Great Lip Balms for Men

Lip Service. Between the harsh winds, rain and rapid weather changes of the current season, your skin–and in particular, the skin on your lips–is probably not in tip-top shape. Frequent lip licking and foul weather can combine for chapped lips.

What you need is not a girly, sweet-smelling lip balm; you need a manly, unflavored, non-shiny lip balm that won’t leave a bad taste in your mouth. We found a few good ones for you.

Clarins Men
Lip Guard SPF 15

Despite the name, this Lip Guard from Clarins Men does more than just guard the lips or keep them free of irritation. Other than creating an invisible layer that protects the surface of the lips from UV rays or any other extreme weather conditions, it also has the ability to repair damage. It works by maintaining the ideal level of moisture, therefore, hydrating and giving back the lips their natural suppleness. Clarins Men Lip Guard also has an oil-free, non-sticky texture and gives the lips a matte, non-glossy finish.


Superbalm Lip Treatment

Every time you think Superbalm Lip Treatment isn’t worth your time, this unisex lip balm from Clinique seems to be determined to prove otherwise. Sure, it may be a bit pricey for something that easily fits in the pocket. But only few other lip balms can honestly say that they really do the job. The outcome is amazingly instant, as major improvements are visible overnight. The heavier texture makes the balm stay longer on the lips.


Facial Fuel No-Shine Moisturizing Lip Balm

Kiehl’s follows the success of its best-selling Lip Balm #1 with No-Shine Moisturizing Lip Balm from its Facial Fuel collection. The latter is aimed mostly at men’s lips, as indicated by its “No-Shine” feature. Not only is it non-glossy, the balm is also easily absorbed and not greasy, even though the ingredients contain natural oils, which include Shea Butter. The natural fat gives No-Shine Moisturizing Lip Balm the ability to soothe, hydrate and moisturize chapped lips. It has a fresh mint scent.


Shea Butter Lip Balm Stick

It’s the combination of shea butter and ingredients such as beeswax, carnauba wax and castor oil that makes Shea Butter Lip Balm Stick from L’Occitane the effective lip balm that it is, repairing and nourishing chapped lips with a much-needed moisturizing formula. Despite the infusion of natural oils for waxes, Shea Butter Lip Balm Stick isn’t greasy at all. In fact, some people may find it too waxy for their liking. Then again, the lip balm does take pride in not being sticky and shiny. Plus, it also makes for a suitable match for over-sensitive lips.
