Though we love the crisp fall weather (time to break out those sweaters!), the lack of moisture in the air often makes our lips dry out and get chapped. This seasonal dilemma has me constantly stalking up on chapstick to make sure my lips are moisturized throughout the day. However, I should be able to save some extra cash this time around thanks to a $7 lip balm that Drew Barrymore swears by to keep her lips hydrated at all times.
The actress recently praised Dr. Dan’s CortiBalm Lip Balm (Buy at Walmart, $7.50) in a fall edition of Drew’s Little Yellow Book, a weekly round up of her favorite products she’s using at the moment. She first came across this lip balm after her dermatologist recommended it and it’s been her go-to ever since. While she often wears lipstick for work including hosting her talk show The Drew Barrymore Show, she notes that this lip balm gives her “much relief from product overload!”
It contains a mild hypoallergenic blend of petroleum jelly, beeswax, mineral oil and one percent hydrocortisone. This formula works to reduce inflammation caused by sunburn, certain medications, or cosmetic products that result in chapped lips. Barrymore says that it’ll especially help during the fall and winter months when the dry air can draw moisture from our lips and cause them to become cracked. Barrymore even says she keeps one stick of this lip balm in every pocket!
Why we like it:
- Can treat all types of mild to severe chapped lips
- Contains a mild hypoallergenic blend of ingredients
- Reduces inflammation associated with chapped lips
Happy customer: “This is a great product. Most all lip balms irritate my lips which just worsens the problem. This product has been a lifesaver. It is a must have now.”
This lip balm is just one of the several affordable beauty finds that Barrymore has been clueing us in on for some time. From her regular shampoo and conditioner set to cheap eye cream for removing dark circles, she reminds us that we don’t have to break the bank to look beautiful everyday!
