These Are The Best Multi-Purpose Balms To Save Your Winter Skin

These Are The Best Multi-Purpose Balms To Save Your Winter Skin

Our approach to balms is a little like Toula’s dad’s stance on Windex in My Big Fat Greek Wedding: apply it to anything – anything, at all – for instant relief. Got a rash? Balm. Puffy eyes? Balm. Dealing with a breakup? Balm.

After all, if your skin is dehydrated, dull and distressed like ours (lucky us, right?), you’ll often need something more nourishing than a lightweight lotion. Think of balms as heartier, more concentrated, solid forms of your favourite ingredients, ready to break down and get to work once massaged into the skin.

And, unlike lots of liquid formulas, they also generally don’t contain any water, so a little goes a long way, meaning you’re always getting more bang for your (balm) buck. Ready to build your balm wardrobe? We’ve found our favourites for everything; balms leave no skin issue or body part behind. Trust us; these products are actually the balm.


The word “everything” is in the name for a reason. Use it in the classic sense to soothe dry or chapped skin, or try out its many uses by applying to lips, rubbing into dry cuticles, or even using as a melting massage oil – it’s a serious desert island product.

  1. Have not used balms before, thought that they are little heavy for skin and thus cause breakouts.
    But it maybe a good investment for the winter times when the skin needs a little more hydration!
    Thanks BH for the article! Food for thought!

  2. Im actually having a major problem with splits at the corners of my mouth. Ive tried so many things to get rid of them and nothing is working. Im now going to try the Trilogy Balm and see what happens.

  3. I have lots of lip balms and have used a few cleansing balms. The cleansing balms are not my favourite as I’m not a big fan of oils. I have almost finished a L’Occitane multipurpose balm which has been good so I should look at the ones in the article for a replacement.

  4. I have tried quite a few brands of lip balm. The result has been dryer lips than what I started. The only two that work for me are Burt Bees (I use the tinted balm) and plain old Petroleum Jelly (aka Vaseline).
