New Year is here, and so are the winters.

A season that I love and hate... I love it for it's festive aura and I hate it for the dryness it brings to my skin. My skin especially my lips dry up so much I sometimes worry they may crumble. I have over the years tried numerous brands of lip balms, some good while others not so. This year I received a lovely product from Oriflame and it has surprised me tons. It's the Tender Care Protecting Balm.
