THE 3 BEST LIP BALMS FOR YOUR SAD, CHAPPED LIPS
Does anybody else basically have to give up on matte lip color during winter, or is that just me? There are many things I dislike about Chicago winters, and my lips do not take too kindly to the brutal weather. Think cracks and chaps for days… hence, giving up matte lip color most of the season.
However! I have discovered that liberal application of any of the below products helps SIGNIFICANTLY. Consider them your chapped lip savers, all winter long. Also handy to have if you did too much making out on Valentine’s Day, or whatever. Anyway, without further adieu: the three best lip balms for winter (or ever, really):
Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask
My sister introduced me to this stuff, and I am absolutely obsessed with it. I slather it on every night before bed and have noticed a huge difference in my lips this winter — they’re not completely parched and begging for moisture, for one thing. It comes in a new everyday agave formula too that I’m super curious to try.
Fresh Sugar Lip Scrub
It’s a cult favorite for a reason. Feels like a dream thanks to its blend of essential oils and and, yes, real sugar. Plus it’s got with vitamins A, C, E and SPF (trust me, a lip sunburn is the worst kind of sunburn) and comes in sheer tints if you’d like a wash of color with your treatment.
The most affordable option on this list at $12, Glossier’s original Balm Dot Calm has simple, nourishing ingredients that make it perfect for those with sensitive skin. It also comes in four flavored versions for those who like a little variety — I have the rose and love it. Plus, if you’re new to Glossier, you can use my link for 20% off your very first purchase!
So there you have it: the three best lip balms for winter to save your sad, chapped lips. Or my three favorites, anyway…let me know what yours are in the comments!
