Best Lip Balm For Chapped Lips

Updated on February 8, 2013

Most of us have used lip balm for one reason or another - whether that's to heal chapped lips, prevent them becoming chapped or as a means of keeping our lips safe from harmful exposure to sun damage.

There's a wide variety of chapsticks on the market - some are for extra dry lips, others are simply brand name products, organic, flavored and tinted. Generally I recommend a combination of two - one that contains spf's and also tints.

Tinted lip balm is great for day time and can add to the overall look of work or day make-up. For those that prefer non-tinted, a clear moisturizing one with an spf ingredient. The five best lip balms are featured below. They're best sellers, great value for money and will definitely keep your lips lush - and protected.

Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm Tube

This is the best selling lip balm, a deeply moisturizing chapstick from Burt's Bees. It's a natural product, containing some of Mother Nature's most hydrating and soothing produce ... coconut oil, sunflower oil and beeswax to coat and protect the lips with lovely moisturizing properties.

It's not a balm for everyone - some find that it feels thick and greasy, which is great if you live in either an area that's prone to a lot of dry heat or the opposite - harsh winter sun. It does moisturize, it does protect the lips and for those that prefer natural products it's a big hit. A slight taste of peppermint and comes in a recycled tube.

Mentholatum Natural Ice Medicated Lip Protectant SPF 15

This is the best selling spf lip balm - and it possesses a five star rating from happy customers. It protects the lips up to an spf of 15 and will also soothe chapped, dry and/or sore lips whilst protecting them from further damage.

This one feels as though it penetrates the lip's surface, rather than just sits on top. That's great for the healing process, as chapped lips need moisturizing from within, not just the surface area. Brilliant for sun protection and will continually protect providing you apply it on a regular basis.

Buy them in 12 packs for substantial savings.

Eos Lip Balm Sweet Mint Smooth Sphere

This is the best eos lip balm - the most popular and the most highly rated overall. This one's the mint flavored balm and it caused quite the stir when it first appeared. It's a consistently good brand, lacking in petroleum jelly and parabens and a great soothing and moisturizing product.

I love the little pots, they're quirky and innovative and the contents are absolutely heavenly. This is my personal favorite - for a non tinted lip balm - and I can't rate it high enough. It contains shea butter, jojoba and vitamin E ... all are the best ingredients for repairing, hydrating and turning your lips from cracked horrors into smooth and silky pouts. Gorgeous stuff - and well worth the purchase price. You won't be disappointed.

Savannah Bee Company Certified Organic Earl Grey Beeswax Lip Balm

This is the best 100% organic lip balm. It's a certified organic product so you are assured that it's non-animal tested, chemical free and produced and processed as naturally as nature intended. The main ingredients are propolis ( a naturally occurring sap found in the buds of some trees), beeswax and pecan oil.

It both penetrates and seals in moisture, so you're getting an intense moisturizing action that's non-greasy and lacking a waxy feel. It beautifully conditions, leaving dry lips soft, supple and rejuvenated. I recommend this product over the Burt's Bees - despite the fact that it's more expensive size wise. Definitely worth it if you are into saving the planet.

Nivea a Kiss of Flavor Cherry Tinted Lip Care

This is the best selling tinted lip balm - and my personal favorite. I use both this one and the Pearly Shimmer chapstick, more days than I don't. Having used Nivea for years I've never had a problem with cracked or dry lips and can usually be found with at least one tube in every coat pocket or purse ... just in case.

This one leaves a hint of a red tint, which adds a perfect touch of color that enhances the look of your lips. It's moisturizing and protective properties are wonderful - it's absorbs well, you don't have to re-apply it every five minutes and the tint hangs around as long as the lip balm is on your lips. A big favorite - one to buy.
