Lip Lust

One of my fave beauty products Labello lip balm. Unfortunately, it's only available in Europe, so whenever I'm there I always make a point to stock up. If you've never tried Labello before, think of a it as a smoother version of chapstick, with a way better taste.

I recently learned that Labello was bought by Nivea - an American company, and is now available under the guise of "Nivea." I was thrilled to hear this news as my last European Labello is almost out! I found the Nivea version at a local drugstore for about $2.99, and my lips have never been happier!

A few weeks ago I saw a some Japanese tourists buying 40 Labellos at a big drugstore in town. I was wondering why and now you post explains it. :) I like the Chapstick better and it's not available in Germany.

I use this too, and love the pink one, which adds a tint of color and shimmer!

Wonderful! :) I am a Burt Bees chapstick user through and through - it is SO delightful to use. :) But I may have to try this one out. :)

Just what I need! A good chapstick and a new pair of ultra stylish rain boots (it is going to rain for another 2 weeks straight in Seattle!). Happy monday! Monika

oh ya! I lust after this too!!

I was buying loads in the UK every year since I go through so much, and was very happy to see them sell it here with Nivea!! Have you tried the one with a red lip tint?

I'm going to have to try this! My lips are perpetually dry and chapped during the winter, and I have yet to find a product (other than smearing Vaseline all over my lips) that works well.

Oh, I'm going to have to get this. I cannot get enough of a good chapstick, plus Nivea is such a comfort brand for me - smells like my grandmother!
