LipGlam Lip Balm

I am now on my second tube of #LipGlam so it is fair to say I am a huge fan.  I first came across it in a November Birchbox beauty box and having used it a few times, could no longer find it, so I was glad to have the opportunity try it out all over again, when the option to choose it appeared in the March You Beauty Discovery Box


#LipGlam uses 100% pure lanolin and it is marketed as being the ultimate multipurpose moisturiser that not only acts as an amazing lip balm, it can also be used to prime, banish dry patches, treat cuticles, smooth split ends and set brows in place. Obviously it is first and foremost for me a lipbalm, a job it does incredibly well and it has been a god send in the current changing climate.

Described as follows "The silky balm is formulated from medical grade, ultra pure lanolin, which is a natural emollient derived from sheep’s wool that absorbs 300% of its weight in water and hydrates from beneath the skin’s surface giving long-lasting, moisturisation with results lasting up to 8 hours. One of nature’s finest oils, it holds moisture in the skin for deep, long-lasting hydration".

Arriving in a tube, the balm itself is often quite hard, so you need to warm it between the palms of your hand to loosen up and release some of the balm, this is an issue I hope the makers of Lipglam will soon address because I find it quite annoying, that said once you do have the balm on your index finger, it melts slightly using your body's natural heat to be able to use.

It is Paraben-free, hypoallergenic and dematologically tested as well as being 100% fragrance and colour free, the balm is made of a rich formula which is similar to the texture of Dr Lipp Nipple Balm. Once on the lips, it creates a barrier to help lock in moisture and it works brilliantly as a base before applying lipstick, helping the lipstick to glide across the lips, masking any dry skin that hasn't been exfoliated and it really does help keep your lipstick in place much longer.

As a reminder, LipGlam can be used as a:
  • daily lip balm
  • cuticle ointment
  • split ends smoother
  • lipstick and mascara primer
  • eyebrow balm
  • dry skin reliever (on elbows, knees and knuckles)
  • soother for chafing and rashes
This is a great lipbalm, it more than definitely does what it states it will do and whilst I am yet to try it for every purpose given on the list above, my current favourite use for it, is as a primer for lipstick. I keep this one in my desk drawer at work in my emergency kit and it is just so useful to have around. You can buy #LipGlam on the LipGlam website for £9.99

Have you tried or heard of #LipGlam? Will you be trying it?
