Let me tell you, it’s cold as Antarctica here in the city. A stark change from the mild fall temperatures the city had over Christmas and the fact that I was literally wearing my Birkenstocks up until two weeks ago. During these frigid months, lip balms are a must and I have no less than 4 in rotation at any given time. One in my purse, one at the office, one on my nightstand and one in the bathroom. It’s incredible how all are completely necessary!
Since I’ve become pretty particular about my natural beauty products, the hunt for a non-toxic lip balm was high on my list this year. It took some trial and error…. not all are created equal. I don’t want to have to reapply every 30 seconds to feel like my lips are moisturized. Who has time for that?
I decided to compile a list of the best natural lip balms - in my opinion!
Honest Company: Mrs. Alba has obviously built quite the empire with this brand. These lip balms are compact, easy to take anywhere and the lavender mint is my favorite!
Juice Beauty Organic Lip Moisturizer: All of these lip balms are clean and safe for kids, which is the best part about natural products, but this is Parker's go-to 'lipstick'.... as she calls it.
S.W. Basics - Cream: Is this a miracle product? Yes. Yes it is. I use it on my lips, dry skin, under my eyes and on any skin irritations Parker gets. It only has three ingredients and this brand is available at Target! They are based out of Brooklyn and have a whole line of amazing natural products. The founder is also the author of 'Skin Cleanse', which I recommend everyone to read.
Grown Alchemist: With the beauty of an Aesop container, this lip balm is blended with Sweet Almond and Rose Hip Oils rich in essential fatty acids, as well as Shea Butter and Jojoba Oils to counter the effects of the harsh winter conditions.
Savannah Bee Beeswax Lip Balm: Unlike other balms that can be sticky to apply, the lightweight consistency of this balm makes it feel like so soft and easy to apply all day every day.
Burts Bees:The tinted balm is my favorite as it adds a bit of color along with the hydration. Great for those times when you don't want the full-on lipstick look.
Olio E Osso Balm: Another one of those jack-of-all-trade balms, some swear this also tames flyaways and unruly eyebrows, conditions cuticles and relieves dry skin.
Beauty Counter Lip Conditioner: The most legit lip conditioner I've ever experienced. If you want a more compact option, they have a smaller lip balm you could opt for. Different formula, but still effective!
