When you clean out your bag & find all the balms
I have lip balms everywhere. And I keep buying them. It’s an affliction. This is my current collection. I’m just going to talk about my favorites. I’ve found that I can NOT use beeswax lip balms. I pass those onto my kids. It’s specific to me so I won’t receive the Burts Bees, etc. Favorite lip balms Favorite Flavor LIP SMACKER - Dr. Pepper Lip Balm Tin
nicoleshereeI can’t use Burt’s Bees either! The two times I’ve tried it, my lips broke out!

Recently I’ve gone through a lot of products and emptied a couple favourites, so I’ve changed up some products in my routine and thought I would do an updated day time routine. My first step is always cleansing, I haven’t gone through my comfort zone - comfort zone Essential Cleansing Milk but I’m pretty close to done, over half way, but it should last me at least another month. Next I spray my face with the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist with Reishi + Ashwagandha and immediately put on the Dr Dennis Gross - Stress Rescue Super Serum with Niacinamide (📍). I’ve only been using this Youth to the People spay for a month, but I’ve already seen it make a huge difference in my glowiness and hydration through the day. The serum has also improved my skin a lot as my skin is sensitive to vitamin c, this has the brightening (niacinamide) and the antioxidant protection (goji fruit) that a vitamin c serum would have, without the irritation. Next I put on my The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG (📍) eye cream/serum, this helps to de puff my under eyes in the morning. My last three steps are to moisturizer with the CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Instant Brightening Moisturizer (📍), apply my current SPF which is the THANK YOU FARMER - Sun Project Water Sun Cream and moisturizer my lips with the Glossier. - Balm Dotcom . I also want to start a new system in my posts, products with a 📍behind it on my posts, I received for free, as I’m trying to be more conscious of that. I’ve gone back on past posts and utilized this system. Thanks for reading! 📍= product was sent to me for free

OFRA - Versatile Matte Bronzer this bronzer is perfect for just a subtle glow!

