{10.24.08} Skin Care

  • The first lip balms were made from earwax.

When the temperature starts to dip, lip balm quickly becomes a seasonal necessity that you should be carrying into the new year. And while you could drop a buck on a tube of Chapstick, the best balms are packed with natural healers and moisturizers, not to mention fresh minty tastes. And buying quality means you won't have to keep swiping it on every ten minutes.
