Happy Friday everyone! Boy am I glad it’s the weekend, and not just because I get to sleep in, but because it’s finally not going to be ridiculously cold anymore. Seriously, the insane below freezing temperature was driving me nuts, and blasting all that heat was not good for my skin, hair, or lips. Thankfully these 4 products keep my lips from drying out like an old prune.
Dior Addict Lip Glow – $32
Definitely not the cheapest product, but it looks beautiful and it works well. This has SPF, gives my lips the perfect touch of pink, and keeps it super moisturized throughout the day. I find that I don’t have to reapply this lip balm as often as I would other ones, and even with frequent usage, I still have quite a bit of product left. Did I say I was in love with the packaging? Seriously thinking about adding my own DIY lip balm in the tube once I’m done with the product!
Not a lot of products make it to my HG list, but this one did! I find most non-tube lip balms difficult to apply at first because they’re tough as a rock, and I have to rub my finger around for a good 30 seconds before I can get any product. This one applied like a dream – soft as butter and not sticky at all. They also made my lips soft as butter, which is incredible in the winter time.
Epic Blend Lip Balm - $3.49
I raved about this product in my January BeautyBox 5 review, and this has become a staple at my office. No waxy film, just yummy coconut oil goodness. Much like the Dior Creme de Rose, this also melts on my lips as soon as I apply it, and my lips feel instantly hydrated. Unfortunately it lacks the long term moisturizing powers of the Dior Lip Glow, but for $3.49, this is a total steal.

I got this from my January Glam Bag, and I almost overlooked it due to its somewhat boring packaging (yes I know I shouldn’t judge a product by its packaging, but first impressions do matter!). I’m also not a fan of the squeeze tube, as I find it harder to control the amount and it just gets really messy. No spillage issues with this one though, and I love the texture of this on my lips. It absorbs very quickly, and my lips are instantly softened and hydrated.
Yes the cold weather is a b**** on the lips, but with the right products, they can stay soft and crack-free, even when it’s -5 degrees with a 30 mph windshield. What are your favorite lip products for the winter season?
