The first time I had hear of/seen anything about Miners was when I used to see the ‘Tin o’Tint’ tins in a pharmacy – There’s something rather iconic about them, they’re one of those items that many people seem to have heard of, even before they actively know of the brand.
The ‘Tin o’Tint’ balms already come in lots of flavours (Cherry, Mango, Watermelon, Grapefruit and Cocoa Bean) but it’s just been released in a new scent/colour and that’s Strawberry!
As you’d expect the balm is a strawberry red/pink shade which is rather beautiful. The balm is a really sweet smelling strawberry, it’s quite strong but in a nice way – It sticks around on the lips for a little while too.
The balm is really sheer if you apply just a small amount, in a thin layer, it’ll add just the tiniest touch of a tint.
It doesn’t take much more to build it up to a darker, more strawberry, shade – I really like the colour, not too red, not too pink, it really does look like you’ve been stained by strawberries. The balm isn’t heavy on the lips and it feels nice to wear – I can see why they’re such a well loved product.
These tins only cost £2.99 which is a great price – You can pick them up from the Miners Website as well as various pharmacies.
