"Does anyone have any lip balm?"
Too many times have we heard this question. And to be honest, no. We don’t. Not for you. Because it is not hygenic, aaaand we-don’t-want-to-risk-getting-cold-sores. There, we said it.
And according to leading aesthetic doctor Dr Esho, lips are the second most important facial feature. “First people notice the eyes, then it’s straight to the lips,” he says. “That’s why it’s not only important to take care of your lips, but also feel confident about them.”
So, whether you’ve reached the final twist of your favourite lip balm, you’re looking for a formula that puts chapped lips to bed once or if you, yourself are a beastly, balm borrower, it’s time to treat those lips.
