1390105969_500mi-hqa213022zp81771Malin-Goetz Mojito Lip balm ($12)– I just received this in my Ipsy Glam bag (review coming soon) and I love it! Give me a Mojito and I’m happy! Not only does this taste good, but it has just the right texture–not too thick or thin and it glides on.
1390105784_lip-gallery-best-07Rosebud Perfume Co. Minted Rose Lip Balm (7)- not just for lips, this balm can be used on elbows, knees and minor burns too!
1390104934_03766LUSH Popcorn ($9.95) – Sugar and fine sea salt exfoliate away dry skin while jojoba and coconut oils restore essential hydration to the lips for a smooth, softened pout. I think this tastes just like Kettle Corn so try not to eat it!
1390104392_s683847-main-gridFRESH Sugar Lip Treatment ($22.50) – Available in 7 shades, nothing beats the original for me. With an SPF of 15, this lip balm melts into your lips and has a lovely citrus smell. Probably the smoothest balm I’ve ever used.
1390104302_l_rv-1012Reviva Labs Vitamin E Oil Stick ($3.79)– I have one of these in my purse, my nightstand and my desk drawer. At only $4 a pop I can afford to! Made with a beeswax base with soy, Vitamin E and allantoin, it conditions lips beautifully. It’s also great for cuticles and even under the eyes!
1390103819_ybf_skincare_lipQuench by YBF ($15)- it’s super velvetly feel and antioxidant blend makes Quench a real winner! I love the minty taste and smell too-it’s light enough not to sting.
1390103675_image_1_lemon_drop_open_rev_22eos Smooth Sphere Lip Balm ($3.29) – originally I thought these were cute and we all know I’m a sucker for packaging so…. The lemon flavor is addicting and this is the only flavor with SPF. I like the super lightweight feel on my lips too.
1390103567_moisture-plus-adventurous-large-1Carmex Moisture Plus ($2.99) – the latest version comes in 4 fun prints designed to match your personality. I like to use this at bedtime so I have soft lips when I wake up in the morning.

  1. I need to try the LUSH Popcorn one! We are getting a LUSH in Iowa very soon, I can’t wait!

  2. Great picks! I am a big EOS fan myself 🙂

  3. I love the LUSH Lip Scrubs but the Popcorn one has me hesitant to buy haha I don’t like the smell of popcorn BUT I do love Kettle Corn. I’ll have to give it a sniff in the store next time I’m in

  4. Wait a second! Lip balm that tastes like kettle corn? Oh, baby! Yes! Yes! Yes! (I like popcorn. Just a little bit.) I don’t get the allure of EOS lip balms, I find then horribly drying. They do smell and taste and yummy, tho. 🙂

  5. I have both Reviva Labs Vitamin E and YBF Quench on my longer list but decided to cut it down. Too bad since they are great. If I hadn’t used up my Lush Popcorn it might have made the list.

  6. I love minty quench, too! I should have included it in my post. 🙂 I also swear by LUSH’s lip scrubs. So good!

  7. I really need to try that Lush Lip Scrub!

  8. I need to get the LUSH scrub!!!!

  9. We have a couple of the same favs! 🙂 I TOTALLY should have mentioned the Reviva Labs Vitamin E Oil stick! One of my favorites. But I tend to use that one all over, so it didn’t stick out as a lips item. I use it on burns and all kinds of other stuff.
