Lip balms are a necessity; we’re talking just as essential as a roll of loo paper or a functioning toothbrush.
In fact, nothing makes us hyperventilate more than having dry lips – nothing. Chapped lips should be a punishable offence as far as we’re concerned.
So please, we scratch your back (with these balm recs), and you scratch ours – and by scratch ours we do mean keep those plush face pillows of yours adequately moisturised 24/7.
Here are six of the best lip hydrating players in the game that’ll help you do just that.
