My everyday lip balm

I love lip balms ♥ My lips need them, for they are perpetually dry, and I like to make sure they're soft each time my hubby kisses me. Heehee. Lipsticks, lip glosses, and other lip colors are also easier to apply and look better on lips that aren't chapped. Here's the lip balm that I've been using everyday:


Aromaleigh's Aromatherapy Lip Balm

Ingredients: Prunis dulcis Oil, Apis mellifera (Beeswax), Butyrospermun parkii (Shea) Butter, Theobroma cacao (Cocoa) Butter, Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, Limnanthes alba (Meadowfoam) Oil, Oenothers biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Persea americana (Avocado) Butter, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Rosa mosqueta (Rosehip) Oil, Aloe barbadensis (Aloe) Oil, Fragrance.

Available in 16 yummy scents too! I have Delicate Vanilla Bean, but I gotta say first, that it's not the scent which really made me love this- it's the texture! It just totally glides on my lips, it feels so creamy! Not at all waxy, or hard, like other lip balms I've tried. It's moisturizing, and doesn't feel greasy or heavy on my lips. I especially like to use this when I wake up in the morning, and right before I go to bed at night. Definitely keeps my lips soft. I think this'd be great for sensitive lips too.

Regarding the scent, it's quite faint, which is just fine by me. It's a warm scent, which to me smells a bit like nuts, and maybe a hint of vanilla. I know I've blogged before about finding my HG lip balm, but the scent of that lip balm, though okay with me, bothered hubby and even my sister. Aromaleigh's does smell nicer, and works just as well. There's no taste to it either, which is just what I prefer.

The Aromaleigh Aromatherapy Lip Balm can be ordered online at the Aromaleigh website, for only $4.85, BUT it's currently included in their weekly sale and right now is at 25% off, priced $3.64. Just check the site for more info, but let me tell you before you click that link, if you like pigments, mmu, or color, there's gonna be loads of goodies there for you!
