I very much appreciate beauty products that are conveniently packaged, meaning that it’s easy for me to carry them around with me in my purse or gym bag and they are TSA approved for my carry-on. I also love beauty products that contain ingredients, which are both organic and responsible. My love and appreciation of these qualities in beauty products is precisely why as of late it is practically impossible to find me without my Clean George Chill Out Stick. Read more

Once summer arrives, I need everything to feel and be light, simple and effortless. From my clothing, to food to my beauty products, everything needs to have that summery carefree essence to it. Do you agree?
Which is why a few of my beauty products from winter, fall and even spring just do not make the cut for summer. During the cooler months I don’t mind feeling like there is a layer of protection between my skin and the dry, damaging chill of fall and winter. However, in the summer while I still need the protection, I really do not want to feel the products on my skin. I’ve had to retire a few of my lip products for the time being, especially my heavier lip balms and opt for lighter feeling, but still hydrating lip products. Read more

Jumbo seems to be quite a fad in cosmetics. We’re seeing all kinds of chubby crayons from lipsticks to eye shadows. I guess I’m a chubby chaser when it comes to lipstick, because I love the ease with which they apply, just a few quick swipes and you’re done. I do have one of the Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Balms and several Tarte LipSurgence sticks, but I wanted to see if there was something available at a drugstore price. The CoverGirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm ($7) display lured me in (okay, I wasn’t really that hard to get). Read more

Finally, a lip balm that you can actually eat! Not that I would intentionally eat my lip balm of course, but I do have a bad habit of licking my lips a lot so I know that I am ingesting a good portion of what I apply to my lips.
This is why I am ecstatic about Noya’s Kosher Natural Lip Care. All of their lip balms contain only 3-5 all-natural, kosher ingredients such as Coconut Oil, Beeswax and Organic Extra Virgin Olive. The lip balms come in four flavors, Cherry, Vanilla, Spearmint and Classic and it’s difficult to pick which one I love best because they are all amazing.
They are moisturizing without being super sticky or heavy feeling and both Read more

Just about everyone I know, both men and women, all have one beauty item in common and that is lip balm. A lot of men may be hesitant to regard lip balm as a beauty item, but regardless they carry it around in their pockets anyway on a regular basis and most women seem to never ever be without lip balm in their purses, desk drawers, night stands, etc. and I am no exception. For me, lip balm is a necessity and I love experimenting with different flavors, brands, scents and packaging because in this economy, it is one of the few beauty items that one can experiment with that won’t break the bank.

Lip balms are a must in my daily beauty routine. Regardless if I’m relaxing at home or heading out, I always make sure my lips are moisturized and protected. A lip balm for me must moisturize without feeling heavy and oily on my lips. Even better if it has SPF.
Infinity Sun Avance Balme lip care is a blend of the finest certified organic ingredients, including Organic Beeswax, Organic Vitamin E, Organic Essential Oils, Organic Rosemary Extract and Organic Calendula to soothe and heal chapped lips, keeping the lips moist, soft, and supple. And to top it off, all four flavors – Citrus, Coconut, Spearmint & Vanilla Bean, have SPF15. Read more

Every avid beauty collector has at least one product they can’t live without. Whether it’s your favorite moisturizer, a concealer that tops all the rest, or the best mascara that seems to completely transform your face, every gal’s got something they stock up on religiously and keep in every purse, pocket, or car compartment! That product for me is Therapy Systems‘ Even Better Than Lips lip balm. Made from 100% natural ingredients, this bad boy soothes and moisturizes (no matter how chapped my pucker is), and doesn’t feel too heavy or waxy. Read more

As much as I enjoy playing with makeup, one of the reasons I adore summer so much is because I don’t need to wear as much product as I do during the colder months. Thanks to a (very gentle) kiss from the sun, my skin is clearer, allowing me to nix foundation, concealer, and bronzer.
On days when I dare to go especially bare, I pack only the essentials in my beach bag. Aside from a standard SPF 45 and a sun hat (must haves!), there are two secret weapons I’ve yet to leave home without this summer.
The first: tinted lip balm. After floating from brand to brand, I’ve fallen head over heels in love with Clinique’s Chubby Stick. The tried-and-true classic packs a triple punch with a kiss of color, SPF 15, and serious moisturizing properties. I’m a personal fan of the “Chunky Cherry” shade, but the color is so subtle that almost any shade will do the trick. Read more

I used to absolutely LOVE lip balms, but the older I get the more I seem to shy away from them.Â I guess I just have memories of lip balms being really thick and sticky with overwhelmingly sweet fruity scents and somewhat childish packaging… I had apparently missed the boat on BÃ©same Sweetheart Balms.Â This balmÂ is nothing like the lip balms I have used in the past.Â It is really moisturizing and conditioning without beingÂ thick and sticky.Â The Tangerine Sweetheart Balm smells like tangerines, but is not overpoweringly fruity, the scent is actually pretty refreshing.Â I am absolutely in love with the sheer color of the balm, it’s a very flattering reddish coral shade.Â The packaging isÂ also quiteÂ beautiful, it’s apparent that a lot of detail went into the packaging of this balm.Â It is pretty and feminine with just a touch of glamour.
Everything about BÃ©same Sweetheart Balm appealed to me, from the scent to the packaging to the feel and color.Â I would not be surprised if while wearing this balm my boyfriend is tempted to sneak in some extra besos…
Have you tried this lip balm or any other products from BÃ©same?
