Nipple, yes I said nipple.

Thursday, 28 February 2013

You may, or may not, remember me ending a recent blog post on the word Nipple...  Well, here is the explanation; Dr Lipp original nipple balm for lips. 

I can't go anywhere without a lip balm and I use them all year round. You can be sure to find them in my coat pockets, in my handbags, in my car, in my laptop case, and in just about any other place you could possibly put a lip balm. 

This little tube has become my beauty go-to. It was originally designed to sooth the nipples of nursing mothers, hence the name, but it's a real treat for your lips.

This lip balm is rich, and think, and just plain scrumptious. If you like heavy moisture then this is perfect. It's 100% natural and, for those like me, it's hypoallergenic. It doesn't have a colour or any fragrance but gives you a super shine. 

I love mixing it with my favourite lipsticks to give long lasting shine and colour. It helps to prolong my lipstick life and really seals in the moisture. Because there is no colour in the balm it doesn't alter the colour of your lipstick or add sparkle - it keeps your lip colour pure.  

I also love the simple retro packaging and, although the tube is small, it lasts pretty well. I can see why this little secret is a favourite for makeup artists.

You can pick this little beauty up for £11 from Specifics Skins. This is a great site for skincare, makeup and other luxury cosmetics. Currently, if you sign up to their news letter, they are offering you 5% discount.


Pucker Up

Sunday, 11 November 2012

When I was offered an EOS lip balm and hand cream I couldn't say yes fast enough.

I had admired the cute lip balms from-a-far in Korea. I had no idea they were available here in the UK. 
Nor did I know anything about them if I’m to be honest – more a childish fascination with their quirky kinder-egg-esk design. And really, a little delight does come inside every pot.

The EOS lip balm comes in a variety of colours and flavours - and is 97% natural. The little egg contains a ball of tasty lip balm. 

I have been smothering my lips with the sweet mint lip balm. It is deliciously minty. I like it even more because there is no tingle. I am not a fan of lip balm tingle.  It really is sweet like candy. I did find myself licking it off now and then or craving soft mints. It's a good job you get a lot of product for your money.

 As a lip balm it’s pretty damn good – pretty being the operative word. It isn't heavy and soaks into the lips. There was no sticky residue just minty freshness.

EOS also do a few hand creams - in a rather cool pebble design.

The pebble shaped cucumber hand cream was the matching colour to my minty balm - so I've had both in my handbag. The small ergonomic packaging makes it ideal for your bag. The smell was fresh and clean – only to be expected of cucumber scent. The hand cream was very light and not greasy. Personally, I get pretty dry hands and like a richer hand cream especially in the winter - so I did keep applying this one. 

The EOS range can be bought in the UK from Cocktail Cosmetics – a funky independent online cosmetic shop. The website is full of beauty indulgences.

I think I’m definitely going to be stocking up on the EOS lip balms for the mistletoe seasons.. mwah..
