Lip balms, anyone?

6:20 AM

Hello everyone!
It's been a month since we moved house YAYY!!! I wrote this post a couple of weeks before we moved and after I had packed all of MY stuff. While the others were at work packing the rest of the stuff for which I was supposed to help, I took a LONG break and wrote about a bunch of lip balms I came across during the cleaning process. Well here goes…

I’ve used Labello lip balms in the past- labello Starfruits lip balm in both cherry and pink grapefruit and their sun protect lip balm, to name a few. (The pink grapefruit happened to be one of my favorites but I couldn’t find it here in SL.) I will start off by saying that I’ve never had an issue with them. The hydrocare balm smells like vanilla which is lovely but I find it difficult to evenly apply the lip balm and it feels heavy on the lips. The one I own broke just after a couple of months and it just seems to melt away which is disappointing. Maybe it’s just this particular one but I don’t know for sure. I would say if you do want to try their lip balms go for the ones in the Starfruits collection.




The next one I found was the Janet lip balm in wild strawberry. Janet is a local brand and I liked the mint lip balm a lot so I bought this along with it and it has a nice strawberry scent. However it tends to come off in chunks after using it for a while which I wasn’t happy about.




The next one is the Oxyglow lip balm in lavender. I am so glad I found this because I couldn’t remember why I didn’t use it as much and then I realized that it wasn’t in the retractable form like the others, meaning I would have to get an applicator. This has a strong lavender scent and if there is one thing you should know about me, it is that I love lavender. It’s easy to apply (once you get an applicator, I don’t think it’s wise to apply with finger tips all the time) and it is transparent, so that makes for a great base before application of lipstick. It does help with dry lips if you use it over a long period of time.




The lip balm by Farmasi is an intense moisturizing balm with shea butter and jojoba, vitamin A & E (It says so in the packaging) which softens and hydrates lips. The packaging in hot pink is very cute and the smell is pleasant and not too strong. The consistency is quite thick but it isn’t as thick as the hydrocare one. It has a clearly visible pink tint. It does feel slightly heavy on the lips in comparison to others (excluding the hydrocare). Although I’m not sure if it moisturizes enough it does make my lips feel soft. Having said that, I think it’s a good one to have if you’re on a budget because it’s very cheap.




Baby lips by Maybelline. Need I say more? This is my favorite lip balm and you can tell by the letters wearing off on the packaging. You can consider that a con but gosh this lip balm does wonders. The one I own is rose addict but there’s a wide variety to pick from. This lip balm really softens my lips and doesn’t feel heavy on my lips at all. It has a light pink tint and smells somewhat like roses or I’ve possibly been conditioned to believe so. It’s just the best I’ve come across even though it falls on the pricier side here. I’m going to buy some more soon so let me know which baby lips lip balms are among your favorites?




1-Labello Hydrocare lipbalm
