My Favourite Lip Balms

Today is all about my favourite lip balms. I've filmed a video to go along with this and you can watch it HERE or down below. Starting off with basics I LOVE Eucerin's Aquaphor and I have it in the regular tube as well as the smaller Lip Repair version. When nothing else is working for dry or chapped lips this is what I turn to. I'm also a fan of Nuxe's Reve de Miel Lip Balm and I tend to use it in the morning prior to putting on lipstick or gloss etc. I also turn to Fresh's Sugar Lip Balm because it contains SPF 15 but for longer periods in the sun my go to is Balea's Aloe and Mint SPF 30 (nothing is worse than burnt lips).
Next up are three of my favourite tinted lip balms from Korea. These are Skin Food's Tomato Jelly Tint Lip and they are super soft and smooth tinted balms that are remarkably pigmented. They only come in three colours but these will always be a favourite. 
Continuing on with tinted balms I am a little bit obsessed with the Maybelline Baby Lips (I own a shocking FIVE of them). These are great for everyday use as they contain SPF 20 and they give the lips a perfect amount of colour and hydration. My favourites are Cherry Me and Fruit Punch. Also stuck in there is my Fresh Sugar Lip Balm in Rose which I love but I wish it was a but more pigmented than it is but it is great for no makeup days.
Finally we are on to the potted balms. I think my favourites are the Sleek Makeup Pout Polishes which I own in Powder Pink and Scandalous but I also have a soft spot for Vaseline's Rosey Lips, RMS Beauty's Lip Shine in Bloom and the Korres Lip Butter in Plum. If I had my way I wouldn't use a lip balm in a pot so I tend to apply these only at home or immediately after washing my hands. These are not for applying while riding the subway (unless you don't care how many germs end up in the product and then onto your lips)
What are your favourite lip balms?
