Baby Lips!

Hello friends! Who loves lip balm? I do! And I was very intrigued when I was browsing the aisles of Walgreens last week and found Baby Lips from Maybelline. The cost was right around $4 and there were six different kinds... two clear shades- Quenched & Peppermint... and six tinted balms giving off shades of cherry, grape, pink, and peach. The shades sound mouth-watering, but they give off no taste or "flavor".

left: Peppermint, right: Pink Punch

Peppermint has a fresh minty scent, and Pink Punch has a much softer scent, that is just slightly fruity. Again, neither has any flavor. Some people prefer flavorless balms, but I actually like a little taste. And these don't taste bad... they just don't taste like anything! What I do enjoy about these is the moisture content... they claim to be "clinical strength"... and these are the results of the clinical study after four weeks of use (according to Maybelline)...
  • 82% Visibly less dry
  • 94% Less rough lips
  • 77% More supple
  • 77% Better looking lips
I haven't had these balms for four weeks, so I can't really vouch for the results of the study, but I must say, I wore my peppermint balm before bed and my lips felt very supple when I woke up. The balms also have an SPF of 20. Here's a look at how their appearance on the lips...

Peppermint: Just a clear balm... this is the natural color of my lips

Pink Punch: Equally as moisturizing as the clear, but one swipe reveals a beautiful pink tint. I love the juicy look this gives the lips!

Bottom Line: I love that these balms are available in a range of tints, and I really like the pink color. They feel nice on the lips, and are very comfortable to wear. Tyler just tried the peppermint & said it "feels good" (lol). The twist up applicator is basic, and easy to use, while the packaging seems rather loud & geared toward young makeup users. Doesn't bother me, just pointing it out. Texture wise, they remind me of the Nivea lip balms. My current favorite balms are the EOS Smooth Spheres- they aren't quite as slick as these, but they smell more "yummy" and have a slight flavor... so if I just want moisturization, I'll reach for those, but if I want a sheer pink tint, I'll go for Baby Lips! :)

  1. The packaging does look very young, but I'm glad you reviewed something as basic and simple as this because they're such an essential part of our routine, but they tend to get left out of reviews pretty often.

    Thanks! :)

  3. Thanks for the info. I'm always looking for a good lip balm with SPF that doesn't make my lips feel ever dryer after it wears off.

  11. I hope I can find these in my area so I can try them out. I like the EOS lip balms too but I don't like that I have to re-apply quite often.

  16. I picked up the Peach Kiss the other night after a little debate between that one and the Pink Punch. I'm enjoying them because they aren't as thick and are CHEAP. :) I might have to go back for the Pink Punch!

  18. The Asia version is super moisturising and smooth. totally different from the US. It's like lip cream in stick form, you should try it if you can get your hands on it. :) Too bad ours aren't tinted, I love cherry chapstick!
