I am quite the lip balm connoisseur, and recently when purchasing a new haul of lip balms from iherb, I had the revelation that I have probably tried most of the best lip balms accessible from around the world. I’ve still got a few more to try, so I’ve divided this into two articles – this being the first one. If you have a world’s best lip balm that you think I need to try, comment below and let me know.
Blistex is a fairly standard run of the mill drugstore lip balm. Overall it does the job and has a pleasant taste and fragrance.
Much the same as Blistex but with more variety (including shimmer and tinted).
Petroleum Jelly, not that good for you but oh so effective.
9. Maybelline Baby Lips
This really does help with soft lips and offers some cute coloured options.
8. Burt’s Bees
This one only makes the list because it does have natural ingredients and offer SPF options. The formula however is not one I thought much of.
7. Bon Bon
This brand offers tasty natural and cruelty free lip balms. The only drawback is they’re in a tin.
6. Living Nature
Their lip hydrator is shimmery and looks lovely in the packaging and is reasonably hydrating.
These natural minty lip balms are a basic essential. No frills but good performance.
4. Crazy Rumors
So many delicious flavors, cruelty free, natural and vegan. There are a tasty option but dry out a bit over time.
3. Lucas Pawpaw
Pawpaw ointment is pretty darn good and can be used on more than just the lips. The drawback, it still has petroleum jelly in it.
2. Nature’s Own
Another pawpaw brand but cheaper, comes in cute mini lip balms and has no petroleum jelly in it.
Hurraw has a different shaped lip balm tube, but it works and the seed oil is smooth and hydrating. My favorite is the licorice lip balm but they are all tasty. The tinted ones don’t have much color though.
EOS, Badger, Carmex and more.
