I love a good salve -- it can moisturize chapped lips, cuticles, soothe rashes and pimples, even tame flyaway brows. It's very versatile and I always have one in my purse (or at my bedside) all the time. But because I was in a hurry to pack for my US trip, I had forgotten -- for the very first time! -- to pack my VMV Boo Boo Balm! I never leave home without it, so I was really distraught since it was my go-to product for anything skin.
So, off to Sephora I went to look for an inexpensive alternative. I could've gotten just plain ol' petroleum jelly, but I might as well explore what the US has to offer and get something new.
Enter Milk Makeup Hero Salve. While the brand has been on my radar since my Glamourbox days, this was my first time to actually pick up their product. You know that feeling when you've been pining for a product for far too long and then you actually see it on the shelf? Yep, I was that ecstatic that I let out a gasp and immediately grabbed it.
I got this for only $10 in the black hole that is the Sephora samples aisle. Because samples still are my guilty pleasure.
