Lip Care Mayhem...

Good morning my lovely readers,

How are you this glorious Sunday morning??
I got up this morning, walked the dog, had breakfast, put on some music (Audra Mae's version of "Here I go again") , took a few pics, made myself a hot beverage and decided to write this post for you.
A couple of days ago I was looking through all my products and realised that I am obsessed with lip care products (took me a while huh??!!)
I am a lip care junkie...there...I said it...!! Now with that obsession comes a certain level of expertise as far as lip balms and treatments are concerned. Now, first of all, let's talk about lip scrubs. There aren't all that many lip scrubs in the market however I have tried a bunch and I am happy to report that I only liked one and that is the LUSH lip scrub (I have the "sweet lips" and "pop corn" versions). I also like the one I made myself some time ago. Here is a picture of both of them...
These scrubs are both sugar scrubs and they serve the same purpose. I have a post on how to make your own lip scrub which you can read it HERE
However, if you think this product  is a waste of money and time you can also use your toothbrush. To be honest, though, I find that a little gross. You can also buy a separate toothbrush to use for your lips which ,frankly, is a better idea as far as I am concerned. 

Now, after, you've scrubbed your lips you have to follow up with a product that will moisturise and protect your lips from further chapping and dryness. 
Here are some (yep...some...)of my picks....
On the far left is my current favourite which my friend Kate recommended and it is the NUXE Reve de Miel. This divine lip balm is a tad bit expensive but totally worth it...!
The yellow egg-shaped product is the infamous EOS lipbalm. I like this during the summer time. It is not very moisturising but it is fairly protective.
Then, we have, the Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm which is one of my favourites for spring and summer since it has a minty/ tingly effect on your lips which is very refreshing.
Vaseline lip therapies (The "Rosy Lips" version is shown here) used to be my go-to lip balms when I was at uni. I remember going through them like crazy. I still like them (I have all 5 versions) but I have so many these days that I neglect to use them.
Next, I have the Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine. This is an all-time favourite of mine and it will, forever, have a place in my collection. It is ,especially, good if you want moisture, protection and a bit of colour, at once. 
I also love the Apivita lip Care, lip balms. They are more practical than some of the potted ones and they smell so good. They provide moisture for your lips and they are made with all-natural products.
Last but not least is the Elizabeth Arden 8-hour cream. This is a multi-purpose product that I cannot live without. I use it as a treatment for my lips whenever they are very dry or chapped. I also use them for my cuticles to keep them soft, as well as on any dry spots on my face.

That is all for today guys...I hope you liked this post. Please let me know whether there are any lip care products you swear by and you think I should try...!

xoxo

  2. Oh, I <3 the 2nd photo! I'm crazy about lipbalms, though I'm trying to use up the ones I have atm- would be unfair to let them collect dust and take up so much space... I really, really want to try out the Nuxe lip balm! Lovely picks, girl!
