I'm no longer in the flush of youth, and neither are my lips. At 35, my lips are dry and not as unlined as they used to be. I'm constantly on the hunt for lip products to condition them.
I first read about Lanolips products in this post on the excellent www.lipglossiping.com. When one of my favourite Australian bloggers, www.dempeaux.com posted about it here, my interest was again nudged, and Dempeaux very kindly offered to pick me up a gift pack containing the 101 clear ointment and two tinted lip balms.
I'm loving this stuff. The 101 colourless ointment (100% pure lanolin) is as good as my Sisley lip balm, and it doesn't have the odd medicinal smell that lanolin products sometimes do. My favourite product from the gift pack is the Lip Ointment with Colour in Apples, a slightly pinkish red that gives me a healthy looking lip, as pictured below:
If you don't have a friendly Aussie available, www.adorebeauty.com.au stocks the line and ships internationally (I've ordered Invisible Zinc sunscreen from here many times in the past.) The Lip Ointment with Colour is Aus$13.95 for 12.5ml.
