Winter Obsession: Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm

So winter happened. I’ve been quite happily bumbling along these past few months, thoroughly enjoying the mild weather we’ve been having, when suddenly, out of nowhere, it’s cold outside and my lips are super dry and chapped. 

Luckily I recently received a tube of Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm. I’m new to the brand and the balm, but I slathered some on over the weekend and I’m already hooked. It provides instant relief to dry, scaly lips and is incredibly long lasting. It contains an SPF of 25, making it ideal for outdoor sports, and its natural mint and shea butter combo is very soothing. And even though it contains mint, I don’t find that it has any taste or scent – rare in a lip balm these days. If you’re looking for a good winter balm, I definitely recommend this one. 

New Year’s Eve Nails 

I’m not typically much of a glitter girl. Don’t get me wrong – I love girly glam just as much as the next beauty blogger – I just don’t often find that glitter necessarily “goes” with my everyday aesthetic. All that flies right out the window, though, as soon as holiday party season hits. And if ever a party called for glitz and glam, it would be New Year’s Eve. 

This year I’ll be sporting the ultra-flashy, über-gorgeous nail polish that is Ciate Tinsel Town.  Photos really don’t even do it justice; in person it looks like I’ve plated my nails in rose gold. I can’t think of a better polish to be wearing when the ball drops, can you?
