9 Of The Best Lip Balms I Have Tried

We all have our go-tos, I have 9.

I have to admit I am a lip balm connoisseur. Scattered around my bedroom are multiple balms in multiple scents. As someone with constantly dry lips, it has become my goal to find the perfect lip balm. I have grown to decipher what's good and what doesn't work. My case is that the perfect lip balm doesn't exist, simply because there are so many to choose from. The following balms are tried and true, well-loved products of mine, ones that I know will always save me as the dryer seasons creep up.

1. Bite Beauty's Agave Lip Mask.

This lip mask is what got me through last Winter. It is thick, buttery, soothing, and it smells so good. It is best to lather on at night, but it can also be worn out in the daytime. It comes in a variety of scents and colors. My favorite scent is lavender.

2. Burts Bees Tinted Lip Balm. 

This version of the classic beeswax chapstick is by far better than the original. Coming in 6 different colors, it leaves a subtle tint on the lips while also keeping them moisturized all day. Its unique scent and buttery texture make it my favorite for day to day wear, and as an alternative to lipstick.

3. Glossier Balm Dotcom. 

I was curious if the $12 tube of lip balm was worth the hype, but now I am here to tell you, it is. Balm Dotcom comes in a variety of scents, flavors, and tints. With moisture lasting for hours, its glossy finish matched with subtle color makes the perfect combination for on the go application. Mango and Birthday are my favorite scents.

4. Smith's Rosebud Salve. 

I remember stealing my first tin of Smith's out of my mom's purse and loving every last drop of it. This balm has a specific scent and texture, incomparable to anything else. It is thick and buttery, leaving the slightest pink tint on the lips.

5. Caudalie Lip Conditioner. 

Caudalie is a luxurious French skincare company that never fails at providing silky smooth, lightly scented products. Their lip conditioner is a citrus dream, leaving the lips soft and smooth. The little tube of lip conditioner is probably their cheapest product and is one of my favorites when I need something light.

6. Vasiline lip therapy. 

Coming in the option of a tiny Vaseline jar or tin, this lip balm is the best therapy for overly dry lips. Its extremely thick texture provides a smooth layer of moisture lasting for a while. I like to apply it at night so I can wake up with plump, hydrated lips. The rose and cocoa butter scents are my favorite.

7. Dr. Bronner's Organic Lip Balm. 

I picked up Dr. Bronner's lip balm in peppermint on a whim, but it has been my favorite minty balm since. It resembles a basic chapstick but leaves the lips feeling tingly and medicated. Although the oily texture is not for everyone, I think it is a great organic option.

8. Aquaphor. 

Aquaphor is used as an older hack to rescue parched lips. It's actually still one of my favorites because of how easily accessible it is, and because it really works. Similar to Vaseline, it applies in a thick layer. The moister settles for a little bit, but throughout the day is absorbed into the lips, making them feel comfortable and hydrated.

9. Nivea lip care. 

As an inexpensive classic lip balm, Nivea's variety of scents and flavors are some of my most loved. The twisty tube makes for easy application and the light moisture is almost luxurious feeling.

My lip balm obsession may not be justified, but I hope to have introduced some new favorites for you. Taking care of your lips will make your days more manageable, and you might as well have some fun scents and colors too.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

17 Things To Make You Feel GOOD This Week

Because some purchases are just necessary.

Y'all, we're struggling. You don't even have to tell me, I know. What a mess we're all in, right? This year is not going how we planned and the world has turned into one giant struggle bus. I guess you could be super philosophical about everything happening for a reason, but sometimes life is just hard.

There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping. This is obviously not going to solve the world's problems with one swift click of the "checkout" button, but hey, it may just give you the little boost you need today.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.
