I don't think there's anything more trustworthy for adding moisture to sore, dry lips than Vaseline. It's a brand that's been around for years but never fails to deliver. I personally think that the new Vintage Collection packaging is their best and the formula is still as great and as reliable as ever. I recently purchased the Cocoa Butter edition having never tried it before and I am just in love with the way it smells. Rosy Lips is great for when you feel you have to wear lip balm rather than a lipstick as it adds a nice pink-y tint whilst still soothing your lips.
I LOVE this lip butter and it's definitely the best one I've found so far. From the first use it soothed my lips, added moisture to them and stopped them peeling as much. I use this every evening and sometimes in the day if I'm at home. The only downside is that if you put more than a little tiny bit on it can make your lips look a little white, which isn't great if you're out and about.
I've had this lip roll-on for a good few years now, but it still performs and hasn't gone off yet. I really like this as it's really cooling and soothing on the lips as well as being 100% natural. It also gives a really nice shine to your lips and is very easy to apply.
The Body Shop 'Born Lippy' lip balms - Raspberry & Strawberry
So you can probably tell I rate the Body Shop lip balms. I love the texture of these lip balms. They're so easy to throw into your bag and apply throughout the day, and they're so moisturising and shiny without being sticky on the lips. The strawberry one is quite transparent, just providing moisture and shine but I'm not quite sure on scent, as it's quite a fake strawberry. I picked up the raspberry one when I was in London as I hadn't seen it in the Southwest and I wish I had picked up a couple more things from that range because it still seems to be avoiding my closest Body Shop, but I love the scent of this one - it's really fresh and real.
Extracts Lip Balm - Pomegranate and Rosehip (possibly discontinued in the UK)
I love the scent of this one. It's beautiful. It's also very moisturising and the pot lasts for such a long time. It provides a sheer wash of colour as well which I really love as an on-the-go solution to bare lips.
A number of years ago, I gave a friend a 'Make It At Home' Lip Balm Kit from Filberts Bees for her birthday. Of course, she got straight on and made them, and kindly gave me a tin. I love the lip balm! Despite the wonky lid sticker (which still messes with me to this day), it's an amazing lip balm. Now this is the only Filberts product I have tried, but if this is a representation of the whole brand, then... wow. I put this on at 7.30 am and could still feel it on my super moisturised and very soft lips at 12 o'clock. If that's not impressive, what is? This is the original formula, but I know they also have flavours such as mint choc chip. I have not found them locally but I will track them down and let you know!
Maybelline Baby Lips - Electro (Pink Shock) and Dr Rescue
I love baby lips. Firstly, they're perfect for the winter months when all lipstick would do is stick to dry patches. They give colour, shine and moisture all in one. I especially love the Dr Rescue (which was free when you bought 3 Maybelline products) and I am so impressed. It's not only a lovely shade of baby pink, but makes your lips feel a bit tingly when you apply it, which cools and soothes them leaving them really soft! I swipe this on every night before bed and its a lovely feeling.
Stay beautiful x
