    Top 5 Lip Balms We Love

    A couple of weeks go, we rounded up our top five favorite lip glosses and, for those who prefer it, promised to return with a slew of awesome lips balms. So whether you’re more into gloss or more into subtle balms, we’ve got you covered! No matter your preference, it’s always important to keep your lips hydrated and protected from the summer sun.

    Here are five of our top lip balm picks! We can’t wait to see what you think and hear all about your favorites in the comments below.

    Lip-Gallery-Best-06-1

    C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve has a huge fanbase–and for good reason! It’s not sticky, greasy or heavy, it feels very moisturizing and it smells amazing. The rose tint is pretty and you won’t have to reapply too often. What more can you ask for? (BigelowChemists.com, $5.50). We also love the similarly packaged Smith’s Minted Rose Balm, which also comes in their original scentless tin. Another classic favorite! (Sephora.com, $7)

    Lip-Gallery-Best-04

    Got cracked or burnt lips? Super sensitive all around? The instant relief this lip balm brings to painful, chapped lips is pretty spectacular. It’s much stronger than regular Chapstick, especially if you slather it on before bed. The tingling, menthol sensation is nice, and you can feel your dry lips immediately healing. (Blistex at Walgreens.com, $2). Can’t find it but need something to fix up your hurting lips? We also love Aquaphor Lip Repair & Protect, available at most drugstores.

    Lip-Gallery-Best-01

    Lavender and lemon…score! This Beecology balm is both relaxing and invigorating, and mends chapped lips quickly, lasting throughout the day. Beloved by both women and men, the balm slides on smooth and never feels heavy or overly scented. We like it even more than Burt’s Bees (though they do have some rad tinted lip balms). It’s also from a great organic company that’s not putting anything questionable into their products. Hooray! (Beecology.com, $3)

    bess-best-lip-balms-02-v

    Lip calm…sounds nice, right? This super oil lip balm sticks to your lips all day, heals chaps and flakes, and is unscented for those who prefer a no taste/no smell lip balm. Bonus points? It works well on cuticles, too! (Dermstore.com, $6). Another natural option without crazy scents? Yes To Carrots Sweet Fig Lip Butter  is an all-natural, paraben-free SPF balm that softens and nourishes well. It’s got vitamin E, jojoba oil and shea butter to create an anti-oxidant rich formula that is all about soft, non-greasy moisture for your lips. Check it out here!

    Kiehl’s lip balm is scentless, inexpensive compared to the line’s otherwise more pricey (and amazing) beauty products and is made right here in the U.S. While it’s particularly effective for winter, it’s also great for protecting your lips in the summer as well! There’s a reason it’s the company’s number one seller and appears on so many beauty websites’ lists for best balms. (Kiehls.com, $7)

    1. You guys missed Buddha Balm lip balms. They are the best and they are all natural. A lot of your suggestions have artificial ingredients and petroleum in them. Just try any Buddha Balm flavor and you will se the difference.

    2. My fav is mac lip glass but they discontinued my favorite color 🙁 but if i wear one for helping my lips its burts bees. I do have a baby lips but i like this one because my shade is wrong for me >_<

    3. The E.O.S. Pomegranate Raspberry is my favorite!! There are quite a few different colors/scents, so there is one for everyone. It goes on smooth and has no color, so it works well to put under your favorite lip gloss/lipstick. And It also works well on its own if your not really into Lipstick and lip gloss, because its add some shine without any color.

      • I LOVE the EOS lip balms too, Maddie! There are so many awesome scents like you said, and I have to agree with you about the Pomegranate Raspberry one being my favorite so far! I love that they come in adorable egg shapes, too, although I wish I could put one in my pocket w/o having it fall right back out! 🙂

    4. I love the Nivea lip butters (I have the Vanilla and Macadamia Kiss) and I LOVE it so much. I use it every single day at least once and since buying it early July, I still have yet to see the bottom of the tin. It’s a little expensive (It’s $3.00 where I live and I bought it at Ulta) but it is SO worth it considering the use you get out of it.
      I also LOVE EOS.
