My All-Time Favourite Lip Balms

My All Time Favourite Lip Balms - Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask, Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Balm, Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Balm, By Terry Baume De Rose, Blistex Raspberry Lemonade Blast Lip Balm

I’m a bit of a lazy moisturiser – my collection of body butters, hand creams and lip balms grows at a scary rate but I’ve just never found myself getting into a routine. Lately, I’ve been trying to get back on board with lip balm – all day, every day – and my lips are thanking me for it. Although I have approximately a million hidden in handbags, drawers and in every room of my house, there are a few favourites that add hydration and comfort to my perpetually dry lips.

Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask –

When I first picked this one up in America I wasn’t completely prepared to give in to the hype but now this is holy grail material. It’s hella thick and you only need the tiniest bit to pump so much hydration into your lips and my favourite part is that it actually goes the distance – when I use this I don’t just notice an improvement for the first hour, my lips stay hydrated for days afterwards. This is particularly my favourite for night-time, just before I get into bed.

Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Aid with Lemon Oil – 

If a lip balm smells like lemonade, I’ll admit I’m pretty quick to jump on board. This is another one where you only need the tiniest bit to add shine and provide serious hydration. This one pretty much lives in my handbag now for touch ups on the go because it’s non-sticky and super easy to apply from the tube. On days where I can’t be bothered with a lip colour I just throw a bit of this on to look just a little bit more put together.

Carmex Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm* – 

I’ve heard a lot about Carmex in it’s various forms – tubes, jars and sticks – but my favourite form has to be the latter.  It’s lightweight, slightly tingly (but not in an uncomfortable way) and instantly leaves my lips feeling more comfortable. I also really love the peach and pink tinted versions that Carmex have released, a super easy way to add a little bit of subtle colour to the lips.

By Terry Baume De Rose Lip Balm –

Every time I use this tiny little sample jar of Baume de Rose I cry a little because damn, this stuff is expensive. To me, it smells like Turkish Delight (definite win) and although I find the jar a little finicky there’s no denying that this stuff is incredible. No matter how strong my resolve might be, every time I apply a little bit of this, it weakens just a tiny bit – maybe I can spend $90 on a lip balm?

Blistex Raspberry Lemonade Blast – 

On the compete opposite end of the price spectrum, we have the lip balm that I’ve raved about the most on TBC – maybe it’s because it smells like raspberry lemonade (again with the lemonade scents) or maybe just because for $4 you can get your hands on a no-fuss, hydrating wonder. Maybe it’s the throwback to the LipSmacker obsessions of my youyh but there’s something satisfying about using a plain old tube of lip balm and this one is definitely the most hydrating I’ve found in the drugstore.

    I love the Dior Creme De Rose, which basically seems identical to the By Terry one! I’m such a lazy moisturiser as well, that’s definitely going to bite me in the ass this winter though…

  • I love the Carmex balm! Really want to try the Bite mask, heard so many great reviews on it!

    The Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask is THE ONE. I have such bone dry lips that no other lip balms even make a dent in terms of hydration but slick this on before bedtime and voila, pillowy lips in the AM!

  • The Agave Lip Mask is my HG product! Between that & Lanolips’ 101 Ointment (the original), my lips are kept well moisturised. Love both of them, won’t be without them…or lip balm in general. My lips let me know when they require a top-up of moisture & believe me, it’s not pretty!

    I love Burt’s Bees Lip Balm…

  • Actually planning on uploading a lip balm post later this week! The Bite agave mask also makes an appearance 😉 Seriously loving it! Gah I don’t think I could ever spend $90 on a lip balm! Maybe I’ll just never try it so I won’t be tempted haha 😛

    • Yes girl, great minds think alike! hahah I definitely recommend staying away from the By Terry one because you will end up needing it in your life hahah

  • Great post, I love me a good lip balm the Lanolips are one of my all time favourites and the ones I reach for the most. I splurged on the By Terry Lip balm and love it so much as well as the Dior Creme de rose 🙂

    • Man, I want Dior Creme de Rose so badly, too! Totally don’t need it but it just looks so pretty!

      • I don’t think they sell it any more, I bought it in the US and loved it! I think they only come in the lipstick tube now…

  • Lanolips is definitely my life! I can’t use anything else now, it’s just too good x

  • I see so many of my faves in your post! You also have to try the Go-To Lips!

    • I’ve tried Go-To Lips before but my tube went a little weird :/ but when it was still normal it was such a good lip balm!

  • Can’t go wrong with Lanolips, really! I also love Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask for winter, and I just finished my tube of Dior Addict Lip Glow which I desperately want to replace but I should probably use up what I currently have.

    • I really haven’t reached for my Lip Glow enough, I’ll have to try it a little more because I’ve heard so many good things!
