Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Aid

Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Aid* - £9.18

If you've been reading my blog for a while you will know that I am fanatical about acid exfoliants. Imagine my joy when I discovered that Lanolips make a natural acid exfoliating lip balm! I just had to give it a go. When the colder weather rears it's ugly head the first thing I do is start reaching for the heavy duty lip balms. I get horrendously bad chapped lips so I need something soothing, hydrating & long lasting to sort them out. This stuff fits the bill perfectly. I'd shied away from trying Lanolips products in the past because they always seemed like they would be too thick & sticky but I couldn't have been more wrong. It can take a bit of effort to squeeze the product out but the tube features a new slanted nib so it's really easy to apply. The formula of this lip balm is incredibly slippy & it simply glides onto your lips leaving them feeling buttery soft. There's no stickiness involved whatsoever - something that's always a priority for me when looking for new lip products.

Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Aid combines the super moisturising properties of Lanolips' exclusive Ultra Pure Medical Grade Lanolin with the citric acid found in organic lemon oil. This acid acts as a natural exfoliator on the lips to gently buff away any dry skin present. It works really well & makes my lips feel wonderfully smooth. Lanolips say that you might notice a slight tingling on the lips as it works but it's not something I've experienced. The lemon oil also gives this lip balm the most delicious citrus scent & taste. It's so lovely & fresh! The balm has a slight shimmer to it which is barely noticeable on the lips but definitely adds to the overall glossy appearance. The lanolin in this product is whipped which produces a richer & creamier balm. It feels thick yet light at the same time & absorbs quickly. It's very comfortable to wear and it lasts for hours, even after eating & drinking. I'm guilty of hoarding lip balms in my handbag but this is the one I've been reaching for most often. It's absolutely perfect for this time of year & the tube is totally cute. Plus it contains 97% natural ingredients which is something to consider when you're putting something on your lips. I adore this product and it's actually knocked down NUXE Reve de Miel from the top spot to become my favourite lip balm.

  12. Thank you for the very helpful review, I've been keeping my eye on lip treatment reviews because I am desperately in need of something like this. I've recently ordered a lip exfoliating stick and a new balm which are supposed to work wonders, so I'll give those a go first when they arrive. To be honest, I'd buy this just for the cute name and packaging! xx
