I wasn’t going to blog about this today, but woke up and had to share because we can all benefit from a good lip treatment find. Some of you may know how much love lip balms–it’s something I inherited from one of my late grandmothers and it’s pretty hard for me to resist trying out new things that catch my eye–the cuter the packaging, the better–or products that come highly recommended by others.
Back in the summer, I needed to meet a minimum while placing a Birchbox order and decided to add this Kiehl’s lip balm to my cart. It didn’t even get opened until a couple of months ago (again, this is what happens when you’re rotating between like 12 lip treatments) but when I did use it before bed one day, noticed a huge difference the next morning. As someone who has really dry skin (has it been worse for anyone else this year, despite it not being so cold outside?), I definitely noticed waking up with softer and significantly more hydrated lips. Same thing happened this morning…I’ve been going to sleep with overly chapped lips and even my trusty jojoba oil hadn’t been delivering as well as it usually does. The Kiehl’s balm has a creamy, Vaseline-like texture and only requires a tiny amount to get the job done. Oh, and it’s $7 and is available from Nordstrom, so it ships free. A done deal, if you ask me! :)
I’d love to know (and my storage space + wallet don’t want to know)…what are some of your go-to winter lip balms? I’m all ears!
