There’s no way to sugar coat it—dry and chapped lips are a pain in the butt! We despise them, don’t we? Unfortunately, it’s something I deal with a lot. This means I’m always on the look out for anything to moisturize, hydrate, and soothe my poor lips. Sure lip balms are cool, but I’m all about lip butters right now.
Intended to be more moisturizing than lip balms, lip butters usually contain more oil and have a softer, but thicker consistency. Of course, it all depends on the brand. The whole idea behind it is to achieve soft and smooth lips.
Now, when it comes to your beauty regime, lip butter can be worn on a nude lip or under your existing lip color. Or you can do what I do and apply it before bed—waking up with a softer pout. And yes they come in different shades and flavors. They’re are even a few cruelty-free and vegan lip butters out there. It’s up to you to find the perfect one.
Here are 10 lip butters to battle dry and chapped lips.
