Review: Baby Lips- Maybelline

Review: Baby Lips, Maybelline

Hi, I've been gone for so long I literally suck so bad at keeping this blog going omg.

Anyway, I was looking at my stats trying (and failing) to come up with an idea for a blog post and I decided that another review was in order. So here I am armed with lip balm.

I actually refused to buy Baby Lips for a good three weeks before I caved because I did not need another lip balm in my life. I have so many from Vaseline to Chapsticks to Burt's Bees and just thought "no, I am going to save my money. I. DO.NOT. NEED. THIS."

But then I was in Boots and I seen the Maybelline stand and I just couldn't resist any more, I had to try at least one of the Baby Lips products. These have been hyped about so much and honestly, I felt like I needed to see if the excitement was real.

I bought a 'Hydrate' one in 005- Quenched which is actually clear. I find a clear balm easier because I tend to apply them before I put on my lipstick or gloss and with it being colourless, I had no problem with my lip colour changing prior to applying my chosen lipstick. Anyway, I found this product very satisfying. I glides on so easily without being overly greasy or rough to the skin (sometimes I find the Burt's Bees lip balm can be like this) and it leaves a perky glow to the lips. The taste is very minimal but pleasant non the less and I found within a week of using this product that my lips are a lot smoother. I usually bite my lip frequently when I get nervous or anxious (aka. all the blumin' time) so I needed something that would repair the broken skin and this has been super great so far. 

This product is an absolute must for autumn and winter if you have problems with cracked lips. I apply it every morning and night without fail and it's became one of my essentials. 'Baby Lips' are relatively cheap, retail priced at around £2.99 (depending on where you buy it from) and can be purchased from any major drug store or online at the Maybelline website.

There are so many different colours and flavours and I can't wait to finish this little one to try more. Yippee!
