Beauty Unbiased: A Life Without Lip Balm is Not a Life Worth Living

A Life Without Lip Balm is Not a Life Worth Living

Chapstick was my gateway drug. My entry to the multi-billion dollar beauty industry, I was once one of the biggest addicts out there. Actually, I may or may not still a pretty big lip balm addict, but I've branched off from the black and white original Chapstick label over the years and discovered that lip balm monogamy is not for me. There are so many lip balms to love, why limit yourself? There really is no better time to share the lip balms in my life than the fall, when lips seem to suffer from that problematic mix of heat turning on inside and temperatures dropping outside. In no particular order, here are my favorite lip balms.


1. Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm Lemon and Chamomile, $7.50: Thick and greasy in the best kind of way, this was one of my first forays into the world of fancier lip balms as soon as I discovered it at my local mall's Bath and Body Works, aka my middle school hang out.  

2. Nivea Lip Care Olive Oil and Lemon, $2.99: One of the many flavors offered by Nivea Lip Care, the Olive Oil and Lemon is one of my favorites because its like a Mediterranean vacation for your mouth; or at least what I imagine one would be like.  

3. Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm, $14.50: You read that right. I thought I'd accidentally received a special edition pregnancy Birchbox when I received this sample in my monthly box, but the 100% natural lip balm has become my go to for nighttime lip treatment since its thick texture really coats and keeps lips moisturized.     

4. Jouer Lip Enhancer Conditioning Lip Treatment, $14: Not surprising that the brand that makes one of my favorite moisturizing lip glosses also created a deeply moisturizing lip treatment that goes on silky smooth and leaves a subtle shine.


5. eos Organic Lip Balm Sphere Sweet Mint, $3.29: It's not just the noticeably different round packaging that makes eos lip balm a standout. It's 95% organic, 100% natural and at this point is seems like every single friend and family member of mine that has seen me use it has ended up buying and loving it.
