By Somdutta Mazumder

Lipsticks have always won the popular choice award in the category of lip care and beauty products. From jet-matte, to gloss, to creamy-bases, all of us probably have a hundred different tubes lying around in our bags. But if we focused on the care part in lip care a tad more intently, lip balms would emerge as your oldest best friend. Especially considering we don't really need to put on a great matte shade at home, but hydrating chapped, flaky lips in this weather? Very crucial. 

 

If you have an almost chronic habit of licking and subsequently drying out your lips, your pucker is probably suffering. And right now, when most of us aren't meeting people or leaving the house at all, is an opportune time to give your lips some much-needed moisturising therapy. To get your lips to the pinkest of their health, we've rounded up our 7 favourite lip balms in the market right now. They are softening, reviving and protecting, and also, smell amazing. 

 

1. The Body Shop Vitamin E Lip Care SPF 15

 

Price 

4.2 gm at INR 395 

 

Why We Recommend It  

Owing to its creamy consistency, this lip balm does its job in just a light dash. It's super moisturising and the hydrating effect in this stick lasts longer than a lot of lip balms in the market. Some lip products also tend to drawn out the moisture from your lips, but not this one. This Body Shop Lip balm comes with SPF 15, and we could all use some extra protection during these hot sunny days. Especially for people who aren't fond of strong smells in their lip products, this one comes with a very mild vanilla fragrance.

2. Kama Ayurveda Almond And Coconut Lip Balm

 

Price 

5 gm at INR 575

 

Why We Recommend It 

Kama lip balms are extremely high quality, so if you're willing to shell out a few extra bucks for lip care, this is a luxurious lip balm you should go for. This lip balm is very quick to remove any dryness from the lips, supplying them with moisture, and sealing it in to make your pucker plump and healthy. Loyal users have also claimed to have seen a reduction in pigmentation on the lips. The texture of this lip balm is light and smooth, yet it manages to stay put even in the most humid of places. And the almond coconut smell is to die for!

3. Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Lip Moisturizer SPF 15

Why We Recommend It  

This lip moisturizer by Neutrogena does exactly what it claims in its name. The hydrating formula soothes and heals chapped lips, softens flaking pouts, and conditions the lips to become healthy and nourished. It has a light texture that does not leave a coat of wax on the lips, and it doesn't have any fragrance or tint, so you can also use this lip balm as a hydrating primer below a layer of lipstick. It also has a paraben-free SPF 15 sunblock to protect your lips against harsh weather.
