Confessions of a Lip Balm Hoarder

Every time I walk into boots I can not seem to leave without a new lip balm/butter. I love them for day, I love them for night, I love them for moisture, I love them for gloss, I love them for colour, I love them for scents. 

Basically, I just love them. So I thought I would share the love and let you have a little nosey around my collection and supply you with mini-teeny reviews on them!


As you can see, I like my Korres Lip Butters and have them in: Plum, Rose, Quince and Mango. They are moisturising and add a nice sheen of colour onto the lips, a go to for a quick fuss-free colour when my lips are wanting a little nourishment!


I love the Nivea Lip Butters for their scent! They smell, mmmmmmm, yummy. Unfortunately they are a little white so I don't use them much outside the house but you can be sure that there is always one nearby in my house!


My favourite Vaseline is the Rosy Lips as they give a lovely subtle pink sheen on the lips with mega gloss, the pink bubbly was picked up on a whim and I do like it! I mainly use these as multi-purpose products. I like to use them to add gloss onto the lips, I use them on dry patches on my skin and if I have stubborn eye make up which just won't move! I slather on some Vaseline, gently rub it on my eyes/lashes and then remove it with a damp cotton pad. Easy and effective!


Now these lip balms are THE most DELICIOUS smelling balms EVER. I can assure you every time you apply this at least one person will ask, "oh, what have you just put on? It's lovely". I bought these two at the airport and next time I do any travelling I will certainly pick up more! The flavours I have are Cherry and Passion Fruit.


My two L'Occitane lip balms are rose lip balms as I am crazy about all things rose, they have nice packaging but apart from that they aren't gimicky. They just do the trick. A really good lip balm to help your lips keep silky smooth. These are just fail-safe products.


Even though this is a gloss, the packaging means it is stored with my balms. This is my L'Occitant Lip Gloss, however as I just stated, I treat it as a balm. It is a nice glittery pink that is a fuss-free products (so long as you don't mind finger application)


Nuxe Reve de Miel is certainly one of those hyped products and I must say that the hype is true. I use this only on a night as it is quite thick, it smells like honey which is just yumm. I use it most nights and I have barely made a dent in it so the £10 price tag is certainly worth it as I can see this lasting me a LONG time. Plus it is super effective for anyone who is suffering from dry lips as when you wake up the next day after putting it on you will still feel a thin layer on your lips!


This was yet another impulse Boots buy but I do not regret this. It is in a lovely mint scent which is great to perk you up as it is very refreshing. It is a little bizarre as it feels a little grainy however when rubbed in the grains disappear, however I do quite like feeling the breaking down of the grains. It moisturises my lips well and it is 100% Organic!


Jack Black Lip Balm is technically a "mens" lip balm but don't think us ladies can't use this too! It is very very minty and has almost a tingly feeling on the lips which really does refresh you. I absolutely love this product but am saving it for the summer as the freshness of this is just going to be incredible on any of those warm clammy nights!


Last but not least is a VERY well worn Burt's Bees lip balm in mango. I am not in love with the scent of this product however I find this perhaps the most effective lip balm I have ever tried, after just one application my lips feel sooo smooth and like new. I always have this sitting by me and my laptop.


What's your favourite lip balm/butter?
