I found another lovable lip balm! While I was trolling for deals at the KORRES Web site last weekend, I found the KORRES Shea Butter Hydrating Lip Balm ($6). It meets all of my lip balm criteria. It feels good, sticks around for awhile, and has no flavor. It's also free of chemicals you might not want to apply on your lips, especially if you apply lip balm frequently. No parabens, mineral oil, silicone, propylene glycol, or ethanolamine (a corrosive chemical that can severely irritate and burn the skin or cause a skin allergy).
What does it contain? Castor seed oil, soybean oil, linseed oil, carnauba wax, candelilla wax, shea butter extract, beeswax, sunflower seed oil, and rosemary leaf extract.
It's ideal for dry lips and "winter lips." This buttery lip balm melts on the lips and offers heavy-duty hydration. Shea Butter softens, conditions, and moisturizes, as do the other oils that make up the ingredients.
The Shea Butter Hydrating Lip Balm is available exclusively at the KORRES Web site and onboard Delta Airlines. In fact, the balm says it's made exclusively for Delta Airlines. Smart buyers!
