I received a sample of Dr Lipp’s Original Nipple Balm For Lips, in it’s cool little charcoal coloured tube with a striking thin pink square on the front, and it’s retro style black and white writing. The striking packaging was the first thing I noticed, and I had already visualised it on my make-up dressing table; the design would fit right in with the rest of my favourite products! But when I read the title of the product, I must say I became rather dubious to say the very least. I thought, “Nipple balm? For the lips? Are you serious?”
Intrigued, I decided to read more about the product on the back of the packaging. Here’s what was written:
“Discover the secret passed from nursing mothers to Make-up Artists. A long lasting sexy lip gloss and SOS balm for dry skin, lips, nipples, cuticles and feet etc. 100% natural, rich, odourless, hypoallergenic and ultra effective. Loved by London’s Make-Up Artists… soo kissable!”
I then looked at the ingredients. It is made from 100% ultra pure medical grade Lanolin, and harvested during the summer from natural Sheep’s wool. It is also cleansed of all impurities and is approved by Ecocert France.
Reassured, I unscrewed the cap and squeezed some of the unique balm out and onto my finger. It reminded me of the Eight Hour Cream by Elizabeth Arden, but better. It is clear in colour, doesn’t have too much of a scent and is not as thick as the Eight Hour Cream, perfect!
When the balm was applied it slid easily onto the lips; leaving a smooth, protective, moisturising layer. The good thing about this balm is the fact that it isn’t really sticky, like other brands. (When my lips become really sticky they annoyingly attract hair strands from both sides of my face that stick to the lips like glue! It’s not a good look, trust me! So it is crucial to me, with my long , thick hair, that I use lip balms that aren’t sticky at all.)
Looking in the mirror my lips appear plump, smooth and glossy, I am very happy with the results. Two hours, one drink, and a bowl of cereal later my lips still have a lovely sheen, if not quite so glossy as immediately after application. I am in love with this product!
Dr Lipp’s Original Nipple Balm For Lips luckily doesn’t have a taste, (I hate synthetic lip balm tastes). Therefore, I find it incredibly pleasant using this unique product; and not only that, but over a few weeks the condition of my lips improved considerably. Bonus!
The other good thing about the balm is that if you accidentally squeeze out too much balm for your lips; you can use the remainder for other uses.
Here’s a handy list of possible uses:
- Soothing and smoothing fine lines under the eyes
- Any dry or itchy skin patches including:-Eczema and psoriasis
- dry cuticles
- feet & elbows
- dry knees
- Split ends
- Diaper rash
- Wound healing
- Burns and abrasions
- As an intensive moisturizing night mask
I have also used the balm for some dry skin patches on my knees and wow, I’m impressed!
The Telegraph, Daily Mail and GQ have voted Dr Lipp’s Original Nipple Balm as in their Top 3 lipbalms!
On the Dr Lipp site they state how their Original Nipple Balm is medically proven. Here’s what they say;
Dr Lipp is…..
Dr.Lipp is proven to reduce skin roughness by up to 40% in one hour!
Biocompatibility – the oils and waxes in Lanolin are so similar to our own skin’s natural oils which is what makes it so compatible and agreeble with our skin.
Hydration – Because the complex combination of lipids in Lanolin is so similar to our own lipids found in the epidermis they are readily accepted and absorbed by our skin thereby replenishing our own intercellular lipids giving us back beautiful, supple and healthy skin.
Barrier Repair – At the same time the Lanolin acts as a barrier, protecting moisture from leaving the skin yet still allowing it to breathe. So by supplementing our lipid bilayers it naturally reinforces our skin barrier function in the most natural way possible.
Dr.Lipp is considered by dermatologists and scientists to be one of the safest and most effective products to care for your skin. Medical grade Lanolin has led the way in skincare for centuries, simple in principle but impossible to reproduce synthetically.
- Clinically Proven and hypoallergenic
- Medically recommended for people with Eczema
- Dr.Lipp is bacteriostatic and repels new bacteria from entering your skin.
- Helps heal even burns, abrasions & minor incisions.
Clinical tests have proven that our Lanolin allergy rates are impressively less than 0.0006%, which makes Dr.Lipp one of the safest products on the market today.
