The three best-selling lip balms for your cracked winter pout – and prices start from just $10  

Beauty retailer Mecca has revealed the three best-selling lip balms in-store and online, and the prices start from just $10.

According to the store, with the onset of winter and cooler weather, there have been three products that have been repeatedly flying off the shelves in the past two months – and none of them break the bank.

‘These are the most hydrating, nourishing, and soothing lip balms on our shelves (and your desks, bedside tables, bags and pockets) right now,’ the store’s team said on their website. 

So what are the three products you need to invest in and why?

Beauty retailer Mecca has revealed the three best-selling lip balms in-store and online, and the prices start from just $10 

1. Mario Badescu Vanilla Lip Wax, $10

‘A classic throw-in-your-bag product, this vitamin E, jojoba and beeswax lip balm is… the blue jeans of lip balms and a reliable lip soother,’ the Mecca team wrote.

The $10 product boasts a 4.4 star rating on the Mecca website, where more than 100 women have attested to its qualities.

‘Loved this! And it worked especially well with the eczema on my lips,’ one woman wrote.

Another added: ‘This is the best lip balm I’ve ever used. Left my lips very soft.’

The product comes in non-descript Mario Badescu packaging, but delivers on ingredients including jojoba, nourishing vitamin E and beeswax.

The second lip balm on the bestseller list is Kiehl's Lip Balm #1 in Mango , which costs $15 and has been on the bestseller list since the 1960s (pictured in use)

‘Replenishing squalane rises to the occasion alongside aloe vera and vitamin E, working together to give dry, chapped or cracked lips a new lease on life, instantly,’ the Mecca team explained. 

Like the Mario Badescu, the Kiehl’s balm has an impressive 4.4 star rating online, where it has alternatively been described as ‘miracle’ and a ‘godsend’. 

‘This has become my favourite lip balm!’ one woman wrote.

‘Firstly it smells amazing, but it actually works in fixing dry chapped lips. My lips have become softer by using this and they aren’t reliant on continually topping up. It has definitely become a holy grail for me.’

The most expensive lip balm on the list, the Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm , $35, is a staple in many a celebrity's beauty bag (pictured in use)

‘It gives your lips the moisture punch  they need and it gives them a glossy shine. Wear it out for the day or to bed as a lip mask. It’s addictive.’

Another described the product as a ‘game-changer’ for cracked lips. 

‘I suffer from horrible dry peeling lips in winter and eczema, and this is finally a lip balm that doesn’t sting when I use it,’ another woman posted.

‘After two days, my lips looked normal. Thank you Summer Fridays, you have no idea what this has done to my self confidence in winter.’
