Whenever the weather picks up in the summer, I’m quick to down-size my makeup routine. My lip glosses are relegated to my storage containers, and I dig out my favorite balms. I always think it looks and feels so much better in the heat to have a subtle glow rather than full-on-sticky glosses. Recently, I’ve been reaching for my newest two balms which come courtesy of Bomb Cosmetics. They come in the cutest little pink pots, and they smell delicious – just like candy. Whenever my lips are feeling a little parched, a quick slick of the balm really works to hydrate and smooth, and the scents are just so fun!
What I also love is how affordable they are – they only cost £2.49 each, which means with such delicious flavors you don’t even need to choose!
The balms are available here.
I don’t think there is anything else in the world which annoys me as much as having dry lips does. I’m not really sure why, but it’s just the most uncomfortable feeling! Thankfully, Bomb Cosmetics has made it ridiculously easy, and most importantly, yummy to make your lips completely kissable!
First up is the Sherbet Lemon Lip Scrub – a little pot I usually turn to in the evenings, after I’ve cleansed my face.
The formula feels like a light balm, and you can feel the sugar particles which slough away any icky dry and dead skin and the balm stops your lips feeling dry. It also doesn’t hurt that this stuff smells amazing, seriously all of your wild lemonade fantasies don’t compete with how good it smells!
Once my lips are silky-smooth thanks to the Lemon Scrub, I move onto the Coconut Lip Treatment. In a word, it’s dreamy.
Like the scrub, this has the most divine scent, and it smells like summer thanks to the coconut. A quick swipe over my lips leaves everything soft and smooth, and it also tastes yummy too!
Both treatments cost (a teeny tiny) £2.49 and are available here.
The weather in the UK has been super crazy over the past week or so, and because of this my skin has been super dry thanks to the heating which has been on 24-7. To keep dry skin at bay, I’ve been turning to Lotil for products which are just the most nourishing and lovely products out there! (more…)
So it’s meant to get super chilly this weekend. (We can thank the end of the polar vortex for that) so to stop chapped lips in their tracks, I’m going to be reaching for Willow Organic Beauty’s Luxury Lipbalm. (more…)
For some odd reason my lips have been getting really dry recently, I suppose it’s January’s wind and chill which are to blame, but I can’t stand the feeling. To combat any dryness or peeling, I’ve been turning to Dr. Lipp’s Original Nipple Balm for Lips. (more…)
I do love a good nude lipgloss, and apparently so does Aerin Lauder. (more…)
Ooooh, it’s getting rather close to the big day. The tree is up, carols are on, and (almost) all my presents are wrapped up. No matter how organised I try to be, there is always someone I need to get an extra little something. Solution – Burt’s Bees Head to Toe Kit which I managed to pick up in Waitrose when getting some cupboard staples.
It’s really getting quite chilly outside, which means the heating is being cranked up indoors too. This means my skin can get horribly dry.
Since it’s getting chilly, I’m finding I need lip formulas which are more nourishing than a gloss, but then I miss the glossiness. Solution? Bliss’ Fabulips Glossy Balm. (more…)
When you think about what constitutes a winter makeup collection, Clarins’ 2013 offering is completely on point. (more…)
