8 Lip Balms to Soothe Your Dry Lips

Between your growing obsession for liquid lipsticks and the summer heat, we won’t be surprised if your lips are cracked and often dry. Aside from reaching for more water and exfoliating your lips at night, you should have a trusty lip balm at hand.

It still pays off to wear a nourishing lip balm under your lipstick or even alone since some formulations come with a nice tint to them for a plump and juicy effect. If you’re confused on which one to get for yourself, we listed eight lip balms to see you through the coming days and our verdict on which is best for your different concerns.
