Addicted 2 Lip Balm

I recently discovered a wonderful new online store called Addicted 2 Lip Balm. It's an Australian store that's all about lip products. Due to the tortuous and never ending Post and Shame Challenge I haven't been able to place an order with Addicted 2 Lip Balm yet, but as soon as my torture is over this is the first place I'll be visiting.

The lovely Leah from Addicted 2 Lip Balm agreed to answer some questions for me so read on to learn more.

When did you first become addicted to lip products?
I have used lip balms and glosses for as long as I can remember but it was when I started working at 14 years old I had the money to feed my addiction.

What are your top 3 lip products?
This is such a hard question! At the moment I would have to say Lanolips, Chapstick Naturals and DuWop Venom Gloss.

What lip product do you think everyone should try?
Everyone should try a lip scrub (I like The Lip Scrub by Sara Happ) and a plumper (like DuWop Venom). Results will vary between people but your lips will be nice and smooth. I also think people should persist until they find a lip balm that is perfect for “their lips” because peoples lips and tastes are so different!

What products do you recommend for men?
I think men should use a lip scrub like Shizen Sugar Lip Scrub, even if they can use it once a fortnight it will make a difference. They should also use a lip balm every day with SPF I would recommend Anthony Logistic. Their lips will be so much more inviting if they are soft!

What’s the best tasting lip product you’ve tried?
Morgan Annie lip scrubs would have to be the best tasting. But when it comes to smell Botani wins hands down. It’s a yummy sweet vanilla scent that is truly divine. Urban Rituelle Beachcomber Lip Glamour in Ruby Mango has a lovely fresh mango fragrance. Smith’s Rosebud in Mocha Rose is also very nice.

What products do you never leave home without?
I never leave home without a tube of tinted Lanolips (Rose is my favourite), Dr Bronner organic lip balm, DuWop Lip Venom and Suvana Bio Gloss (it has a nice shimmer that you can wear alone or over any lipstick or balm). If I’m going to be away for more than a few days I always take a lip scrub and a pot of Shizen lip conditioner.

When did you start Addicted 2 Lip Balm and what were the reasons you started it?
I started Addicted 2 Lip Balm in 2009 because I was so frustrated at the lack of variety and accessibility to lip care products. I was forever searching for something different. My dream has always been to have a “one stop shop” for lip care.

What has been your proudest moment since you started Addicted 2 Lip Balm?
I am always proud when customers tell me how much they love Addicted 2 Lip Balm. I also feel proud when editors ring and ask for my advice and opinion on lip care and lip care product.

Any new and exciting products you can tell us about?
