When my lips are feeling dry and flaky, which is more often than I like to admit, there are a few little tubs of goodness I turn to:
Nuxe Réve De Miel Lip Balm £9 – A cult classic, this is always my preferred option at the moment! Thanks to the grapefruit extract it tastes pretty much exactly like lemon tart, and is so intensely moisturising that I can still feel it on my lips when I wake up the morning after applying it as part of my evening routine! Since I started using it I’ve noticed quite a difference in the softness and plumpness of my lips. The price is high but if you’re in need of some serious moisture in your lips I’d recommend this product every single time.
Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips £2 – I’ve used this for years and I really like it when I want to add a little hint of natural colour and juicy glow to my lips. It doesn’t do a whole lot of moisturising, instead it’s supposed to protect them from the harsh elements of sun, wind and cold.
The Body Shop Shea Lip Butter – £4 – I love shea scents, so this was always going to be a winner for me! It’s really moisturising and tastes great. The only thing is it’s very pale and can make my lips look a bit washed out, so best to use this under a lipstick or gloss rather than on it’s own!
The Body Shop Foundation Lip Butter – £4 – This one is dragon-fruit scented, a lovely summery fruit scent! It’s really sweet so if you’re not a fan of sweet scents then this one isn’t for you, and it’s the same colour as the shea one too, but really moisturising!
