We all know that finding a good lip balm that actually moisturises your lips can be difficult. So here are 3 of my favourites that also won't break the bank.
First things first, in order for you to make the most out of your lip balm you need to have a good lip scrub to get off all of the chapped skin.
The ELF lip scrub is amazing at removing chapped skin and will leave your lips nice smooth. It's vegan and cruelty-free too.
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Original Ultra Moisturizing Lip Balm
If your lips need a more heavy-duty lip balm then this is the one for you.
The Palmer's Cocoa Butter balm gives an intense burst of moisture that lasts for a few hours.
It smells amazing and the packaging makes it easy to just throw it in your handbag or pocket for everyday use.
Palmer's Cocoa Butter balm is a steal, retailing for just €2.79, and it lasted me about 4-5 months with daily-use multiple times a day.
Dr Paw Paw Original Balm
The Dr Paw Paw lip balm is my current favourite, I've been using it for the last year now and I've gone through about 3 tubes.
It's a multi-purpose balm so it can be used for lips, skin, hair and nails.
It feels very soothing on the lips and a little goes a long way, it also lasts for a few hours so you don't have to worry about constantly re-applying it.
Dr Paw Paw is available in select pharmacies nationwide or on Cloud10Beauty for €7.95.
Although it's the most expensive of the three lip balms, it's multi-functional so you definitely get value for money.
I love using it to moisturise my hands and to tame my hair if it gets frizzy during the day.
Carmex Lip Balm
Carmex is a classic and a holy grail lip product for many.
It comes in three different types of packaging which means there's one to suit everyone.
Carmex has a slight tingly feeling on the lips but it works very well during harsh Irish winters.
Like the other two balms, it lasts a few hours on the lips so there's no need to constantly re-apply.
Carmex is available in Boots for €2.99.
