The Five Top Hot Lip Balms

I am rarely without a lip balm.  If I find myself sans balm it's enough to induce a feeling of mild panic!  I have tried so many different balms; some are too sticky, others not moisturising enough.  The best will nourish and give a light gloss and some even have an in-built tint, killing two birds with one stone.  Anyway, we all have our favourites and here are my top five recommendations...

1. Eve Lom's Kiss Mix has long been a favourite of mine.  It goes on smoothly and doesn't leave a sticky residue.  It has a slightly pharmaceutical smell to it too, which makes you feel it must be doing some good!

2. Lanolips is one of my newer purchases.  It looks like a lip-gloss and comes either as a neutral balm or tinted with a variety of berry colours.  My favourite is rose, a slight tint that just stains the lips.

3. Now Burt's Bees isn't my favourite but it works well, leaving lips feeling moisturised and it's all natural too, which is always a consideration.

4. I guess Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Lip repair cream speaks for itself!  Part of the infamous Eight Hour range, I use this every night before I go to sleep.  It has a wonderful eucalyptus scent and leaves a very subtle sheen. 

5.What can I say!  Good old Vaseline - I know, I know, petroleum...BUT it works.  It goes on smoothly, not too sticky, gives a subtle sheen and comes in a variety of shades and flavours.  I have a different one in every bag I own and couldn't be without it.

So, those are the balms I'm loving right now.  What about you? Which balms do you use and recommend? I'd love to hear...
