My favourite lip balms


There is one addiction which I am desperately trying to tame whenever I am shopping - lip balms! With drawers overflowing in pots and tubes, I am on a strict regime of admiring the product for a couple of visits before actually trotting to the till with a new shiny packaging and holding it tightly. But a sneaky buy occurs every once in a while and as usual I say to myself: "You need to finish at least one products first" before failing miserably.

This is my absolute favourite bunch and as I am aware, I am not the only fan of these particular lip balms. First is Burt's Bees Refreshing Lip Balm with Pink Grapefruit. A quite new discovery for me, it has a truly wonderful smell and taste - just as it says on the packaging - refreshing yet sweet. The miniature stick fits into the smallest pocket so I can always have it with me. My all time favourite is Carmex Cherry Jar which has a firm place in my make up bag, so I carry it with me literally everywhere. I've just finished one jar and this one was repurchased many months before. I've tried a couple of The Body Shop lip balms over the years, but this one from Honeymania range has to be a winner for me. It is thicker that others and has a sweet floral scent with honey taste. NUXE Rêve de Miel Lip Balm has a huge blogger following and is a star lip care product of many. I totally get the appeal with unique formula not leaving lips greasy but soft and plumped. It is also great to use as a preparation for a matte lipstick. I own two EOS Lip Balms, but this Sweet Mint variation is my favourite. It is a pleasure to use with a cool minty-coloured sphere and a fresh mint taste. Last, but not least is my Holy Grail and something I use every single day before I go to sleep: Rose & Co Cherry Kiss Lip Balm. I cannot get enough of it's sweet scent, perfect formula and cute tin. It gives a hint of cherry colour too, so you can truly achieve the cherry kiss they are promising.

What is your favourite lip balm?

  2. Really want to try the Nuxe one, I have a lot of love for Carmex but recently nothing has been doing it for me like Elizabeth Arden 8hour cream! That stuff is just so soothing and moisturising. xx
