It’s the middle of winter and your lips are cracked and starting to bleed, yuck. Well, here are three solutions that will turn your dry lips soft.
1. Evolution of Smooth Lip Balms
When you’re at home, relaxing or running round doing chores, and notice that your lips are chapped, you should immediately reach for an EOS lip balm. They’re small, moisturizing, and come in a variety of flavors. They’ll fit in purses, pockets, backpacks, etc., and they’re uniquely shaped, so no confusing a pen for your lip balm anymore. See, https://www.amazon.com/EOS-Organic-Lip-Balm-Pomegranate/dp/B00B6A9KTU.
There are a dozen of the regular spheres [on Ulta] and then there are the specialized ones that have shimmer or SPF (who doesn’t want protected lips?). They also have some stick lip balms for those of you that don’t like the sphere. Plus their flavors sound delicious. Vanilla mint or blackberry nectar anyone?

2. Bare Minerals Best Friend XOX Lip Balms
This is a go-to lip balm for when you’re best friend is arriving in 5 minutes to take you out for the night and you don’t want to sacrifice the perfect lip color, but your lipsticks are too drying.
This lip balm smells great and is heavily pigmented, for a lip balm. When you first put it on, it’s creamy and moisturizing enough to slide over any dryness without showing flakes and within a few hours your lips will feel baby smooth. Unfortunately, there are only a handful of colors.
3. Coconut Oil
You’re thinking, really? Coconut oil? The stuff sitting in my kitchen?
The answer is yes. The (hopefully organic) coconut oil that you use to cook makes an amazing moisturizer. It’s heavy and slippery though, so it’s best used at night as a deep moisturizer for your lips. When you wake up in the morning your lips will be smooth and coconut-y!
