This Lip Balm Was Voted the ‘World’s Best’ on Reddit, and I Agree featured image

I have a gross confession to make: I bite my lips. It was an unfortunate habit I picked up in my teens, and at this point I’m pretty sure it’s the reason why my lips are constantly dry and chapped. What I know for sure is that I’ve spent a lifetime seeking out treatment to help heal, and possibly correct, this problem. If you look in any coat pocket or purse I own, you’ll find an assortment of lip balms and lip masks.

However, none of them really stood up to the challenge of healing and soothing my very flaky lips. It seemed like I was destined to live life with a parched pucker. That is, until I did a deep-dive online and discovered Lanolips 101 Ointment Multi-Balm Coconutter ($13.50).

What It Is

This miracle balm has racked up over 50 awards for its intense healing and hydrating benefits. It penetrates and seals in moisture on even the driest of lips (including those that occur as a side effect of Accutane). And if that weren’t enough, this multitasking balm can be used anywhere you have dry, chapped skin, like cuticles, elbows and heels. It’s also safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

The ointment comes in a variety of flavors and tints, but my current favorite is Coconutter. This particular formula is infused with vitamin E and coconut oil, and reminds me of warm summer days. My favorite thing about the lip balm, aside from the healing and hydrating benefits, is that it feels great. It is not sticky or greasy at all, and it even adds high-shine over lipstick. Whether I’m using it on my lips or my nail beds, my skin just drinks this up. In fact, I’ve already purchased this in a number of other flavors. I am slowly replacing my pocket and purse balms with these little tubes of magic.

Key Ingredients

The secret to this balm’s success is that it’s made with ultra pure-grade Aussie lanolin. Lanolin is an oil that is found in sheep’s wool, but it mimics the lipids in human skin. This makes it an extremely good moisturizer. It can hold up to 400 percent of its weight in moisture and is a 100-percent natural alternative to petroleum-based balms. Lanolips’ lanolin is sourced from wool washing after shearing, so it’s cruelty-free and Leaping Bunny–certified.
