My lips are currently loving Lanolips (almost a tongue-twister…)

The multi award-winning cosmetics brand sent me the Lip Ointment with Colour SPF 15 (£8.16) product to try – I like to think of myself as somewhat of a chapstick connoisseur, as I always have several on the go at my desk/ in my bag/ by my bed so over the years must’ve tried dozens of brands – and Lanolips is good.

It’s dubbed the purest lip care on earth due to the 100% natural ingredients, or rather ‘ingredient’ as there’s pretty much only one: lanolin.  Featured in all products, this stuff is the real deal; used to heal wounds and in hospitals, Lanolips is the first and only 100% ULTRA Medical Grade beauty product.  Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Carmex

Lanolin is a natural product extracted from the wool fleece of shorn sheep and is able to hold 200% of its weight in water, making it the ultimate natural moisturiser. It’s also hypoallergenic, without additives, colourless, odourless, impurity cleaned and specially refined to a creamy state.  The fancy refining process leaves it the best quality possible and costs 14 times more than basic lanolin to produce.

The Lip Ointment also includes sweet almond oil, shea butter, beeswax, Vitamin E and SPF 15 to hydrate and protect dry skin and lips with a glossy, non-sticky coverage.  Available in Rhubarb, Rose, Apples, Sunshine and Dark Honey.
