10 Lip Balms To Love

10 Lip Balms To Love

A lip balm is the one product that you’re liable to find in every woman’s beauty bag. They can’remain forgotten during the summer and then become a must-have product during the winter months, when dry, chapped lips become the standout facial feature no one wants.

A recent study in the US revealed that women tend to apply lip balm around 30 times per day. We figure that number is on par with females here, especially when the really cold weather kicks in. Compared to its trendier cousins, lipstick and lip gloss, the balm is a more humble staple, but with all the products we put on our lips daily, it is a moisturising must that preps the pout for a smooth, even application of lip colour, so the power of the balm isn’t to be ignored.

Thankfully, balms have come a long way since simple Vaseline (it’s way classier nowadays), and there are many?on the market, to suit any budget.?From ones that impart gorgeous berry colours, to those that offer SPF; there’s no shortage when it comes to variety. So, whether you prefer cheap and cheerful (Maybelline does the job) or fancy splurging on a pricier option (Cr’me de la Mer, perhaps?), we have ten that are the business. Go forth, and apply to your lips?content. ?
