Lip Balm (along with hand cream) is probably one of the most basic (and unsung) skin care essentials. I mean, I can't imagine going through a whole day without these in my bag. That said, I always have a tube of lip balm in the house especially the places I frequently visit: near my bedside, in the bathroom, in my Mom's room, etc. If I don't have any handy, I get all uneasy and keep licking/pursing my lips together which results to -- you guessed it -- dry and cracked lips. Yuck!
So understandably, I have my preferences when it comes to the "perfect" lip balm: non-sticky, gentle/hypoallergenic, peppermint-flavored, with SPF (I can let this slide depending on how much I love the formula), moisturizing, and must not take forever to settle.
I've been pretty happy with my Hurraw Lip Balm from Cutieverse and been loyal to it for over 2 years, but now that I'm running out I'm willing to try others that I have in my stash. I've accumulated quite a handful from brands and the one that piqued my interest this time is the Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm.
The original. The best. And still your favorite. Our must-have balms have been playing in purses and pockets since 1991. Beeswax conditions skin, while antioxidant Vitamin E moisturizes. A final hint of Peppermint Oil provides that one-of-a-kind refreshing tingle. The result? Smooth, supple lips everyone will be buzzing about.
