My lips like sugar

I probably have the worst lips in the world. It's dry, sensitive and 90% of the time, chapped. I don't really know what causes it. I have increased my water intake, I take supplements everyday and I hardly ever wear any lipstick. Ah, lipsticks are a total pain in the bum! Most of them seem to make my lips so chapped. It looks great for a day, and overnight I get pain and flaking lips that will last for several days. I have tried different brands but nothing seems to make my lips any better. Because of my sensitive lips, I opt for the pink Vaseline to give some colour to my lips. The only problem is that it doesn't last very long.

As I was searching for its cure on the internet, I found Body Shop Shea Lip Butter. It has beeswax which is good in treating and preventing dry, chapped lips. It comes in a cute small pot of 10ml and has a screw lid, making it a lot much easier to open. I honestly loathe vaselines packaging. One day, I spent ages trying to open it and because of that I had to use my teeth! ewww... Anyway, they have other flavours too such as mango, strawberry, coconut etc. I personally chose Shea lip butter because I thought it was more of a winter thing.

Upon using it, I am very impressed with it's rich texture. It also leaves my lips feeling soft and smooth almost all day. As it is rich and buttery, you don't have to put much on your lips (at least not when you are out as you would probably be walking in public with white lips!) making it lasts a fair amount of time. So far this is definitely my favourite. The packaging, size, texture and smell.. all good for me.

The only downside of this lip butter is that it does not contain SPF and it melts easily in warm temperature. So it is definitely not right for summer.
