The lip balm that tastes good enough to eat!

The lip balm that tastes good enough to eat!

I picked up this cute Bee Good Raspberry & White Chocolate Lip Balm* in my goody bag from a recent blogger event that I attended in Leeds, the #LeedsMarchMeet. It was a social meeting for bloggers who live in the Leeds area and the aim was to raise money and collect donations for a local foodbank. I had a great time at #LeedsMarchMeet, it’s always nice to meet other bloggers – they’re such a friendly bunch! We also got crafty making our own name badges and feasted on sweets and tasty homemade cakes. There were several health and beauty goodies in my goody bag including this lip balm from Bee Good. The brand was created in 2008 by a Hampshire beekeeper and his wife when they were looking to find uses for excess honey and beeswax from their bees. The brand has leaping bunny status, meaning that their products aren’t tested on animals, and the natural ingredients of the lip balm include British beeswax, Vitamin E, Borage Oil and Echium...

Burt’s Bees – Lip Balm with Blueberry & Dark Chocolate

Burt’s Bees – Lip Balm with Blueberry & Dark Chocolate

Burt’s Bees was one of the very first natural skincare brands that I fell in love with, and since then I’ve reviewed a few of their products including this Lip Shimmer in Guava. Their lip balms are my absolute favourite, they’re made with 100% natural ingredients such as beeswax and natural oils and don’t make my lips feel sticky. I was recently sent this Burt’s Bees Revitalizing Lip Balm with Blueberry & Dark Chocolate* to try out and I absolutely love it! The chocolatey fragrance really comes through and it actually makes me want to eat chocolate when I apply it (not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing!). I love to go walking and this lip balm really prevents my lips from chapping in this wet and windy weather that we’ve been having recently. Burt’s Bees Revitalizing Lip Balm with Blueberry & Dark Chocolate is the perfect low-calorie chocolatey treat and at just £3.99 each a Burt’s Bees Lip Balm in any flavour would make a perfect stocking...

Clarins  – Lipliner Pencils in Bay Rose & Chocolate

Clarins – Lipliner Pencils in Bay Rose & Chocolate

Is it just me or are there not many reviews of lip liner pencils on blogs these days? Perhaps it’s because a lip liner pencil is just one of those things that is a necessity but isn’t very exciting? Well all that is about to change! I’m on a one-woman mission to make lip liner pencils sexy again! Starting now: I want to talk to you about these very lovely Lipliner Pencils* from Clarins in Bay Rose and Chocolate. They come packaged in the usual bright red Clarins boxes that I love so much. Both of these Lipliner Pencils have a lovely soft texture and they are enriched with Vitamin E. They glide on easily around the lip line with no dragging – there’s nothing worse than a really hard lip pencil that hurts the delicate skin around the lips. Not only can they be used as lip liners, they can also be used in place of lipstick all over the lip, the soft buttery texture means the colour...
