Strangely, I didn’t ever get into lip balms until I was in my late 30’s. After my Caesarean procedure and breast-feeding left my lips parched and cracked, I discovered the joy and relief (and OK I admit the addictive power) of lip balms.
Whether you like yours classic or fancy, tinted or clear, here’s my top 5 lip salves to pamper your pout and to give you the softest, most kissable lips ever.
Sisley Nutritive Lip Balm $85.00
The top shelf version of a classic, I defy anyone who doesn’t form an instant love for this exquisite pot of comfort. The subtle rose scent and chic heavy glass pot all add to the self care experience. The French do it better!
