I have some sort of addiction, one I’m hoping to curb however I cannot see it going all too well.
I’ve being suffering with extremely dry lips for roughly around two years
now, there is nothing that I have found that has really helped them over a long
period of time, believe me I have tried a lot! My most recent purchased is
the Nuxe Rêve de Miel which is the
one I’m currently putting all my faith in after reading positive reviews from
the majority of people.
I’ve recently began a mission to try and use some of these up and whilst
using them I have discovered that when I use the Nivea lip balms they actually
make my lips worse so, I think I may be putting these to one side until my lips
are much better. I’m not particularly keen on the Milk and Honey one however, I
have some sort of little love affair with the Soft Rose version as I’ve
re-purchased it a few times. The Soft Rose version was my first ever lip balm
that I purchased when I was younger and I simply adored it. These vary in price
to be honest depending on what they claim to do; I think most are under £2.
The Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub as seen above is helping me to get rid of any dead
skin; however I do find that I have to watch how often I use this as it can be
rather harsh if I use it too often. This costs £5.25 which is pricey for something
you could essentially make at home, but hey, it’s rather unique isn’t in that
cute little tub!
Once I have used the lip scrub I
either use the Blistex Intensive Moisturiser (mainly because it is very nearly
empty) or my new Nuxe Rêve de Mel which I got shortly after Christmas. So far I’m really liking it, I
have to go as far to say that it is probably the best out of all of them that I
have used in a long time so I’m hoping that over time it sorts out my problem.
I ordered this from Feel Unique, paying £9.50 for it which for me I found to be
rather pricey but if it works then fair game! Check your local M&S too as my
local store is now stocking Nuxe in store rather than just online.
mentions go out to Burt’s Bee’s Lip Balms as I think they’re rather nice and I
do find that they keep my lips far more hydrated than the Nivea ones I have
tried. These can be picked up in Boots and Holland and Barrett for £3.69, or of
course from the Burt’s Bees website.
Another worthy mention would be
that of the Korres Lip Butter which for me is my next favourite after the Nuxe
lip balm as it gives a lovely tint to the lips however this one isn’t as moisturising
as I had expected, so in fact it is probably in joint second place with Burt’s
Bees. I picked up my Korres Lip Butter from Cute Cosmetics in the sale however
they can be purchased from other sites such as Feel Unique; they cost £6 at
Out of all
of the lip balms above I have to say the one I really do not get on with is the
Carmex Cherry Lip Balm. I’m sure it is a nice product but I cannot leave it on
long enough to let it work, the taste for me is not very nice at all…I
probably should have picked up the mint version. At £2.70 I know I will not be
buying the cherry version again, it just isn’t my cup of tea.
Are there any new recommendations
for something new for me to try?
