I have a love-hate relationship with winter, my ideal weather is cold and snowy but winter dries
out my skin, scalp and most of all, my lips. Here are nine of my favorite hydrating lip products
for combatting winter.
My best friend during the winter is Burt's Bees chapstick. I apply it multiple times a day, every
day. Also, putting chapstick on your lips before applying lipstick helps ensure less product
accumulates in the cracks of your lips. This is my all-time favorite brand of chapstick.
Curology Lip Balm
Curology’s lip balm is another one of my winter staples. This product smells like
vanilla and has a waxy consistency. Yet, it comes in a small tin, so the only way to apply
it is through using your fingers which is slightly less sanitary than Burt’s Bees.
Nonetheless, this product works well for me, and the scent smells delicious.
Vaseline Lip Therapy
Vaseline is my other great friend during the winter time. I put this on every night before I go
to bed in order to ensure that my lips do not crack or bleed. It also works great as
a base for lipstick, helping to ensure your lipstick stays on longer. Vaseline also comes in
different colors, which is a plus!
Nivea A Kiss of Care & Color
I wear this product on a daily basis to school. Basically, Nivea combines a hydrating lip
balm and lip tint together, creating a lip care product that tints and deeply hydrate lips. Nivea
also comes in many colors, my favorite is Sheer Berry.
Royal Apothic’s Tinties Lip Butter
Royal Apothic’s Tinites Lip Butter is one of the most hydrating lip butters that I
have tried. Also, the packaging is very cute, it comes in a small, decorative pod. The lip butter
comes in several different shades. I have the shade 'Nude' because I often wear nudes or dark
berries in the winter.
Clinique Chubby Stick
Clinque’s Chubby Sticks are the perfect moisturizing lip product in the winter, if you
want something with a tint of color. These were the first lip tinted products that I owned,
and I am still hooked. Also, they have a relatively sheer color payoff, so, if you’re not
fully awake when you’re putting it on, it won’t be that noticeable if you make a mistake.
Tarte LipSurgence Lip Crème
This product has a smooth, creamy texture, which is perfect for dry lips! The color also
stays on longer than most other lip crèmes.
Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick
I am a huge fan of Tarte. Their packaging and products are absolutely amazing! This lipstick
though, is my favorite product from Tarte after their blushes. The lipstick is very hydrating as the
lipstick has a lot of moisture built into it . Also, though the color pigment is not as strong as other
lipsticks, the hydration benefits are incredible! I have this in the color Angelic Nude and highly
Make Up For Ever’s Rouge Artist Natural
This lipstick combines moisture and a creamy texture for the perfect quick fix for
chapped lips. It also has a nice color pigment and comes in multiple hues.
