Dry Lips? Lipbalm Favourites

Favourite Lip Balm

Dry and chapped lips aren't exclusive to the Winter months, they're a necessity in any makeup kit. Obviously the environment contributes to lips being more dehydrated than usual. However, its one item guaranteed to be in any of my purses or uniform pockets at work year round. Especially for work I can have up to five in my uniform pocket weighing me down. I've narrowed down a few favourite lipbalms that all have similar characteristics so no need to go into much detail individually. Why are they my favourite: as a whole these are basic, no-frills, hydrating, un-tinted lipbalms. None are tinted enough to change the colour of your lips. They moisturize, non-sticky, and condition. Exactly what lipbalms are meant to do. However, not all lipbalms are created equal. In the past I've used balms that actually dry my lips. Also, a few are scented therefore depending on your preference here are my favourites.

Say Yes to Carrots
Inexpensive and various flavours!

Maybelline Baby Lips lipbalm in Quenched
I liked the tinted Baby Lipbalms so much I had to have the clear version. 
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour® Cream Limited Edition Lip Protectant Gloss
Adds a bit of shine! The limited edition version comes in an easy squeeze tube version. Multi-use product that can be used on dry spots elsewhere on body. Great to use on cuticles!

Scentuals Body Care Lip Conditioner from
100% Natural, made with organic shea butter and also available in unscented version. So natural that you can feel the natural fiber which melts, leaves a slight shine. Made in Canada!

Vaseline Petroleum Jelly
Can't get any more basic than vaseline! Great multi-use product, an oldie that works!

Smith's Rosebud Perfume Co. Rosebud Salve
Although tinted in the tin no colour is deposited on lips. Great oldie for a reason! Leaves lips glossy!
