Browsing online for lip balms one day, I happened to stumble upon Vintage Sister and I am so glad I did. These lip balms are super moisturizing, non-sticky, and don’t have a waxy feel like other lip balms I have tried. Bonus: the packaging is super cute, they have fun flavors inspired by seasons, cocktails, and chocolate to name a few, and they are very affordable!
The lip balms are packaged in two forms: tins or tubes. I purchased both.
Pros of lip balms in tins:
Very hydrating with ingredients like shea butter and vitamin E
A unique array of flavors
About $3.95 each
Aromatic without being overwhelming
Cons of lip balms in tins:
Not travel friendly- the lid can slide open easily in bags, pockets, or travel gear and they liquefy quickly when exposed to heat
Unless you use a clean finger or disposable applicator, cross contaminating can occur
Pros of lip balms in tubes:
Formulated with great moisturizing ingredients such as shea butter and apricot kern oil
Between $3.50-$4.00 each
Cons of lip balms in tubes:
Limited flavor selection
Although they provide great moisture than most other lip balms, these feel slightly less hydrating than the ones in tins
Overall: I really do love these. I carry the tube lip balms in my purse and leave the tin lip balms on my bedside table to use at night. They make adorable gifts, are a fun and inexpensive indulgence, and wear well under lipstick/lipgloss.
A definite repurchase!
