#1 Product of the Week

As a new blogger, I find it hard to be consistent with when I post on my blog. I can post weekly and then forget to post for a while. I don't want my blog to be like that so my aim is to get organised and post more regularly.

I read lots of other blogs and everyone seems to post a similar blog on a certain day of the week or month. I've been thinking recently about what blogs I enjoy writing and also about what you guys enjoy reading. So to start I'm going to post a blog talking of my favourite product of that week on a Friday. 

This week I have chosen a lip balm as my product of the week. Lip Balms are an essential part of most people's make up bags. It is an essential however, that in my opinion isn't given much time in reviews. 

I tried the much-hyped Baby Lips Moisturising Lip Balm by Maybelline this week. Coming in six different colours it promises to moisturise and hydrate your lips. I tried the Cherry one and really liked it.

This Lip Balm comes in a very eye-catching tube. It caught my eye as I was walking the aisles of Boots. Super bright, I was immediately drawn to the use of bright summer colours and bold writing.

I have a huge collection of lip balms at home and am pretty much happy to try anything that may tend to my dry, chapped lips. So anything that promises to 'hydrate' my lips is worth a try. I must say I love the smell and colour of these lip balms. Lots of lip balms I have previously tried have no colour to them.  This is so different. It smells and tastes amazing. *I just want to point out, I obviously didn't taste them on purpose* 

The reason I have picked this product as my product of the week is simply because of these factors. I would say it was fairly hydrating and left my lips feeling smoother than before I applied the balm. However, if I was picking a lip balm based solely on how hydrated and smooth it left my lips I would pick a Nivea Lip Balm. I found myself having to reapply this lip balm quote often to feel the hydrating effect.

Overall though this product was fab and for £2.99 each you can't go wrong.
