There are three very important (and practical) beauty lessons I learned at an early age. Never walk out the door without brushing your teeth. Keep a mini deodorant in your purse. And lastly: don’t get caught out here with dry lips. Ashy elbows and knees can be easily hidden, but chapped lips can’t be disguised by a long sleeve shirt or pair of jeans.

So, I’ve trained myself to keep lip balms almost everywhere I go; at my work desk, in the gym locker, near the coffee table, on my nightstand…you get it. My lips are precious cargo that get VIP treatment 24/7 and because of my obsessive compulsive habit, I’ve morphed into both a lip balm hoarder and expert. Sure, I keep some way longer than I should, but now, I can save you the time of searching for one. Ahead, I’ve gathered what I consider the 10 best lip treatments out there; from a tinted newbie to a drugstore favorite.
