So hot right now: Guy-friendly lip balms

Really, really, ridiculously hydrating

Site: Anna McClelland

Yes, we know most lip products are aimed at women, but that doesn't mean you have to buy Blistex

Do your lips (and whoever's kissing them) a favour by adding one of these made-for-man balms to your daily routine. In packaging you won't be afraid to pull out at the pub, each is low on shine but high in hydration - Derek Zoolander would definitely approve.

1. Aesop Protective Lip Balm SPF 30, $19,
Aesop's a no-brainer for guy and girl-friendly skincare without the fuss and frills. Their Protective Lip Balm is a case in point: broad spectrum SPF 30 makes it perfect for the guy on the go, while jojoba, castor and sunflower seed oils soften and smooth. The fragrance is lightly citrusy.

2.  Kiehl's Facial Fuel No-Shine Moisturising Lip Balm, $10,
Promising to soften chapped and cracked lips without so much as a hint of telltale gloss, this shea butter formulation is the goods.

3.  Malin + Goetz Lip Moisturiser, $16,
When a product doesn't even identify as a lip balm, you know it won't be shiny or sticky. Instead, Malin + Goetz have produced a fragrance and colour-free gel that's garnered a cult following. 

4. Tom Ford for Men Hydrating Lip Balm, $38,
After something a little more luxe for your lips? Tom Ford for Men delivers with a nourishing balm made with a blend of natural oils and butters, as well as a boost of vitamins to improve your lips' texture.
