My Lip Balm Collection

Like my body butter post, this post is also inspired by this cold weather we've been having. Like a lot of girls, my lips need extra care throughout the winter months, and i have sooo many lip balms, I'm never short of something to grab. So lets get to it.




I got these for my 19th birthday, and i LOVE them, i don't know why i haven't used them more! They smell amazing, and the packaging is really stylish. The one on the left is Powder Pink (942) and the one on the right is Bare Minimum (963)
You can buy these here




Vaselineeeeeee. Everybody owns vaseline don't they ! The reason i have so many is because i received the big sized tin with 4 vaselines inside as a gift for christmas.




These are my most recent lip balm purchases, and they're really similar to the Sleek Put Polishes. I love anything themed, and these love heart lip balms had me sold straight away. I would've got them all but they had sold out!
You can buy these from Superdrug, but hurry because i believe they are limited edition!




My boyfriend knows me very well, and got me this vitamin water lip balm in Fruit Punch on his lunch hour when they came free with vitamin water. The smell is AMAZING, and its SPF 15, so ill be sure to wear this everyday during summer!
I got the Burts Bees lip balm off ebay, so it was really cheap - but i can't decide about this one. Its really thick, so you have to apply a decent amount of pressure for it to actually go on. Its so minty, and i don't know why, but its really nice to apply just after you've brushed your teeth!



I got these free with my Boots points in the January sales. I don't know what make they are, but all the products from this range are a fairground/circus theme? Maybe that helps! They smell great, but its a subtle smell, which is really nice for daytime.




These are all Bodyshop. Ive had these for quite some years now, so ill maybe throw them away soon. The Passionberry (left) and Strawberry (right) smell just like they're supposed to, but the Guarana lip balm in the middle absolutely blew my socks off! The smell is so nice, i don't even use this much anymore, i just smell it. Its so fruity and refreshing, i wish i could describe it better but there aren't really any words!



I got this Bodyshop Shea Lip Butter free at christmas as part of an offer, and it hasnt even been used. I figured i may aswell use up a few things i already have before i delve my finger into another! The w7 pina colada is one of my favourite lip balms, purely because pina colada is my favourite drink. I only use this throughout the summer, purely because it makes me feel like I'm on holiday! The far right lip balm is a random i got in a set, and although i haven't actually used it yet, the papaya and mango smell is lovely.




These are randoms from Primark i got in a set a few christmas ago, and i haven't really used these much, but i am going to, purely so i can use them up and throw them away. The packaging is probably the best part about these, and the dainty little pots actually look decorative on my dressing table.




Just Pink by Next is my favourite lip balm of all time. It tastes gorgeous, and the subtle shimmer i leaves on your lips is beautiful. I will most definitely repurchase this (i think its around £2)
The lip balm on the right is a random which i got in a set when i bought a bag. I can't think of the brand, its on the tip of my tongue - maybe someone can help me out? Anyway, i haven't really used this as its completely odourless, which is slightly boring!




These are from Primark, and were £1.50 each, however they're currently on offer for £1. I love these, purely for the taste and smell. The only problem is the screw is a bit temperamental, and I've had to throw a couple away simply because it stopped working, yet i still continue to repurchase these!




I don't even want to use these because i don't want them to run out! They smell just like the cocktails they are supposed to be, ill probably end up eating them at some point.




And finally, this is from the Bodyshop, and smells just like christmas. Its also quite thick, which is perfect for winter months!



So that was my lip balm collection, thanks for getting to the end! Since i started to write this post, the sun has come out and the weather has begun to get warmer.
 Typical.
