I needed to tell you guys about my new favorite lip balm. I got this over Christmas from some of my cousins. This is Smith's Minted Rose Lip Balm from the Rosebud Perfume Co. It's cruelty free and vegan! It's got a slight tint, goes on in like a creme/gel like vaseline but lighter and less greasy.
I like the fact that it's minted-- it feels cool and fresh on your lips, but isn't burny at all. It's super light and really moisturizing. This is very different from my usual EOS sphere lip balms and I think I'm going to continue to use both.
I think the EOS balm is better for overall maintenance of my lips, but the Minted Rose balm is probably what I'd put on before going out, or in very dry, windy environments where I need the extra boost in moisture. Apparently some people use it to relieve headaches because of the peppermint oil.
I really love this stuff. You can get it at Sephora.
