A look at the lip balms to get you through summer:
I never usually think about my lips in summer, or at least I don't think that they need protection or anything. I recently went to Spain and the heat dried up my lips and made them blister slightly, which is something that's never happened before.
To get me through I used Nivea Sun Protection as it contains SPF. It's great as it acts just the same as a sun cream with the added bonus of sinking in really quickly and leaving your lips feeling soft.An all year round favourite is the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour lip cream. It comes in a tub which does mean getting your finger messy, but that said tub lasts ages and ages. This lip cream is the most moisturising and acts as a great multitasker just like the original 8 hour cream.
The Malin + Goetz lip moisturiser is a little hard to squeeze out at first, and is quite silicon-y in feel (or to like Benefit's POREfessional) it does however fell all those little gaps in your lips for a smooth base, making it perfect to add those lip colours on top.
And finally the Dr PawPaw Original Balm* is very similar to the Malin + Goetz only it's creamier and lasts longer on the lips. It also works well in water!
