You may have noticed I’ve been on the hunt for more natural ingredients in my beauty products. All the products I mention have been around longer than I have known them, but I’m glad to have made their discovery. My lips go through this dry transition after winter, and so on my search for a cure I encountered lanolin products. If you have never heard of lanolin before it’s pretty much lamb wool grease. Okay, it is lamb wool grease. You may be confused about this but it’s very hydrating and depending on the grade can be for multiple beauty purposes.
Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm For Lips
This was originally made as a nipple balm for women who were breastfeeding – hence why it’s named the way it is. This is 100% medical grade lanolin so it’s very thick, yellow to colour, and super hydrating on. It helps to soothe dry lips, nipples, cuticles, feet, abrasions, minor incisions, eczema and other dry patches. I like to apply this on my lips before I go to bed so that I wake up to a softer and smoother pout.
Lanolips Banana Balm 3-in-1
I’m usually suckered into buying anything that reads banana. It’s just a very yummy smell and this definitely is a treat for the nose! This 3-in-1 is a lip lustre that intensely conditions while it lasts long as a lip protectant. It’s 50% ultra pure grade lanolin, 98% naturally derived, includes vitamin E, and has no parabens or mineral oil. I always apply this right after I wash up in the morning so that my lips continue to stay super soft.
Lanolips Lip Ointment SPF 15 | Sunshine & Rhubarb
If I’m going to be out in the sun all day I always look for SPF protection, and of course something that will give my lips a nice tint of colour. I don’t own it but Lanolips is well known for their award winning Lip Ointment; so the fact that they now come in many different shades is pretty awesome! However these one’s are 60% ultra pure lanolin which is still very moisturizing. Corals are a must in my collection so Sunshine was a mandatory grab, and Rhubarb is a pretty natural mauve pink that is perfect for an everyday look.
