As the chill of winter creeps in, everyone starts to talk about potions and lotions to protect the skin from the merciless cold months. But what about your lips, whose skin is extremely thin and virtually defenseless?
Your pout is equally exposed to the frigid weather – and demands some tender care to avoid chapped (not to mention bleeding) lips. Below, we have gathered several rich lip balms to survive the winter.
NuLipsRX system by Nurse Jamie
This all-natural, petroleum-free lip balm is infused with hyaluronic acid that hydrates and protects. It comes with an antimicrobial silicone lip brush that helps you exfoliate your lips and keep them looking glossy.
Cost: $26.00 at Saks Fifth Avenue
Dior Creme de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm
The sun might not beam through the gloomy sky, but do not let your guard down. UVA and UVB protection is a must even in the cold months. And this balm can help. It comes with SPF 10. What is even better is its shy pink tint and sweet smell of roses.
Cost: $30 at Sephora
Cosmos Everywhere Salve
We have not seen a more versatile lip balm that this one. Jam-packed with herbs that promote healing, hydration, and protection, it can be applied on your lips, face and body. Its therapeutic scent of lavender and chamomile is just an alluring bonus.
Cost: $22 at Cosmos’ website
La Mer The Lip Balm
This, indeed, is THE lip balm. Mint-favored, it flaunts a luxurious formula that is potently reparative. Not only does it intensively hydrate the lips, it softens and rejuvenates them and guards against future damage.
Cost: $60 at La Mer’s website
Clarins Extra-Firming Lip & Contour Balm
This balm not only restores cracked lips, it makes them plumper and firmer. With daily use, it can erase any signs of aging as well.
Cost: $44 at Saks Fifth Avenue
OY-L Manuka Latte Lip Balm
We love this latte-scented lip balm! Its Manuka Honey deeply moisturizes the lips, while its appealing smell invigorates your whole body.
Cost: $22 at Saks Fifth Avenue
