When I go abroad, especially Asia I love to see what the big mainstream brands have for the customers out there – for example, the major brands almost always have a whitening range that isn’t available for the European market.
Even high street brands have different ranges for the brand. I spotted this cheap and cheerful lip balm from Maybelline which I don’t think is out in the UK?
This is a natural lip balm with orange peel, and is supposed to heal the lips without being sticky.
I have a terrible terrible obsession with lip balms! I also lose them quite easily…I was clearing my desk at work and I had about EIGHT lip balms. Whoops!
Anyway – this Maybelline lip balm was just $5 from eBay – I wasn’t expecting much (my all time favourite balm is Sisley). But – it’s a really good lip balm!
It has my favourite texture for a lip balm – creamy and rich, not too much shine so that lipstick can go on top of it, and is very hydrating.
Ingredients list is decent too:
Provided I don’t end up losing this lip balm too, I will happily add it to my current rotation :D
Have you found any cheap and cheerful nice lip balms recently?
