Saving Chapped Lips - My 13 Member Army of Lip Savers + A Weird Indian Tip To Stop Chapped Lips For Eer

Nov 1, 2012



Voice over the Radio : "Attention! This message is for the Army of the Vanity Box. There is an information of possible security breech. Just a inch south of St Nose Peak, strong dry winds are going to attack from everywhere. This attack will make the area non-kissable. This is an emergency and requires closest attention. The situation is Scale A. Out."

Message from Army of the Vanity Box : "Roger. All members of relevance will be sent to the site. Out."



And the Army of the Vanity Box sent the following


1. Lotus Herbals Strawberry Lip Balm -

Rank Protector.
Formula : Jelly. 
Uniform: Tub

This was the first lip balm of my life. Something I started using at collage. This is my 4th or 5th tub. How I used so much? Because at times, it even acted as a moisturizer for specific dry points like elbow. I still love the strawberry smell in this one. Also, I was kinda addicted to applying lip balm.

2. Maybelline Lip Smooth in Cranberry -

Rank Protector (Retired). 
Formula : Jelly.
Uniform: Tube

Something that I learnt in collage was that things are shared - A lot. Then I realized I had to get something in tube to make sure someone is not using my lip balm. Then I got this. Actually I got something that had no color had smell. This one is the smell version. They are the vintage Baby Lips of Maybelline. Not sold anymore and this one is expired. I have kept it to remind me some beautiful personal things. One of them being that my mom predicted it that time that I would be a beauty product junkie and I became that true to her words.

3. The Body Shop Born Lippy Strawberry Lip Balm - 

Rank Protector.
Formula : Jelly.
Uniform: Tub

But I went back to strawberry with this one. I got it inside a strawberry gift set - a gift set that I got for myself in Diwali 2 years back. This one is thicker and smoother than the Lotus one.

4. Maybelline Color Bloom in Pink Blossom - 

Rank Protector with Color.
Formula : Jelly.
Uniform: Tube

This is the one that changes color and I am always amazed. I used everyday in last winter. It turns from clear to bright pink on lips and the stain remains for a long time. The whole look become very natural. I will surely repurchase this one. The Peach one is hopeless. The color of peach one does not change much on me.

5. Burt's Bees Bee's Wax Lip Balm -

Rank Healer.
Formula : Thick Jelly.
Uniform: Tub

My love. If I have chapped lips, I search for only this one. It has made my lips to chapped to supper soft and yummy in 30 mins. I apply it over night whenever there is an indicating of dry lips. Reviewed HERE. I am excited about Sephora in India ONLY because then I will have my access to all Burts Bee products.

6. Lakme Lip Love in Flirt -

Rank Protector with color.
Formula : Jelly.
Uniform: Tub

This is supposed to be a lip color but I decided to use it as a lip balm. I hope there is no police is after me! Reviewed HERE

7. RevAyur Lip Slider in Coconut - 

Rank Protector with Coconut Smell.
Formula : Jelly.
Uniform: Tub

Coconuty warm smell that comes inside in tin slider. But the smell does not last longer which gives me another opportunity to open the slider. It says tinted balm on the box but what kind of tint is white? In simple words, it gives you no color.

8. Kiehl's No 1 Lip Balm - 

Rank Protector.
Formula : Runny Jelly.
Uniform: Tube

Luckily I got it as a giveaway prize. Read about the review HERE.

9. NYX Cupcake Lip Balm In Chocolate -

Rank Intern - Not used so far
Formula : Jelly.
Uniform: Tub

I got it as a free gift from a blog sale. I haven't used it so far. The smell is not something that I can tolerate - very artificial.

Not Photographed here - The Body Shop Dragon Fruit Lip Butter, Maybelline Baby lips in Mango, Maybelline Baby lips in Coral Crush.

What I am going to  to now is what I do every winter - I am put the glosses and balm in every room, office drawers and bags. And speaking of office drawers, my colleage recenly commented - You keep your house in here!!???

  5. Love the way you've written this post with Rank and Uniform given to each balm...very witty.
    For me the thing that works best for chapped lips is exfoliating them with sugar+lemon juice and applying L'Occitane's 100% pure Shea Butter. It works better than any other lip balm.

  7. I have tons of them but by far I feel like the Nivea kiss of moisture is the best n vaseline original is also similar.
