Today I am reviewing three e.l.f. Studio Conditioning Lip Balms(£4.50, Rs437.83) which I got last year while I was in UK. Last year I did huge e.l.f. haul but have not got chace to review them on blog. So finally today I am starting with Conditioning Lip Balms. When I opened my package from e.l.f., I was totally surprised how big these lip balms were. You get a lot of product in these containers! You get about 0.26 oz./7.5g. I got three shades Peaceful Pink, Blissful Berry and Mellow Melon. With the e.l.f. Studio Conditioning Lip Balm, your lips get treated to a sheer splash of color that’s super smooth, velvety soft and non-sticky. Not only are these sheer, natural shades beautiful, they’re also beneficial, with natural ingredients that condition dry, chapped lips including Vitamins A & E. It also has SPF 15 to protect delicate lips against harmful sun damage.
e.l.f. Studio Conditioning Lip Balm comes in a large glass like plastic pot. I find packaging attractive and very strong. But for application on lips one has to dip fingers to get the product out which is unhygienic and it makes it a little less travel friendly. I apply it with my index finger for even application and opaqueness. Sometimes I use lip brush too. These balms are about twice the size of a traditional lip balm size. These have a small plastic covering over the rim of the lid after opening the main topper. I think it is included so the product would remain fresh.
It has creamy, thicker and moisturising consistency. It feels lightweight on lips though. It has mix of vanilla and coconuty scent which is not overpowering. For a tinted lip conditioner I would say this is quite pigmented and it leaves behind a nice pop of color. The formula wears well on my lips and feels hydrating and quite smooth. It adds nice shine to the lips too. All the three lip balms last about 2-4 hours depending on drinking and eating.
Peaceful Pink is a creamy bubble gum warm pink. It does not have any shimmer, pearl or frost. I really did not expect this product to have much pigment for a tinted lip conditioner. With one swipe, it gives a really natural pink flush to the lips. It is build-able for a pinker look. Peaceful Pink would look good on any skin tone.
Blissful Berry is warm rosy berry shade. It is sheer shade but gives very good colour pay off. If you want darker shade jusy keep layering it. Blissful Berry compliments my lips really well.
Mellow Melon is slightly more on coral shade. It is warm and instantly gives my lips life and a healthy appearance when I put it on.
Overall they are quality budget friendly tinted lip balms, so moisturisng and nourishing. It also has SPF15 to protect our lips from harmful UV rays. I have more reviews coming up on e.l.f. products so keep watching this space. You can buy e.l.f. products directly from their website. If you are staying in India you can buy e.l.f. cosmetics from Amazon, iherb.
Today I am reviewing Lavera Basis Sensitive Organic Lip Balm-£3.45 which I have been sent very kindly to review on my blog. In my previous posts I have reviewed Lavera’s newly launched Coconut and Vanilla Exotic Body Wash and Body Lotion which you can find here. This organic lip balm is one of the best-selling products in the Basis Sensitive range. It is infused with organic jojoba and organic shea butter effectively moisturises delicate and sensitive lips. It is very ideal for winter season when lips are more likely to become dry and cracked.
The packaging is quite refreshing, it is in stick form to unscrew. The colour of the balm is yellowish, odorless and tasteless. This lip balm is very rich and it stays on lip for quite long so you don’t have to reload lip balm again and again on your lips. It is very moisturising and hydrating. I have been using it everyday since I received and it makes my lips super soft and pinky. It leaves slightly creamy gloss on lips and your lips are soft, healthy and smoochy. This lip balm is not sticky at all and sits nicely on lips. I use it as a base before I apply lipstick or lip gloss which makes a huge difference it allows lipstick to glide smoothly. I am also using it before going to bed. It is very hydrating and perfect for drier lips that really need shot of moisture.
Overall it is really good lip balm to try and specially if you have dry chapped lips worth to check this out. You can buy Lavera Basis Sensitive Organic Lip Balm from Naturisimo, Pravera and Holland & Barrett
Today I am going to review Oriflame The One BB Lip Balm which I have been sent very kindly to review on my blog. As you may know how much I love lip balms. Lip balm as we know is a waxy substance applied on the lips to keep them from chapping, by moisturizing them. This lip balm claims that it does sooth and protect lips, give long-lasting hydration for up to 24H. It is infused with wheat germ oil and aloe vera for complete lip nourishment and protection. It helps to reduce appearance of rough chapped lips and fine lines associated with dryness.
