You know how some people constantly find random bobby pins and hair elastics at the bottom of bags and pockets and drawers? That’s what my life with lip balms is like! I can’t live without a good lip balm on hand and I have so many running around the place I can’t keep count. My current lip hoard favourites are as below:
Salus Vanilla Lip Balm - Love this lip balm from Melbourne local, Salus. It’s all natural with a great subtle vanilla scene and comes in a cute little metal tub. If anything my only complained would be that because it’s wax based it tends to get a little hard in colder seasons and takes more effort to get a good swab of balm out
Pure Papaya Lips - Classic paw paw in a tube kinda stuff BUT it’s 100% natural. I switched to this after finding out that my previous paw paw actually had parabens in it which I wasn’t keen on. This is a little pricier and comes in a smaller tube but it also has calendula added to it and paraben free makes me feel a lot better about using this so often
Korres Lip Butter - I am obsessed with Greek beauty brand, Korres and the lip butter is no exception. They come in a little tub in various tints ranging from natural to a darker red like “Wild Rose” which is my favourite that I currently have on the go. Great for a little colour on the lips without having to put in too much effort.
Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment - Love love love this one! I’ve only been able to find this brand in the USA at this stage so usually grab it while I’m over there. It comes in an easy to use wind-up lipstick style stick. Like Korres, this comes in a range of different tints. My absolute favourite is ‘Rosé’ which adds a beautiful sheer pink tone to my lips so you barely know I have something on. What I also really love is the fact that it’s SPF 15+ friendly… so no burns on those smackers in summer!
What are your fave balms, both plain and tinted and why?
