Getting Lippy

With summer fast approaching I decided to switch my lip balms up, nobody wants to be caught crusty lipped whatever the weather. In this post I will be sharing how I have been keeping my lips hydrated who knows when your lips will need to be smooth for that summer holiday fling or cheeky festival kiss (not that I need to worry about that, but I do not want lips drier than the desert because that's an awful base for any bold summer lip.)

Brit Balm Cherry Flavoured Lip Balm
I am sorry, but first of all how cute is this packaging? This lip balm contains SPF 15 perfect to protect your lips from burning in the sun. This is definitely the more hydrating of the two and it also leaves a pretty pink sheen to lips. It also has a sweet smell and by sweet smell I mean it literally smells like sweets, I think this product is probably marketed towards a young teen audience from the packaging and smell, but I am not afraid to admit I love it.

Oh my gosh- the smell of this product is UNREAL literally good enough to eat the mango scent is the perfect summery lip addition. I find this product heavy when first applying, but nonetheless it does the job of keeping your lips hydrated for a long time. It leaves a nice clear glossy look to the lips also very natural yet pretty looking perfect for a hot summers day or a fuss free picnic lip so you don't have to worry about reapplying your lipstick after stuffing your face. I would not suggest this for mega dry lips as the product is definitely not the most hydrating on the market, but for a quick everyday application it is sufficient to add moisture to lips.

What are your favourite lip balms?

  13. Awh I didn't even know The Body Shop made lip balms like that, it's so tiny and cute haha! I had the body butter in this scent before and it smelled so incredible so I'd love to try this one out, just a shame it isn't very moisturizing since constant dry lips is my curse ;(
