As the chillier and colder weather comes around again we suddenly realise that our lips need extra help.
Lipsticks do not run so smooth anymore, we feel our lips peeling and getting sore by the hour. If we don’t act immediately sisters … disaster will happen. Let’s face it, nobody wants to be around with a bad lip.
Those lip balms have saved me year after year. I have at least one in my bag and many around my house and at the office.
I have tried and used many lip balms but those are the ones that really work for me. They are my S.O.S. lip balms. I will try new brands this year and will share my reviews and thoughts with you.
LET’S SPILL THE TEA, SHALL WE?
LUSH LIP SCRUBS
This is a favourite on my beauty cabinet. You gotta peal and renew! So this should be your first step. It will give your lips a gentle exfoliation with fine castor sugar and moisturising jojoba oil.
I use mine twice a week. Your lipsticks will glide on effortlessly after using this baby. It’s a keeper!
I simply adore them. All of them! Those lip balms are nourishing, they help even with very dry lips. Very moisturising, smells divine, does not feel greasy at all and leave a minty sensation which is very shooting specially for sore lips.
NUXE ULTRA-NOURISHING LIP BALM RÊVE DE MIE
My utmost Holy Grail Lip Balm.
I have been using this balm for so long and it is a true must-have for dry lips. I use it everyday at night as a lip mask. In the morning my lips are so incredibly smooth and all the dryness is gone. Smells divine. I also use sometimes a little bit on top of a lipstick for a matte effect. I have learnt this tip with the gorgeous and talented Lisa Eldridge.
LOUIS WIDMER LIP CARE STICK UV
I love this lip balm because it definitely does what it promises. I have been using it a lot last couple of days. It nourishes, moisturises and deeply regenerates dry, very chapped and irritated lips. It has UV Protection so it is great if you are planning to hit the ski slopes as it prevents sun burn blisters and cold sores. It is also perfect to be used as a lipstick base.
LUCAS PAPAW OINTMENT
An Australian friend has introduced me to this winner in 2010. Since then it has become a Holy Grail product for me.
This ointment is simply fantastic. It prevents chapped lips, it totally destroys cold sores and soothes your lips beautifully.
DR. HAUSCHKA LIP CARE STICK
A a lip balm, which can be applied without hesitation. It is moisturising and protective. It really nurtures dry, chapped lips, soothing, softening and nourishing even the most sensitive lips.
JURLIQUE ROSE LOVE BALM
I am obsessed with the smell of Roses and overall feel of this lip balm.
It moisturises and soothes sensitive, dry and chapped lips providing antioxidant protection. It also protects against moisture loss like a charm.
LULU & BOO ORGANICS ROSE & VANILLA LIP BALM
This balm glides like butter on your lips. It has an exquisite formula that nourishes, softens and protects so much your lips.
I personally love it! Adding to the product: it is 100% organic made with Apricot, Jojoba and Rosehip oils. You should try!
