the no-nonsense and always-working way to cure chapped lips.

First, the bad news: Vaseline's Lip Therapy balm is not tinted, or glimmer-infused, or inspired by vampires. Sorry. But despite the fact that it fits into absolutely no Spring runway trends and zero red carpet roundups, we're still naming it a must-have product - we'd even go so far as to say it's a Desert Island pick. That's because it works. If you have chapped lips, use it before you go to bed and you'll get that problem solved. And if you're obsessed with wearing a matte lip color, or a creamy pale shade similar to the Mod Looks in our Beatles fashion spread, apply a little underneath your lipstick to make the color spread evenly. Also, it's about $2 at drugstores - a worthwhile investment.
