that I really liked until I tried Blamtastic™. I was shocked and impressed when I found out that Blamtastic™ was created by a pair of tween entrepreneurs, Lily and Melanie Sandler at the ages of 10 and 9. Blamtastic™ glides on silky smooth and doesn’t have a waxy or greasy feeling at all. This winter we have had to use the heater in our Florida home because it has been particularly cold and my lips were dry and cracked.Blamtastic™ really helped my lips feel soothed and moisturized with an aloe-based formula. I appreciated that Blamtastic™ does not contain any preservatives or petroleum and is paraben free. My four year old daughter begs to wear “lip gloss” for special occasions which is a big “no no” in our house but when I noticed that her lips were dry too I let her use a bit of Blamtastic™ and she was just thrilled plus her lips were healed by the next morning. The flavors are fantastic and we really like the “Wow Wow Watermelon”, “Lemon-Liscious” and my favorite “Cherry Nilla”. Blamtastic™ also includes SPF 15 to provide extra protection for sensitive lips. Blamtastic™ has lip balm for “sugar and spice” girls and “rough around the edges” for guys.

The young makers of Blamtastic™ must be especially proud of winning the 2010 Seal of Excellence Award at Creative Child Magazine and being recommended by Seventeen Magazine, TIME Magazine and nickelodeon Parent Connect.

This Valentine’s Day, Blamtastic™ would make a fantastic gift idea for the tween or teen loves in your life (may I also suggest it for yourself too). Not only are the flavors “yummy” but the wrappers are colorful and appealing to the younger crowd. Blam Sleeves are also a neat idea that hooks your Blamtastic™ lip balm to your bag, notebook, belt, bookbag etc. My four year old daughter is going to get her very own Blamtastic™ as her Valentine’s Day present and I will keep it for her for special occasions. Not only is Blamtastic™ very affordable at only $2.99 each but it is sure to be a hit! To purchase Blamtastic™ or find a store near you head over to visit their website and learn more.
