This time of year, especially if you run outdoors in the cold air, it’s tough to keep your lips from getting dry and chapped. I’m certainly a bit of a lip balm addict, and I make sure I always have a tube close at hand. My best-loved lip soother is Un-Petroleum lip balm from Alba Botanica, a division of body care company Avalon Natural Products. With natural plant extracts and oils, vitamin E and SPF 18 sun protection, Un-Petroleum keeps my lips supple and safe from sun damage. The flavors – tangerine, cherry and vanilla – are perfectly blended but not at all over-bearing or perfume-y. Grab a tube today (I buy mine at Whole Foods) and you’ll quickly understand why Un-Petroleum is my undeniable favorite!
