Tag Archives: lip balm


I recently saw this brand carried by TracyPorter.com and the New York Botanical Garden gift shop.  If it wasn’t for my desire to downsize my makeup collection or use up previous cosmetics I bought within these past few months (be on better behavior hehe), I would have purchased a few of these lovely little items.  Just look at the packaging; isn’t it sweet?!  So pretty!   I’m a sucker for thoughtful pretty packaging.  The NYBG shop had a few testers available.  Everything smelled so yummy.   So if you are not currently Project 10 panning like me, treat yourself to a kissing kit or lip balm or two…

EOS: Evolution of Smooth

It’s never too early to moisturize your lips (though winter is still being held back by the hot days of summer).  It’s a ritual of mine to apply a lip treatment before going to bed.  EOS has rapidly become a favorite lip treatment of mine, besides Lush lip scrubs and SoftLips.  I just bought a yummy flavored summer fruit lip balm sphere from Rite Aid and I’m dazzled by the non-sticky texture.  Almost feels like your lips are still naked.  EOS doesn’t disappoint.

What’s In My Night Stand? & SoftLips

Cotton gloves and socks (a gift to me from a previous co-worker), under eye cream (for nighttime; I use whatever samples I’ve accumulated and I’m not totally brand loyal), assorted travel-sized Victoria Secret lotions from the Secret Garden Collection, a big tube of Clarins Hand & Nail Treatment Cream (which I use especially during the winter months), an aromatherapy/herbal eye pillow, a pair of pink Yoga Toes, Opi Soften Foot Cream, a sample pot of Lush Fair Trade Foot Lotion, a small mirror, and a modest collection of lip balm (SoftLips, my new favorite).

Yes, I’m crazy about SoftLips and want to collect all the flavors hehe.  They will make awesome Christmas stocking stuffers.  I’ve already started to accumulate some for those on my Christmas list.  Every year I start early so I don’t have to scramble or end up buying less thoughtful gifts.  So far I love Pearl best.
