Balm Chicky Balm Balm

Discovering a cool new beauty brand is one of the fun parts of being a blogger. Balm Chicky Balm Balm is a new lip balm created by two best friends and coming to a Target near you soon.

Abby and Liz met years ago and since that day have wanted to work together. 5 years after that initial meeting Liz came up with the idea for Balm Chicky . From there the "friend end" came about. How to share your balm with the girlfriends but still be sanitary ? Much research on tubes , patents and more along with a graphics redesign until 7 years later, they landed on The Shark Tank TV show. Cool right ? They didn't win but got the exposure they needed and Target came along to give them a shot.

 Balm Chicky Balm Balm comes in an extra large tube (11g/.38 oz) with retro '70s graphics. A throwback to the cool large glossy balms we had back then. I think mine was orange flavored.

One side has a lift off cap, the other a flip cap. That's the friend end.  The balm itself is very hydrating  but feels light on lips. It has no color or shine but the flavors are really good. Not barely there but not strong. The Sweet  Baby Ginger even has a bit of a spicy kick to it.

Ingredients include organic hemp & olive  oil, along with beeswax. 

Balm Chicky Balm Balm is $ 7 and will be available by mid April at  400 Target locations in 5 flavors.

Bought one today in Tampa, but how do I dispense the pull off cap end??
Also would like to find the Ginger flavor?

Hi Tammy, You have twist the friend end to get the pull off end to turn up. The friend end however doesn't come up . Does that make sense ? The Ginger flavor is online, not sure about stores. I imagine more flavors might reach stores as time goes on but not sure.
