Chapped lips are so annoying, and for some reason everyone in my family is prone to them. We must have bad genes or something, because our lips are always chapped, cracked and dry.Â It is worse in the winter, but is a problem year round. Many of the products designed for chapped lips just leave your lips feeling waxy and don’t really heal the lips, they just cover up the problem. I recently had the chance to try the Healing Lip Balm from Alchemilla to see if a natural, organic product would work better.
I have tried a number of Alchemilla’s products before, and I use their Face Wash and Moisturizing Cream daily, so I expected to like the Lip Balm. I decided to let my 15 year old, Eleanor, try the product, since she has been very vocal in complaining about her chapped lips lately. The first thing we noticed is that it is not a solid stick, it is more creamy and paste like. It went on smooth, and best of all it lasted. The thing that annoys Eleanor the most is when she has to constantly reapply lip balm. She says at school she frequently has to reapply lip balm every hour! With the Alchemilla Healing Lip Balm she only just has to put it on once and it lasts all day.
The balm is creamy, and can be smoothed on to your lips with a finger.Â Eleanor also liked the fact that it didn’t have a noticeable flavor or taste.Â It is made with organic botanicals, like St John’s Wort and Calendula.Â Like all of Alchemilla’s products it is made in small batches with a great attention to high quality ingredients.Â It is also supposed to help naturally plump the lips, and although Eleanor hasn’t seen much difference yet she is hoping that regular use will have a noticeable result.
Alchemilla has offered to give one of my readers 4 tubes of lip balm, which is enough to last an entire year!
