Beauty expert Riddhi speaks about & reviews the best lip balms available in the market. which one is your favorite?
With the dry season closing in on us, our chapped lips will definitely need some nice lip balm to care for them, right? Our busy schedules call for hours of traveling in the dust and little do we know that lips, the most tender part of our face, lose their moisture in this pollution and turn dry and chapped. So you see, we MUST get ourselves a perfect lip balm to make sure our lips stay hydrated and look soft and supple. But a simple search on Amazon for lip balms yields at least a hundred results and it becomes difficult to decide which one we should choose. That is why I have come up with this list of lip balms that I would recommend for you to buy and you can weigh in the pros and cons and purchase the one that suits you the most!
Some expert tip: Don't splurge on your lip balm because trust me, a lot of amazing ones are available in the market at a low cost. Also, since lip balms are for daily use and we need a steady supply of them, it is more economical to decide on an affordable one and buy 2 or 3 packs at a time as Amazon gives an offer if you buy them like that.
