The Best Lip Balm

The best lip balms soothe chapped lips, offer protection and provide a bit of color to make for a perfect pout! Some of the best moisturizing lip balms on the market include ingredients that enhance moisture for lips without giving that 'goopy' feeling one gets from lip glosses. Lip balms are unisex, though some, including tinted lip balms, are definitely more makeup-y than others. This list of the best lip balm includes a variety of products in different price ranges. Be sure to vote for your favorite lip balms on this list!

The best rated lip balms tend to serve triple duty. The lip balms for chapped lips prevent horrible, painfully cracked lips, while also including SPF for extra sun protection (lips need that too, by the way, just as much as skin). Some lip balms are thicker than others, allowing for longer-lasting wear. For those with an organic bent, there are natural lip balms available that are fantastic!

From Lemon Drop to Sweet Mint to Summer Fruit, the EOS Lip Balms are adorable (Lemon Drop also has SPF 15). The packaging is distinctive, too: All EOS Lip Balms come in cute little spheres!

    Beauty aficionados are likely already familiar with the wonder that is Smith's Rosebud Salve. This little tin works absolute magic on dry, chapped lips, offering the moisture of a great balm with a nice, light scent. Smith's Rosebud Salve is also great for other beauty uses: smooth it on dry cuticles to moisturize. It also works great (in moderation) to smooth down flyaway hairs and it moisturizes dry elbows and knees. It's also great to use for minor burns!

    For variation, try the Rosebud Strawberry or Minted Rose Lip Balms!

    Price range: $6 to $7

    Price range: $3.00

    Neutrogena's Norwegian Formula Lip Moisturizer is a great little lip balm with great softening properties.

It also contains SPF 15 sunscreen to help protect lips from the sun's damaging rays.

    Price range: $2.99 to $3.50
