My Top 5 Lip Balms
I love Lip Balm. Fact. I'm not sure if it's because I'm really not a fan of lipstick or lip gloss, or if it's because I hate having chapped lips (who does!) but I can not live without lip balms. So, I was thinking that it's about time I shared my Top Five Lip Balms, that everyone has to try, at least once.
- Super Cheap
- Handy little tins, that fit perfectly in pockets, hand bags, even larger purses
- Virtually everywhere sells them!
- I sometimes struggle to get the lids off, especially when hands are greasy or sweaty due to having to "pull" in order to get the tins open.
- Product can be a little greasy
- Honey Trap (my favourite)
- Double Choc
- It Started With a Kiss (ooh-eer)
- Lip Service
- Mint Julips
- None of Your Beeswax (gotta love that name!)
- Sweet Lips
- Ultra Balm
- Handy little tins
- Personally, I find these tins a little easier to manage than the Vaseline ones, because they twist, rather than pull off.
- Available in so many different flavours, so the chances are that you're going to love at least one of them!
- 100% natural
- Taste yummy
- Smell yummy
- Some of the flavours really are not to my taste at all
- Eventually, they can get a little sickly in both taste and small
- I don't live near a Lush, which sucks big time, and means I don't get chance to buy it that often anyway!
- They can be slightly price for the size of the tin (nevertheless, they do lost a long time).
- Original (Hint of Honey)
- Peppermint Pucker
- Fruity Orange (definitely my favourite. It tastes delicious. Not that I ate it...!!)
- Tangy Lemon
- Organic Dark Chocolate
- Organic Dark Mint Choc
- Espresso Mint Choc
- Espresso Choc
- Manuka Pucker (NEW)
- 100% natural
- Smell absolutely divine
- Made in the UK
- No unnecessary ingredients
- A nice variety of flavours to choose from
- Traditional in the sense that they come in a tube, rather than a tin, and they're the only traditional style lip balm in my list, so that's pretty special :D
- Some of the flavours are a little sickly, for my tastes
- A little greasy
Price: £3.25 which is a fairly good price for a natural lip balm, in my opinion.
Stockists: The Anita Grant website.
Blistex Med Plus.
I had no idea that we could get the product over here in the UK, because I'd always been looking for a tube, and only bought the tub out of just needing something over the winter months, but I was over the moon to discover that it was the exact same product. Using it takes me back to Canada, which I love.
But, in all seriousness, I love this product because it's medicated, which is perfect for tackling dry and chapped lips, but it's also not too strong or sickly in flavour or smell.
Available in: Of course there are quite a few Blistex products, but for this article, I'm really only talking about the Med Plus one.
- In a handy little tub
- The tub fits easily into your pocket, handbag etc
- It's really easy to open
- Smells nice
- Leaves the lips feeling all tingly
- It isn't too strong
- Lasts a long time
- I sometimes find it to be a little bit too greasy
- I find it to be a little pricey, but it does last, so this is a con I can live with, especially during the winter.
I reviewed this wonderful little balm only a short time ago, so I'll try not to repeat myself too much, but I absolutely adore this product. It's small, it's cute and it's quirky, and I have to say that I am a huge lover of anything that is cute and quirky!!
- Summer Fruits
- Lemon Drop
- Honeysuckle Honeydew
- Medicated Tangerine
- Sweet Mint
- Adorable packaging
- 100% natural
- Smells incredibly delectable
- Fits in pocket, handbag easily
- Easy to use/open
- A little bit expensive
- I've gotten through mine really quickly, although a lot of people say theirs have lasted a long time...maybe I just use mine too often!
