With the colder months drawing near, it’s time to start thinking about how you will protect your skin and prepare it for winter. Your lips are one of the most vulnerable parts of your body that need some extra care and attention. One of the best ways to do so is to get hold of some quality lip balms that will ensure that your lips are well protected. Here’s a list of our top favourite lip balms that you need for cooler weather.
1. Rose Lollipop, Lush
Made with Turkish rose oil, candelilla, and orange peel wax, the Rose Lollipop lip balm from Lush is an incredible treats for your lips. Not only is it soothing, but it also smells incredible and tastes pretty good too (although I wouldn’t recommend eating it). It will leave your lips feeling sleek and glossy despite the cold weather.
2. 100% Natural Beeswax Lip Balm, Burt’s Bees
Most of you have probably heard about Burt’s Bees before – it’s an incredible brand that makes all-natural beeswax cosmetics. The naturally conditioning beeswax does a good job of protecting and nourishing your tired lips. It can even repair damaged lips and make them feel beautiful once again.
3. Born Lippy, The Body Shop
This watermelon-scented lip balm is perfect for hydrating and repairing dry lips. It has a slight watermelon scent and also gives your lips a tint of colour, so it can be occasionally used as a substitute for lipstick. It’s one of the best possible solutions for unhealthy, unhappy lips.
4. Hydro Care Lip Protection, Nivea
Nivea is a great go-to brand when it comes to moisturising your skin. It’s cheap and readily available in the majority of supermarkets and beauty stores. This particular lip balm is ideal for the colder months of the year, as it hydrates your lips and ensures that they remain safe in the face of the biting cold. It absorbs really quickly and can even be used as a base for your regular lipstick.
5. Lip Therapy Cocoa Butter, Vaseline
It goes without saying that Vaseline is a tried and tested solution to dried, unhealthy lips. The rich formula infused with cocoa butter will provide your lips with all of the required nourishment and help them feel smooth once again. It’s also very good value for the price and definitely deserves to be a part of your lip care collection.
6. Instant Light Lip Balm Perfecter, Clarins
As a more upmarket choice, the Clarins lip balm perfecter is the perfect solution for anyone who’s looking to both protect and beautify their lips. It’s available in eight different shades ranging from a light pink to a more bold plum, which ensures that you’ll be able to pick the best tone to suit your look. This product does an incredible job of enhancing and nourishing your lips to make them look their best.
7. Organic Sweet Mint Lip Balm, eos
Enriched with shea butter and organic oils, this eos lip balm is definitely one of our top favourites. We highly recommend you give it a shot – it’s available in a variety of incredible scents, but the mint one also has a refreshing edge to it.
8. Pear Lip Balm, Kiehl’s
Designed specifically to combat the negative effects of cold weather and strong winds, this fruity lip balm is a must-have during the cooler months of the year. It will keep your lips safe all day long and you won’t have to worry about them drying out. It’s also available in a few other scents such as mango and cranberry.
