Burt's Bees Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil
The other day I was running out of my apartment to meet a friend. I realized after about 10 minutes that I forgot my lipgloss and chapstick. It was such an uncomfortable feeling, especially for someone with dry skin and pale lips like mine. I was once asked a question... if you could only own one piece of makeup what would it be? Lip gloss! Yes, hands down lip gloss. I feel and look so naked without the stuff.
So, during the winter I am constantly applying lip gloss, which obviously is not the most moisturizing thing to apply to chapped lips. It really just makes your lips even more chapped. I recently discovered a great lip balm that is moisturizing, adds a tinge of color to your lips, very affordable, and contains good for you ingredients. An item I TRY to never leave home without these days is the Burt's Bees Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil. The lip balm comes in a chapstick kind of tube, so you don't have to worry about the icky germs that may live in pots of gloss or balm. The balm is really smooth and moisturizing. The pomegranate oil is antioxidant packed and tastes so good.
Pomegranate Oil: Pomegranate fruit extract, from the tree Punica granatum, contains several polyphenols and anthocyanidins (pigment that gives certain fruits their dark red colors), which are highly antioxidant, protecting hair and skin from environmental stress.
Another thing I love about this balm is that it adds a hint of berry pink color. Perfect for pale lips like mine. The best thing about this balm is that it costs about $3. You can treat yourself to a balm per handbag, so you seriously never leave home without it!
