Ten points if you can spot my cute phone case in the photo! Haha. Lipbalms. I could end up buying so many and collecting them until my make-up drawer overflows but I promised myself to finish two lipbalms and replace them with two other pretty ones. I have been eyeing up the cute Ted Baker skincare at Boots for a while now and I knew I had to pick up a lipbalm and talk about packaging goals! I still haven't thrown the box away. What is it about packaging hoarding?! Drifting away from the review but I don't know why I cannot part away from cutely packaged make-up.
Ted Baker Blush Pink Lipbalm 9g £5.00 from Boots (link)
Quite a show stopper, a gorgeous lipbalm that screams class and well, makes your other lipbalms look basic. The balm is housed in a very sturdy square shaped pot with a rose gold lid and 'Ted Baker' engraved on the top. A very delicately rose fragranced balm that comforts and hydrates the lips well. The pot is quite weighty and looks great on my dresser too! I really like this balm and I am so glad I picked this up. So far I have been using this before bed and I love how it looks on my bedside table. I'm really enjoying this lipbalm alot lately, it hydrates my lips and leaves them feeling as soft as rose petals. I definitely think it's worth the price, this would make a great stocking filler too or even as a perfect little treat for yourself.
Body Collection Strawberry Flavour Lipsalve £0.89p from Bodycare
After picking up a much luxurious and richer balm, I needed something for an everyday and often use. I pretty much have been applying this alot during the day and it does the job really well. A super moisturising balm that smells like sweet strawberries and it was on sale too! I really loved the pastel pink packaging and the elegant italic font, it really caught my attention whilst browsing all of the lip products. I should of bought two!! I also find that this preps the lips well prior to using any lip gloss or matte lipstick. Though the balm is white in colour, this does not transfer onto the lips. Which is a huge relief! Some balms or lip butters can leave a horrible white mask over the lips but not this one. A real gem.
Do you have a go-to lipbalm?
