For some reason, I’ve always been a little bit skewed against lanolin in products; at the recesses of my brain I seem to think there was a fad that it was bad. However, I’ll admit to a 360 degree turn around now I’ve discovered Lanolips. Using ultra medical grade lanolin – the purest form possible – this Aussie brand is truly a balm among balms. It reminded me on application immediately of Bobbi Brown lip glosses, only slightly softer. The tints are perfect for me because I love to keep lips neutral but with a little oomph – Lanolips ticks that box.

Lanolin is a by-product of the wool industry; taken from wool shearings (so no sheep are harmed as this is an annual process); lanolin is close in make up to our own natural skin oils and can hold up to 200 times its own weight in water. Regardless of these lanolin facts, what can’t be disputed is that these are very, very lovely balms and have gone straight into my make up box as a new favourite.

You have to order it currently from Oz but its worth the effort. www.adorebeauty.com.au – it works out at around £9.47…
