Dry lips?

My lips are so often dry these days! I’m still searching for something to keep my lips hydrated all day long AND add some colour at the same time so I will keep you posted on that journey…  Until then, here’s what I’ve learned about dealing with dry lips:

1. Vaseline only provides short-lived relief and seems to leave my lips even drier! 

2. There’s a good reason that many state Elizabeth Arden Eight-hour Skin Protectant (the one in the tube at about £27, not in the lippy format) as their main go-to product. Yes, it smells a bit odd (herbally but not in the best way) but it really does hydrate the lips – I use it at night and can sometimes still feel it when I wake up in the morning. I find it a bit fiddly for daytime as you have to squeeze it out on to your finger first, but my friend Dina uses it in the day and it makes her lips look nice and shiny, so this gets a massive thumbs up from me. Also great for dry elbows/knees!

3. I stumbled across Dr PawPaw Multipurpose soothing balm in a wonderful beauty box that my friend Kaysheen got me from Look Fantastic to help me start blogging (thanks Kaysh!) and this really does moisturise lips, but does need regular re-application and is also a little fiddly (as above). The good thing is that it comes in various shades – mine is the Tinted Ultimate Red – but don’t be fooled, it’s not bright red at all, just the smallest hint of colour. Around £7 online and looks like Superdrug may be stockists.

4. I’m not usually a fan of No7 products, but their BB Lips is a really lovely lip product which works for moisturising and adding colour. It feels like you’re wearing a lip balm but it looks a little glossy, and the colours are great! I definitely recommend this, £9 from Boots.

I’ll let you know when I find the ultimate lip product that gives a great dose of moisture in the perfect shade with a little gloss-effect, lasts all day and doesn’t transfer onto my wine glass…!

  1. Great topic! I look forward to your next top lip product, as you introduced me to the Lizzie 24hr cream. I do love it, but do agree it’s a little fiddly and a big tube for lugging around, however defo does the job too.
    I’m going to head to boots to try No.7 soon though… 🙂
