Maybelline Baby Lips
I fell for the Baby Lips hype, despite hearing so many mixed reviews in the blogging world. I feel that they are very much like Marmite, with opinions on these completely divided. I am most definitely in the 'love it' camp. The formula is incredibly nourishing, the tint is subtle enough for me to wear every day, and I love the packaging.
Miss Sporty Dr. Balm
The Miss Sporty balms are rather similar to Maybelline's baby lips, but the thing I like about these is that they have an angled tip like a lipstick, making application just that little bit easier. They are not as nourishing as the Baby Lips, but they smell delicious.
Carmex Click Stick
Carmex is my go-to product when I am in need of a bit of SPF. I took this skiing with me and fortunately my lips were nowhere near as dry as they normally are when faced with the elements. I love the original Carmex tins, but don't like applying the product with my finger, so these Click Sticks are brilliant.
Balm Balm Rose Geranium Multi Purpose Lip Balm
I do like a multi-purpose balm, and this Rose Geranium one by Balm Balm fits the bill fairly well. It is a clear balm which is only mildly scented, so I am happy to use this on any areas of dry skin I might have. I much prefer lip balms in stick format, as I am always aware of how unhygienic it is to keep sticking your fingers into a pot and then slathering the product onto your lips. For that reason I have very few products of this type, but for some reason I am quite keen on this one and will use it up until it's finished.
I first tried an EOS balm that I bought from eBay before the Balmi equivalents were released in the UK. I have to say, I think I actually prefer the Balmi! The product is much softer in texture and seems to glide onto your lips a whole lot easier. The scent is sickeningly sweet, although unfortunately it doesn't taste quite as good as it smells!
