Friday Favourites - Lip Balm Feature

We at The Amazing Blog love a good lip balm for keeping our lips moisturised. This week, we picked our four favourite balms that will ensure your lips stay soft and smooth all day long.

Stress from work and bitter, weather-induced colds can mean unsightly cold sores, which can affect your confidence and your party-ready image. Thankfully, we have the liquorice lip balm from Skin Shop to keep cold sores at bay and our lips hydrated. The lip balm contains liquorice extract, so it helps to reduce the severity and duration of cold sores naturally. It evens works better than most traditional cold sore treatments, but doubles as a chic balm that comes in a stylish, circular container. The liquorice balm is free of parabens, perfumes, MI and SLS and is clear and natural with a faint liquorice aroma. To cure your cold sores fast and prevent new outbreaks from occurring, get your own container from Skin Shop here for £7.95 and get ready to see immediate results and flawless lips.

For a fabulous lip balm you can share with your lover, we love the unscented lip balm from Dr. Harris & Co. because of its modern packaging and super moisturising texture. The balm contains menthol and cocoa butter, which are restorative properties designed to make you lips as smooth as possible. It’s unscented and has a lightweight texture that is never sticky or overwhelming, and feels as soft as butter on your lips. The product is luxurious yet affordable and was previously featured in the British Airways First Class bag. To get your own Dr. Harris lip balm, head to their website here and pick one (or two) up for £4.95 and get ready for a kiss-worthy pucker.


Trying to find a solution to dry, cracked, winter-damaged lips? Look no further than the transparent lip balm from Couleur Caramel cosmetics for an easy, one-step fix. The lip balm is loaded with super-nourishing ingredients and comes in a cute lipstick-style tube, rather than a standard lip balm tube or pot. Since it isn’t sticky and feels ultra-lightweight, you can apply it as often as you desire from its lipstick-style tube to instantly smooth and soften your lips. It applies cleanly and is a wonderful base before using your standard coloured lipstick. Get your hands on your own nourishing balm for £15 on the Couleur Caramel website here and never worry about chapped lips again.

For a fresh and tropical twist on your everyday lip balm, we highly recommend the lime and coconut lip balm from Filbert’s Bees, a 100% natural body care company. The lime and coconut lip balm is only one of many different balms the company makes, but this flavour is one of their best sellers. It comes in a cute, little tin that makes it easy to take with you wherever you go. The organic coconut scent offers a smooth, buttery feel, while the zesty lime scent refreshes and awakens the senses. When combined, the two scents will transport you from your office to a tropical holiday whenever you use the product. To pick up your own Filbert’s lip balm, head here and purchase as many as you’d like for £3.85 each.
