Dry as the Sahara desert. Something about that hyperbole just doesn’t cut it about how dry my lips have been lately. They feel like a small flame, a lighter perhaps is being flicked across my lips repeatedly.
Having picked up my prescription for the acne cream Duac (Clindamycin + Benzoyl Peroxide) over the weekend (week ending 25 Nov), I proceeded to apply a thin layer to my face every evening. My latest ‘Skin Journey’ post here for reference.
During my beauty sleep *giggles*, it appears the cream has made it’s way onto my lips. Ahh Benzoyl Peroxide. I haven’t used this ingredient in years but vaguely remember the flakes of peeling skin it caused from sections of my face.
I was applying Vaseline, Lucas’ Paw Paw Ointment and Blistex SPF50+ balm, but for some reason my lips screamed for more moisture.
What was I to do? I was desperate.
In a flash, I remembered a product I recently received in a giveaway I won. Thus, the perfect opportunity to trial out this product!
Ingredients & Carmex Says,
- This product comes with a pull off lid and a wind up tube
- No fuss for easy and quick application
- I like that it can’t leak everywhere in my bag or accidentally get squeezed out making the tube all gunky and gross
Watermelon! The scent is amazing, I can’t get enough of it. Yes it tastes good too. There is another, “Mixed Berry” that is available on iHerb.
This really and truly made me rub my lips together. I have never applied such a soft and pleasant product. It feels extremely moisturising and much more smoother, almost like triple milled Vaseline without the chunkyness. 5/5 ★★★★★
More on Colloidal Oatmeal
I have some knowledge people have used oatmeal as a natural remedy to soothe symptoms of Dermatitis, Eczema, Allergic Contact Dermatitis, Psoriasis, dry skin etc by applying to the skin as a thick moisturising vehicle in baths for instance.
It is basically finely milled oats that help sooth itching and relieve dryness.
This instantly relieved my lips. I was so impressed. I applied it consistently for 2 days and my lips had returned to normal.
You can purchase this product on iHerb for AUD$3.12 along with their whole range.
Love your health
