Unlike your skin, the lips don’t have glands that can secrete oils to keep them hydrated and are therefore more susceptible to dryness, cracking and irritation. We’ve compiled a list of the 7 best Lip Balms to keep chapped lips at bay.
1/7 Paula’s Choice Lip Balm with SPF 50, £12.00
An excellent lip balm that restores moisture to dry, chapped lips. Also includes SPF 50 to protect against sun damage, ideal for the summer.
2/7 Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1, £10.00
I personally love Kiehl’s, and this #1 lip balm is no different. This lip balm contains Squalane as well as Vitamins A and E to help keep your lips hydrated and protect them from the drying effects of the wind, and cold weather.
3/7 Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm, £3.00
A 100% natural lip conditioner that soothes dry, chapped lips. Also contains vitamin E and peppermint oil to soothe and hydrate your lips and provide a cheeky tingle.

A lip oil infused with plant oils to hydrate and protect the lips. Also leaves a pleasant shine without any stickiness. Application is easy with a sponge-tip that is pleasant to use.
5/7 Vaseline Lip Therapy Original, £1.95
Perhaps one of the best known lip therapies, and for a reason. This is a clinically proven formula that helps soothe and heal dry and chapped lips. The formula sinks right in and is non-sticky.

A lip balm with 100% natural ingredients that is also certified organic. The lip balm has been enriched with organic oils and shea butter to moisturise your lips and keep them soft and smooth. Oh, and it smells and tastes great.
