My Favorite Lip Balms

Since I tend to have really chapped lips, I'm always seeking products that will help to hydrate and nourish them.   If the packaging is cute or if it says "limited edition" on it, then that's another plus, and I'm all for it! Thankfully most of these items can be found at the local drugstores or retail chain stores---so they are affordable! Here are some of the products that I really love.

 

1) For really dry lips, I recommend Blistex Lip Medex.  I've tried many different lip balms already, and I personally love this one the most.  It's inexpensive and it's easy to find.  It should be available at any local drugstores or retail chain stores (Walgreens, Target, Walmart...etc) for under $2.  Not the cutest bottle, but it works!  I like to apply it to my lips during the day or before I get dressed to go out.   By the time I'm finished with everything, my lips are much softer and ready for putting on lipstick.

2) I also like EOS (Evolution of Smooth) sphere lip balm.  It's a hydrating lip balm in a very cute egg-like container.  There are many different natural flavors to choose from, and they do have limited edition flavors available for different seasons. The yellow one "lemon drop" is an SPF 15 lip balm, great for protecting your lips from the sun.  These are also available at most local drugstores or retail chain stores for $3-4 each. 

3) ChapStick is another reliable brand of lip balm that I like to buy.  I haven't tried these candy cane flavor lip balm yet, but I heard they smell really nice and that they are only available during the holidays, so I picked them up.  I think the cost was about $3-4 for the kit (there are three sticks inside)  If you like candy cane flavor, then you must look for them next time when they come around again.

4) If you're willing to spend a little more money on lip treatment, I would definitely recommend Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment with SPF 15.  There are many different tints you can choose from, and they also have a clear one.  I personally love using the tinted one, in the color rose.  My lips are pretty pigmented, color usually don't show up when I use tinted lip balm, but this one does.  You can find them at most specialty beauty stores or at the department stores for about $23 each.

Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color (7R Raspberry Red) Review

I've been looking forward to getting my hair colored and it finally happened, thanks to a couple of lovely family members that helped me out!  Sorry it took me a while to review the Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color, but I just got it done yesterday and here's what I think about it.   I normally get my hair colored at the Salon, but this time I decided to do it myself (well, I didn't get it all done entirely by myself...but mainly because I wanted an even coating all around so I decided to ask for some assistance.) I think the Hello Bubble Foam Color is actually quite convenient and easy to handle even by yourself,  if you don't care about sectioning your hair into smaller bunches.  Treat it like you are shampooing your hair, and it will probably come out alright.  Before you start dying your hair, I would recommend applying a bit of vaseline or baby oil around your hairline and on your ears as well, so that your skin won't get stained if yo

Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color (7P Vintage Rose Pink) Review

At the end of 2014, I wanted to change my hair color, but I didn't have anything specific in mind.  I went to the local drugstores in my area and looked at a lot of colors and read their ingredients--and I went home feeling uninspired by all of it.  So I thought, maybe I should just dye my hair the same raspberry red from Hello Bubble as I did before.   I went online to shop for it, and that led me to the new color called 7P Vintage Rose Pink. I knew instantly that was the color I wanted to try!  I had a great experience with this brand the first time when I used it ( Check Out My Previous Post For 7R Raspberry Red ), so I wasn't worried about the formula, but more about how and if the color would turn out on my hair.   Once again, Hello Bubble Foam Color did not disappoint me! I loved it!  Why I like the Formula :  I've mentioned in my previous post that I really like the foam formula.  It's non-drippy, and extra easy to apply by yourself (this time I re

Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color (7N Mocha Latte) Review

Oh my gosh, I think this is my favorite Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color so far.  The last couple of times that I decided to dye my hair, I went with the redder shades, they came out nice, but harder to see under certain lighting. For this coming fall/autumn, I decided to go brown. I bought the Hello Bubble Foam Color in 7N Mocha Latte which came in the new "Girl's Day" packaging-I'm actually not sure who they are, but I'm guessing they are a K-pop group. This product is definitely one of my all time favorite! This box came with all the usual Hello Bubble Foam Color components; it included the hair colorant, a hair coloring cape/cover, a pair of gloves, and a small packet of conditioner (I prefer to use my own). From looking at the before and after photos on the box, I did not expect the color to be very noticeable on my hair.  The color itself seemed a little too dark to have any effect on my already dark hair.   To my surprise, this color gave me the
