LOVE YOUR LIPS
Unless you’ve been on the ultimate vacay in the Northern Hemisphere recently (we are so jealous!), you would know that winter has well and truly kicked in Down Under and it seems the dullest season is here to stay for a little while longer (can you tell we're summer people?! Hahahaha!). And along with icy weather, it is kind of inevitable that winter will bring dryness to your skin and lips. Ouchie.
If you’re like us, you probably have a million tubs of Blistex and Carmex lying around and in winter, we bet you’re applying said lip balm way more frequently than usual. Well, this is because unlike our skin, our lips don’t have oil glands, which means in winter, they crack and dry out more easily. Makes sense, huh? Although they’ve been around for a year or two, this winter we love the wonders of lip oil. Some lip balms will temporarily moisturise your lips but they don’t have a long lasting impact, whereas the non-sticky and non-greasy formulas of lip oil ensures the application builds a barrier against dryness. Heaps of lip oils are also tinted, meaning you don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort. It’s a win-win situation!
We’ve rounded up our favourite lip oils across a range of price points for you below. If you’re a lip oil convert or if you try any of the products below, let us know in the comments what you think; we’d loved to hear from you.
