My lip balm collection :)

I have dry skin, and very dry lips- so especially in cold weather I need a good lip balm. I've collecting lip balms for years and years- and I've carried around some kind of balm everywhere I go since I was about 8, so naturally I have quite a few by now!

I thought I'd start a bit of a new series or reviews, this time on lip balms (concentrating on the ones that are actually still available; unfortunately quite a few of mine are old and discontinued)

I store my lip balms in an old e.l.f. box (recycling or being overly cheap?) which works really well for me- they're all together and out of the heat (HA! It's freezing today, I'm wearing fingerless gloves to type this!) and light. I decorated it with a little wrapping paper and snipped off the two side flaps to make it easier to open and close quickly :)





Perhaps I have too many lip balms... but I do use them all- I rotate through a lot and have at least 1 in my bag and one on my desk all the time!


e.l.f. Candy Shop Lip Tins- I'm SO sad they're discontinued.


Luca's Papaw Ointment. This stuff is AWESOME!

Some Body Shop lovelies :)

Lip balm from visionarysoap.co.uk

Carmex: Original and Cherry.

Primark Coconut lip balm.

e.l.f. Studio Conditioning Lip Balm.

Flava-Crave lip balms, how very 90's - love it! :)

W7 Sliders, very yummy scents.

Avon Rich Moisture.

Nivea Caregloss and Shine

What's your lip balm collection like? Are there any lip balms you think I'm missing? (I'd really love an EOS one!)

  1. I have a thing about lipbalm too, I love the blue flava craze and ELF's candy shop ones. Still have some left. I did a post like this a while back (http://enigmatic-rambles.blogspot.com/2010/09/lipsalve-addict-or-chapstick-whore.html) really should update it though a year is a long time for an addict!

  2. I'm so sad the lip tins are discontinued- mine are beginning to run low :( Yep, I bet you've gained lots in a year (I know I have...) but it's a good addiction to have- we'll always have soft lips!
