Winter Essentials: Best Lip Balms for Men

Lip care is an often overlooked element of men’s skincare routines. But with cooler weather on the approach, the combination of chilly winds and drying central heating, we will see the return of dry and chapped lips once again.

In order to protect yourself against this, it’s important to shop around and find the best lip balm for you. I’ve selected a few of my favourites to help you along.

Aesop Protective Lip Balm SPF30

Any keen runners will be well suited to this one. With the added benefits of SPF and Aesop’s hydrating balm, this stick will keep your lips protected from weather exposure no matter the forecast.

Bulldog Sensitive Lip Balm

Feeling the sting? You’re not alone. Bulldog have specially formulated this balm for those who are extra sensitive to the harsh winter climate. This flavour-free, vegan stick blends natural waxes and cocoa butter to keep reactions far away.

Kiehl’s Buttermask For Lips Overnight Lip Treatment

If you like something a little more luxurious, this overnight lip treatment from Kiehl’s will tick all of the boxes. The rich formula contains coconut oil and wild mango butter to keep your lips super soft.

Malin & Goetz Lip Moisturiser

If you prefer a gel texture to a waxy one, reach for this. Fragrance and flavour free, this lip balm is no nonsense and guaranteed to provide lasting hydration.
