Today we are going to talk about chapped lips. Unless you are from another Planet, this weather will leave you with chapped, dry lips. During the winter we can’t hibernate (fortunately, or we would miss Christmas) so we need to go outside to work, which means we are exposed to wind, cold and humidity – all of these elements leave us thinking how can we get rid of chapped lips.
We can’t forget that all that dry heat inside your house isn’t good to your lips. It makes them loose the natural hydration that the naturals oils provide.
Other than using a lip balm before night, you must drink a lot of water and try to not lick your lips all the time (remember that you’re not an Anastacia Steel!). For me, some matte lipsticks leave my lips also very dry!
The truth is, if we don’t take care, our lips can get dry, scaly and sore all the year. We can’t say that this only happens in Winter. But in this time of the year, I always take a special care. The lips are more sensitive than the rest of the skin, inflammation and open wounds can lead to infections, painful sores and fungus! blah
These are some lip Balms that I’ve been using. I can’t say that my lips are always smooth, but for the most, they are – and that’s all because of these babies!
Jane Scrivner | #morethanjustalipbalm
I don’t know how to express my love for this balm! This product is 100% Organic. It’s moisturising, hydrating and all you need to do is apply a generously amount of product to the lips on a daily basis. I use it every night before bed and I immediately feel my lips smooth and hydrated. Don’t worry, it’s not sticky and you won’t feel that heavy feelling that some balms gives.
It can also be used as a cuticle balm and an emergency spot balm too.
The first time I used it I felt a fresh sensation on my lips and that’s because it has Wild Mint Essential Oil. Check the ingredients (all natural, by the way):
Palm Kernel Oil, Beeswax, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Sunflower Oil, Glycerin, Jojoba Oil, Wild Mint Essential Oil, Rose Hip Oil, Vitamin E.
If you like effective and natural products, then this is for you!

Neutrogena | Immediate Repair Lip Balm
This product is enriched with Glycerin and emollient agents to immediately alleviate, intensely hydrate and repair the dry or irritated lips, as well as nostrils.
I love to use it when I’m sick. We all know that when we are sick, our lips stay dry, chapped, and sometimes they even crack. And the skin around the nose stays irritaded. This product is perfect for when that happens. its a two in one.
I also use it when I go on vancations to places where the temperature is negative. I apply it generously on the lips and (sometimes on nostrils) and I assure you that you will notice a big difference. It’s not sticky but it’s a little bit heavy, you will feel it – but yeah it’s very effective!

Sephora Collection | Lip Balm & Scrub – Honey
The Honey Lip Scrub, as the name says, is a lip balm that exfoliates and smooths lips. It has a scent of honey and you can also taste the honey (don’t eat it, please. This is not for consume. I know it smells good and the taste is not bad, but don’t!).
I use it twice a week and I can feel a great improve on my lips. It features gentle sugar exfoliants to smooth and soften lips, priming them for lipstick and other lip products. Which is good if you will use a matte lipstick.
I know that this is a scrub but it also has honey than smooth the lips and leave them very smooth. What I do is use this and after cleaning the excess, use the Jane Scrivner or the Yves Rocher Shea lip on top. The lips stays smooth for hours and ready for the lipstick.
Right now I have the Lanolips to try too… so expect a post about them!!!
What do you use when you have dry lips?
