my 2nd obsession….lip care products

Hey everyone,

today I have a different kind of post for you again.

Event though I am addicted to nail polish, it is not my only obsession. Today I want to introduce you two my 2nd obsession – lip care products.

I have tried many lip care products, from normal Labello, Blistex to Baby Lips and several others in different price ranges.
Here are a few and what I personally think of them.

Regina Lip balm

I am not sure anymore where I bought this, maybe at Rossmann or the Pharmacy? I don’t remember, but what I do know is that I am not really happy with this. It is similar to Labello, which is only greasing but not moisturizing at all.

I would not buy this again.

Labello Milk & Honey

The only Labello product I use. You won’t be able to get it at any drugstore, somehow I can only get it at my local Kaufland.
I just love the Milk & Honey flavor and smell. I am a sucker for anything honey. I bought some of these as stock for myself, just in case I run out of my favorite lip care product, which I will review later on.

Balea Lip care with Urea

I bought this when my lips where chapped and dry during the winter but I must honestly say I would not buy this again.
I just don’t like how this is more a cream then a balm. Also you always have a white layer of products on your lips since this is difficult to apply the right amount of product.

Here are 2 products I bought in Japan, one is peach, the other strawberry flavor. I only tried the peach flavored one so far but I can say I am not a big fan of it. The smell is too intense and gives me headache haha
I wouldn’t  buy this again, maybe that’s why I haven’t used the strawberry one yet.

Bee Natural

I thought this would be a dupe to the Burt’s Bees lip care products, ohhhh was I wrong.
They are different as day and night. I tried this lip balm but I don’t really like it.

The Body Shop – Honey Mania lip balm

I like this lip balm for at home and using before I go to bed, but not for outside when I am on the way to work or wherever.

The product itself is good, even though the smell of it can be annoying after a while. And the thing I dislike the most is the packaging. It is really annoying always having to stick your finger in it to apply the product. Not very hygienic.
Also with a price of over 5 euro it is quite expensive.

My two most favorite lip care products:

 

Nivea Deep Moisture – Honey and Milk lip balm (Japan only)

oh god I love this product! It promises deep moisture and it really does offer deep moisture! The smell is just right which makes it perfect. The only sad thing, it is not available in Germany, so I always have to buy a few of them while in Japan.

Burt’s Bees!

Yes, it is true! This is the best lip care product I have ever tried. I was checking on the net and all people said the same thing, this is IT if you want a great lip care product. And they were all right. I gave the Burt’s Bees lip balms a try and I must say I can’t go a day without anymore.

My favorite is the one with the orange/brown-ish cap, which is the Honey Lip Balm.

Here in Germany they are a bit more expensive (around 4 euro), which is why I bought a few of them when I was in New York in January. I simply love these. CVS pharmacy offered set’s of them for a smaller price. For example 4 of the Burt’s Bees – Beeswax which is supposed to be moisturizing and cooling, which is because it contains peppermint^^

While researching on the net I saw Target offers them as well, for only 9,99 dollar.

My favorite is available at Douglas here in Germany for around 4 euro.

Seriously, if there is one product I would recommend to any person in the world, nonetheless if female or male, it is Burt’s Bees Lip Care. They have tastes and smells for every liking.

 

Which products do you use? Any recommendations on Burt’s Bees products? I heard that their cuticle cream is awesome as well.
That will probably the next product I will try out.

Have a great Saturday
