Have I told y’all how much I love lip balms? They are such staples for me. And I have them everywhere. In every purse. In my car. In my office. In the medicine cabinet. You won’t catch me anywhere without them.
Lip balms do something that most glosses and lipsticks can not do…moisturize. And for that, I can appreciate them. Very rarely will you see me applying a gloss or lipstick without having applied a lip balm first. Many moons ago I reviewed MAC’s lip conditioner here. As you can see, I am still faithfully rocking it. But it’s not my favorite.
My favorite would be Korres’ Lip butter in Jasmine.
Oh.mi.goodness. I have been using this paraben-free $10 lip butter for months. And look at that….I still have quite a bit left. I love the way it smells and it feels just divine on the lips. And then there’s Burt’s Bee’s lip balm..
I’ve purchased about 3 of these. For under $3, they aren’t bad at all. Another paraben-free lip balm that delivers but I hate the packaging. It is SO hard to open. But The Merry Hempster’s lip balm isn’t.
This vegan lip balm so rocks! The peppermint flavor lasts for hours as it conditions. You can find more about this brand (sold at Whole Foods) here. They have so many different flavors. Must try them all! When I’m in the mood to be the little bee that I am, I am all over Oyin’s Honeystick.
This is my third tube. I literally ate the first two. Nah, I’m kidding. But aside from loving to support wonderful Jamyla and family, I just love the way the Honeystick feels and tastes. And when I want people to give me the double look and ask “WTF is that?” I pull out this kid.
The organic EOS lip balm in its spherical wonderment just looks cool, uh? One glide and I can conquer both the top and bottom lips at the same time. It is shea butter based and was a gift from Mommy.
Lip balms made it in my Top Products of 2009 video for a good reason. Ain’t nothin’ sexy about chapped lippies.
Do you wear balms? Which one is your favorite?
