I studied in a strict convent where, obviously no make up was allowed. Even our nails had to be cut down to the maximum possible and out hair had to be double plaited, no pony's allowed. Forget even nail enamels!!! The only luxury that we had was possibly, Lip balms.

A few years back that was and here in my part of the world, we didn't have much variety in brands too (Ok, the 'we' was also just 2 of us. Myself and another last bencher like me!!!). The classic version of Vaseline was available and the only other option was the Himalaya Herbals Lip Balm. No, that was not what we see in the market today. It was before the brand underwent a Brand Makeover!!! Then, they had a offwhite / darkgreen combo tube packing and the slight fruity taste was not there. That's what we had in our school bags always. And then they had started testing the market with the makeover and the present pack, but with a rounded cap was just visible here n there in the market. My friend laid her hands on it first and then me, and since then I saw its packaging getting changed a couple of times and finally this. It has a lovely fruity flavour to it and it nourishes the lips like anything!!! Till date, its always there in my bag!!!
I recently got the Vaseline Cocoa Butter Lip Therapy as a free gift along with some other product that I bought and I did love it. Somehow I never liked the classic tasteless version of Vaseline, but this one - too good!!! The best part is the lip smacking chocolate taste, that makes you eat your lip balm!!! This one comes in a stick packaging.
Then, my uncle on one of his recent flight trips, got this Murad Green Tea Lip Protector, in the in-flight complimentary pack. I never knew of this brand so far. Its a California based brand. Well, the best part of this one - The Green Tea Flavour. Its heavenly. I always have this partiality towards earthy flavours, than fruity or floral, and this one fits the bill perfectly. This once was a cute little 3.5g pack. What's more, it has got SPF 15. Perfect, isn't it?!!!
I love all these...
