best lip balms
I drink water and put on lip balm like it’s my part time job. Yet somehow, I still have dry lips lately. I couldn’t live without lip balm. Nope, never, ever. Here are the best lip balms, according to me.
Emile Cordon Lip Pot This is the most luxurious lip balm on the list. It would make such a lovely gift. I have Coco, which smells like coconut cake.🤤 I put this on before bed at night and I feel like a legitimate fancy lady because it comes with a little spatula. As you know, included spatula=very fancy. It’s also formulated without petrolatum, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, GMOs and triclosan and has an almost oily feel.
Lanolips 101 Ointment I admit; I initially wanted to try Lanolips because it’s cute. It has a sheep on it. Baaah! I love a good multipurpose balm and I like this one so much for lips. It creates almost a protective shield and has a pretty glossy finish, without feeling greasy or slippery. This is my favorite lip balm to use at night before bed. I can’t wait to try the scented versions, like Banana. Lanolips is free of parabens, mineral oil, petroleum, sulfates and artificial fragrance.
Agave Lip Balm I freakin love the lip mask version of this so of course I had to get the stick too. I have to say, I still love the mask best but this a little thinner and easier to apply. It has lanolin and shea butter and I think it would make a great lip primer due to it’s texture.
Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask There’s a reason this lives in my freelance kit. It’s so yummy, fast acting and effective. Put this on when you start doing your makeup and by time you’re ready to do your lips, they’ll be superstars. It’s great overnight too of course. Here’s my original review. The Agave Lip Mask contains lanolin, like the Lanolips and also agave nectar and jojoba oil.
Glossier Balm Dotcom I have a few fave flavors/scents of this but overall, they’re all great little multi-purpose balms. I love using them on my lips but also my cheekbones as a non-shimmery highlight. My top favorite varieties are Coconut, Mint and Birthday. Full review here. Unlike some of the others in this post, this does contain petroleum, but still no parabens. Like Lanolips, it also contains lanolin.

As we move into fall and winter, I hope some of these help you and your pout out. Thanks for reading, always!
