Chapped lips are a huge issue for me, no matter the season. Dry, cracking, bleeding lips are not a good base for any lip product, so I have to work very hard to keep my lips in good shape. I’ve tried so many balms and glosses, but these are my current favorite.
These glosses are very thick with just a hint of color. They aren’t sticky and provide wonderful hydration for my lips. The formula is very smooth, with just a hint of a minty, cooling feeling when first applied. I love how shiny they make my lips!
I like to keep one of these on my nightstand to apply at night before bed. When I wake in the morning, I can usually still feel some of the balm on my lips. I also keep one in my purse to use as a base for lip formulas that tend to be drying, such as stains.
