Living in colder states like Michigan the winters can be especially drying for your skin and lips. This winter is the driest my lips have ever been. I used to use Vaseline to combat dry lips and while that helps, I feel that the moisture doesn’t last as long as with the new products I have found. The three best lip products I am absolutely loving now include a lip oil, lip balm, and lip ointment.
The first product I will mention is rosehip oil.
I started using rosehip oil for the benefits it has on the skin. It provides great moisture to the skin, so I decided to try it on my lips. My lips immediately felt softer and I could feel the oil absorb very quickly. It provides long lasting moisture which I love. I recommend buying the ordinary rosehip oil. It is a great product that doesn’t break out my skin and is only $10.
The second product I will mention is the Trader Joe’s Moisturizing Lip Balm Set.
I have used the burts bees lip balm since I was in middle school. While it is not a bad product, I prefer the Trader Joe’s Moisturizing Lip Balm Set much more. This lip balm set comes with six lip balms each with amazing scents. The scents included are Almond Cream, Strawberry Tangerine, Green Tea, Peppermint, Watermelon, and Raspberry Cream. The formula is super moisturizing and glides onto the lips easily. I honestly think it is more moisturizing than the Burt’s Bees lip balms. The value of this lip set is incredible, it only costs $5.99 for the whole set!
The last product I will mention is the Aquaphor healing ointment advanced therapy.
I have tried the Aquaphor lip repair ointment before and it was okay, but I didn’t love it. A friend of mine recommended using the Aquaphor healing ointment advanced therapy on my lips and I immediately loved it. It feels similar to Vaseline but less sticky and moisture lasts longer.
