Winter Lip Products (& an update)

I know I've talked incessantly about my sensitive skin, and how it gets dry in the winter, and my love of all lip products, blah, blah, blah. Well I figured I'd just wrap it all into one and talk about ALL the lip products I obsess over this time of year so it would all be in one place. You're welcome :)

EOS Smooth Sphere  
I love these year round. They're easy to apply, taste great, and easy to find if you throw one in your purse. Another plus - you can wear them under lipstick or lip gloss. Love.




KORRES Lip Butter 
These are moisturizing AND they each have a little bit of color to them. I love these in the winter because you can put some on and not have to worry about putting any other lip product on top of it.





Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Balms 
I know I just mentioned this so to sum up - I like this for the same reason as the KORRES Lip Butter, because it has a tint to it. (And the tingly feeling with this one. I like that, too.)





 Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Soothing Lip Balm
This is a good one to put on before bed since because of the thicker consistency.



 Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment
Ok, these are expensive, I'm the first to admit that - but so good and SO worth it. They taste amazing and they work so well. Great product. There's gift sets out right now for Christmas if you're looking for a better deal. (Like this, and this, and this. I'm just saying.)



Bobbi Brown Glitter Lip Balm
I don't have the palette, I have an individual one I just bought recently at a Cosmetics Company Outlet, but I don't see them on the Bobbi Brown website anymore, but this palette is still available if you want it. Anyway. Glitter. Lip Balm. Come on, you know I had to.


Ok, so there's a quick recap of all my favorite lip products and treatments, all in one. What are your favorites this time of year?

Update:
(If you have no idea what I'm talking about, see this post.)
I've gotten a few questions and comments about how I'm doing so I figured I'd throw in a quick update. If you follow me on Twitter, you probably already know, but I saw my new specialist (neurologist who specializes in MS) on Tuesday and she got me started on a 3-day steroid infusion treatment, and hopes to have me on Tysabri in 2-4 weeks. (Tysabri treats MS and Crohn's so yeah, will definitely be good for me if it works out ok!)  There are some possible side effects with it, mainly an infection you can develop, but that will be closely monitored. I really like the new doctor and am thrilled she got me started on something immediately! Today is the last of the 3 days for the steroids. It should give me some immediate relief with my symptoms so that'll be great. I have to go to the office and sit in the infusion room for an hour because the steroids are administered by IV. The Tysabri will be the same way, except it takes 2 hours. Not the most fun, but they have a really nice set up. You get a leather recliner to sit in with blankets and pillows, there's a flat screen TV to watch, a fridge full of cold drinks and a Keurig with coffee if you want that, snacks, and there's Wi-Fi so you can bring your laptop or whatever. I go with my BlackBerry, iPod and a couple of magazines but it still gets a little boring, so I welcome entertainment at around 2pm my time if you're around :)
Well that was a little longer than I anticipated but I wanted to let you know what's going on. Thank you so much for all your comments and support, you have no idea how much it means to me.

I went to lunch one time with my mum one of her dreadful co-workers and her daughter... I got out my sphere to put on my chapstick and her exact words were "what the hell is that do you think you're cool or something" no actually i`m trying to keep my lips from looking like yours lol. I love Fresh Sugar as well!

PS I am glad to hear that you have found a great doctor. At least it'll bring a start from you. I know a few people who are going through what you are. I can give you their number or email if you'd want. I know sometimes it's better to talk to someone who understands what you're going through.

At Christmastime, the Body Shop does a cranberry lip balm that I'm ADDICTED to. I buy in bulk and use them all year.

I'm glad to hear that you're trying a new treatment and a new doctor. Hopefully everything works out for you, my dear -- you know I'm always around if you need anything!

I love all of these, especially the Bobbi Brown. Of course, i knew you weren't feeling well, but didn't know that you have MS. I am thrilled to hear that you like your doctor so hopefully, you'll see results from the meds ASAP. Sending you virtual hugs.
