Top Picks for Chapped Lips

Cold dry days and chilly wind – yes, winter can be a punishment for our poor pout.
Over the past few weeks I have been reaching for the following balms and ointments to sooth dry and chapped lips and to add protection against the seasonal elements.
Lucas Paw Paw Ointment
Paw Paw is wonderful stuff, as well as doing amazing things for our lips; this multi-tasker can also be used as a topical cream for burns, chafing, rashes and many other skin conditions.
Just like paw paw, lanolin (derived from the fat within a sheep’s woolen coat) is recognized for its range of multi uses. The Lanolips range uses 70% medical grade lanolin and leave your lips feeling so soft. Lanolips offer a variety of different colours and flavours in their range my favourite being Lemon Aide.
Maybelline Baby Lips

This popular lip balm is an all in one when it comes to lip protection. Containing an SPF 20, active moisturizing ingredients such as Shea Butter and Centella as well as vitamins for an antioxidant boost, Baby Lips also come in a variety of different flavours (or scents) and I’m a huge fan of Anti-Oxidant Berry.
NP Set Lip Primer
I have been using this as an added moisture boost under my lipsticks and on its own to smooth and moisturize dry lips. It contains Cocoa Butter for moisture and Green Tea Extract for lip protection.
  What have been your seasonal savior this month?


  1. I have tried and love all of these, but haven't tried the NP Set Lip Primer! I really want to now, sounds like it would be great for under lipsticks!

  2. Paw Paw is fantastic but I don't use the lucas brand because it contains petroleum. Personally I would recommend Pure Papaya or Suvana as they have don't contain petroleum ingredients :)

  3. Paw Paw ointment is my absolute favourite. Couldn't live without it!

  4. I love Lanolips Lemon Aide and Jurlique's Love Balm, both keep my lips in perfect condition.

  5. I love paw paw ointment and baby lips. I've never tried lanolips but have always heard great things i might have to give it a shot now!!

    Also love the new layout!

  6. Have you tried our Bee Magic Wand? Great for chapped lips and has plenty of other uses, too!
