I ordered the This Works : Super Lips lip balm online in the post Christmas Boots.com sale and I was initially very disappointed as I was expecting a twist up tube rather than a bland white pot. This little unassuming pot had been ditched forlornly in the bottom of my hand bag getting no love. After a few weeks it migrated on to my dressing table and boy am I glad it did!
After a few applications I came to realise how wonderful this balm is. It’s a natural based product with a lovely classic smell of roses (to me anyway!). It goes on clear and lightly providing maximum moisturisation without any of that horrible overpowering grease.
Look after your lips this winter with this exotic blend of Monoi oil, Rose Oil and Cocoa butter. This nourishing preservative-free balm has been designed to melt at body temperature so it is easily absorbed into the skin. With a rich formula packed with the earth’s most moisturising ingredients, super lips hydrates, soothes and protects the skin
I apply this balm to my lips as soon as I wake up in the morning while im getting ready and by the time it comes to lipsticks, my lips are plumped and perfect ready for the day ahead, and also again at night just before bed for an undisturbed lip treat. The sticker on the back of the tub says you can use it everywhere, so I have been working it in to cuticles, dry patches on my elbows and more recently in to the insanely dry patches on skin on my face which were a result of Panoxyl use. I also put a light dab of it on top of my foundation over the same areas for a quick top up of moisture. It is also great for keeping eyebrows in place too as opposed to a setting brow gel.
As I’ve already told you all, I have super sensitive skin and my face hasn’t felt overloaded or clogged up since using it. Admittedly it might not be as nourishing as a proper moisturiser but for a quick on the spot fix it certainly eases the discomfort of tight dry flaky skin.
For what I thought was a duff purchase, I am so super pleased I have kept using it and discovered my love for the little white pot of lovelyness!!
I also have to admit… I probably shouldn’t but… my boy kitten had quite a bad scratch on his nose (gee thanks girl kitten!) and it scabbed over. He kept rubbing his nose along the carpet or wall to scratch it so I kept dabbing on a little bit of this lip balm on top of the scab to keep his cute little nose soft and he loved it. It stopped the scabby itching while his poor shnoz was healing! The slightest film of this worked a treat!
I believe I paid £4.50 for it in the half price sale… I am unsure if I would pay £9 for another tub… but I will get back to you on that once this tub has run out! Whilst trying to find a link to this product on the This Works website it seems as though they no longer sell it individually but it is still available HERE in this gift set. It is also only £6.95 for the set currently on www.asos.com
