60 Second Beauty: Yes To Naturally Smooth Lip Balm Collection

New Yes To Naturally Smooth Lip Balm Collection review

I’m not a loyalist when it comes to lip balms, but with my chronically chapped lips, I’ve tried out my fair share. You could find pretty much an entire drugstore selection in my handbags, everything from the stand-by Chapstick, a tin of rosy Vaseline, fresh Sugar Lips, and even a desperate “Did I seriously just pay $15 for a chapstick?” from Caudalie. I’ve never found a cure-all for my parched lips, though, so I was really excited to check out these new all-natural offerings from Yes to! Because I have my mother to thank for this genetic gift, I enlisted her help as well. Here's how it went...

The Look for Less: Celine 'Nano' Bag

This preowned Celine 'Nano' bag in cobalt blue was $2,100 (compare at $2,400) at Portero.com but is no longer available.

The Celine 'Nano' comes in a variety of colors, and so does the look-a-like but I've decided to focus on the bright blue - this dupe is just $45 at DailyLook.com. This bag is also a good dupe for the sold-out 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target mini crossbody tote, don't you think?

The Look for Less: Sorel 'Tofino' Boots

Sorel's 'Tofino' winter boots in black are $150 at Nordstrom.com. Sorel has a good reputation for making warm, water-resistant boots that should last for years, so the look for less might not be worth it in this case...



..but if the Sorels are not in your budget, the Merona 'Neida' snow boot is a good look-a-like for $44.99 at target.com. Also in red or white.



Which would you choose?
