Winter equals cracked lips, and I’m always on the hunt for the next best thing in the lip care area. My current favorites are the good old Carmex – a little tickling at the start, fresh, and 100% guaranteed soft lips in a day, Chanel lip balm – very light and hydrating, and a new one I’ve started using today (!) is the Glossier dot balm…

What is your secret weapon against cracked lips? Any product recommendations? Below a few more I’ve used over the years, and loved.

    Carmex I dislike, because it’s addicting and never seems like enough. My favourite is Burt’s Bees.


      Might be true what you say about Carmex, but the sensation is so nice when you put it on! Xx

  • I use EOS balm and I love it because of its round shape… I never lose it! Glossier is really great too — at first i thought it was all just social media hype until i was gifted a couple of their products… Glossier is ACTUALLY amazing!!!
    p.s. can we pause and talk about that coat for a second??? #love

      Thanks for the tips!! Can’t wait to see the results of the Glossier one :))) Xx

  • Catarina Neves

    I always use Nivea Creme, is the best!


      You might be right. One of the best! Xx

  • The bite Agave Lip mask is amazing!


      Thanks for the tip! Xx

  • You look fab in the photos dear!

    Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream, the original one that smells a bit ‘funny’ ;-), in a tube. And recently I discovered a true Dutch solution, Klovex, which is from the Kruidvat brand..and under 3 euros ;-).


      I used to use EA Eight Hour Cream, and I loved the smell – it reminded me of Earl Gray tea LOL – but I didn’t find it help very much.. I might have to try again! And Klovex I will have to get when I’m in Holland again ;) Xx

  • That coat is absolutely amazing


  • I use the eos one but I am not really satisfied! I used to use the maybelline one year ago which was really good but felt so oily(?) if I may say.. so I am still in the hunt for the perfect lip balm :(

      Mmm I know the feeling. Maybe this post will help you too!! Xx

      • yes! the glossier sounds great. thanks Xx

  • Natali

    This coat is incredible!! Carmex, Labello, I also love Eos and my 7 years old daughter loves it too ( mint one is her fave ). :)

  • Valerie

    Le Mer lip balm is THE best. Super hydrating, not goopy, and has a great light minty scent.

  • Chapped lips are awful in Winter. One of the worst things about the cold season.

    Would love it if you ladies would check out my swimwear brand, I designed the bikinis for girls who have real bodies and also it is American made swimwear! I strive to make a well fitting suit that flatters a size 2 or a size 10/12. I would love feedback on the designs also if anyone wants to drop me a line. Thanks!


  • Chantal En Charlize

    Coco- oil! Handy voor kooking, face, lips, hair !

  • I use Elizabeth Arden 8 hour skin protectant in the tube (not the lip balm). A slick of this on at night before bed means no chapped lips EVER! I’m so in love with the green coat in your shot Charlotte.

    Hugs Adele xoxo

    Aquaphor is my go to hydrating solution, for everything! :) Love the image with this post, so funny but suitable :D

  • Okay, I was so hesitant on the Glossier one and even after I bought it, I never really used it but after like 4 months of using it, I ended up really liking it. It’s so thick and really moisturizes, especially in this cold weather when my lips feel cracked like every day!

    (Also, that green coat…omg so beautiful)

      I am agreeing with you!! Xx

  • mm melmac

    I swear by jack black. Simple ingredients with spf and works like a dream.


      Cool, I will look it up! Xx

  • Sybille

    Don’t use lipcare with a mineral oil base. It might cause cancer…


      Gosh.. thanks for the tip.. Though nowadays I feel like almost everything causes cancer.. at some point..
