Dr Lipp’s Original Nipple Balm For Lips! My Most Unusual Beauty Addiction…

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:

Dr Bronner's Magic 18-In-1 Liquid Soaps!

As an environmentally-aware-beauty-addict, I am always psyched to hear about a company that delivers top-quality products that are ethical, and also environmentally friendly.

The company Dr Bronner is dedicated to the preservation of this planet, and to the protection of the animals on it. It goes without saying therefore, that none of their products have been tested on animals! They are also completely fair trade, which is just, so awesome! Why can’t more companies be like this?

Marie Claire May Edition Comes With Free Ciate Polish!

Ciate nail varnish in ‘Pocket Money’ (shade 107),  is my perfect shade of polish, and I’m elated that I have finally found it! I have been endlessly searching for a colour that I can wear with any outfit as a staple varnish for daily use. I’m tired of having to change my nail colour every time I change an outfit. Especially as I am a lover of bright colours, which tend to clash with every other colour but itself. So it became a daily routine to put a new colour on each morning!

Wild Rose Beauty Balm by Neal's Yard Remedies £37.00

The Wild Rose Beauty Balm has become some-what of a cult favourite, and I can understand why! The moment I opened the cobalt blue jar containing 50g’s of pure rosy goodness, I was in love! The smell of roses is so delicious, it is reminiscent of a typical English garden, full of blossoming flowers. To me, this product is England, in a jar! It glides onto the skin with such ease, and nourishes, as you massage it into the skin. Only a small amount is needed, so the jar lasts a long time. It also comes with a free organic muslin cloth to enable you to try the various suggested uses. The balm is suitable for all skin types, and it has been dermatologically tested. It’s so versatile,  I’m loving finding new uses for it every day! The organic wild rosehip seed oil is one of the richest natural sources of vitamins, including A, B1 and B2. These are essential nutrients, antioxidants and essential fatty acids, which we need to maintain healthy skin.

Sudocrem, The Secret A List Beauty Buy!

Honestly, the very same cream that is used on the bottoms of babies’ around the country! Yes, and I will admit that I too use Sudocrem on a daily basis, and I LOVE it! I’m in good company too! Kimberly Walsh, from Girls Aloud, also admitted to being a fellow Sudocrem fan, she said: “Cheryl and I put Sudocrem on our spots before bed, so we’ve shared that beauty tip with the rest of the group.” Cheryl Cole later confirmed this by saying, ‘It really works!‘ Even in the US, the 90210 actress Jessica Lowndes said, ‘Using it is the best beauty tip ever. It’s amazing!’ There was even a whole scene on The Only Way Is Essex, where the advantages of Sudocrem were discussed at length, so to help ‘Diags’ ,a man from the show, who suffers from severe acne. Lauren Pope from the same show said, ‘It makes a great overnight mask!’

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream… How Have I missed this Gem?

Whilst reading magazines, so many celebrities talk about their love of Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream, it has become something of a ‘Cult Classic Product’ . I always used to think I must try it. However, one day while watching a friend using it I saw the colour of the cream as it came out of the tube, (it’s a shade of apricot at first, then appears clear once applied), I was completely put off.
