New lip balms

 In recent weeks, both my beloved Carmex and Vaseline have come to an end, giving me the opportunity to try out lots of exciting new lip balms:

Seascape peppermint lip balm

This little pot contains extracts of beeswax, honey and jojoba seed oil, making it a seriously moisturising treat for my lips. It has a nice balmy texture and thanks to the peppermint oil, a light tingly sensation on application. Once applied, it's relatively long lasting, and never fails to sooth and moisturise my lips, no matter how dry they are.

Balance me rose otto intensive lip salve

I love that this lip salve is 100% natural in origin, and the tube packaging means it's great for on the go applications. Compared to the Seascape lipbalm, it's lighter and more liquid in texture, but at the same time, is still very hydrating on the lips. The rose scent is nice and delicate, but I would say take care not to apply too much, otherwise you end up tasting the petals too!

No 7 nourishing lip shine

This is a great dupe for the infamous Clarins instant light natural lip perfector. The hybrid lipbalm/gloss adds a very sheer wash of colour, is non sticky, and feels super hydrating on the lips. I'm not a fan of the sponge applicator, and it is quite difficult to sqeeze out, but the actual product is lovely. Definitely one to try out if you have a spare No 7 voucher lying around!

Have you tried any of these lip balms? What do you use to keep your lips soft and smooth?

  2. Never really tried out many lipbalms myself too because i have always stuck to my nivea and carmex! I recently discovered a really great one which is the Body shop Born lippy in a stick form and it is moisturising and smells lovely! Thanks for sharing~

  3. The Balance Me lipbalm sounds lovely. I've just bought an apple Chapsteak - super cheap but I love anything apple flavoured so had to give it a try. x

    1. So annoying when that happens, I was about to pick up some No 7 accessories yesterday, checked my voucher, and it ran out a few days ago :( Hopefully they'll do them again soon x
