Admittedly, if you went through our purses right now, you’d probably find a pile of half-used lip balms loosely floating around at the bottom. As far as we’re concerned, it’s seemingly impossible to have too many lip balms during any time of year, but when the weather turns cold, we double down. Come winter, we cling to the most moisturizing lip balms we can find in the hopes of alleviating our dehydrated, dry or chapped lips. Ahead, you’ll find a list of our favorite hydrating lip balms guaranteed to give your winter lips the extra love and moisture they deserve.
