You'll Be Happy to Find These Lip Balms in Your Coat Pockets
One of my favorite winter skin-care hacks consists of strategically placing lip balms in my coat pockets so my lips are covered when I'm out and they feel super dry. Since I'm prone to chapped lips and the products in my handbag (and throughout my apartment) will inevitably go missing at some point during the chilly season, this trick has really come through for me.
It's not quite the same magical feeling as finding a $10 bill by surprise, but I've certainly never been disappointed at the discovery of a balm in my pocket. For the record, I feel the same way about hair ties.
In the event that you like to stock your pockets with balm too (or just need more lip balm in general), these products below might be worth adding to your shopping cart.
Well People Lip Nurture Hydrating Balm
The Well People Lip Nurture Hydrating Balm ($12) is available in six different shades, including clear, and hydrates the lips with the help of ingredients like castor-seed oil, shea butter, and coconut oil. The pigmented shades leave behind a subtle tint of color too.
e.l.f. Cosmetics Ride or Die Lip Balm
The e.l.f. Cosmetics Ride or Die Lip Balm ($5) offers so much, and hydration via jojoba oil is just the start of it! The affordable formula is available in seven different shades that all have a different delectable scent. For instance, this shade, Grapefruit Goals, imparts a sheer wash of pink pigment to lips and smells like the fruit!
Keys Soulcare Comforting Balm With Camellia Seed Oil
The beauty of the Keys Soulcare Comforting Balm With Camellia Seed Oil ($12) is that it can be used on the lips but also on other areas of the face and body that need moisture. Since it's packaged in a tiny container, you'll want to make sure your hands are clean each time you use it!
e.l.f. Cosmetics Bite-Size Lip Balm
Big things come in small packages, and the e.l.f. Cosmetics Bite-Size Lip Balm ($4) is proof. Available in four shades, the compact balm is designed to moisturize, smooth, and soften lips all while leaving behind a tint of color.
e.l.f. Cosmetics Hydrating Core Lip Shine
If you want slightly more color payoff from your lip balm, consider the e.l.f. Cosmetics Hydrating Core Lip Shine ($6), which is available in eight different shades. The tiny heart in the center of the balm features a vitamin E-infused formula to soothe, soften, and moisturize lips.
