I am not a huge fan of lip balms, probably because I don't get chapped lips that often and therefore have no need to use them. My 17 year old daughter however happens to get chapped lips and so I asked her to try these out for me and to let me know what she thought. She was gracious enough to write out her own review. Here is what she had to say:
My lips – especially during the winter season – easily get chapped, but half the time either I don’t know what to use or I’m too impatient to find or use a product. ChapStick® lip balm, however, is a brand that most (if not all) people recognize. Traditional? Perhaps. Reliable? Most certainly. ChapStick® True Shimmer is of course a lip balm, but it also provides a light shimmer (as its name obviously implies). My personal favorite happens to be Botanical Berry, which gives off a fruity scent. It not only moisturizes but also accentuates your lips. For those who want to play up on a natural look for your full lips, you can wear it alone; however, if you would just like a moisturizer, simply apply before applying any lipstick/lipgloss. I’ve done so both ways—I use it every day now—and it works great!
After reading her review I decided to try out the Tropical flavored one. Boy am I glad I did! I had no idea what I was missing. This handy little tube is bursting with tropical flavors of pineapple and coconut, yum. Not only is this lip balm moisturizing, I love the added bonus of the shimmer and shine. It's a very subtle shimmer so it still looks natural on the lips.
So kiss away those dry lips with Chapstick True Shimmer lip balms.
These make a great inexpensive stocking stuffer to!
Suggested retail price: $2.79
