We moved our clocks forward. It’s getting colder. The holidays are on the horizon. This can only mean one thing: winter is coming!
The cold and dry weather is not something to be ignored. Not only can it wreak havoc on your skin, your lips can be affected as well.
In the past I wrote an article entitled “Lip Protection,” about what lip balms to purchase based on region and climate. Now I am taking it a step further and personally tested a slew of these to help weed out the better ones on the market. Besides, it’s cold and dry outside, and who wants to do research if their lips are already chapped?
No one. That’s right. You’re welcome! Here are my top 5 picks for men’s lip balm:
Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Lip Moisturizer, SPF 15 – Yeah, so… July is the hottest month in Oslo, Norway with an average temperature of 18°C (64°F) and the coldest is January at -3°C (27°F). And, that pretty much sums it up!
Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm w/SPF 25 – Has a nice minty taste and delivers the protection needed for these cold winter months. Moisturizes well and has an SPF of 25, perfect for all you skiers out there!
Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm Tube – Burt’s Bee’s has been around for ages keeping our body looking and feeling good. So how can you pass up this original minty beeswax lip balm? You can’t!
Kiehl’s Facial Fuel No Shine Moisturizing Lip Balm – great texture, fast acting, matted (no-shine) and created by a well respected brand!
Evolution Man Lip Balm w/SPF 15 – cover’s, protects, smells good and it has SPF15.
