I tried surfing once. It didn’t end so well — I lost the surf board and almost slammed up against a bunch of rocks. Still, there’s something totally dreamy about surf culture — and especially surfer girls, who are totally badass, and strong and basically live in the ocean. And that’s why I’m really excited about Sun Bum’s line of lip balms. Packed with SPF 30 sunscreen, they protect as well as soothe, and come in a crazy delicious array of flavors, including mango, pink guava, pomegranate, coconut, key lime and their original banana (I’ve got banana on right now, and it’s making me hooooongry). Try it — it’s certainly a lot easier than getting on a surfboard. [$3.99, Sun Bum]
I think I’ve mentioned my love for Revlon Lip Butters a few times now, most recently in the context of my summer makeup routine, but I thought it was time to make things official and
ask Lip Butter to marry me write up a full Beauty Test Drive. This awesome lip balm/lipstick hybrid is the bestselling lip color of the year, and I’ve contributed to its success by buying three shades (so far) and recommending it to many of my friends, especially the ones who are hesitant about lipstick. Want to know why? Get the scoop, after the jump… Keep reading »

The sexiest thing about me? My extremely chapped lips. I realize most people have to combat this condition once the temperature drops and brisk winds are in the air, but my lips are unique in that they have no regard for the climate. Through both bitter chills and balmy 100+ degree days, my lips are intent on cracking, peeling, occasionally bleeding, and generally trying to make a run from my face. Granted, I tend to exacerbate it by licking and picking at the issue, not to mention applying unfit products that are bound to dehydrate my pucker (red lipstick, why must you be so drying?!?!). As a result, I’ve tried just about every lip balm on the market that claims to repair the situation and leave your lips feeling silky smooth. But, more often than not, they fail me. I’ve found a few winners along the way but nothing that stands out as my healing holy grail. I have hyper-sensitive skin that blooms rashes if you look at it wrong, and my lips are no different. Some of the most popular and highly recommended formulas have left me red and itchy for days.
That’s why I was more than a little excited when a Bar and Balm Bag from Pleasant River Soap Co. landed on my desk… Keep reading »
Although no one has quite figured out where to purchase it, we hear that Paula Deen has a mouth watering line of lip balm perfect for the person looking to “put a little South on your mouth.” Aren’t we all?
