3 Saviours For Dry Lips

As much as I love this time of year and all the joy it brings, there's one thing I can't learn to love, and that's the cold weather. Even though I'm constantly layering oils and balms onto my skin, eventually the dehydration begins to show and my lips start to crack and peel. Not a pretty sight
Luckily, I haven't had to suffer too much this Winter as I've found 3 amazing products that get rid of unsightly cracked lips, almost instantly. There's a range of textures and price points so hopefully you'll find something to suit you! I hope you enjoy!

The Body Shop Wild Argan Solid Oil Lips - £4
I picked this up not too long ago after seeing Fleur De Force raving about it in multiple YouTube videos. This is the best option if you're looking for a daily lip balm that you can apply without having to worry about it. It's a solid oil that melts into the lips giving a slight sheen without adding colour. The slightly warm musky scent is gorgeous and very appropriate for this time of year. I've been using this a lot recently as my everyday lip product because it's simple, quick and perfect for keeping my lips soft and moisturised. A great one to try if on a budget or maybe to gift to your partner if they're hesitant about using traditional 'girly' lip balms. My hubby loves it!

Nuxe Reve De Miel Ultra Nourishing Lip Balm - £9.50
I don't think I need to say too much about this one as it's a well known cult classic in the beauty-sphere. The main things you need to know is firstly it smells gorgeous, (like lemon sherbet and honey) and it has a thick almost waxy texture which is perfect for softening sore, dry lips. I tend to use it when I go to bed or before makeup because it creates the smoothest base for lip products. It also softens any loose, peeling skin so that you can gently exfoliate it off leaving behind soft kissable lips! This definitely lives up to it's hype!

Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil - 01 Honey - £18
I feel like this is the king out of the 3. It's more luxurious, both in texture and application. It's an oily-gel like texture that coats the lips in a thick layer of comfort, hence the name. The packaging is fancier than most lip balms and it also comes with a fat, padded almost doe-foot like applicator which smooths the product on perfectly. To me this one has the nicest scent. It's soft and slightly sweet. If your lips are seriously dry, cracked or even bleeding, this will dramatically improve the look and feel of them after just one use. It's also my go-to for pamper nights!

What are your secret weapons for battling sore, dry lips? Let me know!

Thank you so much for reading!
