How to Choose the Right Lip Balm for Your Lips

1 min read

Unlike other areas of your face, your lips don’t have oil glands¹, which means if they don’t get the proper TLC, they’ll become dry, cracked and sore. The solution? A good lip balm. Take a peek at (or shall we say, pucker up with) these options…

  1.  If your lips are: Dry and cracked

Maybe it’s wintertime and the effect of Mother Nature and the elements have taken a toll on your lips. Or maybe it’s summertime and the activities outside (and potential lack of proper hydration) are preventing your lips from getting the water they need. Either way, the dryness, flaking and cracks your lips are experiencing have become too much bear. Looking for a lip balm for dry lips? Try some of our favorite Vaseline® Lip Therapy® recommendations below.

The Vaseline® Lip Therapy® Original Tin is clinically proven to help heal dry lips. It’s also not sticky or greasy, which means it goes on super easy. Bonus: Vaseline® Lip Therapy® Rosy Lips Tin also act as a tinted lip balm, so you can skip the lip gloss if you want. You can have your choice of Rosy, Aloe or Cocoa Butter, all these formulas help heal, moisturize and soften.


Vaseline® Lip Therapy® can soothe dry skin, sealing up cracks and giving you instant relief from discomfort. They’re made with Vaseline® Jelly and are perfect for on-the-go—car, purse, desk, you name it.

  1.  If your lips are: Chapped

Yes, the environment has a lot to do with dryness of your lip skin, but frequent licking can, too. Your saliva actually deprives your skin of moisture! Coupled with the fact that the skin on your lips is actually thinner than other parts of the body, you’ll want a product that will help repair dry lips, not just coat your lips.

Vaseline® Advanced Healing Tube contains an effective formula that quickly softens and soothes lips by locking in moisture and helping them to heal. It’s great for everyday moisture, plus the tube makes easy application possible.
