Now that it's cold, I find I'm constantly reaching towards my lip balms to keep my lips hydrated. Despite having a few tried and true basics, I'm always on the hunt for a great new balm or moisturizing gloss. Here are my current favourites for keeping my lips hydrated and luscious: 

1. VASELINE - this is the original lip balm and you can really never go wrong when your lips need extreme moisture.
2. DIOR CRÉME DE ROSE SMOOTHING PLUMPING LIP BALM - MY NEWEST FIND: I've heard a lot of great things about this product but only tried it for the first time a few days ago. Needless to say, I was instantly addicted. It makes your lips incredibly soft and smells heavenly.
3. ROSEBUD SALVE IN A TUBE - this is very similar in texture to Vaseline but has a much nicer smell. I like the Strawberry scent best but all of the Rosebud Salves are great.
4. KIEHL'S LIP BALM #1 MANGO - this has been my go-to balm for years. I have one in the car, in my purse, at the office and a few of them in my bedside table at all times. I always have one at my fingertips for when my lips need instant moisture.
5. CLARINS INSTANT LIGHT NATURAL LIP PERFECTOR - I've written about this a number of times but it's still a favourite. It gives just a hint of colour, feels great on your lips and is a fantastic balm/gloss combo.
6. DIOR ADDICT LIP POLISH - this gives a touch of colour and makes your lips super glossy. 

What are your favourite products for keeping your lips hydrated and luscious?


  1. These are all great Lauren! I also love the Fresh sugar lip treatment, it's so silky and it has SPF.

    1. I really like the Fresh sugar lip treatment too! I got a set for my bday from Sephora and use it as a base before I put on my lipstick.

  2. Love this post! I'm looking fwd to picking up the Dior lip balm :)
