Organic Lip Balm: 6 under $6

April 4, 2014

Having chapped lips is the worst. It’s painful and slightly unsightly, not to mention the fact that it’s usually an indicator of a deeper problem.

While many people associate chapped lips with the blustery months of winter or the scorching heat of summer, there are a variety of reasons—allergies, thyroid complications, dehydration, and stress among them—that can cause chapped lips year-round. Luckily, we can easily hydrate and repair our lips with lip balm!

Although there are tons of lip balms on the market, not allare created equal. Many brands contain chemicals, pesticides, and other additives, making it imperative to always buy organic. When reading the label, you should scan for natural ingredients such as beeswax, cocoa butter, jojoba oil, shea butter and aloe vera, and always avoid artificial colors and flavors.

Check out my top 6 organic lip palm picks - all under $6!

EcoLips Mongo Kiss: $2.49

This certified organic balm comes in four flavors, all which are infused with mongogo oil, a nutrient-rich oil sourced from a rural village in Zambia, Africa. Slightly larger than the average lip balm tube, mongo kiss is a nice alternative to smaller balms which are easy to misplace and may not last as long. Also, the tube and cap are comprised of 40% recycled materials.

Alba Botanica Lip Balm: $2.99

Let’s get tropical with Alba Botanica’s line of fruity lip balms! Alba offers a wide variety of products that offer your lips moisture and nutrients, while protecting them from the sun’s strong rays. This is a great choice for beach days and fun in the sun!

Dr. Bronner’s Magic Lip Balm: $2.99

Some of my favorite bath and beauty products are Dr. Bronner’s, and their lip balm is no exception! Available in four flavors—Orange Ginger, Peppermint, Lemon Lime, and Naked—this product has a creamy consistency and does an amazing job of keeping your lips hydrated and smooth.

EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm: $3.29

Your lips are in for a treat with any of EOS’ eight smooth sphere lip balms. The perfect balance of flavor and moisture, these balms are a popular choice and can be found in most supermarkets and drug stores. Plus, the pod shape is pretty fun!

S.W. Basics Lip Balm: $4

This Brooklyn-based company creates lip balms that hydrate without leaving any leftover residue on your lips. Available in four awesome flavors, none of their balms have more than four ingredients. S.W. offers vegan lip balms as well!

Badger Cocoa Butter Lip Balm: $4.99

Badger describes this product as “a little magic for your lips” and they are spot on! This creamy balm comes in seven amazing and natural flavors. Plus, you can even use it for cracked cuticles.
