Hands up who else is a lip balm addict? I know that I am! I need at least one on my person at any given time, and definitely at least four in every handbag. I’m also trying to cut down on synthetics and ‘bad’ ingredients like petrolatums, parabens or phthalates. Especially in lip balms, as I figured you end up eating a lot of the balms. So, I’ve been trying some of The Best Natural Lip Balms and I have some new favourites.
Tropic Lip Fudge
Imagine a lip balm that smells like murray mints… that delicious buttery minty/toffee scent. Well, I’ve found it. The Lip Fudges smell amazing, and are such a treat to use each and every time. The texture is really creamy and hydrating; non-greasy and non-sticky. Good under lipstick or on its own. Ingredients include sea fern and omegas 6/9 to plump the lips without any strong tingling. There’s ‘wheat cerasomes’ which softens and then mango wax to repair and protect.
The Lip Fudges come in three different colours – clear, pink guava and rosewood. The tinted ones really don’t pack a lot of pigment, so it’s much more of a hint (a whisper if you will). My favourite is rosewood for the perfect everyday flush that looks super natural but a little bit pouty.
Skin & Tonic Lip Balm
Why have one when you can have four… of the cutest natural lip balms around. Yup, cute packaging from one of my favourite natural brands (more on them and the best natural face oils here). These are the best texture for those who aren’t a fan of anything too sticky on the lips; one of the lightest balms around. Small enough to fit into teeny tiny clutch bags and great for gifting to husbands who keep stealing them out of your bag…
There’s four flavours – rose / naked / peppermint / lemon.
Surely everyone has tried this cult brand by now? It remains one of the best, in my opinion, for the lip balm is hard to beat. The brand was founded by a beekeeper who believed that natural products are the best for skin. They have a really extensive range of lip balms that mostly come packaged in the handy chapstick packaging which makes reapplying them on the go a breeze. They’re also nicely tingly (but not stingy) thanks to peppermint oil!
Balmkind Lip Balm
If you’re looking for a lip balm with a little bit more of a skincare twist, then the Balmkind alpine rose and lysine balm is a pretty fabulous pick. The texture is heavier than the others mentioned, and it feels nourishing and very much like a treatment. This one would be especially good for those suffering from dry or irritated lips; instantly it soothes and leaves lips feeling cared for.
