Battle of the balms
Who else hates having dry lips?? I used to own a bunch of lip balms and found they all actually made my lips even drier... later found out this was a marketing scam to make you buy more. My dermatologist recommended using Vaseline on my lips and I have never looked back. Vaseline (petroleum jelly) is great at preventing moisture loss from my lips and keeping them plump. I recently started looking for petrolatum-based balms a bit ~fancier~ than my Vaseline and found these two. Kiehl's - Kiehl's Lip Balm

Lip balms for chapped lips
My recent lip balm empties! They are great!
I always carry around lip balms in my bag, because who doesn’t like a smooth lip lol? Here are some lip balms that I use on daily basis. They all make my lip super nice and soft. Glossier. - Balm Dotcom Scent? yes, rose scent, and there are more scents online for you to choose. I have mix feelings about this product. This product is easy to use, versatile, and super cute too, BUT, it’s basically thick Vaseline with nice scent. I still love it for what it is. I sometimes even use it to moisturize cuticle and hands in winter. I would recommend it if you don’t mind spending $16 on a good versatile lip product. NUXE - Reve de Miel Stick Levres Hydratant Lip Moisturizing Stick 4g Scent ? yes, smells like citrus, and honey? I would say this product does not immediately melt into your lip. You have to apply 2 layers to moisturize your lip. I guess this is great, because my old lip balm sometimes melt in hot temperature, therefore it’s super travel-friendly. Nuxe Lip balm is light weight, and not sticky at all. I will def repurchase it soon.
Here comes the sun ☀️
Some favorites that bring a dose of sunshine to my skin! ☀️ ☀️☀️ bliss - Bright Idea Serum Vitamin C + Tri-Peptide Collagen Protecting & Brightening Serum this is a new addition to my routine but I’m digging it so far. It has a great packaging, great texture, and it’s a decent price for the size! Don’t want to comment too much on the effects yet since it’s a new purchase ☀️☀️☀️ Glossier. - Balm Dotcom love this stuff, particularly the mango flavor. It smells so yummy and it has the added bonus of working as a cuticle cream as well! ☀️☀️☀️ SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. Glow Vitamin C + Turmeric Face Oil used this whole sample, but just didn’t love it for some reason. The oil was super thin, so application wasn’t the easiest. I felt like it left my skin super oily, which I don’t love in the mornings under my makeup. If it was a night product, I may have a different opinion. Won’t be purchasing. ☀️☀️☀️ SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. Vitamin C Rich Hydration Cream freakin love this cream. I use it as the last step in my morning routine, and it is the perfect texture cream. Sinks in quickly and really does brighten! ☀️☀️☀️ OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Eye Crème jury’s still out on this one. At first I really did not like the texture...unlike anything I’ve ever used. Over time, it has grown on me, since it has an opaque look on the skin. Cant tell if it makes a huge difference on my dark circles though. ☀️☀️☀️ SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream love this, duh ☀️☀️☀️ EARTH HARBOR - Sunshine Dew Antioxidant Cleansing Oil new purchase and I love it already! Smells like sunshine and does a great job for a first cleanse. ☀️☀️☀️ TULA SKINCARE - Daily Sunscreen Gel Broad Spectrum SPF 30 this is great for sun protection, especially because it also blocks blue light. However, it leaves a super shiny tint on my face and pills off if mixed with other products. Not sure I’d buy again.
This lip cream is soooo healing!🤩 Amazing Lip Product I have ever used!👍👍👍
The endurance that your lip fights environmental intrusion is the weakest in whole-body skin. The skin on the lip that ages most easily is bare all the time, and suffer environmental damage easily, therefore water and moisture is the key lesson to protect your lip. Kiehl's - Kiehl's Lip Balm Kiehl's Lip Balm 1 Classic is a very classic product of Kiehl's, the public opinion of it has actually been quite good since the lip balm can play a very good protective effect. This is a product having multiple effects because of its ingredients. There are three kinds of moisturizing ingredients, namely tocopherol, 1 2-glutaryl alcohol, and lanolin; three kinds of antioxidant ingredients, namely tocopherol, Curacao aloe leaf extract, and pentaerythritol tetraester; and the active ingredients include squalene, pentaerythritol tetraoleate, and other six ingredients; the soothing ingredient includes allantoin. This product really doesn’t have a smell or a flavor, and it's not as thick as petroleum-based products. I have tried so many different types of lip balms and this beats everyone out there. Because it solved my problem of a lifetime of chapped lips! It keeps my lips moisturized for a long time in the winter and isn't too heavy for summer. If you massage it into your lips, it stays for a few hours. It is not glossy if it is massaged in. I also use it on top of my lipstick for a glossy look! I ever used DHC lip cream, when I first try it, the moisture doesn't seem to last and it's a little grainy feeling and not smooth like I had hoped. Besides, it was okay for the first few days, but after about a week of using it, my lips developed a swollen, puffy red rash. I stopped using it for one day and it immediately began to heal. So I no longer dare to use it. I love KiehI's lip care, I believe it's a kind of fragrance-free, preservative-free, risk-free product, based on my own experience.
💻 my workday essentials 💻
Being at a desk all day can be a real drain on our bodies for so many reasons. We all know sitting for long periods of time is bad for health, but air conditioned office environments can also be extremely drying and hard on our skin. In addition to starting my day off with a hydrating routine, there are a few things I keep at my desk to keep myself refreshed and pampered all day long. 1) Face mist Face mists are the perfect mid-day pick me up. They’re a great way to keep your face hydrated and when I use a face mist I really feel like I’m taking care of myself. So many of them are packed with hydrating ingredients that it’s almost a whole mini skin care routine in itself! 2) Hand Cream I love a good hand cream all the time, but especially these days while we’re washing our hands and sanitizing SO often. I prefer hand creams that are really thick and take a minute or so to sink in...i mean you have to take a break from typing for that right? 3) Lip Balm I use lip balm liberally all. day. long. Hydrated lips make me feel instantly healthier and like my whole body is hydrated! I keep one with me absolutely everywhere I go. In addition to these three essentials, I always have a water bottle on hand because all this external hydration would be wasted if I weren’t also hydrating internally!! I also keep a mini spf at my desk to make reapplying throughout the day easy, especially right before I begin my commute home. How do you practice self-care at your desk or on the go?!
Glossier Balm dot Com
Hey beauties 🌸 What’s your favorite Glossier product? I’ve only tried these and the cloud paints. The balms are not my favorite and I wouldn’t reorder. I don’t care for the packaging. It’s not my favorite way to get lip product out as you have to place it on your finger and then apply it to your lips. The texture is okay but it’s nothing too nourishing to me. I do love their cloud paints! To me, a little goes such a long way. Only downfall for me was getting my color right. But huge kuddos to the Glossier team for sending me a replacement color when my first choice was a miss for me. I love the color Buff! It’s such a soft pretty color!
“Greatness, it’s a state of mind”
If you’ve seen my other posts, I looove lip balms! 💄 I got this Kosas Sport Lip Fuel in a clean beauty kit from Sephora! It’s a Hyaluronic Lip Balm, AKA skincare meets makeup, in a light peachy color! I only gave it a 4/5 for an objective reason. It smells a bit like peppermint oil which isn’t my fav. However, it’s very light and hydrating! Kosas clean color makeup formulas are always free of parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, propylene, gylcol, phenoxyethanol, synthetic fragrance and never tested on animals! 🙌🏼🐰 ⭐️4/5⭐️ Shade: Pulse $18

