I’ve all the time liked lip balm, they’re just like the gateway drug into skincare haha. I reside in a really dry space so I’ve to maintain my lips moisturized, and I’ve discovered some favorites and a few duds out of the balms I’ve tried lately.
Lypsyl: this one jogs my memory of standard Burt’s Bees, in that it is a beeswax lip balm with a minty taste. It is undoubtedly costlier although, about $5 per tube or 2 for $8. I like yet another than Burt’s Bees as a result of it would not really feel as sticky, however it’s nonetheless moisturizing and protecting. The principle components are mineral oil, petroleum, paraffin, coconut oil, ceresin, beeswax, and shea butter. The tube is so cute, the yellow on the facet is a bit of bee that you just push up and all the way down to get the balm to come back out. I price it 4/5, as a result of I personally do not lie the stickiness of beeswax.
Easy Reality Natural Moisturizing Lip Balm in Strawberry Lavender: I just like the scent of lavender, however I did not notice how sturdy it will be on this lip balm and I did not like that I’d get a style of it now and again. It is a huge tube that I purchased for round $3, however it basically solely places a skinny layer of balm in your lips that stays on the floor and does nothing for moisture except you re-apply. Its fundamental components are sunflower oil, beeswax, cocoa butter, and coconut oil. I price it 1/5, as a result of it does nothing to assist my lips.
Sure to Coconut Coconut Lip Oil: this one is attention-grabbing, as a result of as an oil its very skinny and light-weight on the lips versus regular lip balms. As you may think about, it leaves lips shiny and glossy after software however it has by no means felt sticky! Nevertheless, I did not really feel prefer it moisturized my lips the best way I anticipated an oil to and I needed to re-apply it lots. There may be some eucalyptus oil to offer a minty tingly and scent, however there’s additionally a touch of coconut scent so I’d keep away if you happen to do not like both. It was about $5. I price it 3/5 as a result of it is like a wholesome lip gloss and provides short-term aid, however not moisturizing sufficient for me.
Jack Black Intense Remedy Lip Balm in Cucumber Lime: this is among the few lip balms that I’ve that has SPF (25) in it, and since I’ve began utilizing sunscreen on my face I undoubtedly need to prolong it to my lips as nicely. I purchased a 3-pack of those for round $13 with totally different flavors, my boyfriend took the Pure Mint and my mother took the Lemon Basil. All the scents are fairly sturdy, however you do not style them as a lot in your lips. The feel of it from the tube feels one thing like Carmex or Vaseline, however it’s extra clean and never as oily. My boyfriend likes that it would not depart a shiny sheen on his lips, and it is good to have a lip balm that goes on matte with out drying. This balm lasts rather well on lips, moisturizing and defending them. Apart from the sunscreen, the primary ingredient is petroleum and there is some oils and beeswax as nicely. I price it 4.5/5, as a result of it is nonetheless only a tad sticky for me haha.
Recent Sugar Rose: I’m very disillusioned on this lip balm. For the worth of $24, I used to be anticipating lots. The balm has some advantages, like SPF 15 and the totally different colours you possibly can select from for a lightweight tint. The rose shade might be their hottest, and it provides me a pleasant refined shade on my lips. Nevertheless, I discovered that I can solely use this on my lips when they’re already clean and moisturized. If I attempted to apply it to dry lips, it will make the dry pores and skin tablet up and acquire within the center. It is a pretty balm to placed on after your lips have been scrubbed and once you need some shade however don’t desire lipstick, however in any other case it feels sticky and never moisturizing in any respect. I price it 2/5 due to the great tint, however the horrible moisturizing talents.
Vaseline Lip Remedy in Cocoa Butter: this was about $2 and has a refined scent of cocoa. I needed to strive the creme brulee, however could not discover. Each evening earlier than I’m going to mattress, I apply regular Vaseline to my lips and get up with clean lips. I had issues with very dry lips through the day and heard good issues about this tiny model, so I made a decision to get it for on-the-go software. I do not like that it is available in a bit of jar, as a result of I really feel disgusting sticking my finger in there and smearing it on my lips. This additionally feels extra skinny than the traditional Vaseline. It moisturizes nicely all through the day, however I’ve to re-apply it usually with the gross finger methodology. Finally, I will maintain this at my boyfriend’s place to make use of at evening when I haven’t got my regular Vaseline with me. I price it 3/5 as a result of it moisturizes, however would not final lengthy on the lips and I do not like the applying methodology.
