Lanolips Face Base
[productsample/affiliate] It was only a matter of time before Lanolips went to the face. There are two new (ish) products – The Aussie Flyer, a leave on recovery mask and Vitamin E Cream which is self explanatory.
If you’re just back from holiday and your skin is rebelling at the turning temperatures, these are for you. Vitamin E Cream is instantly gratifying on dry or taut skin – it’s not heavy but neither is it so light that the effect is minimal. It’s almost like a barrier cream with none of the associated weight so you can use it on your face without looking oily or greasy. The formula isn’t complicated, which I like – it’s mainly a blend of lanolin combined with vitamin E, glycerin, shea and colloidal oatmeal but it does have a (natural) fragrance to it that reminds me of an old-style cold cream. It’s going to reliably do the things you hope it will, protect, moisturise and breathe new life into dry complexions. At £20, I think it’s very reasonable.
The Aussie Flyer is the thing that I’d want to put on my face to revive my skin after a day outdoors – if you’re a cyclist or runner, it’s the antidote to the weather beating that your skin can take. I used it on the backs of my hands as well because I’ve been a bit neglectful in applying SPF (although this was supposed to be the year that I put SPF on my hands as a matter of course as well as my face) and it’s very good at bringing the skin back to life in terms of smoothing. I see a legitimate use for both in practical terms – if you like your skin care to be no nonsense and thoroughly reliable, you’ll want them in your beauty stash. You can find both The Aussie Flyer and Vitamin E Cream (both £20 each) HERE.
