Lips are often the most forgotten-about part of the skincare routine, but we will be the first to tell you that’s a huge mistake. A step that makes you feel your best and can enhance your daily look, lip balm comes in all kinds of forms. Whether it be the squeeze tube, the roll-up format, or an intensive lip mask, lip care can be tailored for anyone. Here are some of our favs!
First and foremost, the best ingredients to look for in lip care are petroleum jelly, honey, and beeswax, as they’re all home to important features like vitamins. Petroleum jelly also creates a barrier for your lips sealing in moisture. Similarly, honey is a humectant, so it attracts moisture to your lips. And, lastly, beeswax will help to seal moisture as well. With that being said, we’ve got you covered.
To start us off, let us introduce you to the OY-L Manuka Honey Lip Gloss. Don’t be fooled by the name, this gloss is packed with a lip care powerhouse. Manuka honey is a special variant of honey that has antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties and features plenty of antioxidants. The ingredient is native to New Zealand and is a staple for this local company. The gloss comes in a couple of amazing scents and leaves the lips looking shiny while also staying hydrated.
Next up is our tried and true Ilia Lip Wrap Overnight Treatment. One of our favorite lip masks, the Ilia Lip Wrap Overnight Treatment features ingredients like Shea Butter and beeswax to leave lips smooth. It’s a favorite of ours and is a great option whenever you’re feeling like you want something a little more intensive.
Another favorite of ours that includes a little color is the Kari Gran Lip Whip. This sheer and buildable color also features beeswax and oils to hydrate the lips and provide daily color and shine. The formula isn’t sticky and provides hydration while giving a no makeup makeup look. It’s one of our absolute must-haves.
While people can forget to take care of their lips, we will always remind you that lip care can still look good. We hope you try out some of our favs and browse the shelves of SLFMKR. And as always, we’re always here to help.
