Beauty: Lip Balm Hoarding

First up I'd just like to say that I've reached over 100 followers today! And a big thank you to everyone who's followed my blog I hope you all enjoy reading my posts as much as I love reading all yours! 
Now onto today's post..
I had a bit of a blast from the past today, I rediscovered the old used lip balm tins I'd saved from my holidays in Spain as a child. These lip balms are 'Gal collection' and I used to purchase one each time I went to the airport, I remember treasuring these because they were (and still are) the most intricate lip balms I'd ever seen and for that reason I didn't ever have the heart to throw them away. They speak for themselves for how lovely they are because they are some of the few tins I've ever managed to finish! But after a bit of research I can't find a place where I can buy these again which is a little bit disheartening. 

My love for lip care is no secret and I am a total hoarder, I just can't say no to them (particularly if they have gorgeous tins) and this photograph doesn't even show the extent of my collection! Vaseline is a long time favourite, over the years I've picked up every flavour they've released; the best being Creme Brulée in my opinion. Soap & Glory is another great brand the product is very glossy and a little stickier than the other balms I've bought but tastes delicious and really make your lips feel silky smooth. Personally I prefer non tinted lip balms to ones with a rosy sheen because my favourite time to use them is before bed and the last thing I want is pink greasy marks on my bedding! That said they are good for during the day if your lips are chapped and need a little colour pick me up. 
So on my wishlist for future buys are definitely..
♥ Eos (since I still have yet to try them)
♥ Gal Collection (providing I can source them online)
 Figs & Rouge (their tins are also decorated beautifully and has on offer for free handcream with purchases from that brand which I'm really excited about!)

What's your favourite lip balm brand?

Thanks for reading!
