Winter means ice skating dates, peppermint mochas and snuggly nights in, but it also means chapped lips. There's nothing worse than those dry, sore lips that come with the onset of cold weather! To battle the winter blues, we asked five collegiettes about their favorite tried-and-true lip balms to keep their lips soft and supple all through the winter months.
Gabby, a senior at Bridgewater State University: Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Hibiscus ($6.99 at ULTA)
"It's the perfect solution to everyday moisturizing needs, while adding just a hint of color to pull together a look!"
Aja, a sophomore at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo: LUSH's Lip Tint in It Started With a Kiss ($9.25 at LUSH)
"I carry it with me at all times. Not only is it super moisturizing, but the color is really pretty and feminine... and the name is so cute!"
Amy, a junior at Emerson College: Hurraw! Lip Balm ($3.80 at American Apparel)
"They stock them at American Apparel and have unique scents like Chai Spice and, my favorite, Grapefruit! They have very minor tints, but do an amazing job of moisturizing in the winter."
Hannah, a junior at Stanford University: EOS Lip Balm ($3.99 at CVS)
"EOS is a staple because it works so well!"
Maddy, a junior at New York University: NIVEA Lip Care in A Kiss Of Olive & Lemon ($2.99 at ULTA)
"I really like the taste and it goes on lightly and doesn't dry cakey."
