Blistex Lipbalms

Blistex Lipbalm Trio

Blistex is an affordable lip care brand & I am sure most of us have tried at least one product from their range over the years. They have a great selection of not only lip balms but also medicated lip treatments too. I reviewed two of their new Happy Lips releases earlier this year & I have been using the Mouth Watering Mango one ever since.

Click to read my review of the fruity Blistex Happy Lips* – let me know which of the two flavours you most like the sound of.

I was excited to learn that Blistex have released their Lip Brilliance Lip Balm in Blushing with SPF15 so this is the perfect summer lip product.

‘A brilliantly shimmering balm with a gorgeous blend of ingredients to make your lips look and feel beautiful. With magically-softening Silk Extracts, naturally replenishing Vitamin E and pout-perfecting Hyaluronic Filling Spheres.’

Part of me wishes that there was no shimmer in the product but my husband assures me its not too OTT & I guess it will be pretty on holiday. This has a sweet fruity berry scent which lingers quite a while on the lips, I know some people find this scent a little too sweet but I think its OK and smells quite summery. One thing I really like about this lip balm is the subtle rosey pink tint it gives your lips, it looks pretty and makes your lips look healthy.

Blistex Lip Brilliance SPF15

This made my lips feel very soft and plump, I wouldn’t say its amazing at keeping my lips hydrated for hours but its so affordable that I don’t mind having to reapply throughout the day. Reapplying throughout the day also means you keep your lips protected with the SPF15 & looking cute with the pretty rosey tint. You can’t go wrong with a Blistex Lip balm & I hope they add a few more scents to their Happy Lips line – I’m thinking Mojito or Lemonade – very summery, what scents would you like to see them release?

So if you’re looking for something to throw into your handbag that will nourish, protect & give your lips a hint of colour then check out the Blistex Lip Brilliance in Blushing.

Current Favourite Lipbalms

To say I have a slight obsession for buying lip balms is an understatement. I use them all the time & like to have them on hand, so I have them everywhere like in my car, on my desk, handbag (every handbag) you get the picture, I am never without one. Most of the ones I have are very affordable but there are a few luxurious treats amongst them too.

Whenever my brother visits America he always gets me a few of the eos lip balms, they have so many flavours & I love them all. Right now I have 3 open & they are Lemon Drop which smells zesty & has SPF15, Coconut Milk and Summer Fruits. They all smell incredible & I totally love the quirky packaging.

Jurlique Rose Love Balm* – This is a natural salve that moisturises, softens and protects dry or chapped skin. Infused with the natural scent of roses. This balm is a great product for combating the dryness, its hydrating but not greasy & has that lovely natural rose scent. I love it.

Blistex Happy Lips in Mouth Watering Mango – This smells so fruity & almost good enough to eat. They’re a new Spring release from Blistex & although they don’t have SPF they’re still hydrating & feel lovely and smooth on the lips. So inexpensive too. I wrote a post all about the Blistex Happy Lips so if you’d like to know more pop over & take a look.

The Body Shop Born Lippy Pot Lip Balms in Raspberry & Watermelon – These are handy to have on my desk & they smell incredible. I have quite a few flavours but these are the two I’m currently using.

ESPA Mandarin Lip balm – This is a really lovely lip balm & it smells fruity but not overpowering. It has lots of nourishing ingredients like wild mango butter to condition, soften and smooth, pomegranate to increase hydration and rosemary to protect against environmental damage. The packaging is also pretty and its the iconic purple ESPA colour. It also comes with a mirror inside too which is so handy!

Current Favourite Lip Balms

By Terry Baume de Rose – This was in the wonderful Advent I Won from Laura Lou Beauty & I have been treasuring it ever since. I use it when I am going out somewhere special & I want to prep my lips. It is so luxurious & feels amazing on the lips. I use it before applying lipstick so my lips are nourished and smooth. Just look at how cute that mini pot is, I never want it to run out.

Crazy Rumours Black Cherry Lip balm* – OMG this stuff is so good, it smells identical to cherries & I love that scent. The product is so creamy on the lips & is incredibly hydrating and leaves your lips feeling soft for hours. You hardly have to reapply this. This brand has a huge selection of flavours & I really need to get a couple more.

Chapstick Mixstix Lemon Berry Sorbet, I bought this whilst in San Francisco and it is a double-ended Chapstick with one end being a sweet lemon scent and the other a delicious berry scent. This smells so good and is good at keeping my lips feeling hydrated. I wish I’d bought a couple more as they are fun. They say you could mix the flavours but I like to keep the lemon & berry separate. 

Rajeunir Lip Serum – This is the first lip serum I have tried & I like it. You need such a small amount & I like to massage into my lips as well as on the skin around my mouth. It is quickly absorbed and non-greasy, it is also fragrance-free. It feels so nice on the lips & helps them look and feel smooth, moisturised and healthy. This serum also contains SPF15. I like to use this as a treatment twice a day, morning & night and think it does a good job at locking in moisture and protecting my lips from drying out.

Blistex Happy Lips

Blistex New Spring Happy Lips

I’m very much looking forward to Spring and everything that comes with this season. The lighter days & nights, warmer weather & all the new spring makeup, skincare & clothing.

So as I was daydreaming about Spring I was so excited to receive these Happy Lips* in the post last week. These are the new Spring Lip Balms from Blistex and now my lips think its Spring already, the weather just needs to catch up.

Blistex New Spring Happy Lips

So as I type, I am eating a few cheeky bonbons (which were in my package) & thinking about how fruity & fun these Happy Lips are. Perfect for Spring & popping in your handbag or if you’re going on a cheeky Spring break maybe your beach/pool bag. These new lip balms come in two scents

Mouth Watering Mango

This is my favourite of the two it smells like freshly ripe mango & makes me think of exotic holidays. Oh & this one just might happen to have my name on the packaging (easily pleased).

Simply Sensational Strawberry

This scent smells a lot sweeter than the Mango, it’s still fruity but I just think Strawberry is a really hard scent to achieve without it smelling a little too sweet. I think this one will appeal more to teens.

Blistex Spring Releases Blistex Happy Lips Spring

Both Happy Lips are intensively moisturising & contain Vitamin E to keep your lips looking smooth & feeling soft and hydrated. The formula isn’t greasy & they feel nice on the lips. The packaging is bright, fun & travel-friendly. These are the perfect affordable lip product to help beat the Winter Blues.

Just note that these lip balms do not contain SPF so be sun aware. But if you’re looking for a cute fruity hydrating lip balm this Spring make sure you check these out. The Mango one is already in my handbag & I will be using it a lot!

These new Spring Happy Lips are the latest addition to the Blistex range & the Mango & Strawberry are available as of January 26th in larger Boots Stores & online at 

Mango is also available from larger Tesco Stores.
