The Top Balms To Keep Your Lips Hydrated This Winter


Colder weather often comes with its own set of beauty challenges, and dry lips are one of my personal winter woes. For that reason, I never leave the house without one of my go-to balms! At any given time, I’ll have one in my car, my purse, my nightstand, and even my pocket to keep my lips soft and hydrated throughout the day. I’ve tried many balms that promise to soften and smooth over the years, but here are the absolute favourites that I keep reaching for season after season.

Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

Available on Amazon

A classic beauty bag staple, this soothing lip balm is loaded with coconut and sunflower oils to hydrate and nourish chapped lips. There are plenty of flavours to choose from, but my favourite is the classic peppermint for its refreshing tingle and uplifting wintery scent.


Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment

Available at Sephora

For a balm that’s a little more sophisticated, I love Fresh’s Sugar Tinted Lip Treatments. With just a sheer hint of colour and a buttery soft application on the lips, this balm also has the added bonus of an SPF 15.


Glossier Balm Dot Com

Available on Glossier

My most recent lip obsession has to be the Balm Dot Com. It’s got a thick, waxy texture that somehow manages to still feel light on the lips and comes in six choices of scent (including one that’s fragrance free!). I love that it also doubles as a salve for cracked, dry skin anywhere on your body that could use a little extra tlc.


Bite Beauty Agave Lip Balm

Available at Sephora

Like a warm winter hug, this vanilla scented balm will sooth the driest of lips this season. It’s enriched with shea butter, jojoba oil, and agave nectar to protect lips from the wind and cold while also staying put for hours, making it the perfect hydrating base for your favourite lipstick.


Hurraw Lip Balm

Available on Amazon

When it comes to finding a vegan alternative to your favourite beauty products, it can sometimes be a challenge. Enter Hurraw – their all natural, raw, and organic lip balms are 100% vegan and dozens of fun flavours like root beer and Earl Grey tea.


Coola Liplux

Available on Coola

Coola’s lip balm comes in six shades to deliver sun protection in every application. They contain 70% organic ingredients and an SPF 30 that’s water resistant, making this the perfect balm to keep on hand for your winter beach getaway.


Pat McGrath Labs Lip Fetish Lip Balm

Available on Sephora

If you’re looking for a luxe option this winter, the Lip Fetish Lip Balm by Pat McGrath definitely fits the bill. In both shimmer and sheer colour options that hydrate lips with vitamins and antioxidants, the gorgeous packaging ensures that you’ll feel like a queen with each swipe.
