While using our lip balms can be helpful but we need to do some home remedies also.
To prep, the skin is the most important thing:-

Take 1 spoon of honey and sugar with 2 drops of lemon and mix it well.  

Apply on the lips, keep for 5 minutes massage well, wash and dry it with a soft towel as using the towel will also exfoliate the skin. 

Now your lip is ready to take the maximum benefit of product as we have removed the dead skin and any impurities. 

According to my personal experience, I have tried all the lip balms, but my requirement was to lighten the lips as I have soft and supple lips.

So,  Laneige lip balm worked best on my skin and the small tub goes for more than 6 months. If you know any other effective lip balm,  do mention in the comment section.
