I… seem to have quite a few lip balms.
I really like lip balm and I always have one on me, in my pocket, in my bag, in the car, wherever. Even so, I think it might take me a while to get through these!
These little cuties are halfway between balm and gloss, and they smell as incredible as they are cute! The blue one is mint, the yellow one is vanilla, the silver is cinnamon apple (amazing) and the pink one is strawberry. I have a grey one (chocolate orange) and a gold one (caramel) as well, but they’re tucked in pockets somewhere… You can buy these here.
These Nivea balms are my standard grab and go balms – no fuss, and simple to apply. The Soothe and Protect has no flavour, the Pearly Shine has a sort of sherbert flavour, and the Soft Rosé one is rose-flavoured. I would recommend any Nivea balm except the Pearly Shine, which leaves a shimmery white cast on my lips – I can’t imagine it would suit anyone!
This beautiful shell actually has a lip balm inside, which I’m using very sparingly as I don’t want it to be finished! It makes me feel like a mermaid when I use it – and even better, the shells are natural and the lip balm is completely organic. Take a look at the Shell Lip Balm website to see other gorgeous designs!
Two of my more recent finds here, although both already beloved. The Burts Bees lip balm has a pretty floral honey scent and is very thick and moisturising, which will be lovely for colder weather, and the Body Shop Born Lippy Plum lip balm (which I got free with a Vouchercode a couple of months ago) is a very nice tinted balm with the most gorgeous fruity scent.
In fact… I really love the Born Lippy balms. I have five, but only because one was free about a year ago (good old Vouchercodes again) and the others were on a better and better offer the more you bought, so they ended up being just over a pound each. These are my favourites for keeping by my desk.
And then these, which you’ve seen me rave about recently (Honeymania, Dragonfruit). I love love love the texture of the Body Shop lip butters – they’re like body butter for your lips (duh). And it helps that these smell divine too!
What do you think, Doc? Can I be cured? (Does anyone else have this unreasonable a stash?)
