With winter coming soon, my husband has been searching for the best lip balm for men. He hates chapped lips. I hate them too. Here are his favorites.
Best Lip Balm for Men (his picks)
#1 Aquaphor Lip Repair
This isn’t just the best lip balm for men. I’ve used it when my lips were raw, chapped, and crying for attention. This lip repair is ah-mazing. It helped my lips heal fast. I haven’t had chapped lips since.
It contains castor oil, glycerin, shea butter, beeswax, and tocopherol. And it’s paraben-free, preservative-free and fragrance-free. We like that.
It comes in a gel form and is not thick like Vaseline. But it does stay on your lips for about an hour. So you don’t need to apply it every five minutes.
The lip repair does not offer sun protection, but Aquaphor offers another balm that provides SPF 35 protection. Still, I like this one more because of how healing and repairing it is. It is THE best lip balm for winter. No joke!
#2 Hurraw! Moon Lip Balm
If you don’t want to use lip balm during the day, try the Hurraw! moon lip balm. It’s a night treatment for your lips that is thick, creamy, and super moisturizing.
Hurraw! is a vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free certified company. It’s also an organic, non-GMO, Made in the USA company that doesn’t use beeswax or any animal products.
We are big, big fans of cruelty-free products and brands.
The moon balm is actually loaded with avocado, coconut, safflower, castor, olive, meadowfoam, argan, and rosehip oils. Yes all those oils plus cocoa butter. And it has vanilla, balsam and blue chamomile.
Hurraw! soothes your lips while its smell sends you to sleep. I agree. I smells lovely.
If you’re looking for a day time balm, try their sun balm; it’s SPF 15.
#3 Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm
This is the best lip balm for men that actually offers some sun protection. It’s SPF 25.
It’s pretty good with petrolatum, beeswax, shea butter, and avocado oil. It also has antioxidants like green tea extract, mint, Vitamin E and more. Oh, it’s also paraben-free and sulfate-free.
While Jack Black is a predominantly manly brand, guys, you can share with your female partners. Even Jack Black recommends it while answering this question in their FAQ section:
Q: My wife has invested a small fortune in skin care products. Can we—or better yet, should we—share? Our retirement may be resting on your answer.
A: … That depends. First, consider what’s different about a guy’s skin. It’s thicker than a woman’s and in most cases, produces more oil. But even more importantly, a man’s skin care needs revolve around a daily shaving regimen, which has its own unique set of requirements…
We’ll end this discussion with a few more recommendations, continuing in the spirit of what’s yours is hers. Other Jack Black products we think she’ll like include our Eye Balm Age Minimizing Gel, Industrial Strength Hand Healer, Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25 and Sleek Finish Texture Cream.
Ha! Guys, get two!
#4 Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm with Vitamin E and Peppermint Oil
Ahhh the classic!
Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm is a popular one among men and women. It has beeswax, coconut, sunflower, soybean and canola oil. Plus peppermint and rosemary oils too.
With all that, it makes your lips feel so soft, smooth and hydrated. And that hit of peppermint oil… Oooo expect minty fresh, moisturized, happy lips.
But, if you are sensitive to beeswax or don’t want to use animal products, try the next lip balm instead.
#5 Eco Lips Bee Free Vegan Lip Balm (Sweet Mint)
This specific lip balm is moisturizing and perfect if you are sensitive to beeswax. Its base has sunflower oil, coconut oil, candelilla wax and cocoa butter. And there are some mint oils and Vitamin E in it too.
The only concern with this lip balm is it does not offer any sun protection.
