Lip balm edit

Dr Hauschka lip balm, Dior Creme de Rose, Nuxe Reve de Miel, Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream, Clarins Hydraquench lip balm

As you may realise, I am a lip balm hoarder. I just can't get enough of them. I find that they are one of the easiest skincare products to buy. You don't need to do much research and they are relatively less pricey than other skincare items. I have however developed a love for a few lip balms that are on the expensive side.

My absolute favourite is the Dior Creme de Rose that everyone is raving about. It leaves my lips feeling so soft and nourished and is not too glossy. It leaves a rather nice sheen to my lips and looks really pretty when applied on top of my lip tint. Dr. Hauschka lip balm was one that I did not really enjoy using at the start. It had a really herbal smell and didn't seem to keep lips moisturised for long. But as I have kept using it I have grown to like this balm. Although I would probably not repurchase it when I run out simply because my Creme de Rose works better. the Nuxe Reve de Miel is another balm that I didn't like when I first bought it. I find it a bit disappointing since it is so highly raved about. It is a nice matte waxy balm but I don't feel as though it keeps my lips moisturised for longer than 1 hour. However I will keep using this until it is finished but will not be repurchasing. It smells really pleasant though. The Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream is a firm favourite of mine. I tend to use it on my lips in the morning just before I get out of bed since I wake up with really dry lips. I also use it on my cuticles and basically any dry or flakey skin. Lastly I have the Clarins Hydraquench lip balm which to be honest I bought initially because I didn't feel like splurging on the Dior Creme de Rose. This Clarins balm is quite similar to the Creme de Rose but just slightly stickier since it comes in a tube form. I really enjoy using this one too but for some reason prefer the Creme de Rose.

So these are my current most used lip balms. What are yours?
