Current Favorite Lip Balms ~ EOS, Bourjois, The Face Shop

According to 'Lip Balm Anonymous' , lip balm is addictive. I totally agree.
Would I ever want to go cold turkey? 
Hell, no! Why would anyone wanna do that?! =)
And with these in the world......

Summer Fruit & Honeysuckle Honeydew 
EOS Lip Balms ($19.50 for both)~ These lip balms are 100% natural, 95% organic, paraben and petrolatum free. Packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil.

You know I'm a sucker for cute packaging. These are some of these cutest things ever! (They remind me of Easter eggs and litchi =) ) Plus, they do moisturize my lips very well and don't wear off quickly. I like that the texture is almost matte and doesn't make my lips look glossy, which makes it easier for me to put a lippie on top. I'd say both flavors are equally nice and will definitely get Sweet Mint and Lemon Drop too later.


Bourjois Baume De Nuit Night Lip Balm (Rs.420)~ What it is: Your night time prescription-a tinted lip balm which restores lips while you sleep. The formula moisturizes and restores lips all night long, filled with emollient oils & repairing agents. The creamy texture makes your lips look visibly repaired and nourished in the morning. Let your night time treatment work while you sleep!
This is my favorite lip balm. It doesn't look fancy, but it delivers. Somewhat like a not-so-attractive or glamorous-looking hairstylist, who always does a better job at doing your hair than the other glam hairstylist with the perfect locks and trendy outfit.
 It was the only thing that helped when nothing else seemed to work. It has an unmistakable extra virgin olive oil smell which doesn't bother me. I will have to stock up on these because Bourjois seem to discontinue a lot of their products without prior notice. I do prefer this lip balm to the Body Shop Lip butters.
The question in my head is, why that 'meh' blue packaging?! Don't you think pink (or even peach) would've suited it more? 


The Face Shop Fresh Lip Balm RD 301~  Mouth watering fruit scented and flavored lip balm softens and comforts your lips with natural fruit extracts, vitamin E and jojoba oil. Has a sweet cherry scent.
*Sob* it's almost over and it won't be easy for me to get a new one! I like grabbing for this whenever I want some deliciousness (which has nothing to do with food!) on my mouth. It's almost always in my handbag because it's a good substitute for lipgloss and lipstick. I like it a tad more than the Body Shop Born Lippy lip balms. And it's also a man magnet *wink*
