Burts Bees, amazing!
Ever since I was 11 years old and one summer I burned my lips in the hot Nevada sun, forgetting to bring my trusty Chapstick on the boat, I’ve been a lip balm fiend. I’ve tried expensive to cheap and so far the bestest ever is Kiehl’s #1 in Cranberry. So emollient and makes my lips moist for a long time.
where do u get them from?
Personally I still love Beauticontrol’s lip balm. But I also love Skyn Iceland’s Angelica Lip Repair. Too bad both are kinda pricey for lip balm…
I personally LOVE Carmex tins. Tried the tubes and was not quite as pleased
My favorite is the MAC Tendertones Collection above all else.
When they come out in the beginning of summer i buy 2-3 extra to last me thru out the year.
Blistex Mint SPF 15 Lip Balm
Carmex Tins. Cheap and good. But…I don’t like to put my finger in the pot, so I usually use Burt’s Bees Pomegranate Lip Balm.
Burts Bees honey lip balm… smells like honey and keeps my lips so smooth and moisturized!
I second this! I love the strawberry star fruits one! Too bad they don’t sell it in the states
I’m actually still looking for my fav! I’ve tried many.. but I’m not 100% happy with any one of them yet. So far I like La Roche Posay’s Ceralip bc of the ingredients, etc., but I wish it was thicker!
Korres lip butter is my new favorite. It keeps my lips moisturized and I love the sheer wash of color.
Oh yeah..I forgot about Korres! Their quince one is mah fave =)
What about you? The lot, or one in particular?
Korres is THE BOMB. I have tried so many different balms and this wins hands down for me. I have the Plum one that came out during the holidays in a set, and the Guava one as well. I keep them in different rooms in my house and just slather them on when I need to. They last long and my lips are seriously softer an hour later. I don’t know how they work so well, but they truly are amazing. Nothing works as good.
Carmex: works and doesnt cost the earth..
I second with the tendertones! Gosh I hope they come back this year, mine is almost gone!
I prefer Blistex Cans, but when it comes to color, Benetint lipbalm is gorgeous too!!!
Nivea’s is my current fave oh also the one from E.L.F. in raspberry- can’t beat the price!
Blistex Lip Tone w/ SPF 15 “A Touch of Color. Total Care”. The tiniest bit of color that just looks like you have a great natural lips.
Lucas Papaw Ointment is great as a lip balm – and for just about anything else, sort of like a not so sticky (or smelly) version of Eight Hour Cream. Way cheaper too!
Otherwise, Clinique SuperBalm.
I’m a fan of Lucas Pawpaw Ointment too! I also love Burt’s Bees Pomegranate lip balm.
Carmex and chapstick
Softlips, definitely! I really like John Masters Organics’ Lip Calm too.
I LOVE tendertones, but for me these are more like glosses than balms.
carmex wins right now. I am a chapstick queen(i have tried them all, and have like 10 on hand at a time, at least with this weather carmex is the only thing that holds up, i do generally love soft lips though
I’ve recently converted into a Carmex fan. Their strawberry tube is the BEST I’ve found so far. Chapstick is …too dry for me. Just feel waxy. But Carmex is good waxy, slightly tingly, smells good, and makes my lips beautiful!
i looove my rose salve from bath and body works (so i’ll assume its be c.o.bigelow) it smells soooooooooooooo good and it’s great for my cuticles too
