The Best Balms and Treatments for Smooth Lips All Winter Long


Cooler weather and indoor heating can lead to dry, chapped lips that seem to never repair all winter long. These latest glosses, balms—tinted and clear—and treatments are vying for a room at the bottom of your purse and are formulated to get you through the next few months. Here, 10 winter must haves that soothe, hydrate and smooth for softer, more supple lips.

1 / 10

Byredo Flavored Lip Balm ($50)

With three minty flavors—Camomille d’Anjou ,Bergamotte de Bahia and Thé à la menthe d’Agadir—this limited-edition, 100-percent natural balm is nourishing, glides on smooth and makes the perfect daily lip conditioning treatment or primer. Housed in Byredo’s signature curvilinear metal casing, it also looks like a mini work of art.

Featuring SPF 24 with a pretty, glossy finish, the Cocokind Tinted Lip Shield ($16) has a juicy, nonstick feel while hydrating, shading and shielding in just one swipe.

HIGHR California Lip Milk ($28)

What’s more Californian than sunflower seed oil? The base ingredient in this lip oil softens while a “sparkle suspension” gives lips a healthy, illuminating glow.

Lanolips Tinted Balm Spice ($13)

A fall favorite already, this spiced-honey tint has the same lanolin, shea butter and vitamin E blend of the other cult-favorite balms, but with an added bold, spicy hue.

Giving a soothing veil of sheer color, we love Well People Lip Nurture Hydrating Balm ($12) which nourishes with plant-based ingredients like castor seed oil, shea butter and coconut oil. This glossy wonder comes in 10 vivid shades.

Rich botanicals in ALO Lasting Lip Balm ($12) include coconut oil, avocado, rosehip and alma. The formula melts on your mouth on contact and feels more like a butter than a balm.
