While hanging out backstage with the lovelies from Maybelline and Redken during Toronto Fashion Week, I was lucky enough to be gifted a few products to try at home. And if there was one item in that generous gift bag that I am seriously obsessed with a couple of weeks later…it’s BABY LIPS by Maybelline ($6.49).
Initially, I brushed it off as yet another Chapstick-like balm…but then I tried it, and my lips have not been the same since. Baby Lips’ moisturising lip renew formula with SPF 20 promises up to 8 hours of hydration for visibly renewed lips after only 4 weeks. In my case, I noticed the difference in just a couple of days! My lips felt softer, never chapped, and definitely “renewed”. And unlike other lip balms, I didn’t feel like my lips were addicted to the product, and didn’t look any worse when I didn’t reapply.
Initially, I got a freebie version in “Peppermint” flavour, but have also picked up the “Cherry Me” version for a little hint of colour. There are 6 different flavours/shades in all, including “Quenched”, “Grape Vine”, “Peach Kiss”, and “Pink Punch”, and I am determined to collect all 6.
If you need some lip-love this spring, don’t walk…run to your nearest drug store, because from what I hear, these babies are selling out like hot cakes.
