3 Top Natural Lip Salves
It’s finally starting to get wintery and the cosy warm clothes have been dug out of the back of my wardrobe. The bad news: we’re now officially in dry lips season. My poor lips really suffer during these months and even though they are dry all year round, they are completely horrible at winter. In preparation, I have been on the look out for some balms and salves that can rescue my lips whilst also adding a lovely red hue – wearable for any day of the week whether you are at school or work.
Hurraw! Black Cherry Tinted Lip Balm
This is my new favourite lip balm EVER! I have been searching high and low for something to replace my none-natural high-street bought Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Dark Chocolate & Peppermint Lip Butter. I didn’t know if it was at all possible as I had been very faithful to Palmer’s lip butter for a few years (it was the only thing that actually relieved my chapped lips) – but I have finally stumbled upon this super yummy natural lip balm.
This balm is organic and cold-pressed. The ingredients list is short and sweet including; alkanet infused sweet almond oil (alkanet is used as a natural red dye and is also said to be an anti-inflammatory and anti-septic), candelilia wax, coconut oil, jojoba seed oil, cocoa seed butter, olive fruit oil, organic flavours and vitamin E.
It truly smells and feels lush. Just a tiny swipe on the lips and it provides instant relief! I now use this everyday and under all other lipsticks and lipgloss.
Balance Me Shine On Tinted Lip Salve – Sheer Raspberry
This balm was a whim purchase decision, and I was very surprised at the awesomeness of this salve. It has a nice lemony smell as it contains grapefruit, and lemon, as well as rosemary, rosehip, mango seed butter, coconut oil, sweet almond oil and jojoba oil. It is incredibly hydrating and gives a very delicate glossy sheer red colour.
As it’s 100% natural this has made it’s way back onto my shopping list for re-purchase!
Madara Moonkissed Rose Tinting Lipgloss
I have been using Madara tinting fluid as my sheer foundation since I stopped using conventional make-up but I don’t know why it took me this long to try their other natural products. This lipgloss came with the tinting fluid as a package, and it worked out much cheaper than buying them separately. It is a very nice shiny gloss but very moisturising and not sticky at all. Unlike the other two balms above, it has a nice shimmer to it and has a pretty peachy-pink tone which is less sheer when worn. As it does say on the packaging it looks “like a glistening rose hip blossom in the moonlight” 🙂
If you’re looking for a salve or balm for the winter, then I highly recommend the above. All three are so pleasant to wear, all-natural and give a subtle colour to the lips – and all thoroughly dry-lips tested!
