Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips review

If you follow me on Twitter (and if you don't, why not!?), you may have seen my tweet talking about how the next few posts will be taking a look at some winter essentials. So to start off, I'm going to discuss something that you may have heard of already: the Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips.

If you've never heard of this product before then you may be wondering why on earth this product name contains the word nipple, but I'll explain. Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips was originally created for nursing mothers to use on cracked and dry nipples. However, it soon caught on as having plenty of other uses to help soothe sore and dry areas all over the body, including the lips. 

It contains one wonder ingredient: medical grade lanolin. Lanolin, which is like a wax that is secreted from wool-baring animals, is fantastic to use on dry skin. There are other uses for this product as well though, so that makes it a great multitasker. As well as on lips (or nipples), the Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips can be used on nails/dry cuticles, sunburn and sore patches on the body, or even in your makeup routine for glossy eyelids, as a highlighter or on the eyebrows. 

It comes packaged in a small, dark, shimmering grey tube that holds 15ml of product with a silver screw cap lid. This tube then comes packaged in a white, illustrated box.

Application and Results:

On first use you are likely to find that it is incredibly thick so can be hard to squeeze out of the tube initially. I do find that dispensing it becomes easier the more you use it though, and you only need a really small amount.

Even though it is thick, it melts onto the lips with ease and leaves a gloss finish (but you can apply slightly less or more to suit the level of glossiness that you want).

Straight away after the first use you can see and feel a noticeable difference. Lips feel so much less dry or sore, instead feeling softer and more comfortable. After a few applications skin is already way on its way to recovering. 

As well as on the lips, I tried this balm as a cuticle balm and also on a dry patch of skin on my hand and it also worked wonders there too.

Before trying this my favourite lip balm was the Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Aid, but I just can’t push it off the top spot. What I can do though is make some extra space for this one to fit alongside it. Whilst the Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Aid is better with exfoliating, it also has a shimmer. This one is better at maintaining the lips when they’re exfoliated, but it is also shimmer free so better for those days that you don’t necessarily want a lip gloss looking finish. Both of them contain medical grade lanolin, so I think as a team they work really well.

It is comparable to the Lanolips 101 Treatment though, so if you have tried that in the past and enjoyed it then this is one to check out for sure.

Overall, I think the best way to round up this review and end it is to bring up the fact that they say that mums know best. Nursing mothers fell in love with this product for a reason and it became popular for a reason: it works, and it works very darn well. 

If you have trouble with dry lips, I definitely recommend checking out the Original Nipple Balm.

You can purchase the Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips from Look Fantastic.
