I know better than most people, the problems of having dry cracked lips. Unfortunately they always tend to strike when we least expect it; WINTER (because we convince ourselves we won’t have the same problem like last year), On HOLIDAY (because we forget that Air-conditioning is on attack mode!)
I will be first to admit to suffering like many during both the above periods of the year and odd periods during the rest of the year. I try to have something handy in my handbag i.e.lipsalve but normally I have taken it out when I’m sorting my bag (clearing out the reams of receipts etc), because I always have bright ideas like that!
I decided to share my favourite products with you, and as you will see, I am slowly collecting quite the range of products. The three main brands that I use for looking after my lips are Vaseline, Lypsyl and Burts Bees.
I am a huge fan of Vaseline and have always kept them as one of my go to products. The two products that I have been using from their range are the Vaseline Lip Therapy with Aloe Vera and the Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips. I love the latter of the two because it gives me a nice pink tint to my lips for something extra. I also love that you don’t need much of the vaseline in order to give your lips a nourished feel. Both of these are on sale in Boots for less than £2 at the moment. (Think of those advantage points people!)
I actually got sent the Burts Bees replenishing lip care by the people over at Producttesting.co.uk to try out and absolutely loved it. It has a nice scent and leaves a little tingle on my lips which feels like it is getting right into my lips to help them. This can be bought direct from the site for £3.69 and is well worth the money as it’s a fab product.
The Lypsyl products are new to my collection and were kindly sent by the lovely people at Lypsyl themselves to try them out for myself. I got sent original, strawberry and cherry to test out and absolutely love them. The product stays on your lips for ages and keeps them feeling super hydrated and also smells amazing. These fab products can be found on amazon and can be bought in bulk which means they last ages. Prices vary a bit so it’s worth looking if you are interested yourself.
I hope you liked my post featuring these 3 amazing brands, and I hope it has given you some inspiration to buy yourself some lip saviours before you find yourself under attack from cracked lip syndrome.
*as per my post, the Lypsyl and Burts Bees were sent for me to review, all opinions are my own.