rms beauty-Tinted Daily Lip Balm
the lip balm I can’t live without.
The fresh - Sugar Hydrating Lip Balm, Watermelon is my ride of die lippie for keeping my lips soft and smooth. I have both the watermelon and coconut. I have been using this lip balm for around six months now and my lips have never been softer. I am normally not a fan of the brand fresh but this lip balm is the only exception. Both flavors taste so nice and sweet. The watermelon has a tiny bit of a pink tint so I use it in the morning as a little color and a lot of hyrdration. I am not the biggest fan of the ingredients- I normally hate fragrance skincare but in a lip product it’s not problematic and I have seen such amazing results.

Lanolips Strawberry 101 Ointment Balm
Lano - Strawberry 101 Ointment Multi-Balm This is my favorite heavy duty lip balm. It beats out every overnight lip balm product that I’ve ever had. It’s especially nice for travel so I don’t have to take a giant Laneige tub around with me. When my lips get really dry and cracked and nothing else helps, this stuff does. The strawberry smell is a little weird, but I like the coconut one and I’d definitely want to try the other scents, especially the new minty one that came out. These are good to use on dry spots overnight too. I get really dry and flaky around my both area too so I’ll put it there overnight. Love these lip balms!

Lip Fetish Lip Balms are perfectly named
Packaging: flashy and classy Formula: smooth and creamy Rating: 5/5 stars After hearing people rave about Pat McGrath as a brand but refusing to pay the price for the eyeshadow palettes, I opted for this cute sample-like product. The package came with all 3 mini balms; clear, nude, and red. The tinted balms impressed me by the color the pack for a balm. They’re subtle yet noticeable and are the perfect touch for a light summer look. I’m so glad I got the 3 pack to try out so I can purchase the full size in my favorite shade.
