Lip balm is an essential for nigh on the entire human race. Nobody, whether you're a burly builder or a princess want chapped, dry looking lips. And as the owner of rather full lips, I find when my lips aren't at their best it is incredibly noticeable. So when I heard the buzz about this new balm, Baby Lips from across the pond, I was excited for it to arrive on British shores to give this cheap and rather hyped product a whirl.
With 6 currently in the Baby Lips range in the UK, I thought I'd try out two, the Intense Care with SPF and the 'Cherry Me' tinted version (a girl can never have enough lip balm, you know?) The price is a modest £2.99, which I think is very reasonable, as someone willing to fork out for lip care. The packaging is super easy to work with, I sometimes find some lip balms let you twist up, but not down (as a child I never learned with Lip Smackers and ended up with a fuzzy mess) which is a gigantic pain, but these are clean and simple.

I can't get enough of products with SPF in, so I'm glad there are several in the range which do. I really do like the feel of the intensive balm on my lips, as well as the way it makes them look. When I use it, it makes them look super healthy and smooth (and dare I say it, kissable) and the 'rub your lips together' feeling does stick around for a long while. All of the balms claim to last and give moisture for 8 hours, and I think if you're not eating or drinking loads, then that is a fair statement to make with this one in particular!! The tint in 'Cherry Me' is quite a sheer one, but is still good for little make-up days if you just want to add a tiny something to your lips. I do like the moisture this one also adds to my lips, but I have noticed a difference in the amount of moisture I get from this one and the intense one, and I just feel if you're looking into this range for lip care, rather than lip colour, then hands down I think you should pick up the intense one. But equally if you're lips are in a fairly good condition, and you want something subtle for work or school, then I'd say this one is great too, it is all down to personal preference!!
Overall I like both of the Baby Lips that I bought, but if I were to pick one, I'd go with the Intense Care one! I just feel if I want to add a bit of colour to my lips, I can introduce that with another product, but still can have the longer lasting, more intense formula with SPF in!!
