This is just a brief post to show you a couple of products that are saving my poor lips from the harsh Winter weather.
The first is a Burt's Bees lip shine which I got in the November Glossybox. As I'm more of a lipstick person lip salves aren't usually my thing but this is lovely. This one has got a slight colour to it so it gives a lovely sheen. I also liked that it didn't come off straight away after drinking a cup of tea!
I've been using it predominantly when I've been outside, school run, dog walking etc, as these are the times when I really feel the effects of the cold weather though central heating doesn't help either but I'm not switching that off!
The nice thing about Burt and his Bees is that it's all natural ingredients and enriched with Apricot Wax which serves as a super moisturiser and also provides the sheer shine that you get with it. I've also tried this over lipstick and it looks great as a gloss too. This product costs £6.99 (full size, as is the one in the photo) and if you want to check it out online the website is www.burtsbees.co.uk.
Organic Lip Balm Superfruits
The next one is by Naked Lips, its the Organic Lip Balm Superfruits. I've been using this one at night because it's a balm not a gloss and therefore its got all night to sink in and isn't sticky and doesn't smudge everywhere. It does give a lovely shine but not in a sticky way so you could use it during the day as well. Naked Lips boast all natural ingredients in this product, mainly from superfruits so you get all the benefit of the antioxidants that they've got in them. This little beauty is 5 euros and can be purchased from www.nakedlips.eu. Out of the two of them I'd probably buy the Burts Bees again rather than the Superfruits but that's because it's got a sheen to it so it's more like a gloss which I prefer and also it got a bit of colour to it. But they're both gorgeous and perfect for this time of year.
