In a recent interview with People, Beckinsale shared that the lip balm has always been one of her beauty product staples and called it her “absolute jam.”

This cult-favorite balm is formulated to prevent and heal dry, chapped lips. Its key active ingredient is white petrolatum, a type of jelly that works to moisturize and protect the skin by forming a water-repellant film around the lips.

“Unlike the rest of the skin which has a thick stratum corneum (dead cell layer) for extra protection, the lips do not, so they are even more prone to winter dryness,” said Heidi Waldorf, M.D., founder of Waldorf Dermatology Aesthetics and associate clinical professor at the Icahn School of Medicine of Mount Sinai University, in a previous interview for

My 8-year-old prefers this overs most options. Bought this as a stocking stuffer and it was a hit.”

“I love this flavor of ChapStick, by far my favorite, it tastes just like artificial cherries, gives your lips the lightest tint, and it smells delicious,” added another reviewer. “I bought a whole bunch of these to store in all my different bags and places in the house lol. Totally worth the price point.”
