BellaSugar's Top Five Favorite Lip Balms

BellaSugar's Top Five Lip Balm Picks

I've written about my favorite lip balms before, but a year and a half has passed and I've got some newbies in the mix that I seriously can't live without. Lip balms are one of my all-time favorite products because they feel good and they provide instant relief all year round. Here are my top five picks (for now). What's your favorite?

  • This small, silver Molton Brown Vitamin Lip Saver ($18) is odorless and flavorless. It spreads easily, penetrates deeply and I often find it missing in my guy's dopp kit!
  • Some drugstore brands have got it right! This cool, roller-ball Blistex Cherry Splash ($2.89) is sweet, thin-textured and fast absorbing to correct dryness and chapping.
  • Bobbi Brown Extra ($55) is the most expensive salve of the bunch, but it works wonders on my cuticles, elbows hands and on my lips. I can't seem to stay away from the subtle geranium smell and thick shea butter formula.
  • Lancome's Baume Baiser ($25) came out as part of the Mystery Game collection. Although it's no longer in stock, you can still find a few of these indulgent padded soft rose-marshmallow scented lip balms online in the UK (and have it shipped).
  • A year and a half later, one of my faves is still the amazingly nourishing Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment ($22.50). It lasts long, it's thick, it smells amazing, and I'm the first to admit that I'm a sucker for the cool screw-top cover.

though not technically a "lip balm" Estee Lauders 8 hour miracle cure is amazing, it works on any dry part of the body and I love to put it on my lips. elbows, and heels! Its a miracle for sure!

when i was younger and my lip barely needed a thing i used soft lips in cool cherry which i still fiend the smell along with jovan white musk, lol. now that i have grown up an need moisture i use neosporen lip treatment, it heals and moisturize and leave the mildest shine. I use it as a primer. some mentioned pouts discontinued superbalm which was sooo fantastic, went through 3 pots. mac's lip treatment is good but nars's is a bit more fantastic. for night i use vasoline :)

I'm definitely a lip balm junkie myself, so co-dependent. My ultimate favorite and most effective is Kiehls, Cranberry flavor in the tube form. I really hope the Cranberry isn't seasonal because I can't find it in the stores anymore!!! It's soo yummy smelling. Burt's Bees lip balm in the pot is really good too. Also, can't forget a favorite of that batty Naomi Campbell, the tried and true, Smith's Rosebud Salve. And when you're all done, which will take a while because there's so much, you can use the tin to put bobby pins or weed inside!

I like good old-fashioned Chapstick Moisturizing lip balm. But L'Occitane's shea butter lip balm is awesome as well!

I heart Rosebud Salve! My fav lip balm, it's actually beat out my lip gloss addiction. I love that when I have some left over I can rub it all over my cuticles, that it makes my lips all glossy looking & healthy, especially since I bite my lips as a nervous habit so they need all the help they can get. :)

By far, THE best lip balm I've used to date is LipSaver by Aveda. It's incredibly rich, emollient, lasts forever, and has a great smell/flavor. Love Aveda :)

Burt's Bees is #1 for me! I have to keep one at work, home, and my car.

i love burt's bees original lip balm, although occasionally my lips crave blistex medicated lip ointment. started putting that on at night like i did in high school. i also love blistex DCT. discovered this when i was on accutane for acne, which dries out everything.

I've tried more than I'd care to admit. I'm a lip balm junkie. My favourite one to date is Mark Kiss Therapy balm. It's waaaaay better than rosebud salve and the honey rose scent is amazing. A close runner up is Karite-lips Shea Butter Vanilla lip blam. Texture wise, it reminds me of Fresh's Sugar balm, but i prefer this one.

God I love lip balm. My favorite for the past few years is Chanel's Hydrating Lip Treatment (Soin Tendre Levres). OMG I'm completely in love with it and apply it constantly. I also love the Blistex DCT, in the light pink-ish container. It works best when your lips are chapped from either the wind or sun.. it's the only one that helps in that situation. The Lancome looks so yummy, and I love the container. I also wanna try the Body Shop's Lip Butters. But they seem as tho they'd have that nasty sugary taste when you lick your lips. And I lick my lips alot so I try to stay away from those.

My favorite, which isn't mentioned is the Dr. Hauschka lip balm. Nothing has ever made my lips feel so good. I think it's typically $13.00 or so

I love the Burt's Bees Pomegranate lip balm...smells great and it's really soothing. I also love Smith's Strawberry Salve/lip balm. Those Tarte 24/7 Lip Sheers are also awesome.
