Lip Balm Purchase Considerations

Buying lip balm is more confusing than ever before. There are now more choices than ever before and lip balms sell in a variety of different price points. Consideration of what constitutes a quality lip balm should involve the following factors.

Lip balms form a protective barrier on the skin of your lips that protect them from dry air and the outside elements. A thick topical layer of a lip balm will help to prevent the lips from drying out and will create a situation where they can retain the limited moisture that your lips do produce. Some brands such as the Evolution of Smooth have a very rich lip balm application, as demonstrated in the brand name, which goes on thick and prevents the seepage of moisture from the lips. This formed barrier can greatly reduce the chapped or dry nature of your lips and protect your lips from damage, particularly during the dry winter months. Make sure that the balm you choose can create an effective barrier to the elements.

All natural ingredients will also make a difference in the lip balm that you use. artificial additives will tend to dry out your lips and natural and organic products can make a real difference in your lip balm. Burt’s Bees and Evolution of Smooth excel here put a focus on keeping their products natural and have excelled here. That is why they want flavorful lip balm. These products are available on both Walmart and Ulta.

Finally be aware of the flavor options. Many people like lip balms that have a tasty yet subtle flavor that doesn’t overwhelm the lips and taste buds, particularly when they reapply the lip balm many times throughout the day. Other people like fruity or menthol flavors. Avoid peppermint oil and camphor as it dries the lips though and can be counter productive as a result.

Be selective but experimental with your lip balms. Sometimes it takes some time searching around to find the right lip balm for your needs.
