3. The Body Shop:
My personal favourite when it comes to chapsticks has always been The Body Shop Vitamin E Lip Care Stick. Its non-scented, and maintains just the right amount of moisture. I’ve always liked nude shades, and this chapstick keeps my lips simple yet appealing to look at. Also, the fact that it comes with SPF protection makes it so much better for regular use, especially because I use it during summers too.
Not-tinted, non-shimmer and shine free, L’occtaine’s Ultra Rich Shea Butter Lip Balm focusses at doing only what its meant to do, and does it in the best possible way. Enriched with natural ingredients that restore the softness and suppleness to one’s lips, this product will be something you wouldn’t mind paying for; it lasts much longer on one’s lips than other chapsticks, and is extremely light and moisturising.
It has always been a sought-after brand when it comes to buying beauty products. Therefore, I was never really apprehensive when I picked up its simple Lip Balm.
Available in simple tube packaging and in three different colours, it comes with SPF 15, as well as UVA and UVB protection.
Keihl’s lip balm hydrates, soothes and nourishes one’s lips like no other, and Blabbercat loves its effectiveness and simplicity.
