A really great lip balm is a key step of any routine year-round, but this time of year? They're a must-have when it comes to preventing dry, chapped, and/or cracked lips as a result of bitter winter weather and constantly wearing masks.
Another thing to note: While the plastic tubes and sticks may seem one and the same, the truth is that they very much are not. Sure, you could head to the drugstore and grab the closest formula to the checkout line, but there are so many lip balms on the market, why not consider all your options instead?
We rounded up 18 of the best lip balms money can buy, at every price point. From the cutest novelty packaging to the OG picks, and even a couple of tinted choices, you'll be sure to find something that suits you, ahead.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
