Beauty | Winter Lip Savers

 

Rose & Co' Salve in Sweet Vanilla  //  Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine 
 
As the cold weather is truly setting in, there comes the inevitable problem of dry lips. Unfortunately, this has always been something I've suffered from all year round (sensitive skin) But as long as I keep them moisturised with a good quality lip balm, it’s not so much of a problem. I’ll be totally honest here though and say I really didn't like either of these two when I first bought them. I got the Korres first and was so disappointed that after waiting such a long time to purchase this, it really didn’t live up to my expectations. It does look quite pigmented here and in photos I've seen online, but when it's on the lips it doesn't really have any colour. As it's a lip butter, I found, as I do with most of these kind, it really highlighted any dry areas on my lips, making them look so much worse. And the Rose & Co Lip Salve, not much better.. on its own at least. I did like this one slightly more, much like the name suggests, it does have a lovely sweet vanilla scent and also has the added benefit of being multi use -unruly eyebrows- cuticles- dry skin etc'. However all it seemed to do was gloss over my dry lips without really moisturising. (Think Vaseline, just sitting on the lips, but not really doing much.) While one was lying around not being used, the other I was trying my best to persevere with. And you know I actually don’t remember what made me think to put the two together, but am I glad I did. As long as I use both together every night without fail, by morning my lips are soft and smooth, which then also has the added benefit of making my lipstick go on like a dream. I apply the Korres first and then the Rose and Co’ and go to sleep with no more worries of dry lips.

The Korres Lip Butter is available on Asos
The Rose and Co’ Salve is on Amazon, which is where I purchased mine.
I can’t say that this combination will work for everyone, as I know we all have different skin types but I hope you find something that works just as well for you as these do for me. I also know people really love these two products on there own too, but this is just what personally works best for me. And it goes to show if something doesn’t work too well on it’s own, it might just be worth pairing it with something else!
 
Do you have any favourite lip balms ? Have you used any of these two before ?

    1. They have some really lovely colours too! ..x

      They're darker, so would probably show up more on the lips as the one I have is really light.

  4. I normally use a bit of organic balm/butter such as shea butter or unrefined coconut oil as I have so much of it at home already. These both sound good though, loving the Korres packaging xx
