Autumn / Winter is usually a time to wrap up warm in layers although I think of it as the time of year when taking care of and nourishing the body from the inside out is essential. This isn't just for the physical health benefits but also for our mental wellbeing too, there's something about feeling well groomed and moisturised in the harsh winter weather that lifts the spirits and makes you feel loved. I do love to take care of my lips especially as they are one of the parts of the body most used and exposed to the elements.
These are a small selection of lip products that I am currently loving and can be found in my bag regularly.
- Korres Guava Lip Balm ; This is my favourite lip balm at the moment, I love that the ingredients are clean with minimal to no nasties and also how moisturising it is on the lips. The smell of guava evokes thoughts of transporting you to tropical lands which is great when you are in the middle of winter.
- Lily Lolo Natural Lipstick in "Nude Allure" I love love love this lipstick not only is it from a brand that produces mineral makeup, it is quite clean ingredient wise. It is very moisturising and although it is unscented it contains moisturising ingredients like vitamin E and Jojoba oil, I think it is the perfect flattering nude shade and lasts on the lips a while.
- Lily Lolo Natural Lipstick in "Rose Gold" with the current trend toward rose gold everything, it was only a matter of time before it would appear in cosmetics. As with the other shade I love this as well as it is another nude shade albeit with a slight shimmer which is very subtle. I am quite happy with both shades as to be honest I am not a big lipstick wearer and they both look natural and are very moisturising which is a huge bonus in keeping the lips conditioned in this harsh weather.
