If your current lip balm isn't doing it for you anymore, it's definitely time to make a switch, most likely to something a bit simpler. "It's like drinking a soda to quench thirst," Connecticut-based board-certified dermatologist Mona Gohara has previously told Allure. "You drink something that appeals to senses with no nutritional value, and shortly thereafter you are still thirsty. Same thing goes for balms loaded with flavor, fragrance, and menthol." That doesn't mean you have to completely avoid tasty or tingly balms — there are a few we really love on this list. Just be sure to pay attention to what is and isn't working for you.

Below, we're sharing the best lip balms that our lips can't live without, including a $40 luxury indulgence that beauty editors simply can't get enough of and a bevy of drugstore scores that ring in at under two bucks. This list contains no shortage of balms for every budget. 

Heck, we're even willing to bet your new go-to lip product (you know — that ride-or-die you carry around in your pocket) is sitting pretty somewhere in this list.
