Holy grail lip balm alert!
Ever since my first time around doing seasonal retail at Bath & Body Works in college, when I discovered the C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Shines and balm, I've been a bit obsessed with them on again/off again for a good while.
This lip balm stick is my favorite of all balm sticks, and unlike others in the Mentha line, it's not shiny. It goes on very moisturizing, comforting, and oh so wonderfully minty. Not like punch you in the face minty, but sweet kiss of "aaahhh.."
It's also, obviously, pretty easy when on the go or traveling. After a long flight when my lips are dry and my breath debatable, this stuff becomes fairly Holy Grail-like. Plus, there's something so refreshing and comforting about mint at the end of a long haul.
It's just the right balance of coconut oils, shea butter, and peppermint oil so it's not super greasy like Chapstick brand or useless like the Maybelline Baby Lips. And it'll set you back about $8.
You can find it on C.O. Bigelow's site or in Bath & Body Works stores.
