I've always been a fan of lip balms and lip glosses. I will choose them over lipstick any day of the week. I learned the hard way, though, that all lip balms are not created equal. As much Chapstick or Burts Bees as you slather on, your lips are never actually healing or retaining moisture. Instead, the drying agents included in these balms, the same balms that claim to hydrate and nourish your lips, are actually drying them out further and creating a viscous cycle of reapplication.
So I started buying brands that were more expensive. No more one dollar Blistex or Chapstick, I splurged on EOS and Nivea brands. Unfortunately for me, those brands contain chemicals and drying agents as well! There are actually lip balms on the market that sell for $20 (Yes, $20) that are full of chemicals that dry out your lips. (See this comparison.)
But worry no more! I've found something that actually works!!! Natural ingredients that actually hydrate and nourish your lips. No drying agents or alcohol in this balm. No mad need to reapply over and over and over without ever feeling soft, moisturized lips. Fun flavors and scents sold at a budget price. It doesn't get much better than this!
