- What It Is: A clear lip balm
- What It Does: Hydrates with a glossy finish
- Who It's For: Anyone looking for softer, hydrated lips (it contains bakuchiol, which is a retinol-like ingredient, so it is wise to avoid it if you are pregnant or nursing)
Every time I get fillers, my lips require hydration at all times. Between numbing cream and the healing process, they become as dry as a well-done hamburger (but thankfully, as plump and juicy as a medium-rare one). My remedy of choice lately has been the Whish Pink Champagne Lip Balm. The translucent, jelly-like formula slicks on like a gloss to bathe lips in a soothing layer of hydration. Plus, I love how it gives them a non-sticky shine. When its sheen wears away, though, my lips are left just as moisturized as when I first slathered it on.
Best of all, The balm is spiked with bakuchiol, a buzzy ingredient known as a gentle, vegan retinol alternative, to help smooth away flakiness and inflammation. It's typically found in serums and cream, so this was my intro to bakuchiol’s lip-nourishing benefits.
