But i promise, ill get more organised and get back to posting at least once a week! As you know if you've read my last post, I've also signed up to Birchbox, so ill be doing a review of each box month by month! I've also got some plans for Christmas themed posts - any ideas of you would like to see are welcome! I'd love for you guys to get involved in my posts - if you want to do a guest post just contact me and id be happy to do one for you too!
But enough of the apologies, time for a review!
Dr Lipps Nipple Balm for Lips : RRP £11.50
I received this cute 3ml sample with a beauty box a couple of months ago and it was a product I had heard about on a number of the blogs I read. It claims to be a multi purpose balm, originally used for breast feeding mums because the balm is hypoallergenic and super nourishing. It is still used for this, as well as on dry cuticles, dry skin, split ends, eczema, you name it, it does it!
The thing I noticed the most when using this is how hard I had to push to get even a tiny bit of product out of the bottle - its super thick so really did need some squeezing. Not that this was a bad thing at all, because it is so super thick, you only need the tiniest amount to cover your lips. Its not sticky, not greasy, but glossy and really will stay put on your lips until it completely sinks in. I do understand why it would be used on other parts of the body for skin issues, but I don't think id use it for anything other than my lips - just because of the amount of shine the product gives.
Winter is always a nightmare time for me and my lips, and this has really helped with moisturisng them. I would definitely recommend this for maintenance over the winter months. This sample is nearly finished, so ill be purchasing the full size as soon as I run out!
What are your winter saviors?
