The battle against dry, chapped lips is one that’s tough to win – especially as we head into the depths of winter. And with so many lip balms on the shelves – some with flavours and fragrances that end up making your skin even more irritated – finding the right product to soothe the soreness can be confusing, to say the least.
Space NK shoppers, however, reckon they’ve found the answer, in the form of a £12 tube of balm that has more than 100 5-star ratings on the luxury beauty website, and uses natural ingredients to hydrate and heal in a matter of minutes.
Dr Lipp’s Original Nipple Balm was, as the name suggests, originally formulated because founder Pontine suffered from eczema-prone skin, and found that the product with the fastest, and most lasting effect, was nipple balm designed for breastfeeding mothers.
After extensive research, she found that the key component in many of these balms was medical grade lanolin, a nourishing, natural ingredient whose benefits scientists have yet to replicate. As a result of her discovery, she took matters into her own hands, and voila! The Dr Lipp brand was born.
Since then, it’s become a favourite with make-up artists and a behind-the-scenes secret at many a celebrity photoshoot, as well as a go-to for thousands of members of Space NK’s community, who have voted it their ultimate Store Choice Lip Balm for 2018.
Reviewers call the tube a ‘lifesaver’, and frequently praise its rich, thick texture and long-lasting results.
‘I have one for my car, one for my bedside table, one for my makeup bag, I’m totally obsessed!’ one fan admitted. ‘It’s such a great texture, leaves a lovely sheen on your lips, you only need a tiny amount and the effect lasts for ages. It’s just the perfect lip balm, I’ll never use anything else!’
So, if your lips are feeling as battered by the weather as ours, what are you waiting for?
