Mor Lip Macaroon*,  Nuxe Reve De Meil Lip Balm, Carmex Original*, Burts Bee's Lip Balm*, Carmex Lime Lip Balm
Mor Lip Macaroon: I was sent this a while ago and didn't think a whole much about it but then one day I opened it and holy-sweet-jesus IT SMELLS SO GOOD. Literally the nicest smelling lip balm I've ever tried.  Very sweet, almost sickly in scent but smells like an absolute dream. Although these are formulated with mineral oils and I dont think the price tag is justifiable, it just tastes/smells so darn good. They do a nice job of moisturising the lips but I don't think they do anything outstanding and you can get cheaper alternatives (Vaseline is very similar, just doesn't smell as nice!) on the market for much less.

Nuxe Reve De Meil Lip Balm: This has been on the blogger rounds for a while and I bought it a few weeks a go to give it a whirl. I absolutely adore everything about this from the scent, taste, texture and finish. It looks slightly matte on my lips rather than that balmy finish you get with most lip balms. It feels really nourishing and always leaves my lips feeling protected and smooth.

Carmex Original: Carmex always reminds me of my exex boyfriend for some reason but I cant help but love the original formula so much. It's a very love it or hate it type of taste, it's a bit medicinal and hospital-like if you get what I mean. I personally love it and the thick formula protects and hydrates chapped lips quickly and easily.

Burts  Bee's Lip Balm: This bee's wax based lip balm is a best seller, packed with loads of natural ingredients that work together to moisturise and hydrate even the driest of lips. They are 100% natural and contain no nasties!

Carmex Lime Lip Balm: Like the original flavoured carmex but with a lime twist ina  more hygencic tube formula. I am absolutely addicted to this lip balm since I tossed it in an ASOS order a while ago. It tastes really fresh and upflifting. Thick, waxy but balmy texture with a medicinal taste and lime undertone. Soothing and hydrating and makes me lips feel instantly better. This is also SPF 15 so offers some degree of sun protection.

  1. The Nuxe lip balm is my favourite when my lips are very chapped! It's kind of pricey but works well and lasts a long time :) I keep the Burt's Bees one in my purse, because it adds a little colour to the lips :) Great post!

  3. I love the Nuxe balm as well. My only complaint with it is that when the pot is cold I.e. in a cold room or in your handbag, the balm goes a bit stiff and can look a bit pastey on the lips. A good one for pre-bed lip pampering though!

  4. I'm such a lip balm addict, I've tried all but one of these! I love the NUXE lip balm, its probably my favourite ever and it really sticks around all day, but the Burts Bees is lovely to throw in your bag - it almost looks like lipgloss its so sheeny!

  12. Love the original carmex too so am keen to try the lime one! As you seem to be into smells and tastes of lip balms I would recommend the palmer dark chocolate and mint lip balm as it tastes amazing!

  23. I love Burts Bees lip balms! The mor macaroon one looks so lovely, it would have to be a one off treat every now and then though as it is quite pricey for a lip balm.

  24. I really want to try a Burt's Bees lip balm, the mango one is supposedly very good. Have you tried the Balmi lip balm (from Boots)? They're amazing! x

  29. really great post because i always struggle with dry lips yet never do anything about them! i do use vaseline but that's not really that interesting... i've seen a few reviews on the nuxe reve de miel lip balm and heard such wonderful things about it that i just NEED to get my hands on it! unfortunately i don't get along with burts bees products as they're just too minty that they almost hurt... i am, however, yet to try carmex even though it is extremely popular and famous for being brilliant on lips. the lime flavour sounds perfect for me as well as i love citrus flavours and scents! :) X

  30. I am so in love with the Nuxe lip balm it isn't even funny! I really like how matte it is, and how moisturizing it is without being sticky or having a strong scent.

  31. Definitely need to try the Nuxe one, never read a bad word! xx

  32. I really love Carmex, but I didn't realise they did it in a tube. Definitely think I need to get one of them! Sounds great.

    My favourite lip balm is the Korres ones, so moisturising.

  34. The Burt's Bees lip balms are lovely, sadly I seem to have misplaced my only one :( I have the NUXE Lip Balm and it's probably the best one I've ever used, it also feels really luxurious, I simply adore it.

  38. The carmex pot is my fave lip balm ever for effectiveness and I adore the medical smell! I bought the cherry version once and it just wasn't the same, I'm still convinced it didn't work as well! x
