Even though we usually have no fewer than three lip products floating around in the depths of our bags, those sticky glosses and dried-out primers aren’t going to provide the hydration our pouts crave around this time of year. So, we decided to do something about it. And after scouring drugstore and department-store brands alike, we narrowed down the offerings to 10 majorly soothing balms that are like magic elixers for your kisser. Oh, and they make pretty great stocking stuffers, too (hint, hint!).
