Promising review: “The true test of a good lip product is if it can withstand the winter. I live in the Midwest and we had a particularly rough winter this year, very cold. However, as long as I was wearing this product, my lips were always protected and comfortable. I have six of these floating around my house/purse/work backpack. And I don’t ever see myself using another lip product.” —Cara

Promising review: "This is by far my favorite Burt's Bees lip balm. It's difficult to find in a retail store if at all, and the combined effects of the menthol and eucalyptus provide a 100% natural medicated rejuvenation for damaged lips and/or barrier from harsh, cold, or dry and arid environments. You can tell it's working from the mild tingle and refreshing 'cool' feeling." —Jason Burgess

Pssst, passion fruit is my favorite one of all!
Promising review: “I must have ordered 12 tubes of this over the past few months as I need a tube every few feet. It smells and tastes great. It's an ointment that is supposed to help heal skin (like Neosporin with natural efficacy). I find it is a miracle for my severe eczema on my hands. I also slather it liberally on my lips and under my eyes for intense, reparative hydration in the dry Colorado climate.” —Nebula2000

Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) are acids proven to gently exfoliate and provide some moisture and softness back into the skin.
Promising review: “I have suffered from severely chapped lips for a long time. I have 10+ chapsticks that I put through a rotation to try to keep my lips hydrated. I tried this product and loved it immediately. I just scoop a tiny amount onto the spatula provided and spread it on my lips just prior to bed. In the morning, I wake up with soft hydrated lips that last all day. I will definitely re-order when needed, but that may be a while because a little goes a long way with this product.” —brianna

Lanolin is a secretion from wool-bearing animals, known for its ability to protect the skin from harsh climates to lock in moisture while beautifying the skin.
Promising review: “This here is 100% medical grade lanolin and it is worth the price. 100% lanolin products are hard to find and a medical grade lanolin is practically impossible. If you want to break the chapstick addiction cycle you're stuck in and actually fix your chapped lips, get this. You won't regret it.” —HexWench

Promising review: “OMG I STAN THIS PRODUCT! The packaging is so cute and they all smell amazing. They all make my lips feel so soft and smooth and it lasts for hours. EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE THIS!" —Squigglez
Promising review: “It really works! I have had dry lips most of my life and I get married in two months; when I went to do my trial makeup, my lipstick looked horrible because of my dry lips. So I started using this mask and OMG my lips look so good! Even my soon to be husband kissed me and said my lips felt so soft and smooth 😱😍 My lips will look great for the wedding!” —Carlos
Get it from Amazon for $13.95 (available in four scents).
Promising review: “It's almost as if the moisturizing granules are finer in this product, which makes the balm absorb into your lips instantly. I love the colored lip treatments as well, but this is the serious, get-down-to-business sister of that product; no BS, no flair, just pure moisture, and healing. Really lives up to the name 'advanced therapy.' —savvysweetheart
Get it from Sephora for $26 (available in two colors).
Promising review: “Boy, this really works! My son gets terribly dry and split lips. This is because he reflexively scrubs his lips dry after every sip or drink. I was worried that these split corners meant he had a vitamin deficiency until I realized what he was doing. I tried everything to heal his mouth and nothing worked until I used this stuff. It made a difference right away, even the difficult-to-heal mouth corners are almost completely healed after a week!” —whitequeen
Get it from Amazon for $3.97.
Promising review: “I have a bad habit of constantly picking the skin on my lips. It’s ugly and the skin on my lips have grown back hard and tough. My goal this year is to break the habit, and I bought this to help me stop. So far I LOVE it!! I use the scrub with a baby electric toothbrush to help get the dead skin off and then the mask really helps my lips repair and be soft. Honestly, my lips have never been softer and I’m doing good so far for not picking!” —Shelby

Promising review: “I’ve gone through so many brands trying to find the 'ONE.' I don't remember how I found this but decided to try it and love it! I put it on before bed and wake up with moisturized lips. I put it on before heading to the gym and it withstands my mouth breathing heavily and I don’t have to reapply!" —MustLoveDogs
Get it from Amazon for $8.76.
Promising review: “I confess I am a lip licker so I started researching what to do about chronic dry lips. I used the usual lip balms but they feel thick and artificial so I bought this. It goes on very smooth and feels slick on my lips without feeling waxy. After using it just one day I noticed that my lips are much softer and more moist. I'm thrilled because I've been searching for a long time for something that actually works and is made from natural ingredients.” —Carol M

Promising review: “I started using this product recently and WOW! I love coconut oil and use it in a variety of ways. This lip gloss glides on effortlessly and tastes and smells amazing. It feels like you are gliding on a super expensive lip restoration product when in reality its an affordable everyday lip gloss. It helps your lips to feel soft and moisturized while allowing for the prettiest glossy shine!" —Lacey
Get it from Sephora for $12 (available in three shades).
Promising review: “As a self-professed lip balm junkie, I have to say that this is my favorite....ever! It glides on like butter, instantly hydrates my lips and has a very light peppermint scent that is just perfect! More importantly, it is mostly certified organic so all the ingredients used are the best!” —Chlosefina
