I have a confession to make: I'm a serial lip-chewer. I know it's disgusting, and it even sometimes leads to my lips bleeding, so it's hardly good for me lip health, but it's something I do when I'm nervous, just like other people chew their nails. I've tried almost every lip balm out there - Carmex, Vaseline, The Body Shop lip butter, LUSH's lip scrubs. You name it, I've been there. I'm pretty much ready to try anything at this point.
So, when I was on holiday I was a little skeptical when my boyfriend's mum picked this pot of 7 balm for me. I was filled with 'oh god how am I going to explain that NOTHING works for me and I'll still wake up to my lips bleeding from cracking when I smile tomorrow morning' apprehension. But, it worked. Like seriously I was pretty astounded. It's full of natural ingredients that are super good for nourishing your skin - manuka honey, aloe vera oil, shea oil, coconut oil, avacodo oil and more.
In the past lipstick has looked, to say the least, pretty grim on me. Who wants their lip cracks to be made even more noticeable by adding pigment to your lips? But now my lips are actually smooth and I feel so much happier and much more self-confident to be able to apply pretty lipsticks without highlighting my flaws!
Have you got a favourite lip balm at all?
