15 of the best lip balms for smooth, soft, and kissable lips


TextLouise Whitbread

These hydrating heroes are a must-have everyday essential

No one has time for dry, chapped lips; they disrupt make-up, and leave skin feeling sore and uncomfortable. It doesn’t help that cold winter weather and central heated homes only exacerbate the issue, but it needn’t be a case of simply putting up with discomfort. 

Instead there’s an unending amount of choice for luxurious balms that soothe dry skin and leave lips looking plump and hydrated. We’ve handpicked and reviewed the very best, from lavish treats to budget-friendly buys, packed with nourishing ingredients that aren’t greasy or sticky in the slightest. 

Below are Dazed Beauty’s 15 favourites, from Augustinus Bader, Glossier, La Roche-Posay, Pat McGrath Labs, and more.
