Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25

Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25 // Belle Belle Beauty

Finally… something we can steal from the guys instead of the other way around. Jack Black Lip Balms are the most amazing little gems. They smell fabulous, they aren’t tacky and they have a solid SPF to boot. I’ve been using Lemon & Chamomile, Mango & Mandarine and Intense Natural Mint on the regular and can’t seem to pick a favorite.

The formula is packed with skin conditioners to effectively heal dry lips. Avocado oil helps soften while Vitamin E repairs damage and protects from free radicals. While I adore many lip balms that come in pots, I prefer this slanted applicator – just seems more hygienic.

I got the male perspective on all three fragrances and they all are man-approved. There isn’t any one that is overly feminine. Bottom line: man and woman alike wouldn’t mind having these scattered about.

Available at Sephora, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Drugstore.com and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Rescue Dry Winter Lips

Winter Dry Lip Cures from Belle Belle Beauty

I’ve been fielding loads of questions about caring for dry, chapped winter lips. I battle dry lips year round, so I am in even more of a pickle when the humidity plummets. Here are my favorites to have on hand over the colder months:

1. By Terry Baume de Rose: I was a little weary of a rose scented balm, but this rich formula melts into a glossy, nourishing treatment. I wore it over red lipstick yesterday and the effect was a blended, shiny pigment with loads of hydration. This also doubles as a great cuticle cream.

2. La Mer ‘The Lip Balm’: If mint is more your thing, this other luxury option is more of a solid balm with still the same nourishing hydration. The balm contains La Mer’s famous Miracle Broth™ with marine extracts, botanicals and vitamins to regenerate the delicate lip skin.

3. bliss fabulips sugar lip scrub: There are a couple different lip scrubs that are often repeated as “favorites”. I’ll tell you why I love this one: it is gentle while removing flaky mess and leaves behind Shea and Cocoa butters to soften and heal.

4. Kate Somerville ‘Quench & Correct’ Plumping Lip Gloss & Restorative Lip Treatment: This option is packed with skin care to help improve the appearance of your lips. The Correct end of the pen contains Hydra8™, boosting collagen renewal and eliminating dryness. On the other side, Quench, adds moisture and plumps. See Kate’s Winter Skin Care Tips here.

5. ChapStick Cooling & Soothing Lip Balm: I couldn’t be more tickled with the latest flavor of ChapStick: Peppermint. The same healing formula now has a cooling feel that seals in moisture while you brave the elements. I can’t think of a more festive lip balm.
