There are lots of things to love about winter, but the harsh weather and effect it has on your skin certainly isn’t one of them! Since our lips are always exposed, they often get the worst of it. There is probably nothing worse than having dry, chapped lips… except maybe wasting money on expensive lip balms that do nothing to actually keep them moisturized! Try out a few of our favorite affordable lip balms to keep those lips feeling soft and smooth all winter long.
