My Favorite Lip Treatments

Hello Beautifuls,

When it comes to lip balms or lip treatments, I usually don't really go for cute packaging and fruity scents. Instead, I go for products that really deliver the moisture and conditioning that my lips need. I find that drugstore lip balm are fairly cheap and somewhat does the job but when it comes to skincare, I think it's worth investing a little more on something that really helps your skin. These are my favorite lip treatments.

Pur-Lisse Daily Lip Nourisher ($16)
  • What it does: Kiss and make up with your chapped, cracked lips. Our exclusive petroleum~free nourisher brings smiles to dry pouts, as lavish fruits butters and healing vegetable oils richly hydrate. Lackluster lips become softer, moister and more youthful~looking
  • Contains: Blue lotus, white tea, soy proteins, sea silk, lupine peptides.
  • The formula is thin, moisturizing, conditioning, and non-sticky.
  • The only con is that it does wear out after a couple hours
  • unscented
DermStore Lip Quench (12)
  • What it does: DermStore Lip Quench hydrates, softens and adds a hint of color to your lips with rich, protecting emollients for a dazzling pout. Soybean, olive and sweet almond oils provide nourish and smooth dry, chapped lips while vitamin E neutralizes free radicals. Perfect for wearing alone or over a matte lipstick for high shine lips.
  • This one is advertized as lip plumping but I honestly can't feel or tell the difference. 
  • The formula is thick but moisturizing and conditioning. I like the fact that it does last longer.
  • It has a pleasant sweet berry/fruity scent and also provides a glossy finish.
Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm ($7.50)
  • What it does: contains antioxidants and superior moisturizers to provide lasting treatment benefits. It provides broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection. Shea butter and avocado oil deliver moisture while vitamin E and green tea contribute antioxidant fortification.
  • These actually are sold in 5 different flavors: natural mint, vanilla & lavender, grapefruit & ginger, black tea & blackberry, lemon & chamomile
  • SPF 25
  • The formula is thick and a bit tacky but because of that it provides a longer lasting moisture and conditioning for your lips.
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment ($22.50)
  • What it does: Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 blends reparative oils and waxes with real sugar, a natural humectant, for delectable and dependable moisture. Sweet and tart black currant oil, rich in plumping essential fatty acids, cushions the lips while antioxidant grapeseed polyphenols and vitamins A, C, and E provide protection from wrinkle-causing free radicals. It also provides essential, year-round protection from damaging UV rays. 
  • The formula is non sticky and thin but quite moisturizing. The only problem is that it doesn't last on the lips very long. I find that it works really well when paired with the Sugar Lip Polish. 
  • It has a pleasant citrusy scent.
Fresh Sugar Lip Polish ($22.50)
  • What it does: This unique formula is enriched with real brown sugar crystals to gently buff away dry flakes. It nourishes the lips with the oils of meadowfoam seed, jojoba seed, and grapeseed while shea butter provides long-lasting moisture.
  • It has a sweet sugary scent since it contains sugar. 
  • It does a really good job at exfoliating and removing dry flaky skin. 
  • I've done my own DIY lip scrub but it does not compare to this. My lips feel different when I use this scrub. They are much softer and conditioned. This has special ingredients in there that I find very soothing and softening.
If you prefer thin and non-sticky formulas then I would say go for the Pur-Liss and Fresh Sugar. If you don't mind a bit of thickness and tackiness then go with DermStore and Jack Black. These will provide you longer lasting moisture. For best result, pair the Fresh Sugar Lip Polish with the lip balm of your choice.

Have you tried any of these? What is your favorite lip treatment/balm?


  1. I really want to try the Dermstore lip treatment! I must say, my favorite is the Vaseline Lip Therapy, it is cheap and works amazingly. Plus the cocoa butter one smells amazing.

    1. I've not tried that one but I will keep it in mind once I'm done with these.

  2. I really like the jack black and fresh sugar too! Do you have a favorite flavor for the jack black lip balms?

    1. I only tried the mint flavor and I like it. The other flavor sounds really good too.

  3. I try to use my Fresh Sugar Polish at least once a week and then sleep with a night repair balm on - it really does make a difference!

    1. I use it sparingly too. I always rotate between these.

  4. Out of these, I've tried Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment and the Jack Black. The only thing I don't like about the Fresh is how fragile the product is. It broke so easily. Jack Black is definitely one of my all time favorites. I use it more so at home.
