There are few things in this world that are unavoidable: taxes, death, tripping over your shoelaces, and chapped lips during the winter. Taxes, death, and falling down every other day we can deal with, but chapped lips are where we draw the line. Nothing is more uncomfortable than having lips that are drier than the Sahara Desert, or our current love life.
Below are three of our go-to lip balms.
#1 – Wedderspoon Bee Smooth Lip Balm Trio, available for $11.99
The best things in life are free? No. Whoever wrote that saying made a massive typo. What he/she should’ve said is “the best things in life come in three,” and this product is the perfect example. As a young, innovative company, Wedderspoon aligns its decision making with the principles of ethical sustainable honey production, the support of bee conservation and offering transparency to its consumers.
So, why is this the best lip balm? Manuka Honey. Honey helps nourish, moisturize, repair and protect the lips. These balms left our lips soft and moisturized, plus the flavors taste great too. We find ourselves licking our lips every couple of minutes just to taste the coconut lime, thankfully the products they use are organic. Don’t tell anyone, but we use these balms even when our lips aren’t dry – we love them that much! The balm also glides easily and is very smooth. You can count on that, honey (no pun intended).
#2 – Badger Balm Classic Organic Lip Balm – Lavender Orange, available for $2.99
Badger Balm, you had us at lavender! Seriously, we believe that there is no better scent in the world than lavender. Bader is a family-owned and family-run business that uses the finest organic plant extracts, exotic oils, beeswax, and minerals to make the safest and most effective products possible.
The lip balm contains extra virgin olive oil, beeswax, and aloe, all products that help moisturize and protect the lips. The best part? It contains no petroleum or artificial products. So, what were our thoughts? The lip balm had a light texture, and it glides very smoothly on the lips. Similar to The Honest Company balms, these don’t leave a bad taste in your lips. They also leave your lips feeling smooth and glossy, but not in an annoying kind of way.
#3 – The Honest Company Organic Lip Trio, available for $9.00
These lip balms come in three different scents: lavender mint, purely simple, and sweet orange vanilla. Our personal favorite is sweet orange vanilla, but all three were equally effective. Aside from being made from all organic products, we love the consistency of the lip balm. You get the nice hints of mint and sweet orange vanilla (the purely simple doesn’t taste like anything). Plus, they glide easily on the lips. Not a bad option if you ask us.
Whether you’re looking for a luscious set of lips for a first date, or simply don’t want to look like you haven’t had a glass of water in days, these lip balms will save your life. If you decide to try any of these, please let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
