I don’t know about you, but my lips have really suffered this winter. Central heating and the cold outside have dried my lips out something rotten.
Over many years I’ve tried many lip balms, and nearly all didn’t help or made the problem worse (thats a whole other blog post). The only thing I know to work reliably on chapped lips are lanolin based balms and as the name suggests, Lanolips excel in this department. I’ve tried a few of their products, all have been great, and the new 101 Ointment in Strawberry* is no exception.
The ingredients are Medical Grade Lanolin, Vitamin E and 100% Fruit Extract, in this case Strawberry. It smells gloriously fruity, and a true strawberry taste as you would imagine. Strawberries though aren’t just there to make the ointment smell nice, the fruit’s main ingredient is alpha-hydroxy acid, helping to slough off dead skin.
The great thing about 101 Ointment is that it isn’t just good for a perfect pout, but that there are many uses for it. Try it on dry cuticles, dry patches of skin, sore noses after a cold, anywhere that needs moisture and protection. It’s a beautiful product, perfect for the handbag, to be used any time.
Cruelty Free, baby and vegetarian friendly, 100% natural and dermatologically tested. I think everyone should own one.
