Lipbalm Collection and Storage

Hi everyone,
I thought I'd show you my lipbalm collection and how I store them.

My lipbalm storage consists of the lid of a Soap and Glory gift set and a little candle holder.
I store my lipbalms on top of my dressing table in front of my mirror, this is so I can grab one quickly as I leave the house and I always have them on hand. 

Dirty Works Go Balmy! Lip Balm
This is a clear, moisturising, strawberry scented lipbalm. I bought this when it was reduced   down to 74p in Sainsburys a while ago. It's a nice lipbalm but not my favourite. :)

balance Me Rose Otto Intensive Lip Salve
I got this free with Glamour this month, it's quite an effective balm, definitely gets my lips nice and soft but the smell is a little weird. It kinda of smells like roses/turkish delight but it gets a bit overpowering.

The Beauty Parlour Mentha Lip Balm
This has a lovely sweet mint scent/flavour, I've been enjoying this recently.

Soap and Glory A Great Kisser Lip Balm in Sweet Coconut
This smells yummy and tropical, it's moisturising and has a very subtle shimmer to it.

Soap and Glory A Great Kisser Lip Balm in Juicy Peach
For me the smell of this is so strong! I'm not that keen on it even though it does a good job of moisturising the lips. 

MUA Sweet Kiss Lip Balm
This is part of the MUA Lovehearts range, it only costs £2. This balm has a vanillary fragrance and a subtle pink tint. 

Avon Care Rich Moisture Lip Balm
I got this a couple of Christmas' ago, it smells yummy and like melon.

The Body Shop Coconut Lip Roll On
This is a lip moisturiser made from olive and soya oils, it has a slight scent of coconut and feels a bit greasy on the lips.

Cherry Chapstick
I reaally don't like the smell or taste of this, it reminds me of cough medicine.

Avon Colour Trend Lipbalms in Hot Chocolate and Strawberry Sorbet
These aren't the best lipbalms quality wise but they smell so yummy! And they are fairly moisturising. The strawberry one smells like sweets! The hot chocolate one smells like cheap chocolate. :)

Swizzels Matlow Double Dip Cherry Flavour Lipbalm
I got all the sweeties themed lipbalms above in a gift pack at Christmas, I just couldn't resist buying them. :)
The Double Dip lip balm is lovely! It's very moisturising and lasts quite a long time on the lips. It has such a delicious cherry smell!

Swizzels Matlow Rainbow Drops Strawberry Flavour Lipbalm
I love rainbow drops! This lipbalm didn't smell/taste much like them but its a nice, creamy strawberry lip balm. 

Swizzels Matlow Double Lollies Pineapple Flavour Lipbalm
I was so excited to try this when I got it, the idea of a pineapple flavoured lipbalm is awesome! It doesn't smell very strongly of pineapple but there is a nice hint of it. 

Swizzels Matlow Drumstick Raspberry and Vanilla Flavour Lipbalm
I love this lipbalm! It smells amazing! The mixture of raspberry and vanilla together has to be one of my favourite scents. The lip balm is really moisturising and creamy too. 

Cupcake Flavoured Lipbalm
I really wanted this to be amazing, the packaging is so pretty but when I opened the product to use it the smell of paint/wood varnish just totally put me off. It at least still looks pretty on my dressing table. :)

Thanks for reading,
