One thing every woman needs stashed in her bag or pocket is lip balm. No matter the season, dry, chapped lips are a thing, and most of us tend to accumulate tube after tube that feels soothing upon application but wears off immediately (and somehow ends up making things worse). Choose a product with the right natural ingredients, though, like shea butter and fruit oils, and you can stop the constant reapplication. Just think about what you’ll do with all that time!
