There's nothing better than the feeling of a smooth, luscious balm as it glides across your parched lips, imparting mega moisture. Conversely, if you've ever been caught, well, anywhere without your trusty lip conditioner, you know the pain and discomfort that a chapped pout can cause. And ever tried putting a gorgeous, fruit-pigmented hue on a parched pucker? Trust me, it's not pretty.
At this point you're likely lacing up your boots, ready to bolt to the nearest drugstore to purchase the first balm in sight. But before you do—STOP—and read the rest of this article! Did you know that many traditional, mass-produced lip products contain petroleum jelly and mineral oil? While, initially it may feel like these formulas are moisturizing, they're not! What's actually happening is that the mineral oil is creating a plastic-like coating on your pout. So unless you want to suffocate your lips, I'd recommend a natural option.
With their earth-grown ingredients, proper nourishing powers, and heavenly scents, these natural lip balms really stood out, and don't worry; there's something for everyone: vegan options, one for beeswax lovers, plus a DIY recipe. So you can kiss dry lips goodbye once and for all!
