With the temperatures finally dropping on the West Coast, I am finding that my perennially dry lips are in need of some extra reinforcements. In turn, my lip balm wardrobe currently consists of three marvelous lip balms that, while equally effective, serve different purposes throughout my day.
Kindly scroll on for more details, images and the Bottom Line...
(1) Aerin Rose Lip Balm: This silky formula comes in a chic pot, renders a slightly shiny, whisper of pink tint and infuses the lips with a rose scented salve that locks moisture in for hours. Sophisticated, restrained and endlessly lovely, I envision this new release becoming an iconic product in the gorgeous Aerin line. Such a brilliant option for casual moments at home (see below) and on the go. Permanently in my purse as of late!
(2) Fresh Sugar Tulip: When you are in the mood for a more colorful statement, this sheer hot pink wonder (which also boasts SPF 15) offers lipstick-quality pigmentation, coupled with an ultra-moisturizing formula that one has come to expect from the venerable Fresh line. If the Aerin Rose Balm is the demure debutante, then Fresh Sugar Tulip is her edgy, sassy younger sister...so much fun ; )

Bottom Line: In light of the fact that lips look and feel their best when they receive moisture 24 hours a day, the concept of a lip balm wardrobe makes completely rational sense to me! I am enjoying these new additions to my lip balm menagerie and appreciate the fact that they each fulfill a different, yet vital, objective in my quest for around the clock hydration.
What are some of YOUR favorite lip balms?
