How many times a day do you apply lip balm? And how many lip balms do you lose every month? Yes, it is the sad truth lip balms are not loved by us, they are lost somewhere in our purse or inside a pocket and only retrieved when our lips are achingly dry, however, Book f27 is on a mission to bring back the balm and its importance by focusing on the top three products out there that have been reviewed and tried by our team ahead of the Holy month of Ramadan.
Starting with the most famous one; everyone, meet Glossier’s balm Dotcom. Retailing at Dhs 45 it is an Instagram star that actually works wonders thanks to its formula that contains castor seed oil, beeswax, and lanolin making it easy to spread on extra-cracked lips. The beautiful packaging and the subtle shades allow it to be used on your cheeks as a highlighter and let’s agree that Glossier rarely gets it wrong so go online and order yours now!Next on our list is Drunk Elephant’s Lippe balm that retails at Dhs 67 and can be bought from their website. Drunk Elephant is known for its non-toxic approach that focuses on clean actives and healthy extracts and their chubby lip balm embodies their vision by being a clean-clinical balm made out of marula oil, avocado oil, green tea leaf extract and algae that will leave your lips softer and plumper; the dream basically. Our third balm is celebrities best-kept secret, you will find it on every red carpet and in everyone’s purse, it is no other than Luca’s Papaw Ointment. The Australian balm has been around for over 100 years with a non-changed formula because it works! Made out of pharmaceutical-grade petroleum jelly and fermented papaw or Papaya the balm will moisturize and exfoliate your lips to give them a smooth finish look, perfect to add the lipstick color you want on top of it. And with a price of Dhs 30 it is worth stocking up on it as it can be used on eczema, burn and bug bites all over the body.
