Even though it’s spring, the temperatures are still freezing in many parts of the country, unless you're in Dallas - what is it, like in the 80s?!
Whether you're fighting climbing, or falling temperatures, these face and lip balms originally covered by Vanity Fair dissolve skin-deep to hydrate and give you the shield you need.
Maya Chia the Super Blend Pressed Serum Brightening Moisture Concentrate: This organic orange-concentrate goodness is good on every part of the body! The subtly scented beauty balm is packed with highly effective ingredients, such as shelf-stable vitamin C, co-enzyme Q10, and super-botanicals that will really help to moisturize and protect. Remember not to rub, and allow the balm to melt in your hands a bit before pressing onto the skin. You will especially love applying this balm at bedtime, to calm the mind. ($105)
May Lindstrom the Blue Cocoon Beauty Balm Concentrate: Want to get mystical with your balm? Well, this is it, as if they have melted azure minerals into a jar! Its soothing, certified-organic, and wild-harvested properties, such camilla-seed oil and myrrh oil, along with other beautiful essential oils, sure does the trick, as if one were diving into Iceland’s Blue Lagoon. ($180)
Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm: Here’s mud in your eye! Balms come in all shapes and color, and this genius mud-facial-cleansing balm is rich with the brand’s famous Hungarian Moor Mud, and it really and truly draws out impurities and hydrates the skin, as if you were floating in Hungarian spa water. Heaven! ($110)
Ouli’s Ointment Original: This little, lightweight, all-purpose beauty friend is the perfect companion wherever you go, especially if you’re a naturalist. Made with extra-virgin olive oil, beeswax, and chamomile oil, it works gently—not only on your skin, but also on your hair (tame those flyaways!), as well as on babies’ bottoms. It’s the permanent purse buddy for all women. ($27)
Fresh Sugar Nourishing Lip Balm Advanced Therapy: Got dry, chapped lips, but nothing is working? This will—we guarantee it! With delicious ingredients such as sugar, mango butter, and sea-fennel extract, it literally recovers damaged, malnourished lips and turns them into plump (thanks, hyaluronic filling spheres!), moisturized, and defined lips! Beyond love, forever. ($30)
Glossier Balm Dotcom: Speaking of purse buddies, leave it to the cool and young gang at Glossier to create a universal salve that’s long-lasting and emollient. And if you’re not a fan of scented things, this is it. It’s odorless, cute, and simple. ($12)
