Dr Lipp - nipple balm for lips

I've tried some random treatments in the name of blog research. I've given some bizarre products a whirl for the good of my readers. I'm used to stepping outside of the box, but even for me using nipple balm as a lip product is a step over the edge. Whoever discovered that Dr Lipp's original nipple cream was also a perfect hydrating treatment for lips was both a little strange and an absolute genius. Dr Lipp's original balm is 100% natural and made from the oils and waxes sheep naturally produce to protect their fleece. They're scientifically known to be the most similar to our own human skin oils and for centuries have helped to protect and soften our skin - so the science is telling me it's ok to use this on my pout!



Not only is the formula perfectly compatible with our skin, but it also acts as a barrier to prevent any moisture escaping or bacteria entering. It's so good for skin it's even medically recommended for people with eczema and helps heal burns, abrasions and minor incisions. The formula is really thick and waxy, comparible to Elizabeth Arden 8hr Cream, so you need a really little amount to apply to lips. It comes out of the tube quite like a pellet, so using your fingers to warm and applying in circular motions helps to dispurse it around the lip area. It is incredibly hydrating and comfortable, as well as being pretty long lasting. I also love the fact you can use it on dry patches of skin - it's perfect for elbows, cuticles or even sore noses after a cold. I may have been a cynic to start with, but I'm totally sold on nipple balm.... For everything but nipples.

Available online priced £11 for a 15ml tube

  1. Might have to give this a try :) I have really bad dry lips & have tried so many lip balms. I'm currently using the vitamin E lip balm from the body shop. Xo

  2. Wait til you have a baby! I have used it for years and when I had a baby it was the only thing I used, it works so well. I have to say it was a bit odd using it on my lips at the same time, but at that point I had lost all sense of dignity! It really works and that was all I cared about

  4. The Lanolips range is a good alternative, their original 101 ointment is around the same price but they do hand creams, body oil and balms and tinted lip ointments too! Or a tube of Lansinoh Lanolin Nipple Cream (56g) is much better value for essentially the same product. All available from Boots.
