10 Lip Balms To Kiss Chapped Lips Goodbye
No matter how chilled out you are or how low-key your skincare regime, the one essential that is always found in every girl’s handbag is a lip balm. I don’t know any girl who leaves her house without one. Lip balms are an absolute necessity, especially during winter, to keep your puckers hydrated.
Lip balm has evolved dramatically over the years, and is no longer restricted to petroleum jelly. The sheer number of choices are enough to make anyone’s head reel, which is where we come in and help you choose from the best. Here’s our list of some of the best lip balms for winter:
This glossy lip balm is known to heal and soothe chapped lips no matter how cold the weather gets. It is a clear chapstick with all-natural ingredients, and leaves a hint of a sheen behind.
The biggest turn-off is when a lip balm sits heavily on the lips. If I can feel a waxy texture on my lips, I’m not going to use it. Blistex works wonders on chapped lips. If you are prone to severe chapping that can bleed if left unattended, Blistex DCT is for you.
This clear lip balm repairs and moisturises chapped lips and keeps them soft. It is also loaded with SPF 15, which makes it even better as it has sun protection.
I have a thing for tinted lip balms. If a product can nourish and leave a hint of colour behind, there’s nothing like it. Besides, the combination of mint and rose works really well.
The fact that it doesn’t cake your lips with a waxy layer coupled with its tropical, fruity fragrance make this lip balm a winner. It shields lips from the dry and cold weather by keeping them soft and supple.
Shea Butter is an absolute lifesaver when the weather turns cold. This replenishing lip balm contains essential rose wax and shea butter and leaves just a hint of colour on your lips, making them look soft, nourished and naturally pink.
Girls who love all-natural products will surely love this lip balm with kokum butter and honey, which heals, nourishes, and seals in moisture and soothes chapped lips.

this all-natural, nourishing lip balm contains organic almond and castor oil, along with organic beeswax and cocoa butter. The result: Intense moisturisation for dry, parched lips.
