Okay, so honestly, I can totally deal with pimples, dark circles, dry skin, and, like, the majority of other annoying beauty things people deal with on a regular basis. I just can’t deal with chapped lips. They feel bad, they’re annoying, and they make any lipstick or lip color you put on them look messy. Ugh, no freaking thank you. So to save everyone from having to deal with the suckiness of flaky, chapped lips ever again, I’ve rounded up the 17 best lip balms, below. From ultra-hydrating overnight options, to lightweight tinted options for day, there’s an option for everyone.

Best Rose-Scented Lip Balm
KNC Beauty Supa Balm in OG Rose
IDK what I love more, this lip balm’s pretty rose scent or it’s ability to make my lips feel baby soft. The vegan, cruelty-free formula uses moringa, cotton, and and kukui oils to plump lips and deeply moisturize them almost instantly.
Best Drugstore Lip Balm
Eos Super Soft Shea Lip Balm in Honey Apple
The Eos egg is a total drugstore classic, and for good reason: It really, truly works. This one is made with sustainably-sourced shea butter and nourishing plant oils to keep lips hydrated for up to 24 hours. P.S. the yummy honey apple flavor smells just like freshly-sliced apples.
Best Jelly Lip Balm
Tatcha The Kissu Lip Mask
I’m obsessed with this lip balm’s jelly texture. It’s lightweight (aka it soaks in fast and isn’t the slightly bit sticky), but is still super nourishing and soothing, thanks to squalane, camellia oil, Japanese peach extract, and rose extracts. Once you smooth it on, your lips will feel moisturized, full and plump, and just the right amount of shiny.
Best Shimmery Lip Balm
Pat McGrath Labs Lip Fetish Noir Lip Balm in Astral Blue Star
Think of this shimmery lip balm as a highlighter for your lips—a few swipes will literally make them glow. It’s made with moisturizing ingredients to turn chapped lips soft and smooth, plus tiny glitter particles to reflect light and leave your lips looking luminous.
Best Lip Balm for Super Dry Lips
Dehiya Beauty The Lip Balm
Ideal for anyone with ultra-dry or chapped lips, this plant-based lip balm is doesn’t mess around when it comes to hydration. Inside the tube: a blend of omega and fatty-acid rich macadamia nut oil, nourishing kokum, and hydrating, antioxidant-rich cupuaçu.
Best Lip Balm with SPF
Supergoop Play Lip Balm SPF 30 with Acai
Best Inexpensive Lip Balm
Aquaphor Lip Repair Stick
No joke, I have, like, 10 of these cheapie Aquaphor lip balms (you get 2 for just $7 bucks) within reach at all times—they’re that damn good. I keep one in my car, one in my bag, one at my desk, one in my nightstand, and five more on deck in my medicine cabinet.
Best Lightweight Lip Balm
Lano Holographic Lip Water
If you’re not into sticky, tacky lip balms (hi, same), then pls allow me to introduce you to this lightweight one from Lano. It has a serum-y, water-like texture that soaks into your lips in seconds, and the formula is loaded with hydrating hyaluronic acid and glycerin to keep lips moisturized.
Best Healing Lip Balm
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Intensive Lip Balm
This is the ideal lip balm for winter when your lips are in need of serious TLC. The thick, buttery texture is full of soothing and moisturizing ingredients like colloidal oatmeal, beeswax, and honey to turn flaky, chapped lips silky smooth.
Best Multipurpose Lip Balm
Doctor Rogers Restore Healing Balm
This clean multipurpose balm does a million different things—heals cuts and scrapes, softens cuticles, soothes irritation, etc. But my favorite way to use it? As a lip balm. The combo of castor oil and glycerin is insanely moisturizing but not at all greasy.
Best Overnight Lip Balm
Bite Beauty Agave+ Nighttime Lip Therapy
If you’re prone to dry, cracked lips, this overnight lip balm from Bite Beauty is about to be the new MVP of your p.m. routine. It contains repairing antioxidants and time-released moisturizers that smooth and plump your lips throughout the night.
Best Tinted Lip Balm
Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Lip Balm
Best Flavored Lip Balm
Fresh Sugar Lip Caramel Hydrating Balm
I’m straight-up obsessed with this caramel lip balm. The flavor is sweet, sugary, and delicious (legit like dessert), and the vitamin E–infused formula makes my lips feel ridiculously smooth for hours.
Best Coconut Lip Balm
Kopari Beauty Coconut Lip Glossy
One of the best all-natural ingredients for soothing chapped lips? Coconut oil (it’s the hero ingredient in this lip balm from Kopari). It’s ideal for treating dry, flaky lips, thanks to its moisturizing and nourishing properties.
Best Glossy Lip Balm
Laneige Lip Glowy Balm
Best All-Natural Lip Balm
Follain Lip Balm
If you use only one all-natural beauty product in your routine, let it be lip balm (like this one from Follain) that’s made with organic, plant-based ingredients. You use it near your mouth multiple times a day, which means the ingredients are likely making their way into your system.
