Which Lip Balm?

October 04, 2011 | , , , , , ,
For me, lip balms are a necessity. My lips are so accustomed to having lip balm on them that having dry lips feels like death to me. I having wuss lips. 

Anyway, I have a few lip balm favourites. I'm a big fan of Blistex Lip Conditioner SPF 20 and Chapstick Classic Strawberry SPF 15 . Recently I've also been loving Maybelline Baby Lips in Anti-Oxidant Berry SPF 20. 

Blistex Lip Conditioner (yes, the white tub one) is a cult favourite. Almost every female I know regards this as their favourite intensive lip balm. Uh oh! According to my research, this product lacks sufficient UV protection. I've also discovered that the menthol we all love so much does more harm than good, irritating dry lips. 

To me, the Chapstick Classic in Strawberry and the Maybelline Baby Lips in Berry are very similar. I love the packaging of Maybelline's Baby Lips range, they're so fun! Both of the lip balms have a delicious smell but, in my opinion, the Baby Lips is a little less .. artificial? I guess that's the word I'm looking for. They both moisturise my lips and work as a great lip balm or lip stick base. 

Would I recommend these? Yes. I'm probably more likely to recommend the Maybelline Baby Lips but that's just me.

I haven't tried the other three flavours (Relieving Menthol, Soothing Cherry and Energising Orange) but next time I might give cherry a try. Have you used any of the others? Can you recommend a different lip balm?

Always look your best,

  1. I love Baby Lips! I stopped using Chapstick because I wasn't a fan of the smell and that's so disappointing about Blistex! I loveeee Blistex!

  2. I know. I absolutely love Baby Lips lip balms! Have you seen the new packaging? If not, check out my January Priceline haul. I love it so much that I bought three more of them while Priceline was having a three for the price of two Maybelline promotion.
    I was so bummed about Blistex too, yeah! I mean, I love their lip balms. I researched it quite extensively though and that was definitely the consensus. :(
