Unlike other skincare, Lip Balm is something you ingesting almost immediately after you apply. So make sure you choose the product that you feel happy to eat ! WTH! Sounds like horror , right? We eat our Lip Balm? You still in denial? Come on who still denying they never taste a tooth paste before? Same goes to Lip Balm too.
There thousands of Lip Balm brand on shelf. I am sure all of us are spoil with choices. Some of us scratching head to choose the right one suit to your lip condition. Well...I list some simple guide for you to select your next Lip Balm.
Guide to Choose Lip Balm
If you prefer to use fingers dab then jar or tube Lip Balm is your choice. As for me , I prefer to glide away on my Lip, so I go for stick.
2. Smells and Flavor
While some of you may turn off with anything aromatic but not me. I personally love fruity sweet smells for my Lip Balm.
3. Multi-Tasking Lip Balm
I prefer Lip Balm with SPF and key nourishing ingredients to assist in hydrating and moisturizing my pout. While if it has minty flavor is way better because it can help to freshen up my breathe too. Another factor I personally will look at is the Tint to give that natural bitten look. Yeoooowww!!!!
For those who are dealing with extremely dry , cracked and peeling or chapped lips, just get yourself the medicated balm that sooth and treat the problem
5. Lip Balm with Benefits
I would suggest to go for Lip Balm with high grade oils such as Olive Oil, Avocado Oil, Argan Oil, Vitamin E which will sooth and moisturize your pout without any greasy feeling. Make sure to choose something contains at least SPF 15 and free of parabens.
