I’m obsessive with my love for lip balm. I wish I could tell you that I’m only joking but I really can’t (I once bought 100 lip balms during one of my routine trips to Müller in Ljubljana. True story). I carry at least three in my bag.
In honour of this, I’m going to share three of my latest purchases with you. I hope you like them…
Lip Quench Balm, Balance Me, £8
This 100% natural lip balm is perfect for natural skin care lovers like me. It has a delicious scent of spearmint. It hydrates my lips and protects them from harsh weather extremes (sure, winter is a lovely time of year but it can be tough on our skin!).
Ingredients include coconut oil, sweet almond oil, beeswax and jojoba seed oil. I love the slanted applicator which makes application super easy!
Antioxidant Lip Balm, The Organic Pharmacy, £12
I LOVE this glossy lip balm. Seriously. I feel as though words can’t express how amazing this is.
What’s not to love about the yummy ingredients (moisturising shea butter, antioxidant-rich pomegranate, soothing rosehip and vitamins A, E and F for further protection) and the sleek packaging?
This is such a pleasure to use. It makes my lips unbelievably soft and keeps chapped lips at bay. It also immediately offers hydration, which is very important at this time of year.
This might actually be my new favourite lip balm. Which is why I’m even more devastated that a day after buying it and testing it for this review, I lost it. I was busy applying it while outside and I thought I’d put it back in my coat pocket. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the case and I ended up dropping it somehow on my way home.
To say I’m distraught is an understatement…
Bubble Gum Lip Balm, Crazy Rumours at Holland & Barrett, £3.50
I’ll be honest, I usually avoid lip balms with flavours such as bubble gum because I’m concerned the ingredients won’t be natural but I’m pleasantly surprised with this beauty!
Made with certified organic shea butter (which also contains vitamins A and E to help protect my lips from harmful UV rays) and jojoba seed oil, this is to die for. The oh so tempting scent of bubble gum is exquisite!
I would definitely buy this again!
