It doesn’t matter if you’re the biggest beauty lover out there or the lover of simplcity or indeed the queen of beauty minimalists—we’re willing to bet good money that you own and regularly use, a lip balm or salve. Agreed, you could consider it a beauty product (any lip color is simply not going to look good applied on chapped lips), but we think it really does count as a personal care necessity. Sore lips are just no fun.

Your lips are unlike any other skin on your body. For starters, they don’t produce the natural oils that keep the rest of your skin supple. Hydrating, flavoured, purse-friendly — we’ve got them all on this list. These are the best lip balms of 2021
