I’ve tried so many lip balms. So many of them just end up drying out your lips. Chap Stick is awful. Just a waxy balm that does a whole lot of nothing and so many are exactly the same. I just end up throwing away money and I have a hard time throwing out stuff, so I end up hoarding a bunch of crappy lip balms.
My lips were getting extra chapped this winter, so I went on the hunt for the best lip balm. I researched on the googles, read many blogs like mine and of course checked Pinterest. People raved about EOS and Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment. Thanks to Sephora, I received a sample of Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment and I love it. It’s texture is smooth and it does moisturize. You can notice a difference on your lips just after a few days. It’s on the expensive side though, costing around $22.50 at Sephora. However, you have a variety of tints and most importantly it works!
I bought the SoftLips Cube as I was in line at CVS. It was on sale and I had a $1 deal buck so I got it for a whopping $2.50!!! I really like it. It’s Pomegranate Blueberry, but it smells more like artificial strawberry. It’s not bad though. I really LOVE the texture. I can reapply all day, it’s my crack. Anytime, I’m anxious and need something to do I apply some. It’s like my adult teddy bear. Anywho, it’s the same as the regular Softlips stick. It usually costs $3.49 at Target, but check for deals. I notice it’s always more expensive at drugstores, same goes for EOS.
The last one I bought was the EOS Sweet Mint lip balm. Its texture is not as smooth as the Softlips or Fresh Lip Treatment. The Sweet Mint flavor does tingle and cool your lips. I bought it at Target for $2.69. I like it and I would check out other flavors down the road. And remember buy it at Target compared to drugstores, it’s half the price!
Overall, I recommend all three. They work and they’re fun and they’ve made me into a lip balm addict. Usually I hate anything too heavy on my skin and these balms don’t feel too waxy or heavy. Which lip balms are your go to’s?
