The Best Lip Balms On The Market-From a Lip Balm Addict

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

My lips tend to get chapped very easily, so lip balm has truly been a lifesaver for me. Over the past few years, buying and trying a variety of different lip balms has become a bit of an addiction. Through my trials, I feel I have truly found some of the best lip balms on the market, and I decided to share them so that others can try them out as well! 


  1. O’Keeffe’s Cooling Relief Lip Repair Lip Balm

Price: $6.75

Why I Love It: While I am rather fond of mint-flavoured anything, this lip balm truly is a winner because it works almost instantly! This balm, which is made for dry and chapped lips, provides immediate relief of lips even in the worst situation. I am also a big fan of the oval-shaped container, which provides ideal coverage of the whole lip in just one stroke. 


  1. Burt’s Bees Beeswax 100% Natural Moisturizing Lip Balm, with Vitamin E and Peppermint

Price: $5.99

Why I Love It: Burt’s Bees has been one of my favourite chapsticks for years! I often have a tube in my bedroom, purse, jacket and car at all times. This natural lip balm contains vitamin E, which promotes cell turnover and regeneration, soits use on dry lips brings new cells to the surface faster and eases chapped lips. While there are many different kinds of Burt’s Bees lip balm, I find that nothing beats the original beeswax formula!


  1. ROSEBUD PERFUME CO. Rosebud Salve

Price: $9.50 

Why I Love It: Rosebud Salve is not only a really wonderful lip balm to help with chapped lips, but it can also be used on dry elbows or knees! I love how this salve can be used in so many different ways, and you also get a ton of product for the price. This salve also has a very pretty light pink lip gloss look when applied, which is another plus.


  1. FRESH Sugar Lip Treatment

Price: $32.00

Why I Love It: While this lip balm might be the priciest on my list,  it is definitely worth it! This lip balm moisturizes, conditions and is very long-lasting. I am particularly obsessed with the Rosé version, which leaves a slight pink tint on the lips and smells amazing! While this lip balm is one of my favourites, the price is the only reason it wasn’t higher on my list.


  1. EOS Active Protection Lemon Twist Lip Balm

Price: $4.50 

Why I Love It: While I have never particularly been a fan of EOS lip balms, I received this one as a gift and was surprised at how much I like it. This lemon-scented lip balm also contains sunscreen, which is very important to maintaining good lip health. Additionally, I find it to be very creamy and long-lasting. 


I hope that this list was helpful, and I encourage readers to try out these wonderful balms!
