softlips cube has proven to be an excellent hydrator. the formula is rich in shea butter and vitamins A, C, and E to restore lips back to their pre-cracked state. it also contains SPF 15, which is nice because even though it's freezing the sun manages to be fierce. while the formula is color-free, it still leaves lips with a subtle sheen. my favorite part may be the delivery system. it looks like a fancy ice cube, and because the balm is popped outward it can be applied hand-free.
available in pomegranate blueberry, fresh mint (my favorite), and vanilla bean. $4 at softlipsstore.com.
