the best lip balms according to a lip care addict

Lip care in particular has always been my thing. From the early days of Lip Smackers to going clean and cruelty free in my 20s, I’ve tried it all. I never leave the house without a good balm or gloss, and I’m a sucker for any product that leaves my lips feeling soft and moisturized long term. From drugstore finds to indie brands, here’s the best of the best lip balms that I guarantee you’ll love…

Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

A classic that should be in everyone’s makeup bag IMO! Both my husband and I use this one, and I love the refreshing peppermint tingle!

Ilia Lip Wrap Overnight Treatment

This is a lifesaver for super dry lips, and I’m a huge fan in general of overnight treatments because I feel like the product really gets a chance to absorb well!

Farmacy Honey Butter Beeswax Lip Balm

This one’s a favorite of both me and my mom, and I think it’s a perfect cruelty free and budget friendly dupe for Fresh Sugar Lip Balm!

C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve

I love using this all-purpose salve for my lips, hands, cuticles and any other dry spots! It smells like a freshly cut rose and feels so silky.

Lanolips 101 Ointment

This one contains lanolin, which can cause allergies in some people (like my mom!) but I personally love this ointment for lips and hands! It’s a great long-term moisturizer and skin protectant IMO!

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm

I’m a newcomer to the world of lipstick, so I love the ease of use and subtle color a tinted lip balm provides while hydrating at the same time. Plus, this won’t leave color on your teeth or fade in a weird way after eating or drinking!

Borden Acres Honey Lip Balm

My mom swears by this brand! Available on Etsy and their own website, everything they make is completely clean and handmade in California. I love this lip balm and the fact that it comes in recycled/recyclable packaging. Their skincare products are pretty amazing too, especially if you have eczema, since they use their own goats’ milk and other natural ingredients!

I hope this helps in your quest for moisturized lips, stay hydrated my friends!
