It’s all about the tingle…

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 25 - 2010

I have an embarrassing confession to make.

I’m addicted to lip tingling products.  No, really.  I’ve always liked ’em, I don’t care if they actually plump or not… it’s the tingle that turns me on.

But just recently (about 4 days ago) it’s kinda gotten out of hand.  I picked up a Burts Bees Lip Balm and I just can’t put. it. down.

Is it doing much moisturising? Yeah, it’s alright… not as good as my beloved Lanolips, but it’s got that tingling and cooling thing going on thanks to the peppermint oil…

I’ve just looked and I’ve gone through a quarter of the tube this week, please can someone come prise it out of my fingers before I end up looking like this:

Thanks!

    haha I love that lipbalm – I use it every morning – I think have another 4 new ones to use up! xx

    Mmmm I have lanolips and its amazing!!!

  3. Ellie says:

    Haha I’m glad I’m not the only one addicted to this! I have one that sits on my computer at work and I probably reapply about every ten minutes! x

  4. Nikki says:

    I love this lipbalm! its in my bathroom cabinet and is used every morning and night! :)

  5. I love lip balm, especially the minty kind!

    I thought I was the only one who loves the tingle lol. Guess I need to go pick some of this up!

  7. Rebecca says:

    I’ve got the tin version of this and I have it on my coffee table and apply it all the time! It tastes so good and I love the tingles!

  8. Rocaille says:

    Love the tingle as well, I love my Softlips for that reason… plus they smell absolutely delicious. xxx

  9. Have you tried C.O. Bigelow’s Mentha lip products? Glosses and balms. Lots of minty fresh tingles. They even have a body lotion and foot lotion if you want an all over tingle. Just watch out for your eyes. 😀

    ahaha! oh dear…

    mac plushglass has the tingly sensation too and i kind of like it! it doesn’t plump up my lips at all though. not that i mind, i’d rather it not.

  11. Love the image! I have never tried Burt’s Bees Lip Balm, sounds like I should though. I am a big fan of Carmex Lip Balm, it contains camphor and menthol so “tingles” on application. Quite addictive!

  12. ……..is that last photo real? O_O

    I think I’m the opposite, and I cant stand the tingly feeling D: but I’m addicted to the feeling of balm on my lips. My lips are well moisturised even when they dont have balm or gloss on them, but I neeeeeeed that slick feeling.

  13. Tina says:

    Lol!!! 😀
    Oddly enough I don’t mind the tingling sensation either…
    Have yet to try Burt’s Bees, I ‘m thinking it should be my next lip balm purchase…!

    I too love the mint tingle, and really like this lip balm. Eve Lom Kiss Mix gives the best lip tingle I’ve ever encountered and it is a great balm too.
