I love Shea butter moisturising stick. It’s a good moisturiser, but I use it more like a body hand lotion. It just melt under the heat of your hand. I like it. It’s meltie and makes my skin smooth. It’s also good for wrinkles, stretch marks and dry skin.
100% Cocoa butter is a bit harder. It doesn’t really melt on your hand. The way I use these stuff is like how you use a stick glue. Cocoa butter will melt when you rub your skin. So it’s not that hard for it to melt. It’s just a bit more solid. I just think if you like the smell of cocoa, you’ll love this. It’s the same scent as the lipbalm also. This just say that it’s for stretch marks and dry skin.
In the end cocoa butter is slightly more moisturising. I don’t mind both. But I think this is really good for anyone who are not allowed to scratch their skin, but feeling the itch. Moisturising is good for skin, so you can use the stick to so call scratch yourself. It’s gentle and good for you. Also not overly pricey. I can’t remember exactly. But it should be below $5.
Nivea Essential Care is a last minute purchase. Was desperate for a lip balm, and so grab something on sale. It is alright. Nourishing enough, but I mean the price is that much, you can’t really expect miracle. But I do like it, just that I find it quite boring.
Sanoflore Baume Levres Nourricier comes in such a cute packaging. The balm is drying, so it is quite hard to actually use. I guess a lip brush will help, but that is just so troublesome. This is also not cheap, I want to say €7, that’s like $11 to me. Ok fine, $11 for 12g is actually quite a fair price. But I really think that the product is quite hard to use.
Hurraw Moon Balm is suppose to be use before bedtime. It is so-so. Not the most nourishing balm for night time, but if your lips is not chapped, this will be good. As it hydrates but doesn’t stick to your pillow kind. A normal balm, I feel. I just do not like the smell of this. It is suppose to be calming and relaxing, but just not my kind of scent.
Cococare Cocoa Butter Lip Balm is very buttery. I like this. It is just a simple yellow tube. But I do feel that is great for chapped lips. It is very smooth, almost like putting on butter. If you like cocoa butter scent, then you will not have a problem with this.
