What’s worse than chapped lips? Dry and uncomfortable, chapped lips can even lead to split lips. Unfortunately, the lips are prepared to crack. The lips don’t have sweat glands, and if your salivary glands are running dry, dry lips might be just around the corner.
Fortunately, we found a solution in the form of lip balm; No doubt you’ve littered a few around your room, in the trash drawer, or in your purse, but why not get the best?
How about Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Moisturizing Lip Balm?
Burt’s Bees lip balm has been preventing chapped lips since 1991 and is made from vitamin E and natural beeswax. It does not contain parabens, phthalates, petrolatum or sodium lauryl sulfate and is made from a mixture of beeswax and coconut oil with peppermint and rosemary.
Burt’s Bees is even part of Terracycle, so empty lip balms can be sent back and turned into something new. With over ten flavors, from original to vanilla pod, honey or watermelon, there is a lip balm for everyone.
Burt’s Bees Balm has a 4.8 out of 5 stars on Amazon and over 65,000 reviews. It is so good. There are others who call it the “holy grail” of lip balms that are capable of freshening your lips while allowing air to pass through. Users also praise it for its “balsamic” feel, saying that while other products feel shiny, this one just works like a charm.
For this reason, it is only right that this gets our top lip care recommendation. You probably already have one in your purse.
