Three words: Botan Rice Candy.
If you know what I’m talking about, don’t you just love the edible rice paper wrapper? YUM! I ate tons of those chewy, lemon-orange flavored candies as a kid. My mom would always let me put one pack in the cart whenever we’d go grocery shopping.
I hadn’t thought about them in years until the other day when I slipped a layer of new Bite Beauty Vitamin Gel in Pink Grapefruit ($18) on my lips.
It’s one of five vitamin-enriched flavors in Bite’s new line of moisturizing, non-sticky lip treatments, and I think it tastes EXACTLY like Botan Rice Candy (but not like grapefruit), om nom nom!
The pretty color, a barely there pink tint, shines brightly with a high gloss finish, but this one’s flavor will keep me coming back for more, and more, and more. It’s that yummy!
I’ve been applying it every once in a while throughout the day, kinda like a moisturizing snack (it has a standard slant applicator), and then right before bed to let it moisturize my lips while I sleep.
It’s a good thing Bite fashioned these all-natural Vitamin Gels out of food-grade ingredients and left out the synthetics, polybutenes, and petroleum byproducts, because I might just have this tube for dessert.
Actually, I don’t think I’ll do that.
