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.

Oh So Cute! Disney Tsum Tsum Lip Smacker Lip Balm Collection

How many lip balms can anyone really use? - probably not that many, but how can you resist these cute Disney Tsum Tsum lip balms?  The suggested retail price is about $4.95 each, which is not bad until you realized that you can't just buy one and not the others.  I ended up walking out of the store with 4 super adorable lip balms, and $20 less in my wallet...but it's all worth it (I think) These lip balm pots are formulated to moisturize and leave a translucent shine on your lips.  They are also considered collectible items with 4 special edition flavors.  I don't know how long they will be available for purchase,  but I did find mine at a local Walgreens recently.  I'm pretty sure you can check out other major drugstores around your city, or visit Lip Smacker online to buy them.  I hope they will come out with more characters in the future. <3 Mickey: Marshmallow Pop Minnie: Strawberry Lollipop Winnie the Pooh: Honey Pot Stitch: Blueberry Wave

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