I think I found my favorite lip balm!
Dry lips are a whole thing for me. I have to put stuff on every single night or they are cracked and bleeding. I don’t even live in a dry area! This Milk MAKEUP - Kush Lip Balm has become my absolute favorite daily lip balm. The Milk MAKEUP - Party Pack Kush Lip Balm Trio includes 3 “colors” of lip balm. My favorite is the Green Dragon one. It’s green in the tube and goes on sheer. It’s nearly flavorless with just a whisper of mint. I’m on my 2nd tube!!! Pros 💙 not sticky! They glide on nice and smooth with a slightly waxy feel. 💙 the container is outstanding! The cap connects to the tube with a magnet so it won’t get lost in your bag. 💙 they include LOTS of hydrating ingredients - olive oil, jojoba oil, Shea butter, sunflower oil, mango butter, moringa oil, cocoa butter, coconut oil, and cannabis seed oil 💙 the colors are super sheer so you can’t go wrong 💙 vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free Cons 💔 they aren’t “cheap”. This isn’t a $2 tube of chapstick. Each tube is about $16 usd 💔 the ingredients do include fragrance and peppermint oil so they might be irritated for those with sensitivities 💔 the Party Pack does include weird plastic packaging
September Empties: mini edition!
Today I’m doing mini Monday a little different! I used up a ton of products in the month of September, including lots of mini’s while traveling. So today I’m featuring my thoughts on the mini’s I finished. Stay tuned for my full size empties tomorrow! ✨ . . 🤷🏽♀️ voir - Sunrise Rituals: Signature Shampoo voir - Sunset Rituals: Signature Conditioner : Nice but I have long hair and it’s really hard to tell my thoughts with a tiny packet! But it did smell amazing. . 👎🏼 ORIGINS - High-Potency Night-a-Mins Mineral-Enriched Oil-Free Renewal Cream : this is a nice thick moisturizer for night time. But I can’t get past the smell. It reminds me of some bad fruity drink I had in college 😂😬 . 👎🏼Kiehl's - Calendula Serum-Infused Water Cream : this is just way too light weight and not moisturizing enough for my skin type. You might like this if you’re oily. . ❤️ philosophy - Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 Shower, Bath & Shave Gel : yess this is the lemon custard and it smells soo good! . 👎🏼 DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 : this is SO greasy I can’t stand it. . 🤷🏽♀️ DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream : I don’t get the hype behind this. It’s also too greasy for me. And I’m not supporting DE right now. . 🤷🏽♀️ Milk MAKEUP - Kush Lip Balm : I like it! But not extremely long lasting. It did melt and get messy though. Would maybe repurchase on sale. . 🤷🏽♀️ NARS - Climax Mascara : nice for volume but it dried out quickly and flaked a lot. . ❤️ CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm : yes really enjoyed this. Would get on sale. Probably will save this little tub to put some balm from my full sizes in for future travel! . ❤️ REDKEN - One United Multi-Benefit Treatment Spray : yes a solid leave in conditioner!
I’m always open to finding new alternatives or dupes of a current product that I’m using. My reasoning behind this is that if I can find a cheaper alternative or a dupe that gets the same job done, than I can use the money that I save and get more make up products or spend it on something else. Blistex - Lip Medex One thing that I’ve found a good dupe for is Lamer’s lip balm. Lamer’s lip balm is 9 grams and only lasts me about a month. This container costs $65, thats $65 per month. I’ve stumbled across Blistex’s lip balm thats available at Walgreens and is only $2 for 7 grams. LA MER - LA MER The Lip Balm This one also lasts about a month, so I’m saving a little over $60 a month! Now thats a lot of savings! Application wise they are pretty identical. The only main difference that I’ve noticed is that Blistex’s lip balm doesn’t last as long compared to Lamer’s. However, the quality is about the same when the product is active. Worst case is that you would need to reapply more throughout the day if need be for the Blistex one. Their flavor is also different. Blistex’s gives off a minty flavor where as Lamer’s give off a candy flavor to it. I like both flavors, so it doesn’t really affect me, plus the monthly savings is so much that the Blistex lip balm is a greta dupe in my eyes. I’d recommend anyone looking for a great dupe for lip balm to give this a try. It’s only $2, so if it doesn’t work out, you aren’t losing a lot of money.
They keep my lip MOIST!!!💋💋💋
💋Smith's Rosebud Salve Minted Rose Lip Balm It has a translucent pink petroleum jelly texture rose smell. I also love the cool vintage-looking tin. A dab left our lips feeling silky and smooth immediately and it leaves a pretty, healthy sheen on lips that will last you several hours. The most amazing thing is that the balm can also be used to moisture your face and hand. It works well to smooth skin and even some breakouts! REALLY recommend!!! 💋Shiseido Moilip Lip Cream It claims to be medicial use and It's very mild and effective. And it works to cure my lip inflammation in days Kiehl's - Scented Lip Balm 💋It's more of an oily silk product but not greasy with nice mango scent. It keeps my lips smooth. I sleep with a thick line of it on every night and the lipstick can stay longer. The only problem is that it left a bit of a white residue ring on the inside of lips as it dried over time. All of the 3 products work on me and keep my lips really moisturized. 10/10 Recommend!
Say bye to … which one?🧐
I must wear lip balm before going to bed every night. On the one hand, lips become very dry during my sleeping time. On the other hand, after I kept one month of this habit, I found my lips become very clean and hydrated. I have used many different lip balms, such as Mentholatum, fresh, DHC, etc. The last one is this Nivea, and now I’ve decided to replace it with Kiehl’s. The lip balm of kiehl’s is the most moisturizing one. Its color is light yellow. You can obviously feel it moisturizing when applying it on your lips. Every night before I go to bed, I squeeze out about 1mm to my lips. Compared with other lip balms, its persistence is stronger. Nivea's performance is more ordinary, if you want to keep moisture until the next morning, using this Nivea is impossible. Your lips will dry out in about half an hour. It can only be used as a regular daily lip balm too keep the moisture of your lips. NIVEA - Moisture Lip Care Although Kiehl’s only has 15ml, it is very durable. And it's very convenient to carry around. I bought it in its original flavor. There are also pear, mango, cranberry and so on. Many people think it's too oily to wear, but I think this one is the best one for winter. As a dry emergency or lipstick primer can be very suitable. Kiehl's - Scented Lip Balm
ESSENTIAL for winter 🥶
👄I bought this lip mask during the winter in NYC. My lips were painfully cracked and red and irritated. Just applying the same moisturizer for my skin over my lips simply is not enough for me during the winter time. Since I’d heard good things about this product, I went into a Sephora on a snowy day, bought this, and immediately put it on. 👄This product saved my lips during the winter time. I used it every single night before bed, and on nights when I didn’t, I’d wake up the next morning with dry lips again. 👄What I love most about this product is the fact that it doesn’t run. It stays right on my lip area, without getting oily and propagating to areas of my face like my chin. I put it on at night after all my other products and wake up the next day and it’s completely absorbed by my lips. No residue the next morning. Usually with other lip balms, when I go to brush my teeth I can see the balm leave a film on my toothbrush lol idk do you get what I’m saying? 👄It smells very yummy and I believe it has a proper ingredient list. Won’t go into too much detail about this, but includes antioxidant and moisturizing ingredients. ALSO, this has Ascorbyl Glucoside, a Vitamin C derivative. 👄I HAVENT HAD THE NEED TO USE THIS PRODUCT DURING THE SUMMER. My lips are just fine during the summer and they dont crack or need a lot of moisturizing. Which is why this product is just sitting all lonely in my vanity right now 😢. But I’m sure once winter time comes I’ll get back on it! Did I mention this product lasts FOREVER?! You literally need the SMALLEST amount. So I think it’s worth the price!

