Is lip balm made from horse sperm?
Lip balm is more denser then lip gloss, in lip balm there isn't really any color and if it has any color is is very little. Lip gloss is much more liquid then lip balm but it also has pigments. Lip gloss is good for your lips because if it has vitamin e it smooth your lips but lip balm can do this and more. Lip balm has many more ingredients like: Shae butter, cocoa butter, beeswax, and some oil for the sent. So NO, lip balm and lip gloss is not the same!!!
Lip balm can be made of different things depending on the brand. But I can give you a few tips. If you want all natural, go with L'Occitanetm. It only uses shea butter! If you want NO WHERE NEAR NATURAL, go with Chapsticktm, because there is NOTHING natural in that lip balm. I suggest going with L'Occitanetm. If you want a cheaper selection, go with Soft Lipstm. All lip balms have rights reserved. No permission to copy lip balm names.
The most expensive lip balm must be that from the 'Clinique' brand. I have been doing research on lip balm and bought myself every single lip balm I could find in the village I live in. I bough for nearly EUR 200 worth of different lip balms for this research and considering the average lip balm costs around EUR 2 to 3 I bought quite a number of different lip balms. The one I almost didn't buy was this 'Clinique' lip balm. Because of the cost. In the end this Clinique lip balm is just another lip balm but it comes in a very fancy holder. It is hard to ratify the cost of this lip balm considering the alternatives and their prices. Price is around EUR 35,- for one lip balm of 3,6 gram. Most lip balm carry 4,8 gram so it is not only the most expensive to buy but you also get less product than most other suppliers.
Hydrating lip balm is lip balm that will hydrate your lips when you put it on. A common misconception, however, is that hydrating lip balm is lip balm that can also be used to hydrate yourself. This has led to many people having sour tastes in their mouth and being no more hydrated than when they started, therefore it's not recommended to use it for this latter purpose.
They serve different purposes. Lip balm is used to soothe and soften lips, while lip gloss is used to give lips color and shine. One is medicinal and the other is cosmetic. Some people wear lip gloss over lib balm but depending on your lip balm/gloss this may or may not work. You can also get lip balm that is tinted which can give you a subtle gloss effect.
