This is it: hands-down my favorite lip balm. The lip balm. I’ve tried a bunch — these lips need moisturizing — and I crown Weleda Everon Lip Balm the winner. I keep one in my purse, one in my travel bag, one in my bathroom. I’m making sure there’s never a time that I want it and don’t have it.
I’ve been using it for years. Yes, there have been times when I’ve checked out something new… only to come right back. I think I first bought it because of the container. I always had a hard time getting the caps off the traditional lip balm tubes after I’d washed my face and put on moisturizer because my fingers were slippery. The cap on this is big and long and comes off easily (but not so easily that it comes off when you don’t want it to, like in your bag). I liked the simplicity of the container and the type, with a nice color palette of peach, white and red.
But don’t get me wrong; what’s inside is the shining star here. This lip balm has a different texture than any other I’ve tried. It’s waxy rather than oily or sticky. I use it right after I bathe or wash my face, and it seals in the moisture. I use it throughout the day, too, but because I always use it right after washing, while my lips are still moist, my lips have an easy time staying hydrated.
The best part is that the balm is made from shea butter, beeswax and jojoba oil, among other natural ingredients that you can feel good about putting on your lips. I love the light fragrance, too, which comes from vanilla and rose extracts. You can smell it in the tube but it doesn’t taste like anything on your lips. This, my friends, is lip balm perfection.