𝕋𝕙𝕖𝕟 𝕀 𝕄𝕖𝕥 𝕐𝕠𝕦...
𝕋𝕙𝕖𝕟 𝕀 𝕄𝕖𝕥 𝕐𝕠𝕦 𝕧𝕤. 𝕃𝕒𝕟𝕖𝕚𝕘𝕖 Skincare is everything. It comes first, no question but to me close second is lip care. Nowadays I don’t think you can find a person who does not carry lipbalm—even a basic gas station chapstick. Chapped lips is a no-no for guys and girls! No one wants to be remembered for rough and peeling lips— especially on that first kiss! Lately however I’ve been wanting a little more than just my average Carmex (though it does wonders), to give my lips a little more care. In my lip travels I heard of the brands Laneige and Then I Met You. I paid $22 dollars for Then I met You Honey Dew Mask and $20 dollars for Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask [vanilla] and let me say some Pros and Cons of both Then I Met You: Then I met you - Honey Dew Lip Mask 3.9/5 Pros: Portable, easy to swipe on and provides great moisture, smells like honeydew, simply ingredient list of Honeydew, Squalane, Vitamin E, and Lactic Acid Cons: a little thin, and sometimes filmy, fades and leaves my lips dry and stiff within 30 minutes to an hour Laneige: LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask 4.8/5 Pros: velvety texture, spreads like butter, a little goes a longggg way, keeps lips moisturized, smells of heavenly vanilla not too heavy or artificial Cons: you have to use your finger (or the given applicator) to apply, can be a little thick BOTTOM LINE: Laneige is Better than For 3 Reasons 1. Texture 2. Bang For Your Buck 3. More Moisture that lasts Longer Overall I am MUCH MORE impressed with Laneige than I am with Then I Met You but that’s a personal opinion based on my lip care preferences. Is Laneige the best out there? Probably not. However if a lighter, a little more user friendly lip care is your thing then it’s time for you to meet Then I Met You! **In the picture I’m wearing Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask
Then I met you-Honey Dew Lip Mask
LUSCIOUS LIPS...but not hydrated!! Soo I recently picked up this HERBIVORE - Coco Rose Coconut Oil Lip Polish thinking that the promise of velvety hydration would be fulfilled. Unfortunately it wasn’t! While I do absolutely adore the texture, the feel, and the smell. My lips never feel hydrated for very long and I find myself immediately reaching for something else soon after applying. Does this mean I won’t use? NO I will continue to use it for plumping good smelling effects‼️ just wish it was a tad more hydrating 🥺

My Lip Pop is Poppin’!
Gentle exfoliator, hydration, and lip tint all in one! One coat and I noticed a significant color change. The balm goes on smooth and isn’t sticky or quick to rub off. The scent is so nostalgic and reminds of the lip balms I used as a kid with that classic watermelon scent. So excited to use this throughout the summer! Thanks to the Cherie team for this gift! GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Lip Pop retails for $22

FAB lip therapy balm
Hi!!!! Today’s post is the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Lip Therapy !! I give it 4 stars because I do have to reapply 3-4 hours. It’s very minty and hydrating and I LOVE how it feels on my skin. I love the packaging and the little doe foot applicator and it’s lovely for sticking in my purse. It’s a top tier balm.

Lip Scrub Gone Wrong
primera - Clean Berry Lip Mask Primera Lip Scrub This is a K-Beauty Lip Scrub that does a great job at exfoliating your lips. It also smells like fake fruit. This is priced reasonably for a lip scrub as well at $20. The texture is like a lip balm with a gritty texture and when you apply it on the lips you can feel the grittiness exfoliating your lips. It feels like it really does a great job at that and helps get all the excess skin off of your lips. I would rate this as a 7/10. It does the job but it's not my favorite. It's really gritty and I don't really like gritty textures that much so it's a no for me for sure. I also think the smell is odd for it being so close to your lips. I don't think I would go by this again at all.
