Organic surge million dollar anywhere balm
Starting with the Organic Surge million dollar anywhere balm. This was a lifesaver for my nose, which was left feeling dry and irritated after a winter cold. It comes as a solid balm, but melts on contact with body heat to become a light scented oil.
On application, it immediately soothed my poor irritated nose, and by the end of the next day, the majority of redness was gone. It contains cocoa and shea butter, so is intensively hydrating, yet still feels surprisingly light on my skin. I now use it on any dry patches of skin, and well as on my cuticles. Oh, and did I mention Million dollar anywhere balm smells exactly like a bowl of lemon sherbet!
Another hero product is Lanolips 101 ointment. To me this is like a thicker, better quality version of Vaseline. What sets Lanolips apart though, it that is uses only 100% pure medical grade Lanolin (a waxy substance that comes from sheep's wool).
I would never have thought to use Lanolin as a moisturiser, but after a quick bit of research it seems to be widely used in the cosmetics industry. I'm assured that Lanolips is vegetarian and most importantly animal cruelty free. Since using Lanolips, I've noticed a real difference in the condition of my lips, and I'd go so far as to say this is one of my favourite lipbalms. It also works well as a cuticle balm, as well as on any areas of dry, cracked skin.
