I’ve been having such trouble with my lips for weeks. The relentless dryness, burning and stinging really started to take its toll on my mood. After countless Google searches for ‘the best lip balms for dry/sore lips’ and whatever other variations I could think of out of desperation, I’d started to despair as nothing seemed to do the trick. I was on the brink of going to the doctor as I’d convinced myself that there must be a deeper issue after finding no relief in any lip balm or product I tried.
Then came what I call the ‘breakthrough’ (thanks mum!). I’d complained to my mum about how sore my lips were and that nothing was helping, when she suggested I try her favourite lip balm; Dr Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Lip Rescue. As this was coming from someone who will literally turn around and go back home for this lip balm if she’s forgotten it, I decided to give it a try.
I started to get irritated when found that the lip balm wasn’t in stock in the Holland and Barrett I travelled to, so I had to settle for a different balm from the brand. Fortunately there was a buy 1 get 1 half price offer on at the time, which softened the blow a bit. I opted for the Manuka Oil and Vitamin E balms…
And boy, what an investment that was. For £6 I had just bought (what I didn’t know at the time were) lip rescue products that will (hopefully!) see me through the winter without enduring any more irritation. For weeks (even months) I’ve been having to layer on different lip balms just to keep the symptoms at bay – which worked at the time – only for them to reappear with a vengeance when I wasn’t wearing any. Dr Organic has helped me to actually function without constantly reaching for a lip balm, and only using it as and when I feel I need to (this isn’t sponsored, I swear!)
Now I’m at an age where ‘listen to your mother’ is not compulsory, but the moral of this story is to LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER. Mums know best, as proven. And if you’re not going to listen to your mother, listen to me: this stuff works. If you’re suffering too then give it a try and I really hope you get the same results!
