I picked up a cute glass vase to put my lip balms in. I thought at first it was going to be way to big, but I should’ve known I had a fair few lip products here and there to put in it. I like it – it sits on top of my dressing table and I can see them all instead of them being hidden in bags and tucked away in the draw. I’m attempting to get my makeup collection into some kind of order and I see so many people with the cutest storage ideas. I like things that are a little different and this vase was £4.50 & is perfect.
My tiles were a wedding gift from a friend they have a j & v on for John & Vicki. I like to put my jewellery on them as they stop my dressing table getting scratched. I also have a thing for birds and this one is from Malta – I love it, it’s so pretty.
Now on to my Lip Balms
I love the Maybelline Baby Lips & have heard on the blogger grape-vine that these are finally coming to the UK. This makes me so happy. I have 2 that I received in a blogger swap and they smell amazing. They are also a great lip balm and I find them super hydrating. I have the flavours Coral Crush and Twinkle.
Burt’s Bees lip balms are so good. I’ve been known to have one of these in every handbag & its the only lip balm my hubby will use & I can vouch that he has soft kissable lips (too much information?). My fave one has to be the pomegranate oil one. Its soothing and smells divine.
My tin of Smith’s Rosebud Salve has lasted my a while and is still going strong, it is quite like Vaseline and works pretty well at keeping my lips hydrated. I picked up this tin in American Apparel but you can get it online here for £8. As with quite a few lip balm products this can be used on chapped skin, minor burns and general skin relief.
eos lipbalms are cute in their fun packaging. Some people don’t rate them, but I like them, thy keep my lips smooth and they smell so good. They’ve such a great selection of flavours / scents and are 95% organic and 100% natural. They’re also paraben and petrolatum free and have vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil in them.
Figs & Rouge this company have really nice packaging and the product inside is great too. They use 100% natural ingredients and are free from parabens and mineral oils. They too have a huge range. I have the Cherry and Vanilla one and I love it. I want to try the Pomegranate one next.
Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream* – This is a miracle worker and I use this at night mostly as I tend to wake up with such dry lips. This leaves them so hydrated and when I wake up I can still feel the product on my lips. This is a handy size as I can take it with me on the go & It has been in my bag with me all winter. Again this is a product which has so many uses. So is great to have in your collection.
LP Skin Therapy Refining Lip Exfoliator* – This has tiny beads of jojoba oil which gently polish your lips. I have been using the LUSH Bubblegum lipscrub which I like but this one is different. I like the jojoba oil as it leaves my lips so soft and smelling amazing (kiss anyone). This also has alot of other great ingredients in like Vitamin E, Sweet Almond Oil and Cocoa Butter. So your lips are getting some great treatment.
Korres Wild Rose Lip Butter – this is such a lovely brand. I have tried a few things from them but I really like their Lip Butters. This Wild Rose one is so nice now that we are heading into Spring. It has a really nice tint to it, its perfect for a hint of colour when you’re going for a fresh-faced look.
Do you have a collection of lip products. They are just so easy to pick up when your shopping and we have had quite the cold winter so my lips have needed some TLC. What do you store yours in? Id love to know.
