Hello everyone, how are you all doing today?
I'm writing about painful lips today, because, let's face it, it all happens to us: having painful or sensitive lips in winter and sometimes even summer! I didn't really care about lipbalms these previous years because I never even had damaged lips. Maybe dry lips but nothing too serious. Anyways, this year I started to use them everyday. Also, it started to freeze a few days ago so why not try to prevent painful lips?
I got a bunch of lipbalms that I wanted to try out and show to you, so here they are!
The first ones I got were strawberry and raspberry scented nourishing lipbalms by Yves Rocher. This one was quite expensive, if I can be honest! 3,50 euro, which is about $4.55. I don't know how much you like to spend on lipbalms but mine are normally never that expensive.
I really wanted to try it out and it looked like a good product so I got it. Also, the jar is pretty big, I don't think you'll run out of this product in a month. I do like the scent and the texture, it's moisturizing and protecting. I like to apply a big layer to make sure it doesn't come off as easily.
The next product is a bit of a lipstick ànd lipbalm product. It's the YSL volupté sheer candy glossy balm. As the name says, it's more of a balm instead of a lipstick. Puts a nice, tinted, very soft and protecting layer on your lips. It also smells great and stays on for quite a while. LOVE it!
Of course, it's YSL so you should think about the money you want to spend. I can tell you that it's pretty expensive, especially if you want to use it as a lipbalm, which means you'd use it everyday and it would be empty in a couple of months.
This last product, ah, it's got to be my favourite one (exept for the YSL lipproduct but I really use it as a lipstick, I don't just put it on when my lips are painful.)
It was in my October Deauty box (click here to read the unboxing post) and later I wrote a review on it (click here.) I really love this product.
It stays on long, doesn't smell weird, moisturizes better than any of the other products I've shown you in this post and it's so soft! Also, it's not like there are glitters in there, but it looks a bit shiny on my lips, I really love that! I have no idea how much this costs, because it was in my Deauty box,
but I'm pretty sure I'll repurchase this baby!
Are there any lipbalms you'd recommend?
