Hello My Lovelies,
I hope you are all doing well and have had a fabulous week so far! Do you know what today is?! It is Friday but it is a special Friday indeed...it is National Kissing Day! There literally seemed to be national day for everything these days and I love how they just add a little something to any regular day. I have teamed up with Balmi to bring you a review of one of their Lip Balms and how you can get your lips ready for National Kissing Day...pucker up! It is something a little different and fun to include alongside this review.
Perfect your pout and ensure your lips are irresistibly smooth in time for National Kissing Day with Balmi. Formulated with antioxidant rich Vitamin E and soothing Jojoba Oil and Shea Butter, this cult wonder balm will leave your lips beautifully moisturised and soft to the touch.
The lip balm itself has been designed with active people in mind which is perfect as I love a lip balm I can throw in my handbag on the go. The unique square packaging and the conical shaped balm ensured quick and easy application when on the move whilst SPF 15 and UVA protection means you are guarded from the elements whatever the weather. The cube style packaging doesn't look like your stereotypical lip balms but that is one of the reasons why I love them and I want to collect them all. I really like how the outer packaging corresponds with the flavour of the lip balm itself. The luminous coraly red silicone packaging is cute to the eye but also incredibly handy when rummaging my handbag for necessities. To use all you have to do is twist the top to reveal the conical shaped product and apply straight to your lips. The packaging is great, however, I did notice one flaw that you may have to keep in mind when using them. The first time I twisted open the lip balm itself I actually created a hefty dent in the product (cries). This may not occur for everyone and it may have been Sophia being an eager beaver as usual but I thought I would let you know...I am extra careful now!
I decided to give the Raspberry flavour a try on this occasion to try something a little different to what I usually opt for. However, if Raspberry is not for you then there are four other flavours to try including Strawberry, Coconut, Mint and Blackcurrant. You are sure to find a fruity flavour you will enjoy! Also, the lip balms themselves are £4.99 which I think it a great deal for a product you know is going to work and lasts a considerable amount of time. Also, for a limited time Boots.com are offering the Balmi lip balms for £2.99 so what better time to give them a try than now! One thing that sparked to mind when I saw these lip balms were there resemblance to EOS lip balms! They are also incredible EOS Lip Balm dupes so if you are on the hunt for those (they are hard to come by in the UK) I seriously recommend you give these Balmi lip balms a try. I have both brands in my collection and I think they come in pretty close to each other and have so many similarities which is great.
Top 3 Tips for Kissable Lips
1. Exfoliate: Firstly, you will need to use some sort of lip scrub to exfoliate any dead skin away and create a smooth surface. I love using a mixture between home-made sugary lip scrubs or my favourite Bubblegum lip scrub by Lush.
2. Moisturise: Once you have exfoliated your lips are ready for a super moisturising lip balm...this is where your Balmi lip balm comes in or any of your favourite lip balms. You can keep your lips smooth and hydrated by applying a good coating of lip balm every night before you go to bed to let the balm work its magic throughout the night. I love doing this and waking up with transformed lips!
3. Keep Hydrated: Just like our skin our lips will reap the consequences if we don't drink enough water daily. I am guilty of this and find keeping a bottle of water with me at all times has really helped me increase my fluid intake. Alternatively, if you find it harder drinking plain water then spice it up a little (not literally haha). Incorporate and infuse your favourite fruits and/or vegetables into your water - this will also aid in your daily vitamin intake.
Overall, I have really been enjoying using my new Raspberry Balmi Lip Balm and I cannot wait to give the other yummy flavours in the collection a try! Like always lovelies, if you have any questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me on my social media or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you all and I make sure to read every single comment…they really make my day!
