Apicare Manuka Honey Lip butter with pomegranate review

Hi everyone!
I was planning to add my April Glossybox review today, but... I got the red "Something for you" card through the door :/ I don't know how that happened. I was in all day... I will pick up the parcel tomorrow and review my box on Sunday.
Here is a quick review of Apicare lip butter I have been using for over a week. I wrote a review of Apicare moisturisers before, so feel free to have a look here.

Apicare Manuka Honey Lip Butter with pomegranate 8g* £7.50 link

INFO: This 100% natural lip balm contains NZ beeswax, active UMF 16+ Manuka honey, plant oils and plant butters to hydrate and moisturise your lips, with the added benefit of a natural sunscreen to protect.
Key benefits:Natural zinc oxide provides SPF15 protection from damaging UVA and UVB rays. Pure New Zealand Beeswax and active UMF16+ Manuka honey work with natural plant oils & butters to give a thick, creamy long lasting lip balm. Pure essential oils give a yummy subtle flavour to this lip balm.
MY OPINION: I really like this lip balm/butter. It is highly moisturising and leaves my lips really soft and smooth. I use it anytime I feel like my lips need moisture, about 5 times a day :)
Like other Apicare products, you need the tiniest amount so it will last for a few months if I keep using it 5 times a day. The flavour and scent are delicate and all natural. It contains SPF 15 so you don't need to worry about sun protection :) The consistency is quite thick when it comes out of the tube, but as soon as you put it on your lips it melts and feels lovely and smooth. I noticed that consistency changes in different temperatures, the colder it is, the thicker it gets.
It also gives my lips a nice light pink(ish) sheer. Gorgeous!
I also like the packaging, you need to admit- it is really cute.
