Lip Balm – Dr. Hauschka Lip Care Stick
Review: Dr. Hauschka’s lip care stick is hands down the best lip balm I’ve ever used. It softens lips and protects against chapping and dryness. I wear it alone or under lip color to keep my lips hydrated. Since this is a bit more expensive than most lip balms, I’ve tried others and keep coming back to Dr. Hauschka. No funky scent or taste, this lip balm is simply perfect.
Where to Buy: You can buy Dr. Hauschka’s Lip Care Stick at most natural grocery stores.
Price: About $14 for 0.17 oz.
Fever Blister/Cold Sore Remedy – Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil Skin Ointment
Review: Although this product is not marketed as a fever blister remedy, it is the best product I’ve used to head off fever blisters. It contains lavender oil, tea tree oil, jojoba seed oil, almond oil, Vitamin E and beeswax. Lavender and tea tree oil are recommended to soothe and reduce fever blisters. I apply this ointment at first sign of a problem and typically, I am able to reduce the inflammation and shorten the blister duration or avoid it altogether. This is always in my bag when I travel. Of course, this product is free of parabens, phthalates, petroleum compounds and is also gluten and cruelty-free.
Where to Buy: You can buy Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil Skin Ointment at most natural grocers.
Price: About $8 for 1.0 oz.
