This cold weather has been playing havoc with my lips. I don’t usually suffer too badly with dry lips, just the occasional dryness every now and again, but these past couple of weeks they’ve been so much worse than usual. They’ve been dry, cracked, peeling and really sore, so I’ve been making an extra effort to take care of them. These are the products that I’ve been reaching for every day and it wasn’t until I decided to put this post together that I realised they were all by Weleda! Regular readers will know that I love Weleda and they were actually the brand that made me switch to green beauty – you can read my post about it here if you’re interested.
Weleda Skin Food Lip Balm * – £6.95
This has been sent from the god’s for sore lips. It’s a thin balm consistency that slides on easily and doesn’t pull or tug at the lips. The applicator is great for on the go – you can just pop the lid off, squeeze and swipe. I love that it leaves my lips with an almost glossy finish too, so I can still look like I’ve made an effort even when my lips are really chapped! I have used the orginal Skin Food on my lips before, but it’s pretty thick and doesn’t sink in too well, so this is a perfect alternative. It’s a great addition to the Skin Food family and this has become my favourite lip balm now. I’ll definitely be repurchaing this!
Weleda Everon Lip Balm * – £4.95
I keep this by my bedside and use it before I go to bed. This one is a solid lip balm, so it doesn’t go on as smoothly as the Skin Food Lip Balm. I don’t mind that for night though, as I don’t like to go to bed with my lips wet and sticky with product. This sits nicely on the lips and is more of a traditional balm texture, but it does drag on application so not the best if your lips are really badly chapped. I like to wear this around the house and re-apply several times throughout the day.
Weleda Tinted Lip Balm in Berry Red * – £6.95
I reach for this when I want a little colour on my lips. I usually like to wear lipstick at the weekend, but because my lips have been super sore I’ve had to lay off them for the last couple of weeks. However, I still want some colour to my lips which is where the Berry Red Lip Balm fits in. It gives a lovely, subtle wash of colour whilst also nourishing the lips. It’s really comfortable to wear and as it’s a liquid consistency goes on really well. The colour does wear off pretty fast but it doesn’t take much to apply another layer.
Unfortunately the Skin Food and the Everon are not suitable for vegans as they include beeswax, but the Tinted Lip Balm is suitable for vegans.
The combination of these 3 lip balms has really helped my lips over the past couple of weeks and they’re feeling much better now. Lip balm is something that I don’t always remember to put on, but when the products are this nice I find myself remembering more often! If you suffer with chapped lips I’d recommend having a look at these and trying some out. And if you have dry skin I’d also recommend you check out Weleda’s new Skin Food range. They’ve added in a Skin Food Light and a Skin Food Body Butter to go with the Lip Balm. I can’t wait to get my hands on the Body Butter!
