Dr Organic Lip Balm
Lip balms are really ten a penny – they’re everywhere and the price variation is enormous. Dr Organic Lip Balm isn’t what you could call a glamour product, but it’s a solid, reliable balm that does the job. A blend of shea butter, argan, avocado and almond oils break down that waxy feel that some balms have, but it does contain beeswax so you do get the barrier element as well as softening.
Best of all, Dr Organic Lip Balm has some very interesting scents (or flavours, I can never quite tell) that aren’t the usual bubblegum/strawberry assault. I’m wearing Cherry, and yes, it is that blast-from-the-past Bonne Bell kinda thing, but it doesn’t last further than the initial application so you won’t be tempted to lick it. However, Cherry aside, you can pick from Virgin Olive Oil, Liquorice, Coconut, Ice Mint or Tea Tree.
Personally, I’ve found that these balms are very, very good barrier balms although I don’t find them particularly lip conditioning although they do seem to be softening. If cold or windy weather lies ahead, make sure you have one tucked in your pocket! At £3.49 (Holland & Barrett have a ‘buy one get one half price offer) HERE, they’re a bit of snip.
I will just add in that despite the word ‘organic’ in the title, what you get with these is more in the ‘natural’ scheme of things, with organic elements rather than a purely organic product. I like to think it’s better than throwing a heap of mineral oil at your face.
