You may notice that as things cool down outside your lips begin to dry out! Chapped lips are a sign of the season. You bundle up in extra layers, but your lips are still exposed to the sun, wind, cold, and dry air.
The only thing worse than dry cracked lips is grabbing a lip balm to treat them that delivers zero results! So frustrating.
In order to ensure you select the perfect lip balm for YOU there are a few things you need to consider.
Do you prefer a solid balm from a tube that applies directly to your lips or do you enjoy dipping into a luxe portable pot formula? Maybe you favor a gel formula in a tube? Do you want a bit of tint? Do you want it to have a scent? Do you want something with gloss or something matte?
Regardless of the form it takes, your lips need a shield to stay in shape. A balm provides a buffer between your delicate skin and the weather or indoor heating, so never let your lips go nude and if you want to wear red lipstick (which is unforgiving and shows every crack) you better invest in a great lip balm!
Here are 3 of my favorite lip balms that I will be packing into every pocket, handbag and set bag this season:
ONE: Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Tulip. The newest shade in Fresh’s Sugar Lip Treatment Collection, Tulip is a subtle pink lip tint that is super hydrating while still giving your lips a bit of color. Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 blends reparative oils and waxes with real sugar, a natural humectant, for delectable and dependable moisture. Sweet and tart black currant oil, rich in plumping essential fatty acids, cushions the lips while antioxidant grapeseed polyphenols and vitamins A, C, and E provide protection from wrinkle-causing free radicals. It provides essential, year-round protection from damaging UV rays with a sugary sweet citrus scent. Leaves lips feeling fresh, lush and totally kissable.
TWO:Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Overnight Lip Balm. A luxe balm to protect an nourish lips while you sleep. It contains beeswax and Vitamin E to condition and soften the lips and it makes an excellent “prep and prime” when you apply it before lipstick. Leaves lips feeling soft and moisturized.
THREE: Aerin Rose Lip Balm. From beauty royalty Aerin Lauder’s skincare collection this solid balm drenches lips in nourishing moisture, blurring fine dry lines to help visibly repair. Viamerine, an organic derivative of Sunflower, helps lips look and feel smooth and youthful. The barely there pink shade adds a kiss of color and soothes with the delicate, calming scent of AERIN’s signature floral infusion.
