Being exposed to the elements day after day is tough on your skin. Keeping your lips protected is a nice thing to do for yourself. Between the constant wind and a lot of UV exposure dry cracked lips happen fast. Personally I prefer the Burt’s Bees brand, specificly the Vanilla Bean flavor. It has a nice consistency and does not feel heavy or waxy. To be honest unless I am in a drug store or well stocked supermarket I just buy what ever is at the register. The next time I run across Burt’s , I just pitch whatever I’m using and switch back.
