What on earth is up with this weather?! I seriously don't know if I'm coming or going. One minute it's sunny and warm, the next it's trying to snow and right now it looks so lovely and sunny outside with blue sky but there's such a strong bitter wind. I'm just grateful that it hasn't actually snowed!
Because of this weather my skin is just going crazy due to the coldness, the wind and having to turn the central heating on and off. One of the things which gets most affected is my lips, and I hate, hate, hate cracked, peely lips!
A while ago a purchased some soothing Lip Balms from Elf and they have been a God send with this weather, they're my most go to product and all other Lip Balms like my trusty Carmex has gone out the window!
You can find these Soothing Lip Balms on the Elf website for only £1.50 and they come in three different flavours. I chose Vanilla Creme (top) and Strawberry Creme (bottom) the last one which they do is called Blackberry Creme, the only reason I didn't buy it was because I'm not sure I would have liked the smell. These smell absolutely gorgeous, they're quite strong but the Strawberry Creme smells exactly like Calpol, which for those of you who aren't in the UK it's a liquid medicine for children which is pink and tastes so yummy!
The Lip Balms contain Shea Butter and Vitamins A and E, this is what makes them so moisturising and long lasting. They're not sticky but when you apply them, they do give off a glossy appearance, so they're also perfect for popping in your handbag.
I will be sad when these come to an end especially the Strawberry Creme as I use them everyday and haven't found a Lip Balm that produces as amazing results as these, even my boyfriend who is totally against me wearing any lip products (because he doesn't like it when I kiss him with them on ;)) can't get over how soft these make my lips and are his only exception. So if a make up hating guy like him gives these the seal of approval, then they have to be great , right?!
