Cheap affordable lip product. Leaves your skin soft and supple. I like to wear it at night after my I've done my skincare routine and in the morning my lips look luscious. This is available at your local drugstore or any Walmart.

i like the lip balm because it makes my lips super soft and it smells very nice from the pot however when you first apply it onto your lips it is quite spicy and wouldn't be recommended for children under 3 for safety in case they rub it in their eyes or something.

Carmel is my go to lip balm. Super my moisturises my lipsvwitgout being over dramatic. I used to suffer badly with cracked lips (especially in the winter) but now my lips are always super soft. Don't know how many tins I've been through in the last 8 years. Highly recommend.

Really nice and hydrating lip balm. Soothes sore lips, easy to apply. The packaging is nice and handy. I brought it from my local Boots. It is a slightly pricier lip balm but I would repurchase it again because it works really well.

It's the absolute best lip balm every tested.
It makes the lips very mosturised and it tinkles a little bit but that's what makes them vey fresh.
Plus if i whore it at night time, it does a nice peeling and removes dead skin from the lips.
I highly recommand carmex lip balm.

Perfect for keeping lips hydrated and for soothing chapped lips, although being in a metal tin can cause the balm to get warm very easily. This makes the balm melt and it can get quite messy. I would recommend to others but maybe opt for the plastic tube container instead.

Absolute classic. My go to if my lips are in drastic need of help because it is SO good. My lips were in an awful state and I brushed them and applied this over night and I woke up with gorgeous, soft lips. I keep my lips smooth with this product and always come back to it.

This is such a good lip balm and it's also very affordable. It leaves my lips nice and hydrated and it gets rid of any dry patches that my lips might have. I would definitely recommend it to anyone that's looking for a good lip balm.
