Today is my birthday so I hope you don't mind a scheduled post on my favourite lip balms! I won't be able to reply to comments until tomorrow but you can always catch me on Twitter @Leer31 have a lovely day! x
Carmex moisturising lip balm and Lanolips have long been favourites of mine for hydrating lip products. Recently however I’ve found a new gem to add to my favourite lip balms, the Nuxe Reve De Miel Lip Balm which you can find a full review of here. I cannot stand having dry lips so I’ve nearly always got a balm of some kind in my bag. Here are the three that are most likely to feature in my Lily bag.
A slick of this every evening before bed ensures I hardly ever get cracked or chapped lips. I suffer from coldsores on the odd occasion and this stuff helps no end. Beyond hydrating and an absolute must have in every girls make up bag. I also love that it's got a beautiful berry tint to it.
2. Carmex Moisturising Lip Balm
Although I don’t feel this balm has any moisturising properties whatsoever I do find it to be a great barrier balm for when it’s cold out. The one thing I love about this balm is the smell. It smells of gorgeous fruity strawberries albeit synthetic ones. Again, you can pick this up for a couple of quid from Boots/Superdrug etc.
3. Nuxe Reve De Miel
A newcomer to my balm collection. So many people have raved about this product and when I first received it I couldn’t really understand why. Yeah, it’s a really hydrating balm with shea butter and sweet almond oil but was it really worth a tenner? One morning I applied it before a lipstick and noticed how it made my lips matte (something that the other two don’t) which means it’s perfect if you want to hydrate your lips but apply a matte lipstick over the top. I picked mine up from Salon skincare for around £9 plus free delivery. It’s a nice balm which looks like it’ll last forever so I can’t see my repurchasing it anytime soon.
I won’t be without a lip balm or some kind. I think it’s true what they say, you can become a bit addicted to them. A favourite tip of mine is to get a cotton bud and massage one of the balms into my lips to take away any bits of dried up skin. It leaves them feeling silky soft and smoochable!
