Friday Favourites: Lip Balms

Whenever packing our handbags for the day ahead, we at The Amazing Blog always make sure to have lip balm with us. It’s essential to protect lips and as an added bonus it keeps them looking glossy throughout the day.  Today we thought we'd share with you our current favourite lip balms that will keep us pouting all summer!

We’re back and ready for more on A.T Antao products! We particularly enjoyed using the Intelligent Sleep Mask and OMG Eyeliner. The luxury brand founded by Teniya Tao, made their UK debut at the CEW Beauty Awards Product Demonstration Evening earlier this year. After unveiling their newest products, we were excited to try the Colour Awakening Lip Balm. The lip balm is in a sleek black casing and is the perfect  shade for summer. The subtle blush pink gives the lips a natural pop of colour for a simple and feminine look. However, the best part of this product is that the colour will change according to body temperature. Purchase the lip balm here for £8.80 and tell us about your colour-changing story!


Something that we all should be conscious of are the chemicals put into certain beauty products, and thankfully, Nathalie Bonds is one step ahead of us. Bonds began her company during her pregnancy with her son. During this time, she learned not only of the harmful chemicals we consume but of the chemicals in skincare products that have adverse effects on reproduction and developmental issues. She believes that less is more, and in doing so, she has created a natural skincare line that is high-quality and effective. We started using the Revive Lip Balm in spearmint and Bloom Lip Balm in rose geranium. The organic cocoa butter formula moisturises, protects, and improves skin flexibility. Each balm also contains olive oil to help chapped lips and calendula oil to soothe and reduce excess oil. You can purchase the Revive Lip Balm here for £7.00 and the Bloom Lip Balm here for £6.00.


Lastly, with the full-on 30-degree summer here in the UK, we started using Eco Cosmetics’ Lip Care Stick that contains an essential SPF25 to protect our lips from burning. We were eager to try this out after previously using their hair mousse. The stick uses Titanium Dioxide and Karanja Oil to protect from harmful UV rays, and it hydrates the lips with sunflower and pomegranate oils. The balm is light, soft and keeps dryness at bay. Purchase it here for £6.20. Mwah! And enjoy.
