When my dad was asking what I was after for my Christmas I as per usual found myself drawing a blank. I really should keep a note as I go of things that I have heard of that I really want to try- maybe that can be a New Years resolution for me! After scouring the Internet and blogs I managed to come up with a few things that I had been keen to give a whirl, one of which was Lanolips. I think it was gorgeous Charlotte that first brought the company to my attention earlier in the year, and since then I have seen it coming up all over the place!
Dry, flaky, painful lips are what I dread every winter, and I have tried a multitude of products to try and help me out, so I was hoping for a miracle from this little tube. Of the product Lanolips say:
"This ultimate luxuriously creamy ointment contains 100% Ultra Pure Grade Lanolin which literally melts between your fingers. This magical multi-purpose product has multiple uses such as extremely chapped lips, dry cuticles, dry, itchy skin, dry nasal passages and more. Suitable for even the most sensitive skin."
After using it for a few weeks I have to say I am a total convert- I had refrained for buying it for myself as I had felt £11 was a lot of money to spend on a lip balm- but now I can totally see why you would.
The product itself is really thick, so you do have to squeeze really hard to get some out of the small opening at the top, but that actually makes it hard to get out too much, so there is little chance of waste. You also only need a really small amount of product to cover the lips so a small amount at a time is perfect. Even though the consistency is thick it then melts onto the lips and boy what a feeling! I was thrilled from first application, when I was first squeezing away to get it out the tube I thought this was going to be useless but I was so wrong, once on the lips it is incredible how smooth they feel, and not just in a slick lying on top of the skin way, but in a deep intense moisturising way.
It is not like any other balm I have ever tried out, my lips feel utterly incredibly after applying this and do so for hours after, it has done wonders for my messy lips, and you use so little I can see this lasting for a long while. My top tip is if you use it on your lips and have it left on your finger just rub that on your cuticles afterwards, it has done wonders for them too! It is really fab for dry skin generally so it is a really handy tube to carry with you.
I am now mad keen to try the Lemon Aid version, and there are also coloured versions available that contain SPF so they are good for you in lots of ways! You can buy Lanolips from Boots and other places on line, the 101 ointment is £11.22.
