What’s In A Lip Balm

Source: totalbeauty
Many of us lather on lip balm without a second thought. It’s just part of our everyday routine to keep our lips moisturized and smooth. Unfortunately, many lip balm formulas contain ingredients that dry lips out further, as opposed to hydrating them! A team of researchers at Reviews.com realized this harsh reality during their their search for the best lip balms.

After scouring online reviews and recommendations, they compiled a list of 177 lip balm formulas that received top marks from the beauty community. Researchers then dove deeper into their ingredient lists, eliminating those containing:
  •     Camphor, phenol, & menthol (which further irritate chapped lips)
  •     Common allergens (like fragrance, dyes, beeswax, & lanolin)
With their final contenders, they sought out the lip balms that did the most moisturizing with the fewest ingredients.

Their full guide includes an overall recommendation (Badger Classic Lip Balm Unscented), as well as top picks for a more luxurious balm (John Masters Organics Lip Calm) and a SPF-infused formula if your needing sun protection (Vanicream Lip Protectant).
