As you can see the International version is much more simple in ingredients. The Aussie version is more of a traditional lip balm and has a waxier texture, the American version is a little greasier and seems a bit more innovative to me.

Have you tried one, or both formulas? If so, which do you prefer? I really like both, but I think I prefer the American version of Baby Lips, but only marginally.


  1. I have all of the american versions, and I don't like the majority of them (they dry out my lips like crazy!). I wonder if I would like the international version better...

    1. Maybe, they're pretty different, but both are decently moisturizing. Sorry to hear the American versions don't work out for you. D:

  2. Wow I didn't realize there was a difference I wonder why?
