Show your lips a little extra love this fall by swapping your regular chapstick for a pot of creamy, luxurious balm. Colder temperatures and windy weather are a lipstick lover's worst enemy, and lips need extra protection throughout the cooler months to avoid that dreaded cracking and peeling. The best balms combine a luscious, moisture-packed formula with healing oils that naturally soften and exfoliate while protecting against dry, cold air. Prep lips by gently scrubbing with a warm washcloth, then pop on a rich, healing balm before bed. Wake up to a smooth, soft pout that's ready to take on this fall's brightest lippie looks in style.
Our top four balms are all cult favorites in the beauty world. Beloved by beauty editors, make-up artists and skincare gurus, we think their pretty pots deserve a special spot on your desk or bedside table this fall....
