The other day, I reached into my purse at work to discover that -- gasp! -- I had forgotten to bring lip balm. Now, this came as quite a shock to me, as I normally have about 5 or 6 various balms rattling around in any purse I'm carrying. So I rushed out to the Ricky's down the street in search of a lip balm that would keep my pout feeling moisturized and nourished in a pinch.
As I stood in front of the lip balm rack (yes, there was an entire rack!) surveying my choices, the supremely friendly staffer on duty asked if I needed help picking one out. I have to admit, I was stumped by which one to try, so I took him up on his offer. Without any hesitation, Miguel (for I discovered that was his name) recommended Yu-Be Lip Therapy. "It moisturizes from within," he told me enthusiastically ... and that was enough for me!
Well, Miguel sure knew what he was talking about. This innocent orange and white tube contains a balm that makes my lips feel soft and conditioned for HOURS. Vitamin E moisturizes, camphor soothes, and my lips are once again free of irritation or chapping.
Yu-Be Lip Therapy retails for $5 at sephora.com.
