My lips have been suffering for almost a week. Nothing is worse than getting sick and dealing with dry, chapped lips and struggling to keep them moisturized 24/7. I’ve been alternating between different lip treatments, depending on the time of day, my mood and well, my lips. Here are my four winter lip balms I’ve been rotating ’round the clock:
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment. As much as I love those tinted pops of color, there’s nothing wrong with going back to basics. This is currently stashed in a drawer in my cube at work.
Aquaphor Lip Repair. I’ve been using this drugstore staple religiously at night. You only need to apply once before you go to sleep and you’re set for the whole night.
Aerin Rose Lip Conditioner. I’ve had this in my side pocket of my purse for so long now, there’s purse dirt all over it. I don’t care though, I love this luxe lip conditioner. The rose scent reminds me of my Yiayia. It also boasts just the slightest rose tint to enhance any pout.
The Body Shop Shea Lip Butter. I also keep this at my bed side but I especially love this for its mildly sweet scent (and it’s only $6!!)
Do you have a favorite lip balm you use when you’re getting over a cold? I’d love to hear your recommendations!
