Sayonara Chapped Lips: 4 Lip Balms Guaranteed To Help Heal Parched Puckers

By Alexis Wolfer

If the cooler, drier air has left your pucker parched, fret not.

As a former-chronically-chapped girl, I feel you.

More than that, though, I’m here to heal you!

For sahara like conditions… nothing beats By Terry Rose de Baum ($60). It’s a small fortune (literally, a fortune for a small tub) but when I say that nothing heals lips better or faster, I mean: Nothing. Heals. Lips. Better. Or. Faster. End of story. (Don’t lose the tub and it lasts ages too!) Just think of it as a pucker-perfecting investment. You deserve it.

For a pop of color… try Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm ($5.49). I’m partial to the Sweet Violet hue, but really all of them rock. Moreover, the help to keep lips hydrated without having to compromise your color loving ways. And, with their all-natural formula you can feel better about the 7 or so pounds of lip products you supposedly ingest over the course of your lifetime (although we question who actually teated this.

For a fruity flavor… try Out Of Africa Pomegranate + Acai Lip Balm ($6.99 for 3). The pure Shea Butter formula is loaded with moisturizing oils and packed with natural antioxidants, but it’s the sweet fruity flavor that has us licking our lips (literally).

For kissable lips without the stick… try Nivea Lip Butter in Vanilla & Macadamia Kiss ($3.99). It goes on smoothly (like the lotions Nivea is famous for!) and stays on for hours, but what really has us sold is the non-sticky formula, which, believe it or not, is harder to find than you may think! (PS. they call it vanilla and macadamia flavored, but I think it tastes like marshmallows!)
