The Best Lip Balms Ever?

Hey everyone! I just wanted to do a quick post on what I now class as THE best lip balms ever. A couple of weeks ago my lips went crazy, they were so dry, tight and flakey and just looked awful and felt really uncomfortable. I think I must of had an allergic reaction to some sort of lip product as I have never had this sort of thing before. I must have tried every single lip product I owned, trying to soothe my poor lips but nothing would work, they just felt worse.

After spending hours on the internet trying to find out anything I could on repairing my lips I came across quite a few people talking about these two lip balms that helped them when they suffered from allergic reactions. Their symptoms sounded just like mine and I finally thought I was onto something. The two products they recommend were La Roche-Posay Ceralip and L'Occitane Lip balm. They are quite pricey for what they are but I was literally prepared to try anything at this point.

So I tried La Roche-Posay Ceralip first which is described as a lip repair cream and is almost like a treatment. This stuff goes a long way so it looks like it will last you for quite a while. It is also quite thick and when applied it leaves a nice sheen to your lips. As soon as I applied this to my lips, they instantly felt better. It was really soothing and I could already feel that my lips weren't so tight. After using this for about a week, I knew they had already improved but weren't completely back to normal. I then decided to try out the next product which was the L'Occitane Lip balm.

This product is just amazing! I included it in my monthly favourites because I have been using it that much. After using the lip treatment my lips had improved but were still pretty dry and flakey. This totally cleared that up. Again, its quite a thick lip balm and a small bit goes a long way. Its super hydrating and lasts on my lips for a good three hours before I need to reapply. I honestly don't think I could live without this anymore, I love it that much. I also like the fact that its not greasy or anything but still leaves a nice shine on the lips, it makes it a little more interesting and easy to wear alone without any lipsticks.

These two lip products combined, literally transformed my lips and I highly recommend them. I now use L'Occiatane lip balm throughout the day and La Roche-Posay Ceralip every night. If any of you are suffering with very dry, chapped lips or have had any sort of allergic reaction then you should definitely give these a try. :)
