Lip Care Favourites.


I know I'm not alone in owning a full drawer of lip balms; they're one of those items I can't resist picking up, but only really have a few select favourites when it comes to keeping my lips in tip-top condition. I've always struggled with getting bad chapped lips since being a little girl, and found myself having an obsession with vaseline when I was around fourteen, although I'm moved onto much better stuff since then. Here's a few of my lip care favourites..

Most of my balms are for the evening as I always wear lipstick during the day, so the majority are a heavier formulation. My current favourite is The Body Shop Aloe Lip Care Balm, which I'm actually almost out of and a repurchase will be 100% necessary. This is a thick, almost gel like texture, which applies really nicely but seems to soothe any dry patches or flakiness immediately, it's a miracle worker. Another lot from the Body Shop are their lip butters, which the Honeymania one is my favourite. This is a little lighter so perfect for everyday wear and gives a nice glossy finish to the lips, as well as smelling and tasting absolutely delicious.

Speaking of delicious, I have to move onto the Nuxe Reve de Miel lipbalm, which is an absolutely gorgeous chocolate orange flavour. It's very thick so really only good for evenings, but again it cures every little bit of dryness. The Dr.Lipp Nipple Balm is a great, thick number as well, but it gets used a little less as it's too much like hardwork! It needs to be warmed up before it will come out of the tube, so I find myself reaching for others for a quick fix, but again it's a fantastic one if you really need something heavy duty for the evenings, and you can even pop this on dry skin, ezcema or cuticles!

And of course, a lip care favourites wouldn't be complete without one of the Lush Lip Scrubs. I have the Popcorn one, which I like to buff in with an old toothbrush. It removes any dry bits and preps the lips perfectly for lipstick. I'm pretty sure every beauty blogger has one of these floating around!

What are your favourite lip care products?

  1. I want a LUSH lipscrub so badly, but I can never decide on a flavour. I'm obsessed with popcorn though, so I might have to pick this one up although Mint Julep also seems like it would taste amazing.

    I think I'm the only blogger in the world that doesn't own the Nuxe lip balm! My go to balm is Lasinoh Nipple Cream, it's just the same as Dr Lipp but cheaper :) xxx Thou Shalt Not Covet

  6. The Honeymania balm is one of my favourites too. I really like Yves Rocher's lip balms as well

  7. I've wanted to buy that Aloe lip balm for such a long time, & every time I go into the store, they don't have it. It's so unfortunate!

    I LOVE TBS Honeymania lip balm, soooo good! I like NUXE too, but not as much Rose & Co Cherry lip balm - I use it every single night for around 3 or 4 years! :) X

  16. They are so good! Probably quite easy to make yourself, but I like the flavours and convenience of them.

  18. It is really lovely, although I do find it quite hard keeping it on my lips and not licking it all off!

  19. Haha, possibly! It took me a while to cave to the hype, but it's well worth it.

  20. Aaah, I forgot the Korres lip butters! They're perfect if you need a bit of hydration during the day but still want a pretty colour.

  21. They're all so lovely, it's definitely a tricky decision!

  22. I currently use the Philosophy Kiss me tonight lip treatment at night but once I've used that up I don't want to repurchase it as it's £17 and I had a bad reaction to one of their other products so I don't want to buy from them anymore. I think in the winter I'll be investing in the Nuxe one x
