I am the self-proclaimed lip balm queen/hoarder, and I am here to share my wealth of knowledge on the subject. Ha
For me, lip balms are a necessity. They go along with food and water and I usually have no less than 5 (I am sadly not kidding) on my person at all times. My lips have gotten so used to me pampering them and spoiling them that they cannot live without some form of balm. Here are a collection of my favorites!
Babylips are probably my all time favorite lip balm. Since they were released by Maybelline, I have been hoarding these things like a crazy squirrel. Seriously. I love the clear ones the best, but am growing to love the color ones more and more. They provide excellent moisture and an SPF 20.
L to R Colors: Quenched (Clear), Cherry Me (Red), Peppermint (Clear), Yummy Plummy (New Release Plum), Twinkle (New Release Light Peach), Pink Wink (New Release Light Pink), and Peach Kiss (True Peach).
Here are just a few of my EOS balms. I find them yummy smelling and tasting, not as moisturizing as most, but easy to apply without getting a build up on the lips. They also keep well in purses because of the screw top. And you can dig in your bag and always find it because of the shape!
Here are some of my miscellaneous balms. The top one is a small sized Julep balm in the Strawberry Mint Flavor. I use this when my lips needs something with an exfoliator, as this has a slightly gritty texture. I smush it together and the little particles burst a bit and my lips feel nice!
The tried and true Lip Smacker in Dr. Pepper is a cult classic. It has an amazing smell, gives lips a just bitten look, and moisturizes well.
I also love Nivea a kiss of Milk and Honey because the warm scent is so calming on my lips and it has ample hydration.
Here are some of my intense lip treatments good for night time!
I love Nivea Lip Butter in Caramel Cream Kiss because it is so emollient and smells so yummy.
And I have just discovered the joys of baby Vaseline tubs! I slather this on for a great lip treatment. Can be mixed with sugar for an impromptu scrub as well.
My other treatment is Overnight Renewal Therapy 70% White Petrolatum Jelly. It does smell a bit odd because it is refined Petrolatum but does a wonder as an overnight treatment. I love it!
And last but not least, my new favorite love of Jack Black Lip Balms. I use these daily when I wake up to give my lips a nice start. They have a Vaseline like texture and I like feeling that my lips are protected with SPF 25.
L to R: Acai Berry, Shea Butter, Grapefruit, and Natural Mint
and the bottom is my almost finished tube of Natural Mint. Sad!
I hope you enjoyed learning about my slightly crazy lip balm obsession. What are your faves?
