Winter dictates that all lip balms in the arsenal are to be released this time of the year. I think that’s enough metaphors for one post.
It doesn’t get as cold as New Delhi in my city, but the air is very dry and even people with perfectly normal lips start having problems in winter. Here’s what I use to keep my lips soft and nourished at all times.
You might have heard of Nuxe Reve de Miel plenty times by now. I’ll keep it short and sweet. It’s hydrating, actually repairs lips and keeps them soft over a long time. The semi matte finish and texture is great. I always use this at night, maybe in the morning if I feel like I need something extra.
Light and Plentiful
I have a dream, collecting all the EOS lip balm types in the world. I’m currently on my second one, Blueberry. It’s gonna take a while! I’ve previously reviewed the EOS Lip Balm in Strawberry Sorbet which is pretty much flat now and I keep it near my desk. It’s a good lip balm for day wear. I can wear lip products over it and it’s not too slippy or shiny.
Handbag Edition : Tinted
Okay, this was an impulse buy and one that I won’t be repurchasing because I don’t think I need it. Dior Lip Glow adds a unique tint to your lips depending on the temperature. Mine turns a very nice deep pink and it’s very moisturising. Plus, how cute is that packaging?
Handbag Edition : Problem Solver
I use my Dior Lip Glow sparingly but when I’m on the go and need some lip soothing, I turn to the Nivea Lip Balm as I have for the last 25 years. If it’s not chapped lips (which I admit happens rarely now) my recurrent problem is irritation around the lips due to sun sensitivity. This takes care of it in seconds. It’s also really cheap and tiny so I can carry it in any kind of bag when I’m out.
These are some of the lip balms I’ve used before and love but don’t have them at the moment. The Body Shop Hemp Lip Protector is a good replacement for EOS, it’s a light day time balm. L’occitane Shea Butter Lip Balm is a thick moisturizing balm you can substitute for Nuxe.
Let me know what you love using! Happy Holidays! ^_^
