Winter SOS: Lip Salvation

lip winter essentials


See what I did with the title? 😉
The worst thing about winter is dry lips. I can’t bear it. I always have a million lip balms floating around, I don’t want to get caught out and I have been known to rush to shop to buy one had I left the house without any. So for me a multiple supply is a must! Lip balm companies must make a mint out of me in winter 😉
A lip scrub is also pretty essential (in my opinion). You can make them super easily but I have been drawn to is this Lemon Cupcake flavour from For Goodness Grape – it really does taste of Lemon Cupcakes! I steer clear of mineral oil based and the Natural/organic ones I have been loving recently are Jason Aloe & Beeswax – a lovely mint flavour and Estelle & Third which has a yummy raspberry flavour. Both super moisturising with long lasting results.
Nuxe Reve De Miel is a gorgeous balm. Lovely and thick with a orange flavour that reminds me of the chocolate orange cream’s from Roses – good enough to eat! This is too thick for the daytime so I use this over night as a treatment and leave it to work it’s magic.

    I have loads of lipbalms, I never seem to finish one up! I do love the look of the Nuxe one for a deep overnight treatment on my lips. I might have to treat myself!
