Lip balm Collection revisited

A few days ago, I randomly decided to count the number of lip balms that I owned. The last time I blogged about my lip balm collection was in December 2010 and since then it has grown quite a bit. Turns out that I have a nice collection (obsession) of 39 lip balms. This is not including any back up lip balms that I have, as well as the Vaseline lip tin. So without further ado, here's a collage of my lip balm collection =)

So there are quite a lot there, and I'll just list the names below (incase anyone does want to know).
Starting in the top left hand corner:

E.L.F Therapeutic conditioning lip balm (Vanilla), Softlips (French Vanilla), Betty Crocker Fudge Brownie, Clinique Superbalm Moisturising Gloss (Grapefruit), The Body Shop Lip Roll on (Mint), TBS Papaya Lip Butter, TBS Mango Lip Butter, Rose&Co Rose Petal Salve, Rose&Co Cherry Kiss, Vaseline Lip Therapy tube, Carmex Classic, Nivea Light Kiss 
E.L.F Candy Shop Lip Gloss (Berry Pop), Lip Smackers Coca Cola, Simple Pleasures Citrus Cooler, SP Coconut Vanilla Bean, SP Pineapple Mandarin, SP Mango Sugar Cane, SP Hibiscus Kiwi, SP Passionfruit Orchid, TBS Born Lippy Cool Mint, TBS Born Lippy Strawberry, H&M Fresh Lime, H&M Fresh Mint 
I Love...Raspberry & Blackberry, Boots Extracts Cocoa Butter, Madinat Jumeirah Coconut Lip Balm, Celia Birtwell Lip Balm, LUSH Lip Dip Lip Scrub (LE), LUSH Sweet Lips Lip Scrub, E.L.F Studio Conditioning Lip Balm SPF15 (Mellow Melon), Sleek Pout Polish Perfect Plum, Sleek PP Raspberry Souffle (LE), Sleek PP Peach Perfection, Sleek PP Frosting, Lip-o-cino Ice Berries, Next Sweet Mango Lip Balm, H&M Pink Frosting and H&M Creme Brulee

note: TBS = The Body Shop, SP = Simple Pleasures, PP = Pout Polish.

And here's how I store some of them, stacked up on top of one another. These are the ones that I reach for the most and therefore are kept on my desk instead of in my drawer =)

I don't have one favourite lip balm, but I do use a few more than others =)
- The Celia Birtwell Lip Balm is kept in my bag (and is transferred from bag to bag!)
- Carmex is the one I use the most at home
- The Betty Crocker Fudge Brownie is my most unique (and it smells like chocolate!)
- I use the E.L.F therapeutic conditioning lip balm before going to sleep (not really for any particular reason)
- Sleek Pout Polishes are used when I want a bit of colour on my lips, but not bothered to wear lipstick/lipgloss (which is probably why they're kept with the rest of my coloured lip products)
- I love the LUSH Sweet Lips lip scrub! It smells great and you can simply lick it off after scrubbing (I know there's probably a cheaper/easier way of making it at home but for now this is chocolate and vanilla goodness)
- The newest lip balms in my collection are the H&M Pink Frosting and H&M Creme Brulee (which both have Disney inspired tins and smell gorgeous)

Hope you enjoyed this blog post! Let me know what kind of things you like to collect in the comments below =)
