The Yankee Candle Company has come out with some new cosmetics in the form of lip balm. At first look, these tiny cosmetics may be mistaken for tiny candles, as happened to me when a coworker eyed a tube of the lip balm on my desk at work! I laughed and asked her how long she thought a candle that size would burn?
This was an understandable mistake as the little lip balm containers look like tiny renditions of The Yankee Candle Company’s large 22oz. Housewarmer jar candles. The ‘jar’ on my desk was less than 3″ tall including its removable lid!
How to open Yankee’s Candles New Lip Balms
When you pick up a little Yankee Candle lip balm it appears to be one solid piece and requires some thought as to how you might open it. That is, unless you are one that does not mind reading the label where you will find that all that is necessary to open the lip balm is to ‘twist and pull’ the top off! In some cases, you may need to remove part of the plastic label that is taped over the two adjoining pieces.
Once you remove the tiny lid, simply twist the bottom of the ‘jar’ to raise the lip balm up above the jar’s lid for application.

Yankee’s Candles New Lip Balms Taste, Smell, and Feel Good!
While I personally wouldn’t recommend eating this wax in bulk, I can attest that licking one’s lips once the balm is applied is okay. I’ve been using Yankee’s Black Cherry flavored lip balm and enjoy the smelling the cherry scent for as long as its applied!
When one YC lip balm user applied the Vanilla Lime flavored lip balm and her companion leaned into her to smell it, the comment ‘You smell like a daiquiri!’ was heard! This gave me the idea that it could be beneficial and enticing to wear the Vanilla Lime flavor of YC lip balm when out on a date!
Not sticky, waxy or gummy, Yankee Candle’s new lip balms have been compared to Burt’s Bees in texture and its lip-smoothing quality!
I also found that applying my Black Cherry flavored lip balm at a time when I’m craving sweets will help me curtail actually eating a sweet for some time! Thus wearing the lip balm might help assist one in sticking with a diet!
