10 Top Rated Lip Balms You Must Try
Dry lips or not this is one product we are always obsessing about. Yes ladies! I am talking about lip balms. The concept of lip balm as we know has definitely changed over the years. Lip balms are no more the boring, mildly scented petroleum jellies in tubes or tubs. Now they are available in an array of cute packaging, with huge options of flavors, colors and essence to choose from. They even come customized to suit the various lip conditions. So this makes it even more difficult for us to choose which lips balm to buy. Worry not folk! For here are a list of a few top rated lip balms you can try.
Nivea Fruity Shine Range Lip Balms
These delicious fruity flavored lip balms with Fruit Extracts and Shimmering pigments keep your lips really soft and fresh for long hours. They come in six different varieties, and the variants namely are Pink Guava, Watermelon, Pomegranate, Peach, Strawberry and Cherry. They are lightly pigmented and smell delicious. I am personally a huge fan of this range and you will always find one in my bag. They come at an affordable price range of Rs 135, and are easily available at all shopping malls. The pigmentation is very subtle and you can go on for a good 3-4 hours without a touch up.
Lakme Lip Love Lip Care Tinted Lip
This is one of the latest most raved about products from the renowned brand Lakme. These intensely moisturizing lip balms, hydrate your lips while adding a subtle hint of colour to it. It’s a dual core lip balm, where the creamy inner core content moisturizes your lips while the outer core provides your lips with that soft touch of colour. It also comes with a SPF15 protection. What more can you ask for. J These come in cute retractable bullets, and almost looks like a lipstick. They come at an affordable range of Rs200 for a 3.8g pack. The available variants of Lakme Lip Love are namely, Strawberry, Peach, Vanilla and Cherry.
Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm
Available in trendy retractable bullets. They come with a promise of keeping your lips moisturised “for a full 8 hours”. They come in variants namely: Quenched, Peppermint, Cherry me, Grape vine, Pink Punch, Peach Kiss, Rose Addict, Pink Lolita, etc. They glide over rather smoothly and feels like butter. They have a lovely fragrance to it, and some of them are mildly tinted. And yess they come with SPF as well. Surely a great buy for lip balm lovers.
Avon Naturals Lip Balms
Prized at Rs79 ( at least that’s what it was a few months ago) for a 4gms bullet, these are indeed pocket friendly lip balms. They come in variants like, Aloe, Grapefruit, Cherry, Lemon, Peach, Strawberry, Green Tea, and Almond& Milk. They smell really yummy and provide a sherry buttery cover to your lips. The Strawberry and the cherry are a little tinted. This range is a pretty good buy for school girls or even as a matter of fact for college girls who always live their lives on pocket money.
Vaseline Lip Therapy
Again, I have been a huge fan of this product. They used to come in retractable bullets, but now they have introduced these babies in tubs as well. The product is amazing, it’s super creamy, with a gloss that is not too overbearing and the unlike the basic Vasline lip balm, this is not at all flaky, or does not leave behind that white layer on your lips like many of us must have experienced with the basic variant. They have in them Almond oil, Pro-Vit-E and Petroleum jelly, all of which moisturizes your lips and protects them from drying. The variants namely are Rose, Cocoa Butter, Aloe Vera and Original. These are prized at Rs109 but if you buy them online, or know the dealer, you can get a few bucks off.
Fab India Lip Butter
Tried this one well! I happen to be a Fab India fan and most my skincare products are bought from there. Prized at a range of Rs150, the variants are namely Dew Plum, Fruity Vanilla and Plum Passion. The lip balms come in cute transparent jars of 10g. The balm when applied gives a smooth moisturized feeling without any shine or tint. The jars take ages to finish and cause of their packaging and everything it’s a great choice if you are planning to gift it to someone.
Lotus Herbals Lip Therapy
They keep your lips soft and hydrated and the best part is that they come with a SPF 15. Its available in jars as well as in retractable bullets. The Shea butter contained in these lip balms makes them a great therapy for badly chapped lips.The variants are: Velvety Rose, Vanilla, Chocolate, Cocoa, Fresh Mint and Cherry. Prized at Rs125, Lotus Herbals Lip Therapy lip balms are affordable and worthwhile.
