Lip Balms are by far my most used skincare products. You’ll find them stashed throughout my home, handbags and pockets – I’m always applying one. Caring for dry, winter lips is about more than just the weather. It’s also the dry indoor air and wearing of face coverings. Here’s #TheAlexEdit of lip balms to nourish, treat and soothe dry winter lips.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Nighttime Rescue Lip Oil-Serum*

A beautiful last step to an evening skincare routine. With its soft applicator, you can layer on this non-sticky Oil-Serum to the lips. I love how the formulation balances the nourishment of soothing Rose and Lavender oils with the lightweight feeling of a serum to hydrate and plump dry lips. You could also wear this during the day if you like a nice clear gloss finish.

Summer Fridays Vanilla Lip Balm*

Summer Fridays offers a lightweight layer of hydration for the lips with their nourishing balm. It’s full of conditioning seed butters and is super softening and comfortable on the lips. If you’re looking for an overnight treatment you can layer it on thicker for silky smooth lips by morning. 

Biossance Squalane + Rose Vegan Lip Balm*

Perhaps my most used lip balm over the last year. Non-sticky, super nourishing with that protective squalane hydration layer, feels comfortable on the lips and doesn’t dry out. I’m obsessed – for me, it’s one of the best lip balms out there. 

Augustinus Bader The Lip Balm*

I adore the Augustinus Bader range and this lip balm is no exception. Perfect for on-the-go, this balm delivers smoother, soft, plump lips that feel nourished and supple. It’s a solid balm that glides easily over the lips and is suitable to use comfortably under lipstick. 

La Roche Posay Cicaplast Lips*

For the most chapped, dry and irritated lips – Cicaplast Lips is a brilliant choice. Suitable for sensitive skin, it can also be applied around the lip area to soothe and replenish surrounding dry skin. It contains 5% Panthenol and creates a protective barrier over the lips to repair and shield from further environmental dryness and friction.
