Quick look: Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Lipguard!

Thank you to all my new followers the past month! I'd never thought my blog would have followers at all! I really enjoy blogging and reading others blog when time allows, I really appreciate the support!

I've been missing the last two weeks due to my final IB exams coming up next month! I hope to try to post once a week or whenever I can, but I might be missing for a while again!

This is a quick look at Thursday Plantation, an Australian brand known for Tea Tree and Eucalyptus products. I used to use their oil for blemishes but not so much anymore. This is a tea tree lipbalm my mother picked up when we were in Melbourne.

It's quite a large tube for lipbalm. Size comparison (Revlon lipstick, NYX round lipstick)

Product & Packaging!

Having used this lipbalm for a short while I have to say that I do not enjoy it at all. I love tea tree products but the balm is very dry, waxy and matte. It's not good for dry lips or lips that need moisturizing. There's a slight tingle and smell of tea tree oil however the formula feels like candle wax being applied.

The size of the tube is also quite cumbersome, I usually prefer slimmer tubes but wouldn't mind Nivea for instant as the balm is nice to use. I find that because a third of the balm sticks out of the top, it's easy for mishaps and accidental knicking to occur, so thumbs down for that!

Paid: $2.75 AUS ($2.90 USD)

Repurchase: Nope!

Recommend: Not at all if you're looking for something moisturizing!

Bottom line: It's waxy, dry, matte finish with a slight tea tree scent. This is the opposite of what I'm looking for in a moisturizing lip product! I do love other Thursday plantation products but not this one!

Are you a fan of Thursday plantation products? 
Tried any 'matte' lipbalms? or do you prefer regular moisturizing types? 
 let me know!
