It’s not often I get excited by a lip balm – how special can they be?! But after raving success in the States and much anticipation for the UK launch, I assumed these must offer something different. The balms come in six scents with passion fruit, cherry and peach offering a very subtle hint of colour whilst lemon basil, mint and cherry serve just as a nourishing balm with SPF20.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on lemon basil; not the smell combination that tends to appeal to me but the basil was subtle so it was more of a refreshing lemon zing. All six balms are a sort of mix between a cream and gel which I found incredibly moisturising; as always the whole ‘eight hour hydration’ thing is a bit of a stretch but I didn’t have to reapply often, and I loved the non-greasy formula. I will definitely be making the Baby Lips a daily staple – my lips really did look and feel softer than with my usual lip products. As a no make-up kind of girl, I don’t usually like colour in my lip balms and I always look for the inclusion of SPF, so these are ideal for me. Most of all I think I love the price – they’re only £2.99 each!
