4 of my winter best friends for preventing and treating chapped, sore lips…
korres lip butter in jasmine // this is a recent purchase but i already bought another one to keep in my purse. the korres lip butters are a cult item because they are such nice lip balms, but also the colors are so beautiful. jasmine looks quite peachy in the pot, but leaves a milky pink sheen on the lips. i like it when my lips look a little lighter than they usually do, so this is perfect. it’s lip balm, but it makes me feel like i have a little bit of something on my lips.
shea moisture coconut & shea butter lip balm // i picked this up at target because it was right by the checkout and looked really cute – full disclosure. and i actually love it because it is a balm but shows up quite glossy on the lips. it lasts for a long time and imparts a nice amount of moisture. and yes, it’s really cute!
nuxe reve de miel // i’ve had this one since last winter and am still making my way to the bottom of the pot! this is a love-it-or-hate-it item for a lot of people, but i’m on the love side. i like that it exfoliates while adding a sort of hydration mask to your lips. it shows up matte so i wear this during the day or at night, but mostly at night since i like to really layer it up. after my trip to london my lips were intolerably chapped and no amount of blistex could save them. unsurprisingly this helped over night, and i think it is because it both exfoliated and healed, and so that just reiterated my love and faith in this product.
glossier coconut balm dotcom // i got the coconut version of the cult balm dotcom last spring and enjoyed it, but it has really become a staple over the past 2-3 months. like the nuxe, i really slap this on at night and let it soak in, but i like to apply it lightly during the day as well. i do feel that the coconut is more moisturizing than the original and it has a little bit of a meltier consistency, like coconut oil does. i’m pretty sure these qualities are in my head as there aren’t any actual coconut ingredients in the formula, but it really does feel different!
