Welcome to Kendra's School of Lip Balm. Here, we will highlight the best in glossy, hydrating cosmetics for our smoochers. The school philosophy is: You should not have to pay a lot for healthy, glossy lips. Our case studies prove it; this philosophy is one that will not kiss off easily. The first lip balm that I ever fell madly in love with (trans: wanted to chew into little waxy bits and swallow entirely) was Bonne Bell's Passion Fruit Lipsmacker. You may be interested/amused/totally bored by the fact that, for the majority of my grade school years, I ran from the amorous advances of the grandson of the president of Bonne Bell. And to think I could have been the heiress to a fortune in Lipsmackers. My stars! What was I smoking!?!
More recently, I've been branching out to find that major cosmetic lines offer a lot of different formulas for le balm in all manner of clever containers. But how much of the cost is in the packaging? And are there methods animal-friendly? These are just a couple of the questions that this veritable bastion of balm asks when reviewing its product.
We invite you to tour the school. Use it as a learning lab. Let us know of your own experiences and experiments. Because applying lip balm may be the second best thing to do with your lips.
