That chill in the air means it’s time to snuggle. Yay, snuggling. Hot cocoa, warm sweaters, crunchy leaves, watching football on the couch, all while huddled up with Honey. Of course you’ll want your lips to be kissably soft for all that snuggling, so this is the time to pick up some good lip balm that will get you through the next two seasons. No need to think too hard about it; head right over to Saks, Neiman’s, Nordstrom, or the nearest Kiehl’s store, and get yourself a tube of Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1.
It costs $7.50. That is more than you’d pay for Chapstick. You will forgive yourself. Why? Because hands — or lips — down, this lip balm is the best lip balm you will ever buy. Its ingredients include wheat germ oil and aloe, it goes on smoothly without that waxy feeling, it contains sunscreen and protects your lips from the elements, and just the lightest layer provides a base for some of those lipsticks (though not the all-day kind) that tend to dry out your lips.
A heavier layer at bedtime softens your lips while you sleep. It also soothes dry cuticles, heals small cuts, and in a pinch, can be used to smooth and finish your brows. You’ll be so well-groomed, the kisses will be endless. When you think of it that way, $7.50 is kind of a bargain.
