Makeup Wars | My Favourite Lip Treatments

 photo makeup-wars.jpg

This week’s Makeup Wars post is going to be pretty short and sweet for me. I discovered my holy grail lip product about 5 years ago and haven’t had to worry about experimenting with lip treatments since. Since discovering it I have not had chapped lips at all with the exception of a brief period one winter where I was not drinking enough water and became quite dehydrated. What is this magical product that has given me soft, hydrated, chap free lips?

Lansinoh HPA Lanolin Cream. Yes. Nipple Cream. It may be marketed as nipple cream but basically it’s just 100% pure, medical grade lanolin. You know the expensive Lanolips balms that many swear by? Well what do you think makes them so special… lanolin. Buying the Lansinoh version is a much more affordable option. It is great for use anywhere you are experiencing chapped, irritated skin. It has no taste or smell and best of all it lasts for hours an hours. If I apply it at night it is still there in the morning.

    I have heard so much about this! What does it smell like? I have such a strong aversion to some smells…

    I just knew this was the product that you would post about today! 😉 Being a Mom of a week-old infant, this nipple cream is at my side constantly! The only thing that I don’t like about it for the lips is how thick it is. But, it sure does moisturize. Plus, you know that if something is safe enough for a baby, it is certainly gentle and pure!

      It is different because it’s so thick. Took my husband a while to take to it and now he uses nothing but. Body heat softens it though so it doesn’t feel so thick once applied. I don’t even find it thick feeling anymore. I just love how it lasts! I hate balms that disappear after what seems like 10 mins!
