Four Lip Balms YOU Need to Get Through Winter

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at BC chapter.

As cooler temperatures approach, we all start to get dry skin. While a basic chapstick can get you through the fall, a heavy-duty lip balm is necessary for the winter. Treat yourself to one of these before finals hit!


A tried and true favorite, Aquaphor is the perfect multi-purpose balm. Simple, yet effective, this is an inexpensive option that can be used to hydrate your lips, while also providing a clear, pretty sheen. The tubes are the perfect size to throw in your purse, backpack, or to keep on your nightstand!

Lanolips 101 Ointment Multipurpose Superbalm

This Australian lip balm is similar to Aquaphor in that it’s a multi-purpose balm, but it’s a bit more moisturizing, making it the perfect choice for when your lips get chapped. The cute packaging doesn’t hurt either! 

Mongo Kiss

This lip balm is lighter than the rest, but just as moisturizing.  The balms are offered in a variety of flavors, but the peppermint or vanilla honey would be perfect for the winter. They’re also organic and eco-friendly!

Kiehl’s Butterstick Lip Treatment

This balm combines all of the benefits of a lip balm with the pigmentation of a lipstick. While the color is sheer, it’s the perfect addition to a natural makeup look. Try the Naturally Nude shade for class and the Touch of Berry shade for holiday parties!

Hopefully, these will help as you transition into winter weather!
