Whenever I think of chapped lips, I remember an old advertisement where a girl and a guy are having a conversation by passing notes even though they are sitting in front of each other as their lips are chapped. Then, comes the all-rescuing lip balm and their communication problem goes poof !
Chapped lips are anyone’s worst nightmare, not only do they look shabby, eating anything remotely spicy feels as if they are on fire and the fact that I am an “Andhraite” does not help though I am quite a “lallu Andhraite.” People assume that just because I am from Andhra, I can gobble up green chillies like peanuts. The worst is when I start jumping around with tears trickling down my face, runny nose, and muttering “water, water” and I get “the look” from them accusing me of “non-Andhra behaviour.” I just can’t eat spicy food and I usually use chapped lips as an excuse in order to save face 😛
But this awesome lip balm has taken away my grand excuse, but I am not complaining. I have accepted it that I am doomed to be ridiculed for being the “lallu Andhraite” for life (sigh). Anyway, this is the best lip balm I have ever used. It moisturises well and keeps the lips soft and well hydrated throughout the day. Being colourless, you can use it as a base for your lipstick as well.
