Whether you're stuck inside with the central heating, trying to cool down with the AC, or in the harsh outdoor weather there is no doubt that it causes havoc on our lips.
And the best way to keep them soft??...apply lip balm of course! Personally it's the first thing I do in the morning (well almost - after all the usual bathroom antics, loo, teeth, shower etc) and the last thing I do night in my night time skin care, not to mention the copious amounts in between!
I'm sure we all have our trusty favourite that sits on our desks or lives in our handbag. Everyone is different but I prefer to stay away from petroleum jelly. If your a Carmex gal like myself you'll love this brand new lip "ointment" - Lanolips 101 ointment.
One of the ingredients in Carmex among a whole host of other things is Lanolin. I guess you can put two and two together...but Lanolips is 100% Ultra-pure medical-grade lanolin, which is all natural and a cruelty free product (double yay!) and it's the first of it's kind as a beauty lip balm!
Colour: In the tube it had a white tinge to it but appears clear on the lips.
Formula: This has a nice thick (but not to0 thick) consistency and is super moisturising , it's non sticky and sinks into the lips so you can still apply your favourite lippy on top (if you feel like it)
Packaging: The balm comes in a 9g squeezy tube, which is in a super girlie pastel pink and has a cute little sheep on it (this comes from the creator Kristen who grew up on a sheep farm on in New South Wales...and well because it's Lanolin)
Overall I'm really loving this product, as I said it's super moisturising and perfect size to keep in your clutch/desk/car not to mention the super cute packaging.
Have you tried Lanolips?
