When it comes to lip balm, most guys just want something that works. Whether you're looking to repair cracked winter lips, prevent a blistering sunburn on the slopes, or just keep lips from drying out through the day, you want a balm you can trust and one that won't goop up, leave lip marks on glasses, or remind you of that fruit-tasting gunk your junior high girlfriend slathered on every 10 minutes. We've waded through a bevy of balms, from the newest products to time-tested classics, to bring you eight of our favorites, good for every situation.
Best Cold-Weather Barrier: Aquaphor Lip Repair
For quick relief for winter-worn lips, or to keep cold, dry air from doing more damage, squeeze on Aquaphor Lip Repair and you're good to go. Think Carmex but no messy jar, no goopy chunks, and no petroleum jelly. However, while we love Lip Repair, we thought Lip Repair + Protect was super thick and tasted like sunscreen, so don't buy that version by mistake. [$4.49; drugstore.com]
