So this is a question I get asked a LOT ~ particularly this time of year ~ ‘What is good for my dry lips, nothing is working!’
Well let me introduce you to these two babies!!
This time of year plays havoc on our skin and lips! And no matter what, if you want to wear some nice lipstick it’s just not going to work on dry, flaky, cracked lips ~ it just won’t look good!!
So on the left is one of my fave skincare brands La Roche Posay and their fantastic Nutritic ~ transforming care for very dry lips with biolipids and Ceramide 5. It’s a really handy little lipstick style moisturiser and priced around the €6 mark it’s a fantastic handbag hero!
And secondly the iconic Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream ~ I picked up this handy little tin on my flight to Ibiza for just €8! Amazing value and again perfect size to pop in your handbag! This product has been around for years and years and certainly has a firm place in my own kit and my personal makeup bag too! I use this as a conditioning gloss during the day, over lippy for a gorgeous sheen and also on any dry patches of skin on my face at nighttime ~ it’s amazing!
So there you are, 2 tried and tested firm favourites of mine! Not all lip products actually moisturise the lips like these do. Some feel good when you put them on but actually dry your lips out more, so you keep using the product again and again so just be careful!
