So i had a long word with myself, and decided i need to get out of this bad patch of crappiness and get motivated again, moping and feeling bad for myself isn't good for me and i know i need to keep my mind occupied with good things to feel better. So i feel like attempting Blogmas is way to help me, i feel like I'll feel 10x better after i blog more. So here's my official first post, having a personal one starting December off i thought I'd get things cracking now! I probably won't post every day but it won't hurt in missing a few days!
(Please excuse the poor lighting, i chose to take photos way too late..)
Winter. You have been awful to me so far, lip and skin wise. Finding myself with horribly chapped lips causing my habit of picking my lips, bad bad idea. I hate that I have this habit, it's hard not to though. A huge outburst of cold-sores have landed on my bottom lip, even under my lip, how glamorous. So I've really needed some help trying to tame the beasts that live on my lip, such painful things too :(.
I've been applying Cymex cream to them to help calm the soreness down and hopefully help shrink it until it's finally disappeared (hopefully anyway). It definitely is a must have for me, it helps to soften the hard cracks and you literally only need the tiniest dab of cream on the end of your finger to fully cover the sore cuts or sores on your lips.
To keep moisture to my lips, I've been using the same brand of lip balms for years. Lypsyl give such great moisture without it feeling to sticky on your lips, plus that lovely smell of cherry keeping my lips tasting and feeling sweeter. I'm a sucker for cherry products, no idea why.
Of course, Maybellines Baby Lips that everyone has raved about is also something i have kept on my daily lip wear, as it's a nice moisture to my lips also and it gives that sheen effect that some lip balms don't do. I don't see why people swatch these products as they show next to no pigment but that isn't a problem for me at all.
For my last product is something I've only recently bought but learned to love which is a Lush Lip Scrub in the flavour Bubblegum, for it's crazy price of £5.50 (that's a lot for me considering it's a lip product). It's a great scrub to use on my lips to get rid of any dead skin or rougher, more chapped parts of my lips. Plus it tastes so sweet, sometimes too sweet but it's never a problem to me!
I'm so glad i've started Blogmas, i feel so much better already. That's just what blogging does for me, and i hope i can keep this up.
What are your favourite lip balms? And your must haves for lip care?
