I think it’s safe to say that I’m addicted to lip balm. I always have one within arm’s reach, whether I’m in my office, in the kitchen, in bed or on the go. I’ve never been discriminatory when it comes to lip balm, so the brands I use range from Nivea and Carmex to Kiehl’s and Charlotte Tilbury, but Glossier changed all of that when I tried the Balm Dotcom a while back. Even though the original (unscented) version exceeded all of my expectations, I was dying to try the Coconut version for SO long but it’s been sold out forever. So when it was available again, I ordered 6—yes, 6—and now I have this gem in my bag, bathroom, nighttable, kitchen and desk (and one extra for when my supply starts to get low).
Why is it so good, you ask? Obviously it does an amazing job at hydrating my lips. It also sticks around so I don’t have to apply it every 10 minutes. But best of all, it’s designed for multipurpose use, so I can dab it on to smooth rough, dry cuticles (and any other dry skin), use it as a highlighter in a pinch, or even attempt to create a glossy eye look. Aside from all of this, I LOVE a good coconut scent/flavor, so that’s the icing on the cake.
Are you addicted to lip balm, too? If so, what’s your fave?
