While we’re all quick to moisture our face and body during the winter, our lips can often feel left out of the mix. Don’t let your lips suffer from the icy temperatures and try some of our favourite products which will heal them in no-time!
Lanolips Banana Balm 3-in-1, $15.99
If you’re looking for an affordable drugstore lip balm, Lanolips is the perfect option. Their poplar Banana Balm 3-in-1 protects lips, plus gives them an extra amount of shine so you don’t have to use any other products. Get it while you can – it’s always sold out!
By Terry Baume De Rose SPF15, $78
A little on the pricey side, this is a cult-favourite for a good reason! The super soft formula is ideal for those suffering from dry, chapped lips and can also be used as a base for lipstick. It’s extremely hydrating with a hint of rose, which is perfect for all occasions.
Dr Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips, $26.80

Luca’s Pawpaw Ointment, $4.99
We’re closing off this list with an essential that all women need to have in their handbag: pawpaw ointment. The multipurpose balm is made to cure cracked lips, but can also be used on burns, cuts, nappy rash and bites.

Admit it, taking care of your lips is probably the last thing you want to be doing.
Even though it takes just a few minutes to exfoliate and apply a balm before going to bed, this can often be forgotten (especially if you just want to hit the sack). If your lips are looking a little worse for wear, try some of these hydrating lip products which will repair them in no-time.
La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Lips, $13
A intense formula enriched with natural vitamins to cure chapped, dry lips overnight. The fragrance-free formula is perfect for those suffering from sensitive skin, since it won’t interfere with your current routine, or leave a nasty smell. Used as a high-strength formula for patients on Roaccutane.
Nuxe Reve De Miel, $19.99
Now you’ve probably heard us proclaim our love for this product before, but it’s just so good!
The formula dries matte, and leaves lips feeling so soft and silky. Apply a tiny amount before going to bed, or use it to prime your lips before applying lipstick. There is also a stick balm, which unfortunately is only sold in the United States and Europe.
Avene Cicalfate Restorative Skin Cream, $9.59
Packed with various antibacterial properties, Cicalfate is the ultimate 2-in-1 skincare secret suitable for the entire body. Apply a tiny amount (a grain of rice), and massage in circular motions over the skin.
Philosophy Kiss Me Tonight Intense Lip Therapy, $22
A luxurious overnight treatment which helps to repair lips by conditioning and soothing. Packed with nourishing shea and mango butter for a pleasant smell which lingers all night long.
L’Occitane Shea Ultra Rich Lip Balm, $15
A heavy duty formula ideal for the colder weather, and helps to repair broken lips. Apply over clean, dry lips before going to bed for best results. Use daily until lips are completely repaired, or apply onto other dry patches on the face and body.
