9 Hydrating Lip Masks to Save Your Skin This Winter

From overnight balms to pre-lipstick treatments.

By: Hannah Baxter

Dry, cracked, and irritated lips are, unfortunately, one of winter’s inevitable calling cards. With low humidity levels—not to mention a heater working overtime—it often takes a few specialty products to protect and hydrate that delicate skin. Thanks to K-beauty, there are more lip masks on the market than ever before, from jelly-balm hybrids that work while you sleep, to a lip-shaped sheet mask. Do your lips a favor, and check out our nine favorite formulas below.


Burt’s Bees Moisturizing Lip Mask, $3

A blend of meadowfoam seed and almond oils make this lip mask a must for moisturizing severely dry lips.

Peach Slices Aqua Jelly Lip Mask, $4

Aside from being a prime selfie moment, this moisturizing jelly mask is packed with shea butter, coconut, honey, and vitamin C from Japanese yuzu citrus.

KNC Beauty Collagen Infused Lip Mask, $5

Rose flower oil, hyaluronic acid, cherry extract, and vitamin E help condition your lips into a perfectly smooth canvas for your preferred lip product.

Clinique Pep Start Pout Restoring Night Mask, $18

A long-lasting night balm with plenty of shea butter so you wake up with plump, moisturized lips.

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, $20

The gold standard for many a beauty editor, this overnight lip treatment forms a protective film that cocoons your mouth in hydration while also exfoliating any dry flakes.

Kiehl’s Buttermask for Lips, $26

No, you’re not actually spreading butter on your lips with this mask. Instead, plenty of coconut oil and wild mango butter will soften and moisturize your mouth by the time you hit snooze in the morning.

Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask, $26

Leave it to a cult-favorite lipstick brand to design a deeply hydrating lip mask filled with agave nectar and jojoba oil to help your lip color last longer and look smoother.

Aritaum Ginger Sugar Overnight Lip Mask, $29

The murumuru and shea butter blend in this nighttime mask will soothe even the most irritated lips.

Pai Head To Toe Hero Buriti Balm, $30

While technically an all-purpose balm, we love to slather on a thick layer at night and bask as the buriti oil and calendula deeply moisturize our lips.
