I have somehow got quite dehydrated over the last few weeks, a combination of not being well and not looking after myself properly. It has affect my lips the most and my top lip is the worst being quite sore and cracked. It's the first time I have tried Palmer's lip balm and I am really happy with how it has softened my lips. It has a simple smell, not chemically but best of all it saturates my lips in moisture with a soft protective coat over the top. Definitely a hand bag staple from now on.
