Why hello there Dr.Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips, what a playful, cheeky name you have! I knew that I’d be quite fond of you before I had even sampled you.
Dr.Lipp originally started its life journey as being a natural ointment made especially for nursing mothers – the thickness and high moisturising properties of lanolin being a wonderful relief for dry/cracked nipples. It is now highly recognised as also being a fabulous lip balm, if it can work miracles on nipples, why not lips?
My sleek little tube of Dr.Lipp contains one ingredient – raw, 100% pure Medical Grade Lanolin. Yes, lanolin is typically oil/waxes that sheep naturally produce, and I know some people may find this a little icky, but let it be known that is has been through multiple refining processes, so by the time it reaches you it is completely pure and safe for pharmaceutical use.
I personally love this balm – it provides immediate relief to lips and leaves a soft and supple feeling. It has quite a glossy shine which I know many people prefer but I personally like balms to be more matte in appearance. As a night time treatment, this works extremely well. Just slather some on and by morning whatever dryness you had will be long gone.
Dr.Lipp needn’t just be used on lips/nipples; it can also be used –
- On cuticles
- Dry skin patches – elbows, feet, dry knees
- Around the eyes
- Nappy rash
- Wound healing
- Split ends
Fun Fact – Did you know that Lanolin can reduce skin roughness by up to 40% in one hour?
