Eos lip balm; although pretty hard to find where I live I managed to track down this sought after object. The good points are that it has pretty packaging, which you may say if a fickle reason to like this sphere of lip balm but it means that I never lose it so I think it should be taken as an advantage. Other good points are; it is fairly moisturising and doesn’t leave my lips looking very glossy which is good as I don’t really like that look on me. Disadvantages however are that it’s not that great for me personally in the winter as my lips get incredibly dry and the eos lip balm does not offer enough moisture for this particular season.
Carmex; I did find that this helped during those cold winter months and the fact that it was in a tube meant that it was handy to carry around with me so I could keep applying it throughout the day. However personally I didn’t like the smell of this product or the fact that it seemed to sting when I applied it (it may just be me and my super sensitive lips) but it did do its job and my lips seemed to stay reasonably chap free when using this.
Palmers coco butter lip balm; this in its small tube with its heavenly smell gave me some hope that I would not have dry lips forever and it did fulfil its purpose to a certain extent. It was very moisturising and did keep my lips from becoming overly chapped but after a while the sent became over powering, this did not retract from its capabilities of being a great lip balm but did really put me off using it.
Vaseline; good old Vaseline its what we’re told to use by our grandparents, parents, really anyone, personally though I do not think it does anything to my chapped lips. I mean it did protect them from being burned by the wind but I found the little tin unpractical for taking places meaning I couldn’t apply it as often as I wished I could. Therefore the reason I properly found it ineffective was rather that I didn’t reapply it enough rather than it wasn’t good at its job.
Burt’s Bees lip balm; even though I only purchased this a few days ago, I am seeing a vast improvement in the condition of my lips. During a busy day I often don’t have time or I forget to reapply my lip balm every hour or so (this is probably the main root cause of my dry lips) but after only being applied once this morning about 10 hours later my lips do not feel overly chapped. They are still dry and chapped but are nowhere near as bad as they could be if I had not applied this lip balm this morning. I must mention that I have been applying this lip balm religiously all of yesterday so this would factor into its ability to still leave my lips feeling moisturised after 10 hours.
