Think about your most-used makeup products — I bet lip balm is at the top of that list. Lip balms will always be a makeup bag, purse and vanity essential regardless of the time of year. Although it may be easy to just pick up a standard Chapstick at your local drugstore, lip balm is one of those things that is investment-worthy . . . at least Jennifer Garner thinks so.

In an interview with Glamour, Garner divulged some of her favorite things — from the last thing she bought to the cookbook she opens the most. Yet, out of all the items you would’ve expected her to splurge on, it was a serious surprise when she mentioned a lip balm. “My favorite luxury skincare splurge is the Dr. Barbara Sturm Lip Balm,” she explained. “It is so stupid to spend that much money on lip stuff, and I understand that, but it’s a splurge. I’ve only owned one thing of it, and it’s lasted me forever.”

Now I know that $55 may seem a little outrageous for a lip moisturizer, but there is something uniquely special about this one . . . beyond the fact that it is incredibly long-lasting. Upon further research into what Dr. Barbara Sturm’s lip balm is comprised of, it’s incredibly refreshing to read the ingredients list and recognize every single item. In the little pot you’ll find a mixture of beeswax, shea butter, avocado oil, cocoa seed butter, coconut oil and tocopheral (AKA vitamin E). The minimal blend is designed to intensely hydrate and nourish lips while also protecting against free radical damage and environmental aggressors. Your everyday drugstore pick probably can’t do that.

Additionally, since it’s made with a blend of butters and oils, the balm imparts a glossy sheen onto lips, diminishing the need for a separate gloss for nights out — gotta love a good multitasker!

Garner isn’t the only fan of this balm either. In fact, she’s influenced a quite a few people into buying it for themselves — and they’ve had zero regrets. “I bought this after reading an article where Jennifer Garner swore by this stuff, and ladies and gents, she is not wrong,” one reviewer raved. “This stuff is amazing! Nice texture, similar to the La Mer one, but not minty and even smoother. Worth the splurge! My lips feel ridiculously soft.”

You deserve to treat yourself (or a loved one) to something that will actually work and turn a mundane task — like applying lip balm — into a luxurious experience. So go on and indulge yourself by picking up the Dr. Barbara Sturm Lip Balm.
