As soon as I discovered beauty bloggers, I immediately learned about many tools that are not represented on the Russian market. Most often, these three beauties were mentioned as the best lip balms – EOS testicle and medicinal Carmex and Blistex.
Balsams from Carmex and Blistex come in other variants – sticks, tubes, fudge, and EOS have different tastes.
The first in my beautician appeared famous Carmex.
Carmex Cherry SPF 15
Cherry Carmex with sun protection factor is packed in a bright yellow tuba with a red cap, behind which a round nose is hidden. The balsam itself is a transparent color with a specific smell and taste, I can not describe what it looks like.
Carmex is not sticky, does not give shine, something between ointment and hygienic lipstick. They say that it can not be used continuously throughout the day, because it’s healing, so I use it exclusively for the night.
Very quickly restores the most dead lips. I can not imagine the winter without him. Before using, I scrub my lips a little (with honey or a toothbrush), then apply this balm.
The price is about 150 rubles with delivery (and in foreign stores about $ 2).
Blistex Lip Medex
This balm is hidden in a round blue jar with a screw cap. Blistex has a specific odor, menthol is felt. A little cool lips when applied.
The color is yellowish, like Carmex, more like ointment. Excellent soothes and moisturizes lips. I also use it exclusively for the night.
Price about 2 dollars without shipping. I alternate it with Carmex when the first one gets bored.
EOS Lemon Drop SPF 15
This friend is closer to the traditional hygienic lipstick. Although, of course, one of his appearance suggests otherwise. Round egg, and inside the exact same form of balm. At first I thought it would be inconvenient, but I was mistaken.
It is his trinity that I carry with me in my purse and use it during the day. I must say, he always attracts attention, because in our city few people follow the cosmetic market of other countries – and nobody has ever seen such a round balm.
EOS, in addition to design, is also unique in its composition. It is 95% organic and 100% natural, does not contain parabens and mineral oils.
The packaging is pleasant to the touch, as if rubberized, but at the same time it is very similar to plastic. However, if in a purse a mess, it can get dirty and lose a neat look.
My lemon balm, the smell for me is very pleasant, delicate aroma of lemon with vanilla. Hard enough, it melts from the heat of the lips. It does not give shine, transparent. The taste came down sweet (although maybe it seems to me).
It is not very fat, so I think it will not work for dead lips, but for the summer (especially with SPF) or for prevention – just right.
The most expensive of all, about 6-7 dollars without delivery.
With all these balms, my lips feel good. I have been using it for about a year, not one of them has finished yet. I can not choose one thing, because yet they are a little different.
As a sos-remedy, Carmex or Blistex will suit for the night, and EOS for the day.
The only minus of all three is that they need to be ordered from online stores, although I heard that Carmex and EOS were sold in Moscow.
