My Winter Lip Care

Thursday, November 08, 2012

As the weather gets colder, our lips get more and more prone to chapping or getting damaged, which is never a great look!  I thought I'd share my favourite lip care products for the colder months. - Let me know in the comments if there's any you recommend, I'm always on the lookout for new products!

Vaseline | Nivea Pearly Shine | Softlips French Vanilla | Mint Carmex
Vaseline Lip Therapy with Cocoa Butter - Vaseline is pretty much a classic essential in every girl's handbag;  I really like the Cocoa Butter Vaseline as it's a bit of a change to the original, it does the job of caring for your lips while smelling really great too. The trademark tin is really cute as well which is an added bonus!

Nivea Pearly Shine - This lipsil is great if you want a bit more of a 'made up' look while still protecting your lips. The pearly sheen is really pretty and adds something to quite a boring product. It also has a lovely sweet smell which is really nice!

Mint Carmex - This lip balm is more of an industrial lip care product as it's main purpose is to give your lips a deep condition and protection. I find that it stings a bit on the first application because of the menthol, but it's definitely worth getting used to. You can't beat Carmex for its effectiveness!

Softlips French Vanilla - This is probably the lip balm I've been using the longest; I first bought it when I was about 13 and have been repurchasing it ever since! It's quite a light balm, so probably not ideal for extremely chapped lips, but definitely my go-to for top ups. The smell is gorgeous, and the SPF15 makes it all the more appealing. It's lovely!

I hope you found this post useful if you've been on the look out for a new lip balm, I definitely recommend all four! What's your favourite lip care product for the cold weather?
