LtoR: Carmex Lime Twist, Burt's Bees Lip Balm, Vaseline Red Lip Tint, Soap and Glory Smooch Operation
Brrrr, now that the temperature is starting to drop I'm definitely starting to feel the cold. The drop in the weather also means that dry flaky lips are coming into force and with a vengeance may I add, which let's face it never looks or feels nice. So I just wanted to do a little post on my favourite lip balms that help keep my lips soft and moisturised in even the coldest of days.
Carmex's Lime Twist* is a new addition to my lip balm collection, and I have to say I absolutely love this balm. Not only does it smell like fresh lemonade - one of my favourite smells - but it also leaves my lips feeling super soft. I have the worst habit of biting my lips and ripping the flaky skin off, which results in my lips feeling sore - but I find that once I pop some of this one it helps to heal the skin and give them so much needed moisture. This is basically your standard lip balm, that is cheap and cheerful but does the job!
Next up is Burt's Bees replenishing lip balm, Burt's Bees are my favourite lip balm products. I think I own every balm possible from them - I know it's bad! Saying that I really do love the pomegranate flavoured balm, it not only smells delicious but it gives the lips a slight tint which leaving them looking and feeling healthy.
I can't talk about lip balms and not mention Vaseline, I was introduced to Vaseline as a wee teenager and it was always the in thing to have a tin of Vaseline tucked away in your school blazer. Anyways several years later and I'm still loving Vaseline. One of my favourite releases has to be the Paint the Town Red Lip Tint (so much that I bought a couple for backups at Christmas), it not only leaves a subtle tint to the lips but it also adds that much needed moisture to my lips that is definitely needed for the autumn/winter months.
Lastly we have Soap and Glory's Smooch Operator Lip Butter Balm, this was something I tried at Christmas in one of their infamous gift sets. First things first this balm contains the signature Soap and Glory scent, which for me is a big selling point to their products - as I'm sold many times based on how a product smells. Secondly this is one of those products that over night can transform my lips instantly, I do find that with this I can often skip my Lush lip scrub as this will bring my lips back to their former healthy selves just on its own.
So there we have it, these are my choices for the perfect winter balms. I'd love to know what lip balms you rate!
