Luscious Lip Balms

As you all know, I am a lip gloss addict, but let's not forget where this fetish started. For me, it was when I discovered the original ChapStick. I loved the way it felt, but—looking for something smoother and less waxy—I soon moved onto Vaseline. Now, my addiction has evolved into something more modern and adult (not to mention more expensive). Here are my top picks for ultra-luxurious lip balms. (I'd love to hear about your favorites, too!)

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment with SPF 15 was named "Best Lip Balm" by Allure magazine, and it's called "Sugar" to boot. But I love it because it glides ever-so-smoothly onto your lips, moisturizing them, plumping them a little, and making them taste and smell yummy. The experience makes $22.50 seem like a very reasonable price for lip balm. Plus, it has this innovative screw on cap, so it doesn't ooze all over the place. Buy it here for $22.50.

Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25 is made for men, but with avocado oil, lanolin, Vitamin E, green tea extract, and shea butter, it's great for soothing anyone's dry, chapped lips. The balm penetrates quickly to provide instant relief, and the SPF 25 makes it perfect for spending the day outside. It's not sticky, and the strong mint scent right under your nose makes for a fresh and crisp feeling. Buy it here for $6.50.

To see the rest,

Laura Mercier's Lip Treatment Kit comes in a package of two. The first part is all about polishing and exfoliating; I never thought this would make a difference, but my lips are instantly smoother and softer. The second tube is a lip conditioner with a rich, creamy texture to moisturize and hydrate the skin. Buy it here for $28.

John Allan's Lip—also created for men—is last but definitely not least. This spearmint-lime balm tastes and smells absolutely delicious. The mixture of green tea, ginseng, and coconut oil make your lips soft, supple, and kissable. Buy it here for $7.

I can't believe no one has mentioned Burt's Bees Beeswax Lipbalm. It's absolutely a must before bed! Burt's Bees also makes Lip Shimmers, which are basically the Beeswax Lipbalm with just a hint of color, perfect for daytime. My friends & I are addicted!

I can vouch for the Sugar lip balm, it's great! It's rich, and has a nice taste. I made the mistake of leaving it in my car though...came back and it was a melted mess.

I like the C.O. Bigelow "my favorite lip balm". I'm addicted. I have the favorite and a couple of the mint ones as well.
