This Under-$10 Drugstore Treatment Is The Best Cure For Dry, Chapped Lips

I can’t bear the sight of dry, chapped lips on someone else, let alone the actual feeling on my own lips. I always carry at least two lip balms with me at all times because I am that crazy about dry lips. I just can’t.

Given my fierce disdain for insufficiently hydrated lips, I’ve definitely tried way more lip balms than I can count. When I’m feeling fancy, this is my favorite, but on a regular, everyday basis I swear by Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost lip treatment. Why? For starters, it’s only $9.99. I spend way more than that on random items that I don’t even use all the often, so less than $10 for this essential that I use multiple times a day is a real steal.

This lip treatment is also one of my go-tos because it doesn’t have that dreaded sticky feel so many lip balms have. You know that feeling when you press your lips together and they kind of feel gel’d together and sticky when you try to separate them? Ugh, it’s the worst. Luckily, this Neutrogena lip treatment keeps your lips moistuirzed and soft without that. It goes on so smooth and almost instantly gives your lips weightless hydration that lasts for hours.

I actually like to apply this lip treatment before I put on my lipstick and before I go to bed. It keeps my lipstick from peeling and flaking and keeps my lips from getting chapped in the middle of the night.

The only thing that would make this lip treatment even better is SPF. It’s not a huge deal to me because I can apply it separately, but worth noting so your lips are protected.
