There are tons of lip balms on the market today ranging anywhere from a couple of dollars to nearly $60. The fact is, you don't need an expensive lip balm to give yourself the protection and shine you need. One of my favorites is made by Vaseline and comes in a handy tube with applicator. It's very inexpensive, protects and moisturizes and gives your lips a great shine. Wear it alone or over your favorite shade of lipstick. If you want a flavored lip balm that's a real treat for your lips, then check out the flavored lip balms from Philosophy. You can get them at
Sephora or QVC and they come in yummy shades and flavors in a generous size tube with applicator. They are a little more pricey (between $10 and $15), but it's a long-lasting product that looks and tastes great. Bath and Body Works carries the widest variety of lip balms for everyone on your list. They range in price between $5 and $10 and they often run great sales on their products. Besides being a great treat for yourself, be sure to pick some up as stocking stuffers.
