The Lip Balm Guide to Super Hydration
Things to know-
1.If it has shea butter, it's got mega moisture, many of those listed below fall into this category.
2. The more thick, and viscous a balm, the more barrier protection from wind it will give you. Ones like the Clinique listed below as well as old standy Aquaphor which now comes in a handy lip treatment tube fit this type.
That said, here is my list of personal favorites that work in freezing cold. There are plenty other balms I love and use in milder, say 40-50 degree weather. But for the coldest times, these get highest marks. Links will go to my original review if there was one.
Philosophy Kiss me Tonight- Also should be called The Lifesaver or maybe LipSaver. This is meant as an overnight treatment, but can be used daytime as well, it just doesn't lend itself to being used under lipcolor. It's a thick, jelly balm which makes a coating on lips. Its stays there long and is super healing and softening with shea and mango butters One of the few products I keep a backup of.
