This isn't going to be an overly exciting post today but I just wanted to apologise for being pretty absent recently. Last week Jack went on a trip with uni so I was trying hard to distract myself so I didn't miss him too much (it had been a year and a half since we'd been apart for more than about 4 days!) so I was doing lots with my flat mates which was really nice, but obviously forgot to blog in all that! Then this weekend, I got a little bit drunk (oops!) and didn't realise I wasn't meant to drink on one of the medications I'm on, so ended up A LOT more ill than just an average drunk uni student! Looks like I won't be drinking again for a while now! My uni timetable this week is pretty empty so I'm going to try and get back to lots of blogging and social media-ing!
|Dr Lipp - Original Nipple Balm For Lips|
To make this post a little more interesting, I thought I'd add in a little review. A little while back I saw the Dr Lipp Original Nipple Balm For Lips on etcllymlrs.com (which I do understand sounds wrong, nipple balm for your lips, really!?), but as Lily said on her blog, it was originally made for breast feeding mothers to soothe sore and possibly chapped nipples (yum) but has now been made into a lip balm for those like me who have horridly chapped and dry lips.
At first I was a little dissapointed as Lily said it was the only thing that had ever sorted her lips out, so I was hoping it might be the only thing for me too. Sadly it didn't completely sort them (I think I just need to accept now that I will be forever chapped) but it did make them feel a little better. I was also very surprised by the size, from the online pictures I expected it to be about three times as big as it actually is, especially for the £11 price tag! But a little bit goes a long way as the texture is very thick, almost like honey. Although it sits on top of your lips and takes hours to soak in, it still feels like they are being hydrated and moisturised hugely.
I find that this works best at night after using a lip scrub to get rid of any dry skin first and then leaving it on over night to avoid it being rubbed off from food or drinks. I do use it in the day when I'm at home but I prefer to use something less sticky when outside as the wind makes my hair stick to it, especially in this winter windy weather!
Overall, I would recommend it as it is a very good lip balm for chapped lips, but don't expect it to magically fix them and just be aware of the size for the money you're paying! Buy it here.
