In the Battle of the Lip Balms, I Declare a Winner

Like many of you, I'm obsessed with lip balms. I mean, really, who wants "chappy lips" as we call them in my house? I can't do anything without something on my lips, and the last thing I do before going to sleep is to put something on my lips to keep them moisturized and heathy through the night, since I know my daytime lip is going to involve color, rather than nutrition.

Enter Lisa Hoffman Spa Facial Lip Moisturizer. I received this to try while I was in New York recently, and when I couldn't find my usual Rosebud salve, I decided to try this one out. At first, I thought it was a little weird. First of all, it's a pretty large bottle, nothing like your usual lip balm. Then, I pumped some out, and it was a clear gel. I thought for sure this was going to be a big bust, because, really? A clear gel? How moisturizing could that be? I was wrong. It doesn't take much - just a tiny bit smoothed on your lips feels absolutely amazing. It's nice and thick, just like I like my balms to be, and it lasts a long time.

I'll be keeping this on my nightstand for the winter - it's going to ward off dry, cracked, and uncomfortably dry lips. Grab it at for $24.95/.47 oz.
