Best Lip Balm for Your Pucker
A tried-and-true lip balm (or three) is a staple in every cosmetics bag, backpack, and purse in America. The perfect go-to lip balm is moisturizing, has a smooth finish, and softens chapped lips. Instead of reverting to more of the same, check out the Divine Caroline team's picks for the best lip balms.
Sun Bum SPF 30 Lip Balm
With an exceptional SPF of 30, the Sun Bum Lip Balm is the perfect choice for a day in the sun. The vitamin E and aloe moisturize and protect all day long. Available in six fruity flavors, such as banana, mango, and key lime pie, these yummy balms are sure to be new favorites.
Evolution of Smooth Visibly Soft Lip Balm Spheres
Evolution of Smooth has done it again with their new Visibly Soft Lip Balm Spheres. The cute new design and formula is smoother, provides long-lasting moisture, and is available in Coconut Milk and Vanilla Mint. EOS lip balm glides on clear and doesn't leave behind sticky residue. It's perfect to wear under your favorite lipstick or gloss.
Carmex Moisture Plus
For those times when your lips need a little something extra, there’s Carmex Moisture Plus. Carmex moisturizes and helps to heal chapped lips. The moisture-plus formula comes in a skinny tube in four limited edition patterns so they’ll look just as stylish in your handbag as on your lips.
Wedderspoon Queen of the Hive Organic Lipcare
The Wedderspoon Queen of the Hive lip balm is made from honey, and the shea butter has a mild SPF and naturally softens lips. Its subtle yet soothing peppermint flavor gives you hours of lasting lip conditioning—no reapplying every 20 minutes— leaving you with a healthy-looking pout. Made entirely from organic ingredients, this product is a guilt-free buy.
ChapStick has been synonymous with lip balm since its creation in the 1880s. The classic tube softens and protects lips from the elements. Although now available in numerous flavors and formulas, there’s something about the taste of cherry ChapStick that I just like.
Prescriptives Lip Specialist
Called a specialist for a reason, Prescriptives Lip Specialist corrects dryness, flaking, and chapping. Not just a balm, this lip therapy contains botanicals that also plump lips and even out lip tone. Use this therapy treatment overnight, and wake up to softer lips.
Jane Iredale Lip Drink
Jane Iredale Lip Drink is a colorless lip balm with a creamy finish. The product comes in a sleek, silver metal tube and contains SPF 15. The fresh lemon scent is heavenly and is the perfect refresher for your thirsty lips!
Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm
Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm is a staff favorite. The 100 percent natural balm, made from beeswax and essential oils, conditions lips while the peppermint oil provides a tingling sensation. Keep one in every bag so you are never without this essential product!
Revlon Balm Stains
A go-to product for beauty bloggers and Divine Caroline staffers alike, Revlon ColorBurst Balm Stains are a cult favorite for a reason. The balm stains are affordable, come in a wide variety of colors, and leave behind a tint even hours after application. The formula is non-drying, unlike many lip stains, and is available in the original balm stain, matte balm, and lacquer balm styles.
