These Are The Best (+ Prettiest!) Products For Dry, Desperate Lips

Cold weather months are brutal on your skin. Even more specifically, they are brutal on your lips. Your lips don’t have oil glands like most of the skin, so they are extra vulnerable to the elements like cold temperatures and wind chills. It’s a well-known fact that your lips get chapped, dry and flaky in the fall and winter months, we’re not reinventing the wheel here. But, we have tried an extensive list of lip products featuring all different types of problem solving promises, and these 10 are by far the best.

Meow Meow Tweet Vegan Lip Balm

The sweet orange tangerine flavor of this balm is a dream. We also love that this cruelty-free brand uses only clean ingredients, and comes in a super-cool biodegradable tube!

Squalane+ Rose Vegan Lip Balm

This delicately scented rose lip balm is so smooth and never clumpy or congeals. It instantly hydrates your lips and leaves a pretty, natural-looking shine.


KUSH Lip Balm

Don’t worry, this won’t leave your lips looking like the Wicked Witch of the West! The green lip balm dries clear and uses cannabis seed oil to hydrate and calm irritated dry lips. If you’re looking for a pop of color, it also comes in four beautiful tints for that perfect natural pout.
