One of PopSockets’ more recent additions to their ever-expanding line of innovative, ergonomic phone holders may surprise you. No, it’s not another cool and trendy design, nor a collab with a popular case company. It’s not even really a tech product, but it will have you picking up your phone a whole lot more often if that’s even possible for my fellow millennials.
PopGrip Lips combine the support and comfort of a PopGrip with the convenience of a moisturizing lip balm to ensure that you always have hydration on hand. All PopSockets products feature a retractable grip that sticks to the back of your phone case, and pops out accordion-style when you’re ready to scroll through Instagram, snap a selfie, or set it down to stream your favorite shows.
The PopGrip Lips are no different in this sense. While they can be used for more comfortable phone-holding, what makes them truly unique is that their tops house a hydrating lip balm that’ll make parched pouts soft and kiss-worthy.
What’s even more amazing about this genius problem-solver is that PopSockets only uses natural ingredients to fuel its formula. It’s made with nourishing beeswax, jojoba seed oil, rosemary leaf extract, and vitamin E, so there are no gimmicks here — you can trust it to heal and hydrate your lips.
In addition to several of their own flirty fragranced formulas (Strawberry Feels, Watermellionaire, 100% Cotton Candy, So Vanilla, Cherry Cherry, and Blue Radberry), the brand has also collabed with Burt’s Bees to create a slightly more expensive collection of sophisticated PopGrip Lips that are filled with their best-selling original lip balm.
And as if having lip balm on you at all times couldn’t be more convenient, PopGrip Lips are completely refillable. After you run out, you can purchase just the balm without having to buy the whole PopGrip all over again.
I first spotted PopSockets PopGrip Lips on TikTok, and at the time, I was keeping a stash of lip balms separately at home, in my purse, and at the office. Somehow I still had terribly cracked lips. I knew that buying one would be a game-changer — at least from a convenience standpoint, and it did not disappoint.
I’m obsessed with the way these balms make my lips feel supple and luxurious, and appreciate how its compact-style packaging doesn’t open up when thrown into a purse or tucked into my back pocket. Some of the fragrances admittedly smell slightly middle school-y, but once you find the right one, I can promise that you won’t go back to toting tubes again.
