Unless you know something we don't know, then you've also experienced the agony of dry, chapped lips. The below freezing, windy conditions can really work a number on our lips during the winter months. Your lips are the most fragile skin on your body, so make sure to keep them moisturized and kissable with some of our favorite balms and moisturizers, below.
1. Vaseline Lip Therapy Petroleum Jelly
If you're looking to get back to basics, then this is the lip moisturizer for you. There are no fancy oils or antioxidants here -- just good old petroleum jelly. You are sure to be protected from the elements, and see long-lasting moisture all day. (Vaseline Lip Therapy Petroleum Jelly, $3, at drugstore.com)

This is the most popular of all the Burt's Bees products! The balm contains coconut and sunflower oil that helps nourish, condition, and seal in hydration. The formula also contains peppermint oil, which allows you to feel your lips tingle as it works in moisture. You can also pick up the tinted lip balm for a touch of color.
