I was in one of my favourite local stores the other day and spotted a bargain .
As you may have guessed the Poundland store is full of wonders and you have to take the time in the beauty department for those once in a lifetime bargain chances.
Last month I spent my time in the shop routing for Self adhesive Eylure Lashes, priced in drugstores at £5.99 but being only £1 in the Poundland store, I made sure I picked them all from the shelf in bundles of 15's each time I visited.
I know I should have left them for others but when a bargain like that is right there in front of you , you have to get them before they go.
This time however, Maybelline Baby lips lip balms were there and having seen many others going crazy over them I made sure to pick up just four.
I thought they were all different scents but once home I found I picked a double up , so I got three of them and gave one to my daughter.
I thought I would give them a try and if they are there again next time I will grab the lot lol.
It is funny what that shop does to me, I seem to find a bargain like that and then go on a hoarding spree with one or two products (depending on what is there at the time), It is like I feel the need to stock up incase they are not there the next time I return.
I think it comes with being mum to 7 . I hate spending money but am the typical girl who loves nice things , especially when it comes to beauty products and stationary. I therefore look for bargains all of the time and every time I walk into that store there's something on the beauty stall ready to jump of the shelves and into my basket , (I am telling you , they really do have secret little legs and actually climb on their own).
The three Maybelline Baby Lips Lipbalm scents I picked up were -
Yes all for only £1 each - Bargain!
I always like to use Lip Balms , especially in the summer and because they have an SPF in them I felt these were a great buy .
Either way , if I was not going to like them , then my three little girls and even my son would take them from my hands I am sure.
So what do Maybelline have to say about their product?
This Lip balms instantly 8Hours Moisture Daily use and visibly reborn.
The next generation of lip balm is born, from Maybelline New york.
Adult strength care for baby soft lips.
Shed away Rough dryness for supple, smooth and cushioned lips all day long.
HOW TO USE
What I have to say about them-
So I have to be honest, I do not usually suffer with dry lips , not unless I am run down , or poorly so really for me Lip Balms are used to keep my lips soft and smooth for kissing especially .
I think as always , Maybelline have made these bright and colourful and I like the clours they have chose.
For me Maybelline always seem to have packaging that is aimed more towards the younger generation and although it is not a huge problem for me, I do somehow feel a little silly all dressed up looking lady like pulling one of these out of my pocket.
With a typical pop of cap and twist up lip balm this is easy to carry and hold in your hands .
I prefer the twist up method instead of dipping my fingers into the tub where bacteria can be easily transferred.
Ok so I got these for a cheaper than normal price at only £1 , so I can not grumble at all .
I think people were paying around £2 or £3 each depending on the shops they purchased them from and I would normally pay that for a lip balm anyway so it is reasonably priced.
I love lip balms so I did not think that there was going to be anything bad to say about this line anyway , and I was right.
I love the three scents that I received although the mango pie was not to my liking , never been much a fan , shame it was that one I doubled up on to be honest.
I was not expecting anything like a lip tint as they all go on clear so just a nice sheen is added to my lips.
My favourite of the three has to be the Anti-oxidant berry merely for the flavour (well not the flavour as you can not actually taste it but the scent more).
I have been using the balms before applying my lipstick which has given me a great soft, smooth feeling lip also leaving them look soft like baby skin ( hence the name Baby lips).
There is nothing spectacular about this lip balm and to be honest do not understant why there was such a hype about them although they do what they say and leave your lips soft with the extra SPF benefit.
If you like lip balms then it is worth getting but they are not any better than others I have tried .
Do you like using lip balms, have you got these , what is your most loved lip balm ?

The packaging is fab! I've not tried these before - I love the Rose vaseline tubs x

I've seen a lot of discussion over whether or not these are the genuine article, they're very different from the ones you buy in Superdrug or boots, odd
27/5/2014 08:46:34 am
they certainly are the genuine article, there are soo many types of baby lips now , they all have different looks , also different areas such as australia and china stock different packaging too x
27/5/2014 12:59:43 pm
Just to confirm these are the genuine article I had these ages and ages before Babylips was released into this country from a friend in Japan. These are the Asian version x

Oh fab, I was never sure as I was tempted by these before they came over to the uk but some said genuine, some said fake so I didn't bother.

28/5/2014 09:29:33 am

As I type my daughter is searching for yet ANOTHER lip balm she has lost :A We all get dry lips but I won't pay much for balms as she is always losing them. These look lovely though.
3/6/2014 01:10:28 pm
I am the same always buying them for the daughters so its great when you get a bargain like this x
28/5/2014 10:34:50 am
I'm like you, when there is a bargain, I buy lots! I had not used them before, they look great.
28/5/2014 12:52:47 pm
LOVE the packaging on these, so bright and colourful - perfect for Summer! I never leave the house without lip balm but have never seen these before so will definitely give them a whirl! xxx
28/5/2014 01:22:16 pm
What a bargain! I love checking out Poundland shops for these kind of things - I don't think a lot of people realise do they!
3/6/2014 01:11:38 pm
I think people always presume that there is just tat for being so cheap, but i often find high end brands in there in date and sometimes new too x
28/5/2014 01:38:57 pm
Mum of 7? Wowee! I am the youngest of four :) Mummy loves Poundland too x
28/5/2014 02:21:36 pm
I love these, fruity!
28/5/2014 03:38:11 pm
These look an absolute bargain for a pound. They look so funky and cool.
28/5/2014 03:58:36 pm
I love Maybelline products and I love lip balms so I am sure I would love these! x
28/5/2014 06:53:51 pm
I am sure I have 1 or 2 of these lying around the place I'll have to dig them out, I normally through hyped up products to the back as I hear so much about them lol.
29/5/2014 03:52:45 am
I swear by vaseline and always carry some in my handbag
30/5/2014 08:00:54 am
I don't use lipbalms but my 2 girls do and for a £1 these are a great bargain!
I'm with you, I think these lip balms are a tad overrated. They smell nice and make your lips soft and moist (like all good lip balms do!). I was a little disappointed when I first bought mines especially since I paid $8 for them :( You, however, got a GREAT deal! Lol.
3/6/2014 01:13:42 pm
i have since kept the cherry one and gave others to the girls, they just seem average to me , maybe i dont appreciate them as i should x
2/6/2014 09:15:49 am
ooh I'm always after new lip balms! these look ace! x
