Lip balm addicts unite. There is no shortage of terrific lip balms on the market. It’s probably the beauty product I consume the most. Here are my tried and true favorite lip balms and treatments that I repurchase and recommend.

Best Lip Balms & Treatments

LA MER, The Lip Balm – I’m reluctant to recommend this due to its eye-popping price tag but I have to admit, it’s incredible.  There is something magic about it.  It’s rich, very moisturizing and has a matte finish which I appreciate.  Lip balm addicts out there wanting a real treat can find it wherever LA MER is sold.

Clarins Lip Perfectors – I often have these tubes stashed in various handbags and pockets.  There is a wide range of sheer shades.  You don’t need a mirror to apply this which is great when you want to slip a lip color into your pocket and go.

eight hour cream Lanolips dr. Lipp best lip balm

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream – I have used this for years. Some people don’t care for the smell. I love it.  It can be used anywhere on the body to treat dry, cracked skin. I use it mostly as a lip treatment.  It’s a real hero product. Available at most department stores or online.  

Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Treatment – Incredibly moisturizing and I love the lemony taste. Delicious. At Ulta.

Dr. Lipp – I’ve included two nipple creams on this list. Originally created as a nipple cream for breastfeeding mothers, Dr. Lipp is deeply rich and moisturizing on the lips as well.  The tube will last for months.  Available at Walgreens.

nuxe French best lip balm

NUXE Nourishing Lip Balm – Another matte finish lip balm. I keep it on my bedside table to use it at night.  It can crystalize pretty quickly and that can be annoying.  It’s a fantastic balm if you can deal with the changing texture.  NUXE is a wonderful French pharmacy brand with a luxurious range that’s readily available online.

sugar lip treatment

L’Occitane Lip Balm – L’Occitane releases different scents and flavors of their incredibly moisturizing lip balms. This jasmine and neroli one was a Christmas edition. The Cherry Blossom lip balm out now is divine.  

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Petal – Higher priced than most lip balms but they do smell wonderful and have an SPF 15. They are slightly tinted and have a fresh taste. At Sephora.

lineage sleeping mask best lip balm

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask – An incredible lip mask and one of my favorite beauty products. I love the texture. When I use this at night, my lips are still moisturized in the morning. Available at Sephora.

care nel sleeping mask lineage sleeping mask best lip mask

CARE:NEL Sleeping Mask – For an affordable K-Beauty dupe to the Laneige Sleeping Mask, I recommend this set of three minis for $10. The texture and results are the same. Available on Amazon.

lanolin nipple cream best lip balm

Lansinoh Lanolin Nipple Cream – $8 for three minis is a terrific buy for this moisturizing ointment to soothe dry lips or nipples. Available on Amazon.

Best Drugstore Lip Balms

Neutrogena hydro boost best lip balm

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Lip Treatment – A very moisturizing lip balm at an affordable price. An excellent budget beauty option. Available at drugstores.

Aquophor lip ointment best for chapped lips

Aquaphor Healing Ointment – To treat extremely chapped lips or for prevention, Aquaphor will save your lips. Available at drugstores.

Carmex best lip balm for chapped lips

Carmex Classic Lip Balm – I buy in bulk and I buy often. I’ll admit, I am a Carmex addict and have tubes strategically placed throughout the house, car, and various handbags. Cheap and oh so satisfying. Available at drugstores.
