I don’t use lip balm. Does that shock you?
It shouldn’t. It’s the reason why I hardly ever talk about lip balm here on my blog. I don’t believe in it, but then I don’t believe in a lot of things, like delusional people, romance novels and organic food.
But I don’t deny that there are times when you need a lip balm. When your lips feel chapped, the worst thing you can do is pick at the dry flaky skin, and lick your lips. In those (rare) situations, I turn to a product I’ve kept on hand for this purpose.
It’s the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF15 which I own in Rose. I’ve had this one for a while to be honest, and I picked it up at Sephora one day, a long while ago, because I was curious. The retail price was RM65 back then (now RM84) which puts a huge ding in your wallet for something as inconsequential as a lip balm, but I just had to try it la… you know how it is right? Scratch that itch and it’ll go away.
Except in my case, I think it’s been worth it. Sure, I could get maybe 10 lip balms for that price if I were to hop over to a pharmacy, but where’s the fun in that eh? 😉
