If you are a cold sore sufferer, you know the pain when those pesky painful bumps start to pop up on your lip. You’ve probably tried just about everything to make them go away or stop appearing.
Be. has released Base. Lip Solve, a lip balm that is designed to prevent cold sores from appearing. Cold sores can be triggered by anything. Too much stress, sun, alcohol, or not enough sleep can cause the herpes virus to flare up and multiply in your lips where you see the dreaded blisters start to form.
Base. uses glycyrrhizin found in liquorice root to attack the dormant virus to weaken it so that outbreaks will be less frequent and less painful.
The solve comes in a tube and a bullet, and they both have moisturising shea butter and SPF 30, so your lips should be in tip top shape. It feels great on and has a lovely faint vanilla scent. Essentially, it’s everything you want in a lip balm. Although there is no cure for cold sores, I know I’ll try anything that claims to keep those annoying blisters at bay!
