Gettin’ Lippy

It’s no secret winter sucks the life out of skin; dry, chapped hands and scaly legs are a result of dehydrated, parched skin. Although your body takes a beating, harsh conditions strip moisture from lips the most. Rough kissers are anything but pretty, so thankfully there are an arsenal of savior salves out there to soothe your pout. Tried and true, here are my top picks.


Korres Lip Butter
This lip butter is, well, super buttery. It’s consistency is just right, and is formulated with natural oils and rice wax for lasting hydration.

Dior Crème De Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm
Admittedly, I bought this lip balm for its beautiful, vintage looking pill box-like exterior. It became a constant after its rich, rare rose oil, vitamin A and E and Shea butter packed formula transformed my lips and left me with a soft, gorgeous and fuller pout.

Lucas’ Papaw Ointment
This Australian staple is used for everything from burn treatment to cuts to splinter salve. Its antibacterial and antimicrobial formula makes it a star first aid savior, but the moisturizing benefits of papaw (that’s papaya in Aussie-talk) make it a beauty must-have, too.

Maybelline Baby Lips
In 8 fun shades and a lip-saving protectant of SPF 20, this renewing lip balm is a great moisturizer that soothes and smoothes dry lips.
