Tuesday Ten: Lip Balms

One essential product in the dry season is lip balm, with most pouts left cracked, dry and in need of moisture due to the weather. For today’s Tuesday Ten, we’ve found ten of the best lip balms (some even have an SPF) to combat dryness and provide soothing protection from the elements…


  1. Beecology Lemon Lavender Lip Balm, $2.99.
    Lavender and lemon – need I say any more?! Relaxing and invigorating qualities combined within an already amazing lip balm that stays on your lips all day… #MoreBangForYourBuck
  2. Laura Mercier Lip Balm, $20.
    It’s sheer and adds the perfect amount of moisture and softness – perfect for use under or over lipstick. It also gives a nice sheen to bare lips if you’re seeking a soft nude look.
  3. Benefit Benetint Lip Balm SPF 15, $44.99.
    Created from the legendary cult-followed product Benetint, this rose-tinted translucent shade perks up lips with a hint of colour, leaving a smooth, shiny, rose-hued finish.
  4. Smith’s Minted Rose Balm, $7.
    This update on the original Rose Balm by Smith’s, this minted pot of magic instantly soothes chapped lips – and, it can be used on the hands.
  5. Chapstick Active Ultra 30 Skin Protectant/Sunscreen, $2.99.
    Complete with SPF 30, this lip balm’s waxy texture gives shows serious staying power, but while we like it’s soothing/protecting properties it does leave a whitish finish, so maybe save it for straight up outdoor activity that don’t require selfies…
  6. Blistex Ultra Lip Balm SPF 30+, $3.39.
    This product gives lips an extra level of protection but with a light weight, barely there feel. It’s also water resistant and great for sensitive lips. #ToughButGentle
  7. Nivea ‘Kiss of Protection’ Lip Care SPF 30, $2.99
    With a high SPF that provides protection from both UVA and UVB rays, this balm has sun lovers covered in the sun. It glides on easily, feels smooth and leaves lips supple – not feeling cakey. We like.
  8. Blistex Lip Medex, $1.29.
    The instant relief this lip balm brings releif to painful, chapped lips and has everyone who tries it hooked after one use. Try it and put its popular properties to the test.
  9. Clinique Superbalm Lip Treatment, $13.50.
    Clinique’s Superbalm gives an extremely unique shine to pouts and is also great as a night-time lip treatment. Multitasking and prettifying? A definite must-try.
  10. C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve, $5.50.
    Without being sticky, this balm feels moisturising from first application and smells utterly amazing. It also cushions lips beautifully and comfortably, leaving a flattering rose tint, so save room for Bigelow’s salve in your handbag.
