If you’re a friend on Facebook, you already know about our new layered balms! (And if you’re not a friend on Facebook…what’s up with that? You’re missing all the fun!)
Back in January we created a layered balm with chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry flavors all in one tube. And of course, we called that the Neapolitan balm. Several people suggested great ideas for other layered balms, so I knew that eventually we’d add more. Well, “eventually” is now!
Our first-ever layered balm was called Balm on the Fourth of July, and was in a clear jar. Every June we bring it back for a limited run, and this year it’s in a tube! With layers of cherry, lemon ice, and blueberry, the stars and stripes never tasted so yummy! Topped with an assortment of caps in (what else) red, white, and blue.
Another summer favorite is Rainbow Sherbet. Orange, lime, and raspberry sherbet flavors are layered in this sweet treat. If you have a hard time choosing just one flavor, this balm is for you! Assorted caps of magenta, green, and orange top these colorful moisturizers.
I’m so excited about these new flavors that I’d love to give some away! For a chance to win one of each of these balms (three balms, and a total of nine different flavors!), leave your comment below sharing some of your favorite summertime flavors. Are you a fan of watermelon? Or strawberry shortcake on the Fourth of July? Maybe a fruity daiquiri is your favorite taste treat in the summer. Let us know about it! A winner will be chosen at random on June 24th at noon EST (U.S. residents 18 and older, please).
So what’s YOUR favorite Summertime flavor?
It is so hard to choose one favorite flavor for summer. I have always loved the orange dreamsicle in the summer, although I haven’t had it in years.
Emily, these balms are really cute! Summer is…Mom’s homemade vanilla ice cream and fresh picked blackberries. I REALLY miss that! (And the brain freeze that always came with it!) We had to work for it though. The kids had to crank the ice cream and brave the ticks to pick blackberries. So good!

I love the summer fruits like watermelon or a fresh peach!
These new summer balms are so cute and creative! My favorite summertime flavors are watermelon, pina colada, and sweet tea 🙂 firstname.lastname@example.org
Cute lip balms! I love the daiquiri, fruit and sherbert flavors. So summery.
Rainbow sherbet sounds yummy…if this wasn’t my idea I was at least thinking it would be a great flavor combo for your layers balms…
I first found you guys when I was given a free sample when I bought a custom made dolly bag in Buffalo, NY in 2009. Ever since then I’ve been buying different goodies as gifts for friends. I love the different unique scents!!!
I’ve always liked lime flavor in the summer: cherry limeades, lime snow cones, lime popsicles, lime sherbet…you get the idea!

Mine is definitely watermelon!
My favorite summer flavor is actually a tie. Cantaloupe or Raspberry. My family has a tradition that we make raspberry or cantaloupe ice cream on the weekends during the hot summer months. In the winter, I head over to the local university and the student run ice cream parlor for a raspberry sherbet. (Go USU Aggie Ice Cream!)
Raspberries grow very well here and are a signal that summer is half gone. 🙁
Congratulations to the winner of the giveaway: Number 3, Small Footprints!
Missy H., I love dreamsicles! Our orange cream balm has that orange vanilla flavor.
Mary, blackberries are such a great summer flavor! Here in Maine we don’t pick them until August, so I usually make Blackberry Jam lip balm in late August or early September! May have to bring it back this year!
greanbeen, I just HAD to bring back Pink Lemonade this summer. I can’t think of anything more refreshing on a hot summer day!
Jenny C., Tammy, LoveLeeSoaps, and Small Footprints, watermelon seems to carry the day! (It’s one I’ll be adding next month–can’t wait!)
Coopgrag, it surely was your idea! Sherbet balms are the best way to get all of my favorite flavors in one tube!
Jena: We LOVE Dolly! So glad you found us and happy to have you as a customer!
Stefanie, my favorites are the citrus flavors, and lime is AWESOME. I made limeade for my kids last week instead of lemonade and it was YUMMY!
Andee: My raspberries will be ready to pick in mid-July, and you’re right, it’s just about the middle of the summer. Warm, fresh-picked raspberries are incredible. I can’t wait!
Thank you all so much for sharing your summer favorites! :0)
