The best lip balms for dry lips this winter 2023
The Original 101 Ointment Superbalm, $18.95, Lanolips
This multi-award winning ointment is a cult product for a reason. It holds up to 400 per cent of its weight in moisture meaning its a must for dry and dehydrated lips. Lanolin, which is the products super-ingredient, "is ‘semi-occlusive’, which means it is a brilliant breathe-able barrier – working to let your lips ‘self hydrate’ from within (your body is pretty magical if you give it the tools to let it fix itself)", says Kirsten.

This little tube of magic is your ticket to soft, smooth, and kissable lips. It's like a spa day for your pout - it moisturises, soothes, and rejuvenates your lips, leaving them looking and feeling their best. Plus, there are no fragrances to deal with, so you can enjoy all the benefits without any irritation.
