Sadly, we’re rapidly heading towards Autumn now and before we know it, the weather will be back to it’s horrible cold, dull days again! If there’s one thing I hate about the colder weather, it’s chapped lips and I thought I’d write a post today to give you my top picks for lip balms to suit every occasion! This post is very kindly sponsored by EOS but of course, all opinions are my own!
The All-Naturale One – Sweet Cecily’s Mojito Lip Balm £3.50 I’m not massively fussed on the ingredients of products (please don’t shoot me!) but it is always nice to know that something is naturally sourced, handmade and contains no nasties! This Mojito lip balm ticks all those lovely boxes and also smells heavenly! This comes in a handy little tin and is a firmer formula compared to the likes of Vaseline etc meaning you don’t run out too quickly.
The Quick Fix One – Eve Lom Kiss Mix £16.00 This has a nice tingly sensation and is more of a quick fix than a long term protection product. It ever so slightly plumps lips and leaves them feeling glossy and smooth. It has SPF in and is menthol fragranced which explains the lovely fresh feeling. The nice thing about this is that it can also be used over lipstick too!
The On-the-Go One – EOS Strawberry Sorbet Lip Balm* £6.50 This little balm has really taken the world by storm and with it EOS (or Evolution of Smooth) has become somewhat of a household name both stateside and her in the UK! This lip balm is so handy for chucking in your handbag and using on the go as you don’t have to dip your finger into a tin and get all grubby! This strawberry scent is incredible and I can see why they’ve become something of a collectors item with women as the colours and scents available are just dreamy!
The Ones With a Hint of Colour – Clarins Natural Lip Perfectors £18/£18.50 Available in both a gloss and a balm format, these little tubes are just heaven! There are a variety of colours available and they look lovely and natural on the lips whilst still adding a little something something. I can’t even describe how amazing the scent of these is and it always makes me want to eat them (not advisable!!). I have had my eyes on the red shades for a while so I think i’m going to have to try that in the future! The gloss can also be used on top of lipstick for a glossy finish!
The Intensely Moisturising One – Clarins Hydraquench Lip Balm £19.50 – The only lip balm I use if my lips are in need of a huge moisture boost. One application is enough to sort them out and the rose wax in the formula leaves them silky smooth. The tube is nice and handy to avoid any grubby fingers which I really hate! The formula is by far the thickest of the ones I’ve mentioned so it’s better used at night time but it does soak in reasonably quickly so is okay for the day too but will last a lot longer on the lips than most others!
Have you tried any of these lip balms? What are your favourites?
