We all have tubes of it dotted around the house, in our bags and coat pockets.
Why do we have so many?
Some of them smell yummy, some really moisturise, some I have bought just for the super cute packaging.
Nothing has ever stood out for me.
I have now discovered the exception to the rule. It ticks all boxes
It smells mouth wateringly good. Which will always entice me to use it.
The ingredients are natural with no nasty chemicals.
The container is a gorgeous pale blue glass that would not look out of place on a dressing table.
Cognito Luxury Lip Balm
They have introduced 5 new Luxury Lip Balms to their range and I was sent some of the flavours to try. I wish there was smellavision, because they are actually making my mouth water. I have always loved coconut so thought coconut macaroon would be my favourite, but the plum crumble has swayed me.
They come in the following flavours
White Chocolate Truffle
Vanilla Ice Cream
Butyrospermum Parkii (shea) butter, Cera Alba (beeswax), Oryza Sativa (rice) Bran oil, Theobroma Cacao (cocoa) Seed Butter, Prunus Armeniaca (apricot) Kernel Oil, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (cranberry) Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Aroma, benzyl alcohol, anise alcohol, benzoate.
No Paraffin or Petroleum derivatives
Apply to lips as often as needed. Excess balm can be massaged into cuticles, hands, elbows, in fact anywhere that has dry skin.
As soon as I looked at the ingredients I knew this was going to be a fabulous balm. I love products with Shea Butter in them. It melts at normal body temperature and is full of vitamins. I had not come across some of the other ingredients before and had to research the benefits of some of the oils included.
I am including an explanation of the oils, in case you are not familiar with them either
Cranberry Seed Oil – It contains one of the highest anti oxidants of all fruit/veg oil. Rich in essential fatty acids (omega 3 and 6) and vitamin A, C, E and K.
Apricot Kernel Oil – It is a great oil for dry skin where it nourishes and protects. Rich in vitamins A, B and E. Calming and soothing
Rice Bran Oil – It has a high sterol content making it invaluable in the fight against free radicals.
I have been applying this luxury lip balm morning and night and can see an improvement in the skin texture.
It leaves a delicate sheen on the lips. It is not greasy at all, so you can pop it on before going out , with no fear of your hair sticking to your lips.
