We all dread the dryness that the cold winter air comes with later in the year. Dry skin and chapped lips become an annoying inconvenience during this crisp aired season.


Everybody uses a lip balm at some point of the day to hydrate their lips when it’s needed. Some may notice that application is more frequent during winter, but lips still end up chapped and painful.

Lip balm formulas and ingredients vary, and all work differently from the other. We’ve collated a list of some excellent hydrating products to try when the weather gets harsh and starts to affect your smackers.
