Kiss Me

A kiss can say a thousand words but those words should not be "eww, chapped lips!" Spending a lot of time outside training does inevitably lead to dry, cracked lips. This doesn't make for a pretty picture. I've put a few of my faves together to ensure you remain kissable even after those long  work outs!

Note- this post applies to boys too because no one, repeat no one, likes to kiss dry lips!!

Is not a kiss the very autograph of love?"

The Moisturiser- Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment
Mmm the sugary, sweet smell of this lip balm is delicious. As the name suggests it is a blend of sugars,  which is a natural humectant (moisture-locking) and oils and waxes. It hydrates and nourishes the lips. It is full of antioxidants and vitamins to protect as well as moisturise..

The Luxurious- Creme de la Mer The Lip Balm

A sweet and minty taste, this balm is a lesson of its own in decadence. There's no two ways around it, it is super pricey and if I hadn't been given this as a gift I doubt I'd have ever bought it. It is amazing though- it lasts a long time and is very moisturising. It stops cracking and flaking almost instantly and leaves lips feeling super soft.

The Protector- Eve Lom Kiss Mix

The zinc oxide (main ingredient in sunscreen) protects lips and gives them a nice shine. It has a cool menthol toothpastey taste which is refreshing and leaves a cool feeling on lips. The only thing I don't like is that the tub is tiny so getting fingers in when you're reaching the end is tricky. However, it is a great barrier to strong winds and is sure to protect lips and leave them feeling soft and as the name suggests- very kissable.

The Economical- Carmex Lip Balm

The squeeze tube glides over lips for the easiest of applications. The menthol/ camphor combination is the same as that used in Vicks Vapour Rub, its that menthol-y cinnamon smell that is oh-so familiar. The combination of lots of moisturisation, velvety feel and strangely addictive tingly feeling makes for a great lip balm.

The Restorer- Clinique Repairwear Intensive Lip Treatment

Super soft and sheer, this lip balm is divine. It is gel based so it doesn't feel sticky or tacky. It helps to reduce the apperance of lines and wrinkles around the lips too. The stick is so easy to use and it feels so silky smooth. As with all Clinique products, its fragrance free. It gives lips a very sheer natural looking shine which looks healthy on men and women.
