Can’t Live Without: Lip Balm

 

I hate the feeling of dry lips. Really, really hate it. And our tendency to lick them in a helpless attempt to make the dryness goes away, only makes it worse. That’s why I can’t live without lip balm! I think of them as Gremlins that multiply all over, so there is always one on my office table, a few on my vanity, one on my bedside table, and, of course, 2 or 3 more in my cosmetic bag.

Over the years, I learned that the best ones not only hydrate but also treat the lip area and also have a hint of colour to replace a regular lipstick (especial criteria for those living in my bag). Among my favourites are Fresh Sugar (that I’ve already talked about),  Kiss Me from Philosophy (not available in the UK) and Avon Anew Plumping Lip Conditioner, that I religiously apply every night. Thanks to it I never wake up with dried lips, plus, it contains retinol, so it’s perfect to renew the skin and avoid the signs of ageing (yes, it sucks seeing your lips thinning out over the years). There’s also the classic ChapStick, so cheap and so good…

Here in the UK, I found Dr. PawPaw Original Balm absolutely incredible and I also love Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Tinted Lip Balm with SPF 15. Mine is Dark Chocolate & Cherry and gives that lovely soft red tone.  That being said, I’m forever in search for new balms and can’t resist stocking them up. I guess I’m addicted to that comforting feeling of hydration…
