Always keeping a lip balm within reach is one beauty commandment we have no plans on breaking. No one should suffer from dry, chapped lips any time of day. That said, storing that moisturizing tube (or tin) in all our bags and pouches has slowly turned lip balm into somewhat of a go-to for skincare emergencies. From dry patches, rashes, crusty cuticles to stuck zippers, these pucker saviors have gone through it all for us. So take our word for it and look for your ultimate multi-purpose balm. Need ideas?
