As we all know, ’tis the season to have dry skin – and cracked lips. Unfortunately this is a problem for me all year round which just gets worse as the weather gets colder. So I’m constantly on the hunt for the perfect lip balm. I’ve tried so many, but often found the more expensive ones were no better than the cheap high street ones. The most I’ve paid is about £12 / £13 and it was exactly the same as a bog standard chapstick from Boots! I have since discovered and recently tried Dr Lipp which is absolutely fantastic and big favourite among many people, but is on the expensive side. If you haven’t heard of Dr Lipp’s Original Nipple Balm for Lips here is a bit more info –
Dr.Lipp has become a global cult beauty staple for leaving lips smooth and soft with a glossy sheen. An extremely versatile healing and nourishing balm that was originally developed as a nipple balm for breastfeeding women because of its ultra hydrating & hypoallergenic multipurpose properties, Dr.Lipp has many benefits both medical and for beauty and is ideal for dry cuticles, dry skin patches, burns and abrasions, severely chapped lips, sore nipples, split ends, eczema, babies’ bottoms, and much much more.

So it’s basically a magic miracle product with a zillion and one uses! This brought me on to the idea of using nipple cream for sore lips, and reminded me of when I’d just had my son I used a purple tubed nipple cream which was fantastic. I remembered the midwife telling me it made a great lip balm too. So I went and dug it out of the cupboard to give it a go – that product was Lasinoh HPA Lanolin. Here is a bit more info about it –
Lansinoh HPA® Lanolin is the safest, purest nipple cream and completely hypoallergenic. It has been specially developed to help soothe and protect sore, cracked nipples in breastfeeding mothers.100% Lansinoh HPA® Lanolin – the world’s purest Lanolin Nipple Cream.
- No need to remove before breastfeeding.
- Paraben free.
- 100% natural.
- No additives, preservatives or chemicals.
- No taste, colour or smell – the most acceptable nipple cream for your breastfed baby.
Lasinoh is promoted solely as a nipple balm, but if you look at the ingredients Dr Lipp and Lasinoh are both made of 100% lanolin. In essence they are the same product! I’ll now just compare the product size and price for you…
Dr Lipp 15ml tube is £11.40 from Space NK, Lookfantastic and BeautyBay (mine is a 3ml sample pictured)
Lasinoh HPA Lanolin 40ml tube is £6.66 from Amazon or £9.99 from Boots (mine is a 56ml pictured)
Yes a 40ml tube is a bit of a beast to be lugging around but hey you get over 2 and a half times more product than Dr Lipp for a much cheaper price! My Lasinoh tube will last for absolutely ages but I know this is the one I’ll definitely be repurchasing again when it does run out! If you’re looking for an amazing lip balm this winter I’d definitely recommend you give Lasinoh a go!
I hope you enjoyed my post and found it useful 🙂 xx
