You know what’s really minor but a major pain? Chapped lips. They can be so uncomfortable: the flaky skin patches, the lip splitting and bleeding. Gruesome, I know. I tend to be very picky about my lip balms. Certain lip balms tend to cause breakouts around my lip line. I wasn’t surprised when I discovered that these typical lip balms are filled with pore-clogging ingredients and chemicals. So, in order to soothe dry lips without any threat of a breakout, I was on the lookout for the best brands that are natural and still do the job. Luckily i found my 3 must have lip balms for dry lips! Read on…
