Since a random allergic reaction to a lip balm last year, my lips have been very sensitive to many different products, and I found that the best way to take care of them was to rotate my treatments. If I used one for more than a few nights in a row, the flakiness and cracking would return.
So since I have quite the arsenal of lip balms, I thought I'd share which I've been reaching for over and over.
First I'll mention the product which no doubt has fixed my lips - I've been using this every night since I got it a couple weeks ago with no need to rotate to another product. It is the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask. I was nervous about it at first because I was starting to think I was reacting to something in more natural lip balms, but this immediately softened and healed my lips. I love the thickness of it because I put it on at night and can still feel it on my lips in the morning.
Another favorite is the Nuxe Reve de Miel Ultra Nourishing Lip Balm. I was surprised by the consistency the first time I put this on. It's a very thick yet soft balm with a matte finish. This is one that if I layer it on too many nights in a row my lips will start to crack, but I love using it in the morning before I put lipstick on.
If my lips are feeling dry or irritated but not necessarily flakey or chapped, I've been reaching for the Lush Chocolate Whipstick Lip Balm. It's quite a solid balm, but it smells amazing, and you only need a tiny bit to make your lips feel hydrated again.
What are your favorite lip treatments/balms?
