Lip balm is the ultimate beauty gateway drug. You start out with lip balm, picking up every flavor imaginable along the way. Banana lip balm? Check. Chocolate lip balm? Double check. Then you start picking up tinted lip balms here and there and before you know it, you have 25 tinted balms that all give you the perfect “YLBB” (your lips but better) look because you can’t help yourself. The last stop on this lip balm train is exfoliation. You can wear lip balm all damn day, it still doesn’t mean you’ll have smooth, baby soft lips. You need a little help to get you there and these exfoliators are just what you need. Honestly, I still get a little giddy when I see a new one come out. I have to have it! I’m so obsessed, I’ve started making my own for fun, I’m a nerd.
With all of that said, there’s a line that completely understands our obsession with lip balm and lips in general; For Goodness Grape. Lisa, aka the Lip Balm Queen and founder, created the line because she loves lip balm and is passionate about natural ingredients. She started out on Etsy and sold over 8,000 items there but wanted to reach more people so she started her own website. Her Lip Survival Collection for Healthy Lips is a great way to see what For Goodness Grape is all about.
