The Latest in Beauty Glamour Edit Box was a good excuse to try Maybelline Baby Lips. They’re not expensive but there were so many to choose from, including tinted balms, that it was easier to let someone else choose one for me!
Now, I’m not really into balms – I prefer my Nivea Lip Butter, Vaseline, or when I had it, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant. I also don’t like strong scents on my lips.
The Mint Baby Lips scent is perfect for me. It has a hint of mint which makes it pleasantly refreshing rather than being overpowering. I actually quite enjoy wearing it for the scent alone.
Packaging wise, as it is bright green, it is always easy to find in my bag.
As for how moisturising it is, I would say it is between Vaseline and the Nivea Lip Butter. Vaseline is more of a barrier and the lip butter is nourishing. Baby Lips feels like a moisturiser. I know most people love this balm but unfortunately I am not that enamoured with it. It just doesn’t last as long on the lips as I want it to so it will not be a replacement for my lip butter. I now carry all three and apply the Baby Lips when I’m in the mood for mint!
It may be that my lips require the Intensive Moisture Baby Lips and I’m willing to give that one a try. If you are a balm fan, give this one a try – I’m glad I received it!
