Save: LIp Balm

Coco Chanel once said: The best things are free in life. The second best are very expensive.

In case you do not understand what’s the big fuss about a lip balm - you are either young or rich, either way, blessed. Good lip balm is hard to come by; mass consumer brands usually leaves a dry waxy residue on the lip with chemicals you never heard of. I always want to pass a law that bans toddlers and kids under 10 to use anything but edible lip balm. But let's ignore that for now.

Now, the few lip balms that I am willing to splurge, like Fresh, has raised their price from RM89 to RM105 ($20-30). I have been trying to avoid lifestyle inflation, but I am afraid to say that it’s winning me over.  Fine things are second best in life, and it is very expensive.

I love the existing choice, but I need to take a step to back and move from the pricey to pleasantly affordable. Luckily, I discovered an amazing product - Wild Luscious Lip Balm. The name can be slightly misleading, as they are very friendly priced at RM19. They are 100% natural and only RM19 (USD3.50)in, it's worth every penny.

I pick the cream caramel because it sounds cute. It smells like a candy with a splash of sweetness (heart touching to know that they use stevia). I suppose vanilla bean would be a better gift for those without a sweet tooth. Made with 25% shea butter, cocoa butter and coconut oil, it’s something you can literally eat and kiss.

Oh, I just notice that pure coconut oil works too. If you plan to further save cost, I propose to dab some coconut oil. It is a straight-to-the-lips solution.

One of the nice things I want to share for all who need a luscious lip. #oneatime
