My 5 Most-Used Lip Balms

My 5 Most-Used Lip Balms

If ever there were a time to load up on lip balm, winter would be it— just yesterday, I was lamenting over the fact that my bottom lip cracked and peeled in the most painful way possible. The culprit? Not enough lip balm, and waaaay too many drying lipsticks. I mean let's be real, I'll do almost anything to get that Instagram shot, but I draw the line at slowly destroying my lips... Ya feel? So to avoid those aforementioned, pesky cracked lips, and to help anyone out there who may be looking for a new balm to try, here's a quick roundup of some of my go-to lip products. Happy slathering.

MY 5 MOST-USED LIP BALMS 



GLOSSIER BALM DOT COM

This one is nothing if not a cult favourite, and let's be real, we've all tried it. But it's just too good not to include. I've used it for years and still love it as much as I did the first time I slid it across my lips— after all, things don't get cult status for nothing. The beauty of this product is that it's as versatile as it is effective; as a universal skin salve, you can use it to tackle cuticles, dry skin, and so on and so forth.

EOS LIP BALM

I have one of these in my office, another one by my bedside, and at least ten stashed in various purses. The ultimate throw-on-and-go balm, this one has been a go-to of mine for as long as I can remember (as well as a must-apply before lipstick). My personal favourite is the Strawberry flavour, but any of these organic, 100% natural lippies will do. Oh, and they're under five bucks— gotta love smooth lips on a budget!

RODIAL ROSE GOLD LIP BALM

I consider this one more of an anti-aging treatment; it nourishes and revitalizes the lips by promoting collagen production, improving firmness and even boosting radiance... and all with a soft wash of colour. The smell isn't exactly my favourite, but it's a small price to pay for healthy-looking lips.

BY TERRY BAUME DE ROSE

I love this one because it makes me feel super fancy every time I put it on. And that's for good reason— this shizz is expensive. I treated myself to it a couple years back and fell in love, so I wanted to mention it but with an asterisk; any one of these other balms would work just as well, so before you go and get all spendy, just be forewarned. But if you are down, just know that you're in for a major lip treat if you do make the investment. This one plumps and leaves lips (and cuticles) looking more hydrated, and it smells absolutely incredible. No wonder it's a celeb favourite.

IT COSMETICS ROSE HYDRATING COLOR AWAKENING LIP TREATMENT

I like this one because it makes my lips feels super soft, but it also gives a nice flush of colour, so it's great for both makeup and non-makeup days. It's packed with essential oils and butters, hyaluronic filling spheres and antioxidants, and uses something called Vitality Lip Flush Technology that reacts with the warmth of your lips to create the perfect pop of colour... obsessed
