It's lip balm season, man. My pucker is all cracked, all the time. I like to fill my coat pockets and my bags with various lip soothers, and I've found two favorites this winter. Crazy Rumors has a "Brew" line of hot-tea inspired balms ($4 each, pictured) -- it includes Peppermint Lemongrass, Orange Bergamot, Apple Spice and Spiced Chai. I know, fancy, right?! Each one not only soothes your lips, but also kinda makes you feel like you're treating yourself to a deliciously warm beverage. Caffeine lovers, they also have a coffee line, "Perk" -- and all of their products are made with natural, vegan-friendly ingredients. Snag a set of 4 for $15. We think Wills and Kate would approve.
When you need a little more moisture power, Crabtree & Evelyn's new Ultra-Moisturizing Butters ($7.50 each) do the trick. With four types of butters (shea, cocoa, illipe and kokum), plus mango oil, beeswax and other botanical ingredients -- they seal in some serious soothing. Plus, if you dab some lightly over your lipstick, it'll help lock in the color. Try Vanilla Creme Brule, Creme de Menthe or Citron Creme & Honey. Doesn't it just sound like a bakery menu? Yum!
