Brr...Autumn is in the Air

The second the weather started to get a bit miserable and chilly, my lips started acting up. They're like bold childers - any sign of a bit of damp and they start cracking and complaining. So I'm going to start carrying lip products around in my bag again - I'm just going to have to accept that yes, summer really is over.

From a long drawn out process of trial and error over the years, my recommendations for sore lips are:

Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream

I've said this before, but this stuff is a miracle product. As a lip balm it can't be beaten either - it makes your lips shiny and lovely and soft. Slather a dab on every few hours, especially before you step outside, and you'll be kissable all winter. You can get this in a special lip formula, but the old fashioned original is just as good.


Burts Bees

I swear by a couple of their lip products - the beeswax lip balm and their strawberry lip gloss - which isn't technically a balm, but as it's got so much nice stuff in it, it's as good as.

I often find lip treatments to be ironically, really drying. Once it's worn off, your lips start to feel like someones re-sizing your face around them - not nice. Neither of these promote that horrible tight effect, whereas I find things like Chapstick and Labello often do. I buy them, use them once and go back to my tried and trusteds.
