8 Lip Balms to Take on Winter

January 12, 2015 Buying Guides By Photo by Henry Phillips

Lip balm’s lifespan is admittedly brief. But that doesn’t diminish its value, especially during winter. Brisk winds and near-zero percent humidity are kryptonite for lips. A first (and very thin) line of defense, lips easily dry out, crack and become painfully chapped. Lip balms are meant to prevent and alleviate such problems; the wax-based products help heal and moisturize, and form a protective barrier against Mother Nature’s assaults. All of these options go on clear, aren’t glossy and won’t cost a fortune — because chances are you’ll lose them pretty quickly anyway.
