I must have gone through an arsenal of lip balms in my time. However, very few have been re-purchased over the years. Here are my favourites:
\\ Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Aid is a firm and constant favourite and the one I run to when things get bad. This is the best one to keep with you on long flights and during extreme climate conditions. It forgives everything like a priest at confession!
\\ Crabtree & Evelyn's nicely packaged Citron Créme & Honey Lip Butter is an excellent night time treat. I wouldn't use it blindly in the day as it is white and takes some smoothing for it to sink into the lips. However, the reward for my hard work is to wake with smooth lips!
\\ The Japanese company Mentholatum have been around for yonks and their mentholated lip balms are a firm and constant favourite of my Mother-in-law and husband. I started using their Moiscube Lip because I liked the packaging but was soon bowled over by the performance of the product enough for this to be my everyday favourite. Minty fresh defender of smooth lips...I salute you!
