From the maybelline website:

- Vitamin Complex delivering powerful anti-oxidants.
- SPF 20 for protection against harmful UV rays.

First off the obvious how cute is the packaging? The colours are soooo cute and pretty. Love it!!!!!

I really like the baby lips, it's moisturising, goes on really smooth and looks glossy when you apply it. They smell okay (the menthol one smells like vicks) and I find them to be longer lasting than normal lip balms given your not eating or drinking (they last for about 1-2 hours). The menthol flavour has that tingling feeling which I enjoy but if you don't like the tingling feeling then the fruit flavours are the way to go. 

It's winter here in Australia, that time of year when my lips get EXTREMELY dry and cracked. It's been approximately 4 weeks since I've been using the menthol baby lips (so I can get rid of it because I hate the smell) and it's made some improvement to my lips. My lips get dry from time to time but they haven't cracked since using the baby lips. When I first started using the baby lips I'd have to reapply every few hours but now I only have to reapply 2-3 times a day. 

One main flaw is the lip balm taste and we all know what I'm talking about. So if you don't like that lip balm taste DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. If your lips are flaky, the lip balm doesn't really help. 

Overall it's a really good lip balm. The baby lips make my lips feel soft and less dry without constant reapplication and the formula isn't waxy just nice and smooth. 

- Taste 
- Artificial smell
- They're not tinted like the baby lips in USA  

- SPF 20 
- Long lasting (for a lip balm)
- Moisturising
- Smooth application
- Glossy
- Affordable

Rating: 3.5/5

Where and how much: Priceline - $3.99, chemist warehouse - $3.39, Kmart, Target - $3.95, Big W and basically anywhere that sells maybelline

Which is your favourite flavour? 


  1. That's pretty much how the packaging looks like too here in Asia. I wonder why we don't have the ones with transparent caps though, and I've never seen any video reviews of Baby Lips' Asian/Australian version
    Anyways my sister uses this brand & she loves it a lot. She has Smoothing Cherry and Antioxidant Berry

  2. i'm also from australia and i really like the smoothing cherry. it was the first baby lips that i bought and i loved it. so i guess that the smoothing cherry is my favourite flavour

    1. I don't even remember which I bought first I just remember loving the formula that I just continued to collect them. My favourite is probably the berry and mango.

  3. my favourites are the smoothing cherry i use that during the day and at the menthol for when i wake up and before i sleep

    1. yeah same here but i use the menthol most in winter although the smell

Review: Dettol Revitalise Antibacterial Hand Wash with Raspberry and Pomegranate

Today I'll be doing a review on a product concerning personal hygiene. We all know that in winter people are more susceptible to the flu and colds, especially if you haven't had a flu shot (like me...). So in order to lower chances of catching a cold, hand hygiene is vital. Because a lot of the time hands are doing all the work germs can spread very fast, therefore to prevent the spread of germs, soap is one of the easiest ways to ensure you're not spreading germs to family and friends. 

I had the opportunity to try a Dettol product new to the market. Dettol has a number of versions of their new hand washes so there will most likely be one for you. They include; Delight with Honey & Apricot, Replenish with Shea Butter & Rose Water and of course revitalise with Raspberry and Pomegranate. 

Dettol's Revitalise Antibacterial Hand Wash with Raspberry and Pomegranate has the most beautiful fruity scent. Honestly is smells EXACTLY like raspberry and pomegranate, it is d…

Review: Optiva Aqua-Capture Serum and Nourishing Night Cream

So firstly my skin type is dry/normal. I'm prone to hormonal breakouts. Every time I get a pimple it scars whether or not I've popped it (gross I know). So my main issue are my scars. But like I mentioned I do have somewhat dry skin and I really do feel like these have helped with my dry patches and preventing my skin from flaking. 

1. Optiva Aqua-Capture Serum 
30ml $24

The serum strengthens the skin barrier in just two weeks improving its tolerance for the long term. Specially formulated to offer an immediate comforting and calming effect.

Overall I think this is a really nice serum, but honestly I'm not really a serum girl and this product hasn't converted me. I feel like it's an unnecessary step. But if…
