Seeing as the weather is cold in the U.K. it is important that we take care of our lips and keep them hydrated….it is always important to keep them hydrated, moisturised and soft especially if you want to be able to apply your lipstick/lipgloss smoothly ensuring that they look presentable.
Within this post I just want to talk about my top 5 products which I use to keep my lips soft and hydrated.
1. LUSH Lip Scrub
The LUSH lip scrub is A M A Z I N G…literally the best thing ever invented. If you find that your lips are a little dry then this lip scrub is perfect for you…it comes in many different flavours such as Popcorn, Bubblegum, Mint Julips and many more… it is also edible! Yum! In order for it to work you will need to apply the product onto your lips like a lip balm and move your lips together to ensure that the product ex foliates your lips. Once this is done you can either wipe it off or lick it off. The product leaves your lips soft, moisturised and provides them with the vitamins in which they require. I use the popcorn one and I love it!!
The price for the product is £5.50 and comes in one size only!
You can purchase it either on-line or in store.
Please see the link below to the product in Lush.
2. EOS Lip Balm
What is there not to love about EOS lip balms? I mean the packaging, flavour selection/colour and application is great and it keeps your lips soft and hydrated. The lip balm can be applied before lipstick/lipgloss application and can be used throughout the day to keep your lips hydrated. I love the application of this lip balm…all you have to do is unscrew the lip and move the ball over your lips and it’s done.
You can either purchase them in packs or individually as well.
I really like the Sweet Mint flavour as it leaves your lips feeling fresh and little plumper which is great. However, there are many different flavours to pick from such Strawberry Sorbet, Sweet Mint, Pomegranate and Raspberry, Blueberry and Acai, Lemon, Summer Fruit and Wildberry.
You can find the product anywhere…I normally pick mine up from Selfridges.
But I have left a few links below for you to check out.
3. Piz Buin Lip Balm
It is always important to protect our skin from the sun but it is also important not to forget our lips. I really like to use the Piz Buin Lip Balm as it consists of a SPF within it which is either a factor 20 or 30 in order to protect our lips from the sun and to keep them soft and hydrated. I tend to use the Piz Buin Lip Balm a lot more during the summer time and when I’m away as there is nothing more unattractive then sore burnt red lips…ouch!
The application is very basic just like a lipstick.
Please see the link below on where to purchase the lip balm.
4. NIVEA Lip Therapy
The classic lip care!
You can’t go wrong with the NIVEA Essential Care Lip Balm. I’ve been using this lip balm since Primary School…and it has always worked. I have always loved the NIVEA products I personally think that they do as they say perfectly. You can find this in many different flavours but I prefer the classic original one (as seen above). The application is easy as it can be applied on like a lipstick and really helps cracked and dry lips.
This product has always helped me and it will forever be in my make-up bag. ❤
And it’s cheap 😀
Please see links.
Vaseline…need I say more? It is a saviour for everything. The Vaseline line is hard to pick from you can either go for the classic or the lip care with different flavours. Vaseline helps to keep your lips hydrated and soft. You literally can just take the Vaseline Petroleum Jelly pot with you can it will work wonders for all your troubled areas….which is great if you are travelling.
We all love Vaseline don’t we?! ❤
Until Next time.