Packaging of this lip balm is most classier. The white casing looks really chic and classy. I like how it looks like lipstick and sturdy packaging. It is more hygienic than potted lip balms, where we have to dip our finger in. It smells really good. It has quite soft and creamy texture. It has pearlescent particles in it which gives a little volume to lips. The minute shimmers in it are not overpowering at all. The lip balm is in peachy colour but it applies almost clear with very subtle peach undertone.
It glides smoothly on lips. The fine creamy texture of this lip balm helps to keep my lips soft and moisture. The staying power of this lip balm is average. Like after eating and drinking I have to re-apply it. I can not comment on if it gives 24H long-lasting hydration if applied ones, As I have to apply it couple of times in between to keep my lips moisturised. But yes this lip balm is really hydrating and It gives lips smooth, rich and glossy effect. This lip balm is not sticky at all and sits nicely on lips.
Overall it is good lip balm but I don’t find anything special about this lip balm as it does normal job like other lip balm does. It retails for only £4.95 so at this price point nothing can go wrong. Have you tried Oriflame The One BB Lip Balm? What do you think about Oriflame The One BB Lip Balm?

The very first time when I opened the balm amazing aroma of Spearmint and Tea Tree made me feel like WOW what a scent! It is a multi-purpose balm. You can use it on your nails for strength and growth, on lips to smooth or soothe, on hands to enrich and protect them from elements, on dry skin to moisturise and also on feet and heels. I have been using it on my lips and nails. It keeps my lips hydrated and kissable! The scent is bit strong but delicious and it does lose its potent minty smell over time.
I also use it on my nails for strength and growth, it makes them look shiny and healthy. I also apply it on my cuticles to hydrate and push them back. This is a really great balm to use during winters and also perfect for those with dry and sensitive skin. The consistency is very thick and melts on my skin and lips as soon as you start rubbing it.

Today I am again going to review two more Lip Smacker’s Lip Balms one from Disney Frozen Collection Strawberry Shake and one from Disney Cinderella and Friends Collection Cindrella Vanilla Sparkle. These lip balms I have been sent very kindly to try and review on my blog. In my previous post I have reviewed Lip Smacker’s Coca Cola Collection and I just loved it so much. Lip Smacker’s Disney collection is really beautiful. I am very big fan of Disney movies and characters. I have been to Paris Disneyland 3 times and I really enjoy lot there! Meeting with characters in Disneyland is the most loving and fun part of my Paris Trip each time. I have seen most of all Disney movies in cinemas. I just love it.
The Frozen Collection has 6 lip balms Olof (coconut snowballs,) Sven (Berry Slush,) Anna (strawberry shake,) Kristoff (ice pop,) Elsa (cool vanilla mint) and an Elsa-Anna combo (chilled cranberry grape). Strawberry Shake really smells delicious. This lip balm is transparent and glides smoothly on lips. It is very light on lips and not sticky at all. It makes my lips soft and smooth. It is not super hydrating. This lip balm stick is in pink color but it does apply on lips clear. It is not tinted lip balm.
I am loving this Cinderella Vanilla Sparkle Lip Gloss Balm so much. When I apply it, it glides on smoothly on lips, leaves a glossy glittery shine with a slight blue tone on lips and then apply it heavily and this definitely leaves quite a blue tone to the lips with a super glittery glossy look. The glitters in this lip balm are not overpowering. This lip balm is Vanilla scented and it really smells like Vanilla. This lip balm really moisturising and soft and leaves lips sparkly and glossy. This lip balm is more hydrating than other Lip Smacker’s lip balms I have tried and stays bit longer on lips.
I am a Disney lover and I love the cute packaging of this lip balms and think they would be ideal for stocking fillers for any Disney lovers. These lip smackers are really affordable too retailing at £2.49 each and the Lip Balm tin £10.00 and exclusively available in Claire’s Accessories Online, Debenhams Online and Primark. Are you a Disney fan?
