I don’t know if anyone has noticed, but the weather has been more than ordinarily crazy recently. With had the winter rains and howling winds, beachy type sunshine, followed by overcast humidity and freezing cold nights!
All these changes are playing havoc with my lips! I have reverted back to a truly excellent range of products that are really reasonable and readily
Available. And they are made by Blistex. Their whole range is kind of androgynous ( so no need to worry about the implications of using them on the the tube!) and the two that I have found most beneficial for my cracked lips are : the Blistex intensive moisturiser, and the Blistex MEDPLUS for lips.
The intensive moisturiser comes in A small white tube (5ml) and does as you would imagine from he title it would, it softens and moisturises the dry area to help ease the causes of cracked lips. You can really feel it working deep into the lips, and is a bit of a miracle product. I was away this weekend and out in the cold weather for a charity gala all day, and had forgotten my intensive moisturiser (which was a big mistake that I will not be making again) my lips are now destroyed and I am having to use the moisturiser much more regularly to fix the problem than usual. My routine normally is that I will us this three times a day if I am out and about. And it seems to do the job! Blistex intensive moisturiser is around the £3.50 mark and is readily available from your usual high street stores and supermarkets. (Which considering how good it is, is a bargain!)
The Blistex MEDPLUS for lips is a great partner product and costs around £2.50 for a small pot.
This product tastes of cocoa butter and is nourishing without being a moisturiser. It is a conventional balm but does not have that annoying glossy texture that some other products do. And more importantly than that you can actually feel the product sinking into your lips! There is a kind of tingling sensation which really feels like it is getting to the root of the problem.
I heartily recommend these two products, especially as we’re heading into the colder months, get stocked up, while you can!
