A combination of my love of salt rimmed Margaritas, Mac's super matte Ruby Woo iconic red lipstick and the great British spring (HA!) have left my lips dryer than Gandi's flip flop.
I've been down most avenues, and while Blistex Relief Cream (£2.25 - Superdrug) has been my saviour when I'm heading to the land of ZZzzz's, it's not overly suitable for day time use as its very white. Unless you have the time to really buff it into your lips and have a mirror for the double check I wouldn't risk it.
Blistex Daily Lip conditioner (£2.49 - Boots) gets an honourable mention alongside Burt's Bees Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil (£3.69 - Boots) my absolute 100% go to, recommend it to a friend, shout it from the rooftops product has to be the Molton Brown - Protecting Vitamin Lipsaver.
Now this little tube isn't cheap at £12 a pop, but you get 15ml of product which lasts for absolutely ages and seriously guys, it's the best. This stuff has saved me. I'm tempted to create a small shrine to in in the corner of my room and present daily offerings. I won't though coz that would be weeeeyrd.
It's long lasting, has a real cashmere softness about it and gives lips a subtle sheen but not a full on wet look gloss type shine. My lips have seriously never been so soft and nourished.
I know it's early on and we don't know each other that well yet, but I'm guna lay it down for ya'll. This shit is HG. Full on Holy Grail material.
