Damn you, chapped lips!

 I love winters so much. I really do. It's my favourite season of all time. I love the feel of the cold breeze against my skin. I love burying my cold fingers deep in the pockets of my jacket. I love how everyone's so much calmer. I love how everything's so much more serene.
 What I don't like so much?
 Chapped lips. But then what are lip balms for?

So here are three lip balms I'm currently using:

Maybelline Color Bloom Lip Balm in Peach Blossom
Maybelline (regular lip balm?) in Strawberry
The Body Shop Lip Balm in Satsuma Shimmer

Maybelline Color Bloom Lip Balm in Peach Blossom

Maybelline Lip Balm in Strawberry

The Body Shop lip balm in Satsuma Shimmer
 I wouldn't say any of them are crazy spectacular. I do like the Maybelline Strawberry lip balm a lot, though. Mostly because it's tinted, it smells good, it lasts long, its not sticky, you don't have you use a finger to apply it, it's inexpensive and it practically never ends. I'm not even kidding. I've been using this for more than a year now, and I still have a whole lot left to use up.
 The Body Shop lip balm used to be my favourite. I apply it at night, before I go to bed. It has the kind of fragrance that some may love and some may find very annoying.
 And the Maybelline Color Bloom lip balm is nothing special. Just a regular lip balm with the slightest hint of colour. But it does the job.

 However, sometimes I feel like none of these do the best job moisturising my lips and I have this crazy urge to go get new stuff. But I don't want to. It's not right. Although the Maybelline Baby Lips do look really good...
