These Hydrating Lip Balms Are the Only Things Getting Us Through Winter

Achieving hydrated, soft lips during the dead of winter is the equivalent of perfecting a winged eyeliner look in one fell swoop — it’s no easy feat. Unfortunately, dry, cracked and chapped lips can quickly become the status quo when the temperatures take a dip. To successfully moisturize your lips and keep them that way,  we’ve rounded up our favorite lip balms for winter below.. 

Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1

This cult-favorite and beauty editor-approved product is obsession-worthy for a good reason. With squalane, aloe vera and vitamin E, the colorless balm keeps flakes at bay and can help rehab even the driest lips. 

NYX Professional Makeup Bare With Me Cannabis Sativa Oil Lip Conditioner 

The same way you condition your hair, you should condition your lips. With hemp-derived cannabis sativa seed oil, this ultra-shiny gloss is a perfect salve for dry lips. We love the sheen it gives on its own, but if you insist on wearing color, layer this lippie on top of a lipstick for an extra boost of hydration.


Thayers Slippery Elm Lip Balm

This hydrating balm contains sunflower oil, extra virgin olive oil, hemp seed oil and vitamin E to ensure that your lips are smooth, hydrated and moisturized. The addition of slippery elm extract works to heal cracked or peeling lips, which makes it a great option for the winter months.

Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Neo Nude Balm Lipstick 

Treat yourself to this feel-good lippie that provides both color and comfort. Formulated with the antioxidant caper oil,  this luxurious balm promises eight hours of hydration. 

Sarah Happ The Lip Slip Balm 

We love the silky sheen that this lippie gives us, almost as much as the immediate results. With a hydrating combination of natural, nourishing oils, you can say goodbye to chapped lips.
