6 Quality Lip Balms to Un-Chap with This Winter

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

Walking to classes the bitter winds of Wisconsin — or anywhere else it gets to subzero temperatures — is a hassle; and it’s safe to say that our lips are not always doing so hot (ha, get it?). Luckily, with these lip balms, your lips can kiss the cold air goodbye and retain their moisture with fun flavors!


1. ChapStick Candy Cane ($8.00 for three)

Everything else is peppermint-flavored in the winter. Your lip balm can be, too!


2. Burt’s Bees Original ($3.79)

A timeless classic (in stick or tin form!)


3. Burt’s Bees Cucumber Mint ($3.29)

Try this product by Burt’s Bees for a softer, minty lip balm if you don’t want something quite as strong as ChapStick’s. It also comes in multi-packs with other flavors, too.


4. ChapStick Cherry ($2.99 for three)

ChapStick is another classic that never disappoints! For a sweeter, less herbal option, try ChapStick in the cherry scent.


5. EOS Sweet Mint ($2.99)

For all you peppermint and holiday season-lovers out there, this is another option that is still minty but a bit sweeter. Plus, how can you not have fun collecting a kaleidoscope of eggs?


6. EOS Passion Fruit ($2.89)

For those of you who are into tropical or fruity flavors, look no further than EOS Passion Fruit!


Whether you prefer wax tins, sticks or portable eggs, there’s something out there that you — and your lips — will appreciate this winter.
