Currently loving...Bomb cosmetics and Carmex lip balm

2014 seems to be the year for matte lip products and whilst I love the finished look, it does have the tendancy to accentuate every little dry patch of skin. Which is why for the last few weeks I've been giving my lips some extra care and attention with these lovely new lipbalms:

Currently loving...Bomb cosmetics and Carmex lip balms

 Bomb cosmetics what a melon lip treatment and Juicy pineapple lip balm

Carmex jasmine green tea lip balm

Bomb cosmetics may be best known for their bath time treats, but actually their fruity lip balms are rather good too. The Juicy pineapple one in particular smells so fresh and tropical and with ingredients such as coconut oil, lanolin, sweet almond oil and vitamin E it's nice and moisturising on the lips too. Considering they're only £2.49 each they're surprisingly long lasting on the lips and is one of the few high street balms where I don't feel the need to constantly reapply throughout the day. The only downside is that the little pots aren't the most travel friendly, so I tend to keep these on my desk and have another lip balm for my handbag.

To this day Carmex cherry remains one of my favourite lip balms, but for SS14 there's a new Jasmine green tea scent. Being a big tea drinker, I was intrigued about what the new lip balm would smell like and I'm pleased to say it doesn't disappoint. There's a slight hint of leafy almost bitter green tea which is nicely balanced out by the sweetness of floral jasmine. Dry lipped fans will be glad to hear it's still the same nourishing formula that we know and love, and there's spf15 for sun protection too. Plus the squeezy tube means it's nice and hygienic for on the go applications.

Have you tried either of these 2 lip balms? What are your favourite products for keeping lips soft and moisturised?


  1. Juicy Pineapple sounds like an amazing flavour! I don't think I've ever seen a pineapple flavoured balm - about time!

    1. You're right, thinking about it I've not seen a pineapple flavoured lip balm before. More companies should start making them x

  2. Ooh I love these! I normally use Nivea as a balm but I might give this a go x

  3. Ooh juicy pineapple sounds amazing! I love Bomb cosmetics <3
