Dawn: What’s your favourite [thick textured] lip treatment to date? I can’t tolerate my dry lips any more. My lips peel occasionally and I exfoliate but it’s never enough for me.
I know exactly how you feel, as I also suffer from chronically dry lips especially if I don’t look after them religiously.
Lips like ours need a thick textured lip balm for both day and night & these two products work a treat on me.
- Possibly the most raved about lip balm on the blogsphere, it’s rich & emollient in texture that instantly relieves lips from dryness, softens it and provides long lasting moisture.
- Contains shea butter, avocado oil, Vitamin E, Green Tea extract & protects lips from both UVA & UVB rays.
- Comes in a range of flavours, free from petrochemicals and synthetic fragrances.
- Available for $7.50 USD from Sephora, GetJackBlack.com and other grey market online retailers (that shall not be named).
- Made from 100% medical grade lanolin, this instantly smoothes, hydrates and softens even the driest and most chapped lips
- Apply a thick layer of this before you go to bed, and by the morning you’ll have plump moistursed lips that have healed overnight, and lip flakes will melt off by themselves. (You may need an extra night to heal severely chapped lips)
- Best of all, this is the only lip balm I have tried so far that actually strengthens the lip barrier naturally (without any silicone) and improve its resilience.
- Available in Australia at Mecca Cosmetica ($38 AUD) or online at Zuneta.com (£11.00 + shipping)
If I had to choose one:
- If you love a delicious tasting lip balm, you’re spoilt for choice with Jack Black, with flavours such as Mango & Mandarin and Black Tea & Blackberry to choose. It’s also versatile as both a day and night lip balm.
- But if you’re after something heavy-duty, I stand by my trusted Dr Lipp. The uninspiring taste of 100% medical grade lanolin is worth putting up with in exchange for plump, smooth and resiliently healthy lips.
