SheFinds Solutions: Chapped Lips & Extra-Dry Skin
January 9, 2008
A series of unfortunate events (dramatic weather changes, a tanning bed debacle, waxy matte lipstick) left my poor pout peeling and dry. Though I liked that my lips were bright red and needed no additional color, the burning, tight skin sensation was too much to handle. I tried Carmex, it stung. My drugstore Blistex did nothing — it would soothe for about 30 seconds before I had to reapply. I was turning into a chapstick junkie. Anything with a good smell or tasty Bonne Bell flavor wasn't helping. I was about to revert to the old fashioned protection in a jar, Vaseline.
Then I remembered the That's NonScents lip balm sitting in my make-up bag waiting to be sampled. It's been in my coat pocket ever since I cracked the seal on the tin and the balm sealed the cracks on my lips. With absolutely no flavor or scent, the ingredients of That's NonScents products are simple and all natural.
While fragrant beauty products are fun, there's a lot to be said for purity — especially if you have allergies or skin that is sensitive to preservatives and additives. My pal, NYC esthetician Jewell, treks into Harlem to find pure shea butter (from street vendors) to help treat dry skin, wrinkles, and dermatitis. She swears it diminishes the appearance of stretch marks.
No need to scour Harlem, That's Nonscents has 100% pure shea butter. (I've been rubbing it into my elbows and knees.)
