Friday Favourites - Nourishing Lip Balms

With cold weather and wind flocking our skin this season, our dry lips are in need of a moisturising treatment.  To help soften lips this spring we here at The Amazing Blog have gathered a few handbag sized lip balms (and pocket sized for men) to help keep your lips moisturised...and kissable!

Bomb cosmeticsBomb Cosmetics, a company specializing in natural and handmade lip treatments, believes in curing the body, face and lips with the powers of natural butters and pure essential oils.  With a love for all things green, Bomb Cosmetics containers and packaging are constructed with 100% recycled products; they also promise to never test products on animals!  Bomb Cosmetics channels their passion for the planet into their bright, natural and fun product designs.  Their lip care products come in various scents and flavours, all at an affordable cost!  We particularly love the Lipology Intense Lip Treatment balm in Chocolate Jaffa Orange, as it is designed to deeply moisturise and hydrate tough lips.  With ingredients like Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil and Fruit Oil, the Chocolate Jaffa Orange balm leaves a zesty chocolate scent on the lips that’s good enough to eat!  Unlike many balms, the Lipology Intense Lip Treatment in Chocolate Jaffa Orange does not leave a waxy coating on the lips, but certainly leaves lips feeling soft with additives of Aloe and Beeswax.  This pocket size lip balm is perfect for treating lips on-the-go Bomb Cosmetics Lipology Intense Lip Treatment in Chocolate Jaffa Orange can be found here for £2.49.

Sticking with the theme of vegan friendly lip balms, we have also discovered HURRAW!  Unlike most lip balms, HURRAW is not the typical girly, sweet smelling lip balm; rather all HURRAW lip balms are designed to offer a natural yet fun flavour and scent.  It is no wonder these balms have an organic flavouring, as they are constructed from wild-crafted, fair-trade ingredients such as seed oils and butters.   Some of the lip balm flavours offered by HURRAW include Almond, Earl Grey, Vanilla Bean and Mint and 17 other creative yet natural flavours.  Because of the unique taste and design of these lip balms, HURRAW balms are suitable for both women and men.  All HURRAW balms offer a layer of long-lasting protection without being too glossy for males.  Select HURRAW lip balms also include SPF.  They are also the perfect size for your handbag or your back jean pocket (gentlemen!).  Select your favourite, natural HURRAW lip balm flavour here for £3.99.
