It’S SKIN — Macaron Lip Balm in Green Apple Review

It’s been such a long time since I’ve had to even think about “Back to School,” which is usually the day after Labo(u)r Day in North America. But today, Peanut started his first day of a full preschool year (he started preschool earlier this year, mid-term). We packed him up with all his school supplies, and he was so excited to go back and see his teachers and friends!

I hope those of you who are going back to school today—both students and staff—have an awesome day!

I’m just looking forward to having practically a whole day to little Olive and myself, since Peanut’s off for the full day this year.

So, today, I’m reviewing the cute little lip balm that has been sitting above my keyboard: It’S SKIN Macaron Lip Balm in the Green Apple flavor.

It’S SKIN is a Korean beauty brand that generally focuses on skincare, though they also have a makeup line. Their Macaron Lip Balm is the first of their products I’ve tried, and who can blame me when this is the packaging?

I haven’t tried too many (I mean, I don’t need all those extra calories), but the best ones I’ve had so far are at Cluny Bistro & Boulangerie in the Distillery. Anyone have any recommendations for better ones? The absolute best macarons I’ve ever had were at the most beautiful little coffee shop in Avignon (I think), so I’m almost definitely not getting to have those ever again!

I forgot to snap pics of the macarons, but here were some other sweet things we had at Cluny last month:
