Lip Ice JellO’s, plus new Pina Colada Flavour

I’ve been wanting to get my hands on these new JellO’s for a while now. Lip Ice has only been around FOREVER (I wanted to say since I can remember, but then I checked my facts and realise it’s been around since roughly 20 years before I existed). If I try to think of my first Lip Ice memory, it’s definitely slightly melted Musk or Bubblegum flavour sticks, and how good they smell.

Back in present day, Lip Ice has gone vintage (Ha! A plot twist…). The tins look really cool, and the Lip Ice is infused with additional Vitamin E. It’s available in Original, Cooling Mint (a sweet spearmint) and Cherry. Both flavours smell pretty good, but I’m a sucker for anything minty, so that one went into my handbag. Original is completely fragrance free. Other than that, there’s not much to say about it – it’s good, old fashioned, petroleum-based Lip Ice.

There’s also a new Lip Ice stick on the block. I have to hand it to the fragrance formulator – it really, really smells exactly like a Pina Colada – the whole creamy coconut-y pineapple concoction. I was, however, a little disappointed in the packaging – I thought it looked cheap, and was wondering what the rest of the Lip Ice range looks like. This resulted in a image googling extravaganza (it’s currently 12:38am as I type this) and came to the conclusion that it’s just this particular one that I’m not loving – it’s the yellow-tube-white-cap-blue-logo combo. The rest of them still look pretty cool. So sorry, Lip Ice, we’re all good.

Lip Ice products are available, well, pretty much everywhere. JellO’s sell for around R17 each.

PS I happened to google the lyrics to Escape (Later known as the Pina Colada song) by Rupert Holmes, and they’re pretty crazy, and I never realised it’s kind of a love song… People be taking lots of drugs in the 70’s.

I was tired of my lady, we’d been together too long.
Like a worn-out recording, of a favorite song.
So while she lay there sleeping, I read the paper in bed.
And in the personals column, there was this letter I read:

“If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
If you’re not into yoga, if you have half-a-brain.
If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape.
I’m the lady you’ve looked for, write to me, and escape.”

I didn’t think about my lady, I know that sounds kind of mean.
But me and my old lady, had fallen into the same old dull routine.
So I wrote to the paper, took out a personal ad.
And though I’m nobody’s poet, I thought it wasn’t half-bad.

“Yes, I like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
I’m not much into health food, I am into champagne.
I’ve got to meet you by tomorrow noon, and cut through all this red tape.
At a bar called O’Malley’s, where we’ll plan our escape.”

So I waited with high hopes, then she walked in the place.
I knew her smile in an instant, I knew the curve of her face.
It was my own lovely lady, and she said, “Oh, it’s you.”
And we laughed for a moment, and I said, “I never knew”..

“That you liked Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
And the feel of the ocean, and the taste of champagne.
If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape.
You’re the love that I’ve looked for, come with me, and escape.”

“If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
If you’re not into yoga, if you have half-a-brain.
If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape.
You’re the love that I’ve looked for, come with me, and escape.”
