My Two Winter Lip Saviours ♥

It is SO cold here in Scotland at the moment, I love this weather because the air is so lovely and crisp and the skies are blue. However it does have a downside, my lips get sore! I have solved my problem though, these two beauties are something you all need to invest in this winter if you haven't already. 
Blistex is something I only ever use every now and again but I have been using it religiously recently to prevent my lips getting cracked. This is a medicated lip balm so it has a lovely cooling/tingly feeling, it also tastes a bit like mint which is really nice. If my lips are sore, I apply this and within about half an hour they are back to normal. This product can also be applied onto cold sores before they develop fully which is great if you get them due to stress or feeling run down.
I bought this Lush lip balm on a whim when I was at the Lush counter, I thought it was only about £1 so when it turned out to be £5.75 I was in shock but I can safely say now it is well worth the money. I have had this tin since July and it is still full. I love the fresh citrus smell of tangerine and mandarin oil from this lip balm. It is made up of beeswax, cocoa butter, shea butter and apricot kernel oil to lock in moisture. If my lips are dry at all, one day of applying this every now and again they are back to normal. I also love applying this balm before I put on lipstick which helps keep them moisturised through the day.
Do you have any lip product recommendations? x
