    Promising review: "I return most of the beauty products I buy because most of them don't work. This one does. It makes my lips really soft and smooth, and lipstick goes on easier. I live in a dry climate so my lips tend to be dry too, and this really helps. It smells really nice and doesn't leave a weird aftertaste." —ChelseaGirl

    Promising review: "Omg whatever they do with their formula, keep it. This stuff just beat out Burt's Bees for me. Less expensive and the smells are lovely. The mango papaya is one of my favorite scents in this collection. It goes on like butter, stays on, and doesn't feel oily. I'd highly recommend and I will be buying again when I start running out!" —Skn1989

    Get it from Amazon for $6.94 (for a pack of six).

    Promising review: "My daughter LOVES this stuff. She is taking acne medication (Accutane) with horrible dry skins effects and this is the only lip balm that works on her lips. She carries a tube with her everywhere. She tried so many other products until her doctor recommended this. She is a true believer!!" —D. Schulz

    Get it from Amazon for $2.99+.

    4. DHC Lip Cream softens with a blend of botanicals, aloe, and olive oil to prevent the drying effect of matte lipstick if you apply it underneath.


    Promising review: "Most lip balms dry your lips out so you have to keep putting more on. This lip cream keeps my lips moist and keeps them from getting dried out. My husband uses it too! His lips get very dry, and he is secure enough to carry the other stick with him and use it. It's really a wonderful balm, it just absorbs right into my lips." —Cuileogcailin banaltra

    Get it from Amazon for $14.14 (for a pack of two).

    5. Aritaum Ginger Overnight Lip Mask has shea butter, beeswax, and murumuru butter to hydrate your chapped lips while you sleep so they can be soft as hell whenever it's time to apply makeup.


    Promising review: "Fantastic. Thick as all heck, but it works. I live in an area where winters are cold and dry. The type that if you don't have a humidifier you will wake up with a bloody nose. I use this lip mask overnight to make my lips as soft as possible, but I've even begun using it during the day by putting on a layer of this lip mask, and then a layer of vaseline to make it a little more manageable (since it is so sticky). This has been my go-to and for the first time ever I haven't had dry lips that crack." —Michelle M

    Get it from Amazon for $7.58.

    6. Burt's Bees Moisturizing Lip Balm uses vitamin E and peppermint oil to refresh your lips.

    @burtsbees / Via

    Promising review: "I have been using this for well over a decade. I've tried many many other lip balms and treatments but continue to go back to this, my holy grail! It has a thick consistency and stays on much longer than others. The refreshing peppermint is soothing when my lips are cracked and painful. This multipack is the best value I have found. I keep one in my bathroom, bedroom, purse, and kitchen. I use it every single night before going to bed and wake up with improved lips. They get very chapped during the winters. Can't be without it!" —Jhall626

    Get it from Amazon for $8.57 (for a pack of four).

    7. Fenty Beauty Pro Kiss'r Lip-Loving Scrubstick uses apricot seeds to softly exfoliate and smooth dead skin so your lips can feel like two soft clouds. It's also cruelty-free!


    Promising review: "Honestly, Fenty is out here putting out some really dope quality products. I love to wear lipstick, especially pigmented liquid lipsticks, and this scrub has been a game-changer to my lip exfoliating game! Like the gloss bomb, this is a new staple to my go-every-with-me lip kit!" —Symbai

    Get it from Sephora for $16.

    8. Matcha Moisturizing Lip Balm provides intense hydration and protecting them from drying by healing cracked and damaged lips with matcha tea.


    Promising review: "It really works! I have had dry lips most of my life. I get married in two months and when I went to do my makeup trial my lipstick looked horrible because of my dry lips! I was worried because I do use chapstick! I started using this product and OMG it’s amazing! My lips look so good! Even my soon to be husband kissed me and said my lips when so soft and smooth 😱😍 I love this product! And my lips will look great for the wedding!" —Pen Name

    Promising review: "I have used many different lip balms before and gave up after a while because they either did not work or felt too cake-y on my lips. This product does not fall under either one of those categories. Each have a beautiful scent, glide on smoothly, and keep my lips moisturized the entire day — without re-application! I will only be using this product line going forward. Thank you Sky Organics!" —Vanessa G.

    11. Genuva 24K Gold Lip Mask contains collagen that'll nourish and lightly plump dry and chapped lips.


    Promising review: "I’ve used lots of them before and these are my favorite. I mean, you have to have realistic expectations; it’s not going to fill in lips like crazy but it is good to do before bed or in the am before your makeup application. My lipstick went on really smooth and I feel super hydrated. I really like to put them in the fridge." —Amazon Customer

    @getjackblack / Via

    Promising review: "I am a beauty and cosmetics junkie, so let me tell you that this is one of the products I am married to!! I have re-purchased this lip balm more times than I can count, and I'm just going to keep doing that until they don't make it anymore! I love it because it is one of those lip balms that has staying power, so if I put it on my lips I can still feel it's moisture quite sometime after. I suffer from wintertime dry lips, definitely not helped by my liquid lipstick obsession, so sometimes I get a little bit raw and chapped in the corners; I swear this stuff has healing powers, clears it right up for me in no time!" —Tym Lo

    14. Hanalei Company Lip Treatment has shea butter, agave, and kukui oil to keep your lips feeling smooth and supple.


    Promising review: "I loved this so much, I've actually started advertising it to my friends and family. It's not like a traditional lip gloss. It isn't petroleum jelly, sitting on your lips and sticking to your hair every time the wind blows. It's more like a protective gel that heals your lips and keeps them in top condition. It smells amazing, isn't sticky, and doesn't leave an obvious shine on your face if you accidentally wipe your mouth. A little goes a long way. Seriously. This tube will last you for ages." —Lacey Kae

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! For some background, I have dry lips that tend to split in patches. This makes any lippie I put on look textured and TERRIBLE. Bubble Wrap softens them in seconds and makes them look smooth. Not just smooth, but PLUMP. I'll have to use a bit longer to comments on use as an eye cream, but do your lips a favor and pick up." —Rosieglasses

    Get it from Glossier for $26.

Also smells like a rose so happy I tried it!" —camy2770

    Promising review: "I have been using this lip balm since it hit the market in Korea. It is EVERYTHING. Moisture, glossy, not sticky, and so pleasant to smell / taste. My 7-year-old stole mine all the time, so I bought her one of her own. Totally a lifesaver for dry, chapped, and cracked lips, as well as a great upkeep product to keep lips healthy." —midge62680

    @laneige_us / Via

    Promising review: "I have really dry lips that peel every day! I think I found the perfect solution with this. It comes with a cute handy applicator, and I use it every day and night, and my lips are improving every day. They are almost normal now. Been using it for about 1.5 weeks, even under lipsticks and my lips look so much smoother and better. I know its a sleeping pack to be used at night, but I have such dry lip issues, I'm using it all the time. It really does stay on, unless you have a meal, then it needs to be reapplied. Nice fruity smell and a hint of sweetness. I'm just in love with this." —Happy Shopper :)

I have one in my night stand and one in my purse. It doesn't irritate my lips and it leaves them feeling soft and pampered. It's one of the only brands I've found that can truly solve the super-chapped lip problem that I sometimes have." —Karri
