After a long wait, Maybelline Babylips have finally make an appearance in the UK. Housed within colourful packaging and retailing for only £2.99 each, these new balms are a fun and youthful addition. For such an inexpensive product the ingredients are pretty substantial as all contain vitamin E, honey, shea butter and aloe. As a result these balms are smooth to apply and work wonders as a quick fix for dry lips. However, as they all also contain petroleum, once the lip balm wears off your lips, so do the effects. Like with most petroleum based products, these lean more towards the type of balm that can dry your lips out further, though unless you have badly chapped lips, I haven't found this too much of a problem.
|Cherry Me | Hydrate | Peach kiss|
Currently, there are 6 Baby Lips available in the UK, 3 clear, (all containing SPF), and 3 tinted. The tint is however very sheer, I've found Peach Kiss to be hardly detectable on my lips, though Cherry Me does give a nice wash of colour that perks up my lips just enough, whilst still looking natural. They also all smell quite nice which makes them just that little bit more fun to apply. As the names suggest, Cherry Me is cherry scented, Peach Kiss is peach scented and the clear Hydrate is scented with Lemon and Basil.
If i'm honest, I won't be declaring Maybelline's Baby Lips one of my favorite lip balms anytime soon, though the light tint and sweet fruity scents makes them a welcome addition to my stash and a great product to throw in your bag or pocket for a quick fix.
Have you tried any of the Baby Lips yet? What do you think?
