Lip balms! Just saying it already makes me happy – saviour-like waxy substance that relieves us of chapped or dry lips, and even cold sores. Something every woman must have in their makeup bag (or stuffed in one of ‘em little compartments in a handbag, like what I do). Personally, I have three just “hanging around” in my bag.
These magic sticks contain ingredients such as beeswax or petroleum jelly to prevent moisture loss and maintain lip comfort. Most lip balms are usually available off the shelf at your nearest pharmacy. But these days, lip calms come with all sorts of “added features” such as flavorants, colourants, suncreens, and medicaments. Interesting!
I’ve narrowed down some unique ones that I found online while I was aimlessly surfing (read: online shopping) on the Internet today. Too good to not share ‘em!
1. Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Lip Balm
Not-so-sinful treats that stay on your lips and not on your hips! Who knows when you have to have some of that dessert, right? It’s available for USD4.71 (RM13) from here.
2. Reese’s Pieces Lip Balm
My personal favourite! Chocolate? Check. Peanut Butter? Check. No need to count fat and calorie content? Check! I think I could use this forever, once I’ve stocked up enough to last me a lifetime. Already buying it for USD3.93 (RM11) from here.
3. Coca Cola (Classic & Vanilla) Lip Balms
I don’t know about you but I’m all for caramel-tasting, sugary lips. If you think that the drink is refreshingly smooth and sweet, then add that to the equation of it being in lip balm form. Go here to purchase one (or two) for £2.55 (RM12).
4. Pop Secret Lip Balm
Confession: I have a massive problem with finishing my popcorn while watching the trailers before a movie starts. So this could just be the next best thing to curbing my bad habit. Want one? Go get one to butter up your lips, make it all nice and supple for USD1.91 (RM5.50) from here.
5. Rainbow Nerds Lip Balm
Candy, candy, can’t get enough of candy. What more the ones that come in happy, rainbow colours. One thing to note though, this lip balm features a heart-shaped moisture center. Can you say, “sweet”? Make it yours for USD1.91 (RM5.50) from here.
Want more more unique and unusual lip balms that work? You got it! Don’t say I didn’t share. However, I’m just wondering, will they ever manufacture one that’s champagne-flavoured?
