Soft And Kissable Valentines Day Lips With Lypsyl* And A Giveaway - CLOSED

Happy Valentines Day, I hope you've all being thoroughly spoilt by your OH but if you haven't don't fret I love you and I'm sure lots of other people do to, you're amazing and don't let anyone ever tell you otherwise x

If you're lucky enough today then you might be getting a few more kisses than normal, I love a nice kissing session! but sometimes those kisses aren't quite as nice as they should be. Apparently some of the biggest kissing passion killers are bad breath, stubble, and rough, and dry lips. Even if you aren't kissing that special someone today I'm sure that you want lovely, soft lips anyway. Dry, chapped and peeling lips don't look that nice and they can actually be really painful, a no no on Valentines Day or frankly any other day for that matter

Thankfully dry lips are not pretty easy to treat thanks to the copious amounts of lip scrubs, lip balms, lip butter and lip salves on the market. I can't really remember when I first started using lip balm but I think I probably started using it when I was at junior school, and whilst the dates are slightly hazy the brand certainly isn't. Like so many of my classmates, I had a little blue and white, tube of the original Lypsyl in my school bag.

Loyalty when it comes to beauty products as you know isn't my strong point, in fact I've lost count of how many lip balms, salves and butters that I've used over the years, but while lots of brands have came and gone Lypsyl, who were established way, way back in 1891! are still alive and kicking and bigger and better than ever before

I only ever remember their original balm from my childhood but they now offer a range of cute balms in mirrored compacts and a wide range of lip balms in the tradition stick format, using modern formulations and a wide range of good for you, nourishing ingredients

A couple of weeks ago now I was sent two of their newest and fruitiest introductions to try out - Uplifting Strawberry And Pomegranate, and Revitalising Cherry And Almond.

Both balms come in 4g pocket size, easy to twist up sticks and contain an SPF 15 to protect against UVA and UVB rays, they also contain Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, and Beeswax, as well as Aloe Vera to soothe and repair, Vitamin E to prevent the lips from drying out and Avocado Oil to moisturise and repair the skin. These lip balms are dermatologically tested and contain not artificial colours of preservatives.

The one I tried out was the Uplifting Strawberry and Pomegranate. The tube was sealed for hygiene purposes but just a little twist broke the seal, and the ivory coloured balm twisted up with ease.

These are un-tinted balms and the apply clear. This once felt nice and moisturising on the lips and it give them a nice sheen. It wasn't too thick, too white or too sticky and it after a short time it absorbed into the lips leaving them looking and feeling less rough and bitty, even after one use.

Given the name you would expect this one to be super fruity and it is. It has a nice fruity scent with just a hint of tartness and sparkle from the pomegranate. The scent isn't too sweet or sickly, and whilst the taste is pleasant, it isn't moreish enough to make you want to lick it off :)

I was also sent the Revitalising Cherry and Almond version which comes in the same style of packaging and contains the same treatment and nourishing ingredients, only with a cherry almond taste and scent. Now I can cope with a lot of scents and tastes but unfortunately cherry almond, bitter almond, marzipan, Dr Pepper and Cherry Coke are on my no no list. Apparently I ate too much marzipan as a child and it's destroyed me for life. Since I'm not going to get any use out of it then and seeing as it is Valentines Day though I thought that I'd give one of my UK followers a chance to try this one out.
